With Christmas less than a week away, there’s still time to find the perfect American made gift for your little ones!
As the founder of Oliver & Adelaide, my mission is to help parents with babies and toddlers discover and choose from hundreds of beautiful, handcrafted toys and furnishings “Made in the USA.”
Below are six ideal gift ideas for babies – and yes, for moms, this holiday season.
Love it! This mobile will bring any child’s room a burst of cheer during the long winter nights. Each colorful ball is made of warm and cozy wool felt. These are priced just right at $65 for the holidays.
2. The Classic Wooden Robot, AE Wooden Toys
The perfect stocking stuffer for any toddler! By seamlessly combining the technology of a robot made with wood, these will easily entertain for hours. You will keep it forever – even if it was once a chew toy. The larger guy is $40 and the small guy is $25.
3. Cleverly Crafted Breakfast Bowl and Cup, Abby Berkson Ceramics
Where else can you find a cute dining set for your child with a wonderful illustration of a narwhal? Each piece is slightly unique because they are individually crafted. If your children love oatmeal and honey on cold winter mornings as much as mine do, this will be the perfect gift to help them warm their tummies. The mugs are $20 and the bowls are $34.
4. Cozie Cashmere Onesie and Mitten, Ggrippo
Made of 100% upcycled cashmere, each piece is one of a kind. The color combinations are elegant soft neutrals and pastels that work for boys and girls, and will stay in the family for the next generation. Your little one will truly be your toasty cuddle bear in these cashmere pieces. The Onesie is $90 and the fabulous fingerless gloves are $36.
5. Stylish Barn Coats, Koochi Ku
Versatility and durability is combined with style with these coats for boys and girls. These are made of a super-soft boiled wool that will keep your little ones warm when they are rolling around in the snow. The colors and patterns seem to be right from a kid’s imagination rather than something mass-produced. I love that the fabric and the coat are all made in the USA. Jackets retail for $128 to $185.
6. The Versatile Snowflake Clutch for Mom, Feel Handmade
We didn’t forget moms! Finally, there is a large clutch that can hold your iPad and still fit your baby wipes, diaper and other necessities. This leather snowflake clutch is perfect for the quick after-work hangout with the girls. And, you can’t beat $295 for completely handmade in the USA.
