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! :)
SO stinkin cute! Walt LOVES hats. Like obsessed. Like, woke up at 4 am today and screamed my eee-haaa ( aka yes-haw aka hat.) I will definitely save this link for when we hit the train phase! And as always, Hall pants is the cutest!
Hall and Henry still LOVE this gift! Bonus for me, Hall has used the personalized hats and whistles as educational toys. He reads the names on each of items and makes sure that he and Henry have the correct ones. It is so sweet! Thank you, Umcle Mate and Aunt Jeesey!
