Last Minute Handmade Holidays: Gift Guide for Babies
When it comes to holiday shopping, I always try to mix up my gift-giving with hand-made gifts amongst the steadfast, name-brand winners.
The only downfall (for those last minute shoppers anyways), being that unless you are hitting a local craft show or boutique shop that sells independent artisan made goods, then you won’t be picking up handmade, one of a kind goods in the last week before the big day.
As online shopping options come to a close (remember to allow for shipping time!) why not pick out one of these truly darling gifts for the little baby in your life and support a small business while you’re at it?
Have fun looking…

It’s not too late! You have a few days left to get something handmade with love and quality for your little sweetheart this Holiday season.
Organic Baby Hat and Bib Set
I love these little sets, perfect for a newborn baby. Made with buttery soft organic cottons and flannel, the hat features one of those awesome adjustable knotty tops to fit all teeny heads as they grow.
Baby's 1st Ornament - Personalized
We’re all suckers for hooking our baby up with their own first ornament, especially the personalized ones. At least I know I am. A number of ready to ship shapes and designs are still available!
Handmade Moccasins Infant Size – Strawberry
These beaded moose hide moccasins are a genuine piece of Aboriginal artwork, featuring hand-tanned moosehide, beaver fur trim with a beautiful beadwork upper. Precious and cozy.
Best Friend Bear Organic Cotton Stuffed Toy
Available in 2 different sizes, made with the most luxuriously soft organic fabrics.
Wooden Teether Rattle Owl
Made by one of my biggest internet crushes going, I love everything about this little teether rattle (owls!) and the family – husband/wife duo who makes them. We have many of their toys at home and love giving them as gifts!
Organic Muslin Swaddling Blanket Set - Grey Elephants
Comes with swaddle, burp cloth, 2 wipes and drawstring pouch!
Sweet Baby Grey Moccasin Booties
Hand-knitted and embroidered adorableness, ready to ship in a variety of newborn, baby and toddler sizes and colours!
Knit Cotton Alpaca Cardigan for Baby 0-1 Years
Hand-knit with the most delicious of soft alpaca wool with extra wide arms for easy dressing.
Modern Nativity Set in Wood
This 10 pc. wooden play-set set is way. Too. Cute. An heirloom gift that your baby will cherish from year to year, no matter how big they get.
Rudolph The Reindeer and Santa WOOLY Rattle Balls
I die. You die. These are simply irresistable and bowl me over with their cuteness. I ordered this shop’s froggie jingle rattle ball a few years ago for my son for his first Christmas and it’s still a favoured toy.
Acorn The Woodland Owl Plush
Ever darling, remember this is for your BABY – not you! (But you can cuddle it, I’ll never tell).
Baby Sorbet Tartan Hat 6 to 12 Months
The sweetest little trapper around! A perfect gift for little ones who live in the coldest of climates.
SALE - Organic rosewood onesie with dusty purple fox pendant 3-6 Months
So dang cute. We had this one once upon a time ago for our young lad, although it met it’s demise with a can of house paint. Don’t ask. I’m still bitter about it. (Hey! I could have passed it on to his sister!)
Baby's 1st Stocking
The best thing about ordering handmade are the add-ons and customizations you can get. Either ask for your baby’s name to be embroidered on to this beauty or do it yourself upon arrival! (I would cut out thicker felt letters and sew them on instead of embroidering so they really stand-out against that gorgeous, authentic, Pendleton wool fabric.)
LOVELY LOVEBIRD organic cotton winter baby blanket
Made with 2 layers of thick, velvety soft organic cotton flannel, featuring a hand-cut and sewn bird applique. Lovely love indeed!
Starfish, Sea Stars
Those plush, bright and textured tentacles are just calling to your baby!
Willow The White Deer-Moose
Now this is some taxidermy I can get behind. Would be adorable in a baby’s nursery on the wall year ’round!
Ready to ship in a variety of sizes and colours, this is one good looking fox!
Rainy Day Racer- Maple Wooden Pull Toy
Made of solid maple and ready to go!
Organic Stacking Toy and Bird Teether
Cut from walnut and maple, offering the contrast babies love.
Organic Soft Blocks, Set of Ten 2" Blocks
Lots of natural, tactile fun to be had here. Love that it comes in a drawstring pouch that you/baby can use for other things!
Small Rainbow Stacker
This hand-crafted little wooden rainbow stacker will keep your baby happily engaged in imaginative play with it’s endless stacking/staging options.
Made from felted, repurposed wool sweaters, these are truly one of a kind and adorable in a zombie sort of way.
Raining Love Hearts Cloud Mobile
A charming and whimsical addition to any baby’s nursery.
