How is the Christmas shopping going? Are you still looking for that perfect gift for someone? Have you considered giving gifts that are handmade?
If you’ve missed the craft fairs in your community, or you didn’t find what you were looking for, you don’t have to give up on handmade gifts. Many great handmade items are available online.
If you are in Canada, there is still time to order from Canadian shops and receive your items in time for Christmas. We still have 14 business days (i.e. Canada Post delivery days) left before Christmas.
I thought I would share some of the great handmade items that I found in Canadian shops, specifically some gift ideas for kids.
How great is this? Isn’t this Grey Frost Monster plush toy just the cutest? I want one for me! He comes with a tag that has his name, his birthday and his likes and dislikes. And he’s just one of several adorable little creatures available in Stuffed Silly’s shop.
Every child needs a hat (well, several hats really) so why not give the child in question a stylish hat that will make him look even more adorable than he already is? This brown newsboy hat by Gurly Stuff will fit the bill just perfectly. She has many styles for girls too.
Kids love to colour, and Anny May has made it easier to transport all your child’s colouring needs in this fun and eco-friendly bag. She recycled some blue jeans to make this bag, and added some cute, child-friendly barnyard animal fabric for added fun.
Who doesn’t love cookies? If you don’t have time to bake, or baking just isn’t your thing, these Awesome Ginger Molasses Cookies by Eccentric Ocean might be just perfect for the Cookie Monster in your life. Soft, chewy molasses cookies, yummm…
Okay, so this one isn’t for a human child, but for many, their cat is a member of the family. And kitty wants some new toys too. Your cat will love chasing the spider on this teaser toy by Jewelz Creatives. And you won’t have to go retrieve the mouse that kitty chased but failed to bring back. It’s the perfect toy for cat and human.
