A good friend of mine and her husband welcomed their first baby recently, and I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect gift to send them in celebration of their new addition. Like me, my friend has an appreciation for all things handmade and loves seeking out beautiful things that she’ll keep for a lifetime. So naturally this lead me to decide that a lovely handmade toy of some kind would be the prefect gift. And naturally, I couldn’t resist the urge to share my finds with you. Have a little one to buy for? Here are 10 awesome handmade toys!
