Like other creatives I know, Etsy has become my go-to for pretty much everything these days. I love supporting small businesses, and I love the variety and creativity of the products you find on Etsy, especially regarding personalized heirloom products.
Hallpants turned 3 this spring and I wanted to get him something special for his big day. I tend to collect little toys and knick-knacks through the year for Christmas, but I love giving extra special things on our niece and nephews’ birthdays while they’re young. I usually try to hand make something special, but this year I just didn’t find the time.
Hall has officially entered the train stage of toddler-hood, and has the coolest train table I would have looooooooved as a kid. After a quick search on Etsy, I discovered All Aboard Whistle’s shop! Stacy makes custom conductor hats with embroidered names, and even burns your child’s name into classic wooden train whistles. I wish I had seen the option to add a personalized message on Hall’s, I totally would have! The whistle came wrapped in a red bandanna (so cute!) and I gave it along with Hall’s little conductor hat. It seems to have been a hit!
I know Stacy will be slammed with holiday orders so if you’re thinking of ordering a set for the little conductor in your life, don’t delay too long- Click here to visit her Etsy shop! :)
