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…

    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

    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.)
