Good Questions: Modern Baby Gift Ace-in-the-Hole?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

Julie, my co-worker, asks the following: “I need a baby gift. It’s important: the baby is named after me. The parents are very cool and into modern design. So, I’m looking for a shop — online or in Manhattan – that might sell some…. outfit, blanket, toy. it doesn’t need to be a necessity (they have all the basics as this is their second child.)”

She’s checked but came up empty. What would you recommend?

Thanks! Cyrano de B.
