The Most Darling Handmade Holiday Gifts

Personally, I think it’s super important to have access to high quality, handmade items by small businesses at our fingertips. Going to craft and holiday fairs just isn’t as easy with a little one, so I like to scour the pages of Etsy to find sweet little happies that remind me of some special people in my life.

Here are some suggestions from my favorite shops for affordable + adorable holiday gift ideas and stocking stuffers!

Sadie and Bean Boutique

Amanda over at Sadie and Bean Boutique creates the sweetest embroidered pieces. Last Valentine’s Day, Josie donned an adorable monogrammed onesie and I’m sure we’ll be back this year! My favorite picks for the holidays are the personalized pillow with a pocket for books, a gift sack from Santa himself (name is embroidered – not printed!), and these little one piece outfits for boys and girls alike. To die for!

Thread and Felt

Are you a Christmas ornament collector? I am! I love adding to the collection every year. My favorite kind of ornament is handmade and felt. It just makes my heart happy. These precious little ornaments are designed and handmade by Thread and Felt owner Mytyl. She blends her two hobbies of drawing and hand sewing to make these creations. So sweet and all under $12!

Little Lemon Treasures

If you have a new baby in your life, consider one of these must-have accessories! Little Lemon Treasures specializes in silicone and wood nursing and teething necklaces, mommy & me sets, pacifier clips and children’s jewelry. My top picks are all things made in their BPA food grade silicone. Plus they are super duper adorable and the colors are crazy on trend. I know a certain toddler that would love her own necklace (hint hint, Santa!) Bonus: Currently offering FREE SHIPPING on domestic orders.

Bethany Joy Art

Bethany Joy Art makes some upbeat + hand painted pieces year round, but she really outdid herself with her holiday collection. How charming are her ceramic Christmas bulbs?! Any of her work would make a perfect gift for that peppy + sparkly person in your life. Fabulous and fun!

Curly and Gus Baby Co

I recently discovered Curly & Gus Baby Co – my heart was stolen immediately. The cutest and cuddliest little booties, my goodness. They also sell little baby bows and bibs, but the baby shoes are everything! Their holiday collection is woodsy + warm + whimsical. Check out the soft sole boots above (bottom left), you can roll the cuff down for a more everyday look. You can also choose a rubber sole for those little ones that are already running around!

Thanks for checking out my handmade favorites for the upcoming holiday season! Hope you were able to find something you love and check it off your Christmas shopping list. If you like this post, let me know by leaving a comment down below – that way I know to keep writing these types of blogs.
