Every year I LOVE the idea of shopping small, supporting local businesses, and giving really personal, meaningful gifts to friends and family. But then I procrastinate or see the crowds parked at the mall, and decide to stick with easy online shopping (with free two day shipping ;).
So you can bet I was SO excited to find out about Amazon Handmade, a collection of products on Amazon that are handcrafted, unique, and support small businesses. You still get the convenience of shopping on Amazon (and everything I ordered had Prime two-day shipping) but they have an incredible selection of handmade wooden toys and other giftable items. Over 50% of the items are made to order so you can find something to customize and keep your gifting super personal this year.
I found some gorgeous hand carved wooden trucks for Lincoln and I can’t wait for him to open them on Christmas morning! There is something so classic about handmade wooden toys and I love knowing that these were carved by hand right here in the US. The quality and craftsmanship on the two truck we ordered is so impressive and I hope these are the toys we keep and pass down for generations.
I also picked up a lacing toy for Adelaide that will hopefully keep her quietly entertained for a few minutes on Sundays and a beautiful leather phone case for me (I couldn’t hold off and use it as a stocking stuffer because it went straight onto my phone).
My brown leather case is sold out already! They have a few left of the gorgeous maroon color and black.
The Amazon Handmade site does a great job sorting things into categories to make picking handmade wooden toys and other gifts this holiday super convenient. I browsed through things for Ben and my toddlers but they also have great options for friends, parents, and in-laws.
Here are my favorite handmade wooden toys on Amazon Handmade right now:
- This handmade busy board ($45 + shipping)
- This wooden fractions puzzle ($15 and prime shipping!)
- This wooden pickup truck ($20 and prime shipping – we ordered this one!)
- This wooden toy logging truck ($30 + shipping)
- This moving truck and trailer ($45 + shipping)
- All of these are great wooden toys for babies and young toddlers
- This wooden dump truck (under $20 + shipping)
- This wooden tractor trailer set (under $30 with free prime shipping! – this is my favorite piece we ordered!)
