When looking through my instagram finding small shops for girls I found some really cute ideas. These can be for babies, nursery decor or toys for older girls. All these shops are adorable and if they sell out (small businesses can only take on so many orders) please get a gift card from their shop. If you had something specific in mind you wanted to purchase from a small shop print out a picture and wrap it with the gift card. Brandon has done that for me a few times when he was unsure of a size or the item wouldn’t arrive on time.
Worthington Art Peg Dolls:
These are the cutest things in the world. I made Aria some for Christmas and she loves playing with them. They are no where as cute as what Cami can make. I believe her shop is busy right now but consider a gift card or delayed purchase. I am waiting for her to do family peg dolls again because I would love to get one of my family. Keep in mind these are hand painted items so production may be a bit, but it’s well worth it.
Because regular doll house furniture isn’t anywhere near as cute as what Jen can make. I fell in love with some of the kitchen pieces and living room pieces she has made. Again if the shop is sold out consider gift cards or delayed purchases. Hand made items take time.
This really cute brand, Grace and Parker, have so many cute baby and toddler items that not only provide teething comfort but helps with developing sensory skills. This shop is full of fun stocking stuffers. I want to get little man the tool teething toys. Too bad I didn’t know about this shop with Little Miss.
Childhood clothing is such a cute brand. I found them on instagram and fell in love with all the cute sweat suits and hoodies for babies. They are all so stylish and adorable for the colder months. This shop was started by Meredith who began by sewing cute little hoodies for her gifts for her friends and family. She would sew during nap time and stay up till 3 am some nights to get them finished. Her hard work has definitely paid off this shop is adorable.
Head Wrap Bows
Now I have been able to see this journey from the get go. I follow the shop owner Rachel on instagram and watched her start sewing these head wraps. She is so sweet, so relatable and so talented. A girl can never have too many bows especially as a baby.
Audrey & Bear is a company that worked with me when I was really new at blogging. A percentage of every order goes to Swaddle4Swaddle, a non-profit that donates blankets to NICU babies across the country and for every swaddle purchased, a swaddle is donated. What an incredible gift to give someone. You can have it customized with a name or nickname. Choose the font, color, and style. Such a great idea for kids who like to sleepover with their grandparents or cousins.
We own four of these swaddle blankets and they are the cutest. They are soft and breathable, ours shipped incredibly fast but that may be different around the holidays. From Disney prints to modern prints they have something for everyone.
I have been subscribed to this company for almost two years now I think. They have the cutest little girl bows. Little miss loves getting a new set every month. Stella Bella has the most affordable bow subscription that I have seen and the bows are well made and gorgeous. You can choose alligator clips or headbands.
I have one for each of the kids and I love documenting their lives. It take just an hour here and there to update the books. There are places to put pictures, or drawings. You record special moments you have had with them and little things they may have said or done for that year. I love these journals.
I hope that helps you while shopping small this Holiday season.
