This Spock Monkey ($40) is silly enough to grab a tot's interest and punny enough to please a Trekkie parent. Not ready for monkeys in space? Check out some of the other loony sock primates below.
In addition to all the fun (New Year's) and not so fun (broken windows) things going in January so far, North and I had plenty of company! Among our guests were an old college roommate and her boyfriend. Because they live all the way in Hong Kong, I had never met their super cute pooch, Lola, but I knew that I still had to buy the lass an pawsitivitely perfect pressie. After all, they recently rescued this dog who was abandoned in a shelter when she was too old to breed anymore, and I thought she deserved something sweet to snuggle. I hit up my favorite pet shop, George, and the minute I laid eyes on this toy, it immediately brought me back to the old days when my friend had a similar sock monkey sitting on her desk. What an ideal gift – and look how it's already so well-loved!
Rather than re-gifting (tacky), or breaking your empty piggy bank to buy gifts, why not make something? If you asked me, nothing says "I love you" like a sock monkey.
