This second instalment of our little gift guide for little covers the wears. We will be starting a tradition for Eleanor where we gift her one want, one wear, and one need every Christmas and despite the bad rap clothing gets I always loved getting it as a kid. For now I have to admit it is as much a gift for me as it is for Eleanor, because I have a lot of fun picking out her clothing.
The pieces we love are almost exclusively from the small shops and makers we love to support. It can be difficult to order from small shops this time of year because they often sell out their inventory, or can have lead times that make meeting that Christmas deadline difficult. If you hurry there are still some purchases to be made you can feel good about for the holidays, so let’s dive right in.
It is no secret to anyone following this blog, or my instagram feed, that we love Misha and Puff. These heirloom quality pieces will keep your babe warm all winter long. The popcorn sweater is the cutest, coziest, most beautiful sweater I have ever seen, little or big. If you’re not looking for such an investment piece I also swear by their accessories. Anything from their line will keep your little warm and adorable all winter long.
Another favourite of ours Briar Handmade just had a shop restock of their winter pom pom and woodland bonnets. These babies are made of the softest, coziest, wools and cottons that will keep those little ears snug all winter.
Eleanor has this little Rylee and Cru bear sweat shirt in rust and she wears it every other day. It’s warm, adorable and still looks brand new. There are only a few sizes left, but you might just luck out for your little bear.
Looking for the perfect Christmas dress? This classic linen Alice dress from Tortoise & the Hare is beautiful and will stand the test of time in your family photos.
This one might be pushing it to arrive before Christmas if you live on my side of the pond, and don’t have a family member coming to visit for the holiday, but how cozy does this merino wool fleece suit look? So cozy.
Baby unicorn hat, enough said.
Sweet shop Willaby is offering holiday bundle deals of some of their cutest outfits, plus free domestic shipping for the next few days. This little plaid set would be perfect for holiday lounging.
