Buy hand-crafted, eco-friendly baby gifts on Etsy

Do you want unique, eco-friendly gifts for your little one that are handmade here in the U.S.A.?  What about shopping on www.etsy.com?  Etsy sells wares made by crafters that are much more interesting than mass-produced stuff from Babies R Us.  We’ve already mentioned the great fabric bibs from Enchanted Dandelions.  Here are some other shops worth checking out.

Warm and Fuzzy Baby–Darling organic hats, blankets, and booties.

Organic Quilt Company–Stunning organic baby quilts for very reasonable prices.

New England Gift Company–Ribbon-lined organic hooded baby towels and retro-print baby blankets.

Lovey Duds–Organic wraps to tote baby around in, plus some “hooter hiders” in colorful organic fabrics.

Maiden Love–Soft flannel elephant toys stuffed with wool and organic lavender.

Babus–Soft fabric blocks made from recycled fabrics, plus some wool teethers.

Simple Dreams–An ingenious little “gift pouch” for a gift certificate that can later be used to keep a lock of baby’s hair or a first tooth.

Agape Luv–Eco-friendly kimonos for baby, made from organic or recycled fabric and “solar power sewn”!

Wooly Baby–Adorable, warm baby slippers made from recycled sweaters.

  1. I’m always so impressed with others’ ingenuity and entrepreneurialism. I have this bad habit of seeing stuff like that and saying, “oh, I could make that” and then never do. Those are such cute hats! I want one for me.

  2. Thank you for mentioning my shop! I’m embarrassed as I have very little stocked in my shop. However, I’m always up for a custom order, so please don’t hesitate to contact me! 🙂

    Also, I wanted to say that I just ordered small wool teething ring set from Babus and it is AMAZING! I was actually going to blog about it with a picture of my 5mo (because I couldn’t wait until xmas to give it to him *wink*).

  3. Thanks for the great links. I never know where to start on Etsy because there are so many amazing products.

  4. These links are great–there are so many stores on Etsy it’s hard to find stuff–I love it, though.

  5. If you love Etsy and other small companies that make natural handmade goods, they need your help. The new CSPIA legislation contains provisions that are likely to put sellers of these items out of business. This is due to the high cost of testing which will be required to make the products legal to sell in the US.

  6. Sorry, that should be CPSIA.

  7. Here’s another site worth checking out:
