CoolMomPicks is a blog offering the best tips and products for parents and families.
CoolMomPicks is a blog created by Kristen Chase and Liz Gumbinner. Kristen, Liz and their team find the best gear, home products, toys, gifts and clothes for the modern parent. There’s also a sister site called CoolMomTech that features apps and gadgets. Neither site features sponsored products, so all of the reviews can be trusted. They do, however, occasionally feature affiliate links if you want to support them by making a purchase on a third-party site. The CoolMomPicks blog is regularly updated, and not all of the posts are product recommendations. A recent article, for instance, finds one of the site’s writers testing the Konmari Method of organization on her own closet.
The personal writing style is what sets CoolMomPicks apart from its competition. The site’s writers explain how the products they feature fit into their own lives, crafting honest and entertaining reviews. The writing is informative but informal, truly catering to the “cool moms” of the world. One subcategory under Gear, for instance, is called “Strollers + Stroller-y Things.” There’s a Food + Drink section featuring “Recipes We Love,” and a Kids section featuring “Kids’ Music That’s Actually Good.” The site also has a DIY section featuring home decor and craft projects. Its Gift Guides are useful whenever a holiday rolls around. These are all small examples of the many wonderful types of editorial content that can be found on CoolMomPicks. All modern parents should add this site to their list of regular reading material.
