Mom Made Gifts - A Holiday Gift Feature

Ever search for a gift and feel at a loss? The things in the big box retailers just don't fit the bill? Sometimes that person you are giving to means so much more than a quick grab from a shelf! We've teamed up with some extremely talented local artisans for a feature post about some great out of the box gift options made by local Lehigh Valley moms! 

We have some amazing local artisans who have offered up some amazing (and adorable might I say) had crafted gift ideas which will WOW anyone! 

Mason J.A.R. Apparel has been making handmade block print children's clothing since 2011. Their organic T-shirts and bodysuits are sure to melt hearts.  Our first Mason J.A.R. Apparel shirt is carefully tucked away for our youngest to soon grow into and we were thrilled this year to get some new prints done for our older Strawberry loving girlies. Ours (shown below) will be gifts this year so we don't have any model shots since they're being hidden for the next few weeks! 

Jessica Russell, the owner of Mason J.A.R. Apparel takes so much pride in her work and each item she makes is carefully handcrafted on organic cotton bodysuits or T-shirts.  



Check out their amazing prints and custom select your order by choosing your print and bodysuit/t-shirt color. Orders my be placed online at or check out their Facebook page to follow along for their adorable items and watch for new prints coming out! 

Next in our feature is Wish Knits! This Lehigh Valley area mom owned knitting business can whip up anything from a cable knit hat to a Yoda hat perfect for that upcoming Star Wars release or a set of coordinating family Christmas stockings.

This is so super cute for the soon to be one year old!

I'm in love with these adorable winter hats we got from Jessica this season.  Her detachable bows and flowers are great and allow for the bows to be moved or worn without when desired.

Such an awesome gift for a Jedi in training!

Her Facebook Page is loaded with her projects and samples of her work, If you see something you love let Jessica know! She also has samples of her work and a few items up for immediate shipping on her Etsy page!

Next we have an adorable option for that eco-conscious friend, sibling or neighbor you have! Martha Olsen of Dana and Doris offers super chic ways to stay environmentally friendly in your home. Find her items on Etsy or check out previews of her items on Facebook and browse her fabric options to custom design cloth napkins, unpaper towels or other eco friendly and budget friendly options that will cut your paper towel bill indefinitely.

We are thrilled about the new set of unpaper towels we got and with how cute they are you can't beat they will brighten up your kitchen and save you some cash too!
Take a look at the detailed photos above and you can see how the "roll" snaps together and can be placed right on to your paper towel holder for easy access.
