Know a little one that could use a cuddly friend? These plush animals handmade in Paris by Big Stuffed are almost too cute to be true. My favorite is the Big Grandpa Whale above, though the Bubble Whale is pretty handsome as well. They’d be so sweet wrapped in a bow under the Christmas tree!

Best of Etsy: Bisqit Porcelain and Ceramics

Looking for unique holiday gifts? I love these marbleized ceramics from Bisqit on Etsy. Made by hand in the Czech Republic, no two pieces are identical. The inside of the items are glazed while the outside is a handsome matte finish. Each piece is suitable for the microwave and dishwasher, making them equally practical and chic! A set of these tumblers would certainly be welcome under my Christmas tree. Explore all of Bisqit’s lovely designs here. READ POST

Best of Etsy: The Bee and The Fox

These sweet t-shirts by The Bee and The Fox stole my heart. The “Mama Bird” tee may be my first purchase when we get pregnant. After many disappointing delays due to my health (hypothyroidism is such a drag…), we are hoping to finally begin our first round of IVF at the end of the month. I’m nervous (never been a big fan of needles), but am so excited to get started creating our little miracle baby (this onesie made me laugh). If fertility issues are something you’d like to hear more about I’m happy to share more about our experience. Just let me know. Meanwhile, explore more of The Bee and The Fox’s cute t-shirts here.

Best of Etsy: The Basket Room

I first stumbled upon The Basket Room on Etsy and was later delighted to spot their beautiful creations in person at London’s Pentreath & Hall. I brought home this pink basket and am already itching to add to my collection. Founded by two women in the UK in partnership with women’s weaving cooperatives in Africa, each unique basket is woven by hand. The company describes their goods as “ethical, stylish, accessories with a story.” Love the sound of that! From bicycle baskets to market totes, explore all of The Basket Room’s offerings here.
