As The Beatles taught us, all you need is love—but a little hope, faith and peace don’t hurt, either. Nor does a great tank top to serve as a reminder of the power of these four little words. She’ll state her case in style with this soft eco-friendly tank, crafted from 100 percent organic cotton. The true-to-size attention-getter is made in the USA and will attract positive energy wherever it wears its welcome. She’ll love that she can lounge around the house in comfort, throw a hoodie over it for a grocery store run, or pair it with a blazer when she wants to show she’s serious about her virtues.
The Mommy-and-Me Organic Pajama gift set from iPlay is made from organic cotton, vegetable dyes and served up in an eco-friendly box. Available in pink, blue or green, this darling duo keeps Mom and Baby comfy, cozy and cool.
