2. astronaut duvet cover by snurk beddengoed  

snuck beddengoed yet another brand based in amsterdam creates the coolest bedding, pillows and pajamas. i think these fun designs are perfect for toddlers and older kids alike. i really, really wanted to get Pax the dino but i checked in with him several times and each time he was super scared of the dino so i chose the astronaut for him! he'll be ready to blast off to the moon soon! a personal favorite is the ballerina!! how sweet?!

3. hugo tan burnished monkey boots from munchkin et moi 

i fell in love with this little online boutique based out of san francisco because owner Nicola carries only the sweetest european shoes. seriously if you look at her collection of treasures you will fall in love too! and if you have a girl you're even luckier because this girl styles she has are swoon worthy! Pax has this pair of young soles from her boutique and a vela sneaker and he wears them all.the.time! he is such a shoe lover i had to include them in this guide and i am also super excited to be bringing you an amazing giveaway with munchkin et moi this coming tuesday! all the info will be send out to my blog subscribers on monday, december 12th!

6. avery clear pacifier clip by templeton silver 

here's a perfect stocking stuffer! templeton silver creates a huge variety of beaded pacifier clips that not only look nicer but are also more hygienic than other pacifier clips. no worries, they are not dangerous for little kids as they've gone through safety testing as you can read about on their webpage. from boyish, to girly, to plain or customized, templeton silver has such great variety it's easy to find something for every taste. now i saved the best for last... the clips actually turn into bracelets once your baby outgrows the pacifier stage! how fun is that?! and i'm not gonna lie... i picked mine based on what i'd wear as a bracelet lol sorry pax:D use code "pax" for 25% off your order at templeton silver!

the little design co is a dream for anyone that has a girl! they sell the sweetest little headbands, collars, dresses, bloomers and then there are these amazing little backpacks! they come in lots of different color variance and with floral inserts and bows for the girly girl. i love Paxton's so much! it's the softest, nicest leather...very thick too! it has adjustable buckles so he can wear it for a while! Pax, who is not into wearing backpacks at all does like to wear this one around so it won my heart! the great quality will make this an awesome hand-me-down someday! use code "pax" for 20% off your order!

8. bamboo turkish towel poncho by house of jude 

house of jude has the softest and best smelling bamboo bath towels! after Pax got his i needed one for myself and my husband! i love these especially in the summer as they're very light weight! we brought Paxton's poncho to the beach all the time and he loved wearing it after playing in the water! even though this reminds more of a summer item i really needed to include it into this gift guide because really when do you ever treat yourself?! i am just trying to spread the word because i like these towels so much! check out the adult and baby versions as well as the blankets (which we own too) because everything is so, so good! use code "pax" for 10% off. these ship for  f r e e  worldwide!

ok that's it. to be honest i could go on and on because i know so many more unique brands that you guys would love but the list would get very long and chances are you've already looked at a bunch of different gift guides by now. however i would love to give more recommendations, so if you need anything more specific let me know and maybe i have a good idea!!

thanks for checking out all these small and talented brands and shops! give them a follow on their instagram to stay up to date!!

happy holidays! xo,

Larissa
