This Season’s 52 Cutest Gifts for Children
When shopping for ourselves, we're inundated with editorially curated sites from Net-a-Porter and Farfetch to Moda Operandi — making holiday shopping simple. The luxury kids industry, however, lacked the same kind of aggregated online marketplace, making shopping for your kids a never-ending game of hide and seek.

Frustrated by their own experiences shopping as mothers, long-time friends and former Vogue editors Sylvana Ward Durrett and Luisana Mendoza de Roccia launched luxury children’s e-tailer Maisonette, an expertly curated site for all things mini.
From clothing and accessories to home decor and toys, Maisonette is the one-stop-shop for hard-to-find children’s brands and independent boutiques from all over the world. So close out the 16 tabs you have open and spare yourself the trip to Toys ”R” Us this holiday season because you won’t find any of these gifts there.
Below, Sylvana and Luisana share their favorite picks for this season's best kids' gifts, all available on Maisonette.com.
Luisana: “We love the idea of taking winter whites up a notch by infusing chic, silvery metallics to their apparel and toys. Obsessed with those Hello Shiso polar bear hair clips!”
Sylvana: “Add some color to their lives with fun art, toys and games in every color of the rainbow. We’re especially loving this heart-shaped purse by GAIA Empowered Women. All GAIA Empowered Women bags are handmade by refugee women resettled in Dallas. Any brand that helps cultivate a brighter future for women is a brand we want to get behind — with our daughters, no less.”
Luisana: “For a cozy night in during the holidays (and beyond), we’re loving holiday-inspired gifts like this classic PJ set by Petite Plume.”

Sylvana: “Stock up on camping apparel and gear for your outdoorsy adventurer. He’ll be wearing those Albetta bear slippers all winter long.”
Luisana: “Foster your globe-trotting mini with travel-inspired gifts. How cute is our exclusive Maisonette x Paravel canvas bag with one-of-a-kind patches? It’s the perfect bag for you and your growing travelers to enjoy for years to come!”
