a few of our {earth tone} favorite things

There's something about rich, natural earth tones for little ones that are sophisticated, timeless, and classy. It's also a bonus when you need to shop gender neutral or buy pieces that'll coordinate well or compliment favorite accent colors. Whether it's children's clothing, wooden toys, plush toys, bedroom decor, or other accessories, it's not hard to find gorgeous earth tones in all of these product lines.

Just in time for Small Business Saturday 2016, here are a few of our favorite earth tone things - all made by small shops in the USA. It's a win-win when you find that perfect, meaningful gift for a loved one and can handmade and independently owned at the same time. Merry, merry for everyone!

 

Pair neutrals with natural teething options, and you'll make both baby and mama happy. Fabric bead teething ring by Made with a MelodyMinnesota "locally grown" teether by Smiling Tree Toys, and beige teether clip by Loved by Sophia Claire

Sleepy Sloth, Big Foot, and Yeti by Slumberkins come with a SleepyTime Rhyme that promotes self-esteem, positive coping skills, and kindness. Just perfect for cuddling and that sense of security and familiarity that little ones crave at night time.

Baby moccs are a must for those first few months, and Potato Feet makes some of our faves. With elastic-fitted tops and a flexible, tactile sole moccasins ensure your little one puts his best foot forward as he starts out in this great big world.  Bonus: these are baby shoes that actually stay on those footsies!

 Do you suppose she's a wild flower? Savage Seeds is a modern brand for the nature inspired.  And we love that their line of children's and adult clothing is printed with non toxic inks on American Apparel.
