Top 50 Shopping Sites for Moms, 2011
Leaving the house with a kid or more in tow to shop is not on the top of any parent's priority list. Thankfully you can pretty much buy anything from toilet paper to teething rings online, but sometimes you want that personal assistance typically found in stores. These 50 blogs and sites offer just that, whether it's through helpful product picks and sage advice, photos and instructional videos, or just by including heavy doses of humor.
While it was almost impossible to narrow the list down to just 50 sites, we've included a wide mix of products and price points for your shopping pleasure. So whether you're looking for that perfect pair of jeans, eco-friendly baby gear, or great gifts for all ages, we hope these sites will make navigating the mega-mall that is cyberspace just a little bit easier. Did we miss any of your favorites? Nominate them here! - Christina Ohly Evans

What We Covet’s Rankings
Why we love it: Written by an American living in Europe, Decor 8 features long posts on the author’s design finds of the day. This site is more like reading a friend’s diary – very chatty, with lots of tangents about her childhood, upcoming book tours, and musings on life. One of the best features is the author’s extensive list of shops from around the globe (and in a variety of price ranges). From Austin, Texas, to Stockholm, Sweden, she has personally picked the best boutiques from around the globe. We also love her “Faves” section, which highlights the best design blogs and books as well as her interviews with today’s tastemakers (Rachel Ashwell of Shabby Chic, husband and wife team Zia Priven).
