Congrats to Laila Valade!! She is the winner of this amazing #babybundlegiveaway!! Thank you to all of you for reading and entering, and thank you to all of these wonderful Etsy shops for participating!!
I love to find a unique and special gift for new baby friends; a little something not on the registry and something with character. You know I love Etsy, so I thought I'd share some of my favorite gift finds for a new baby (and mom) on there. I not only love how fabulous these items are, but I love that they were hand crafted with love and have an affordable price tag. Love supporting small business when we can! You'll also note that many of these wonderful Etsy shops are based in Maine which is a double win (support small & support local)!
