For your mini-me:

You can never have too much protection, especially on the littler members of the family. This Baby Sun Hat by Rikshaw Design is a great option for bohemian babies who appreciate some handmade quality in their seasonal accessories. The charming pink fish design is our pick, but the hat comes in two other hand-printed patterns that are entirely lovely.
