When it comes to shopping for children’s gifts, the question isn’t what to buy– the TV, radio, and internet is FULL of gifts for kids. Instead, you’ll need to decide which gifts are fun, meaningful, and well-made. At Mosaic Makers Collective, we’ve put together a gift guide for children full of unique gifts, handmade by local female artists. Stand out from the crowd of commercialism this year by supporting local small businesses.
7 perfect gifts for the little ones in your life
Dinosaur Hooded Towel – $40
Is there anything cuter than a kiddo in costume? If you’re shopping for a little one who can’t get enough of dress-up time, they’ll love this dinosaur hooded towel by Yikes Twins. Not even bathtime will get in the way of playing make-believe!
Handmade Doll- Azalea Style – $125
Target has dozens of dolls– but none are as special as Handpicked By Ruby’s Azalea doll. The Azalea is a completely customizable handmade doll with 22 options for hair color and style and multiple eye, skin, and lip tones for a doll that is one-of-a-kind! As for outfits, select a sundress, crop top and pants, or sleeveless top and shorts– you can even request a specific color or pattern for the doll’s outfit!
Baby Bear- White – $45
Cozy Cricket amped up the “AWWW” factor with her hand-crocheted Baby Bear outfit. Choose a white or brown set– complete with a diaper cover and hat with ears. With sizes ranging from newborn to 6 months, this is an adorable outfit for newborn photos or any occasion!
Crayon Roll – $16.50
This is a gift for a child… but parents will love it, too! If you know a little artist with a tendency to leave their art supplies everywhere, a crayon roll is a colorful and creative gift! Coral Bunny and Lo’s fun, brightly colored crayon rolls hold eight crayons each and are easy to throw in the car for a screen-free distraction at restaurants.
Rainbow Moccasins – $46
If you go ga-ga for teeny tiny feet in teeny tiny shoes, Prickly Pair Goods has the perfect gift for you! Her hand-painted rainbow moccasins are absolutely adorable and the soft-soled shoes are buttery soft for the baby’s comfort.
Pack of Cars Color Block – $20
If you know a little dude or dudette who loves cars and art, Novare Studio’s car colorblocks are a fun DIY gift. Wooden cutouts come in many different shapes and are designed to be decorated with markers for a colorful toy your child creates themself!
Frida Kids Shirt- Pink/Gray – $34
Who doesn’t love Frida Kahlo? She was an inspirational Mexican painter who was unapologetically herself– and we think that’s something worth celebrating! Mi Cielo’s Frida kids’ shirts come in pink and gray and range in size from infant to youth medium. This gift is a great way to start a conversation with a little girl about true beauty and self-confidence!
