Another gift guide from Market Day's Director of Making Friends, Laura. So what if she threw in a little self-promoting gift wrap... she's here to help you find that special, handmade gift for everyone on your holiday shopping list. Our makers are crafting their socks off (or crafting socks for you to put on) as Black Friday sneaks up on us. Let's get ready to shop, shall we?
A Gift Guide For the Kiddos:
The kiddos need some #hohohandmade gifts too and this year Market Day has makers with kid friendly wares for all ages (including grown ups who still like crayons.)
For the well-dressed little one:
Leo and Lola want the kids looking adorable, all the time. A sweet little pullover with pockets? I want one too. This top is made of sweatshirt material, stretchy, cozy and warm for the upcoming chilly months. Pick up one, or three, for the chic little one on your gift list.
For the kid (or grown up) who loves crayons:
Full disclosure, I made this, so this is basically self-promoting, but after you pick up all these great gifts at Market Day, you'll need to wrap them. XO-LP offers color-your-own gift wrap for the kids (and the kid in all of us) to customize. It's a personal touch for all the wrappin' needs of the season.
For the snuggly babies:
The little ones are going to love the adorable (and huggable) stuffed elephants from Amos the Famous. These hand stitched cuddle buddies are made with love and based on a depression era pattern from Amos the Famous' great-grandmother.
Jazz up the baby's room with a fluffy pillow from the Sara Initiative. All little girls should be reminded that "We can do it." Find a throw pillow for the rocking chair and the living room, she'll have plenty to choose from.
There will be so much more to see on Friday, November 28th at the Kirkwood in Downtown Des Moines. Black Friday Market Day is a family event with a little something for everyone, even Santa's little helpers.
See you there,
