Recently I had the chance to visit Babesta located in TriBeCa, for an exclusive look at their Top 20 picks of unique items from around the world for holiday gift ideas.

Some of the items that made Babesta's Top 20 Holidays Picks list included:

  • ESP No. 1 Jeans: Line of modern, unisex looks with poppy colors in “new neutrals” that mix and match with loads of things. $72
  • Smash Scrapbook and accessories kit: A perfect gift for a tween, new parent or anyone who wants to capture memories in a super cool way. There are even “baby book” versions for mom!
  • Cardishirtigan by La Miniatura: Project Runway’s Jeffery Sebelia line of cool boys’ clothing. This cardishirtigan is half cardigan half button down shirt. $104

Babesta Threads Top 20 Holidays Picks

  • Loog Guitar: The three-string guitar makes it fun and easy for kids to play music. Children will be able to build and then play a real guitar. $149

  • Indie Button Factory by Chronicle: Kids can bring a little flair to their book bags, coats and shirts by making their own buttons. Great DIY for boys or girls. $18.95

  • Starry Sweatshirt Dress by Bobo Choses: This line incorporates stars, faces and cats. This dress has simplicity, which is a hallmark of the line, coupled with handmade touches like the cross embroidery at the bottom of the dress. $72
  • Snow Globe by Seedling Kids: You mold the clay, bake it like a shrinky dink and then let it set. Later you add water and glitter and voila! This is a great, whimsical snowy-day activity! $28
