9 Gift Ideas for Kids
Here are some gift ideas for the little ones in your life! Of course, every kid has such different interests and preferences, but I hope that this at least gives you some inspiration and perhaps introduces you to a new wonderful brand or two!
1) Pillows from Fair + Simple
These adorable pillows are the perfect size to hug and are made with love at a sewing center for women in the Philippines in need of sustainable employment in a safe environment.
2) Carnival play Set from Petit Collage
Bright and colorful toys like this carnival set from Petit Collage are made of non-toxic ingredients, painted with veggie-based inks, designed in California, and brought to life in well-audited factories.
3) MATTER PRINTS Apparel
These adorable clothes for kids are made entirely from off-cut fabrics that would have otherwise gone to waste. The company itself has been a favorite of mine for years due to their focus on preserving heritage, sustainable manufacturing and intention through every step of their supply chain.
4) Pinch Toys
Minimalist and beautiful toys crafted from materials such as cotton, felt, wood and non toxic paints are sure to please. Handmade in Croatia, they’re beautiful enough to double as home decor!
5) MIKOLEÓN Shoes
Is there anything cuter than tiny shoes? Nope. Micoleón has some adorable options (in addition to great apparel) for little guys and little gals! They have a beautiful partnership with artisans in Guatemala and produce entirely from sustainable materials.
6) Fair + Simple Clothes
I already linked to their pillows, but they have some awesome apparel items for kids too! Made with love at a sewing center for women in the Philippines in need of sustainable employment in a safe environment, these items are also created out of completely sustainable and natural materials.
7) Age to Come Apparel
Ethically made streetwear for kiddos. Need I say more? Cuteness and coolness overload. Every item is ethically made and a portion of profits is donated to a home for children with disabilities in Xiamen China as well as a foster care nonprofit in Oregon.
8) Zeki Learning Toys
This amazing brand creates high quality learning materials for preschool age children that support cognitive development and language learning. At their artisan center in the West Bank, they train and employ refugee and low-income mothers to make beautifully handcrafted educational products.
9) The Little Market Stuffed Animals
So fluffy, so sweet. These stuffed animals are created by an organization called Inspired Peru which is an artisan cooperative consisting of 35 artisans; the majority are widows and heads of household from indigenous communities in the Peruvian highlands.
