If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed my obsession with handmade goods. I love to shop small, not only because I receive high quality and unique items, but also because I know that this way I support someone’s dream or some talented hands who are passionate about what they are creating.
I have listened our favorite handmade and organic baby shops that sell handcrafted, earth friendly, modern and stylish products that are functional and safe for babies and can compliment the look of your modern home and nursery. Sounds good? Scroll down to discover!

Tinytinks is a UK based online shop owned by lovely Danielle who creates wonderful personalized dollies and different accessories for them. Each dolly is handmade from the softest highest quality materials and dressed in designer fabrics. You can use your imagination and create your own dolly, by choosing her hairdo and adding different accessories. You can even add a name on her skirts or hair bow. There are no limits! Our favorite is Tallulah Bunny – the cutest of all Tinytinks’ creatures. We ordered one for our baby’s first birthday, and it was a magical gift!

Little Blue Nest
Snuggle up your little bird with these beautifully illustrated, premium grade swaddling blankets. Ila, founder and owner of Little Blue Nest, collaborates with talented illustrators to make beautifully unique pattern designs you won’t find in the typical high street baby shop. Each blanket is made with the finest pre-washed and softened GOTS certified organic cotton muslin, it’s luxuriously softer and thicker to touch than non-organic muslin, AND it gets only softer and snugglier the more it’s used and washed.
Go on their website, and I bet you won’t leave without purchasing one!
Bumble & Bee
Bumble & Bee is an online shop owned by “work-from-home stay-at-home small biz crazy lady” Melissa who creates wooden accessories for babies AND moms. All her products are handmade in her own home studio in Sweden, using the best materials, including 100% recycled yarns – leftover remnant from the textile industry and natural wood mostly from a local wood producer. No two beads are the same as they are beautiful with imperfections and varying color tones. The wood is gently sanded, soft to touch and completely safe and natural – perfect for keeping our little monkey busy and occupied. The yarns are stretchy and durable, and the colors and prints looks great on me. Everyone is a winner!
If your baby is also teething, you know where to click.
Little A & Co.
Looking for a perfect baby shower gift? Then this one is for you! Little A & Co. is an online boutique created by two modern parents. Little A is actually their two-year old daughter Audrey who inspired them to create handcrafted items that spark child’s creativity and imagination without too much stimulation from plastic toys with batteries. The brand highly supports handmade products from very talented & hardworking artisans from all over the world. All products are made from earth friendly materials & processes. That’s what we love about them – their lifestyle and advocacies. I highly recommend their Eco-Friendly Burp Pads and, of course, Wooden Toy Cameras.

Posh Peach Baby
Hailey, the owner of this shop, is a talented seamstress from Louisiana who strives to create modern and vintage one of a kind items for little ones. Her retro inspired handmade skirts and shorties are a must for Summer. Our favorites are Gray and Black Vintage Inspired Ruffle Waist Suspender Skirt and Mustard Yellow Frilly Romper with Heart Buttons. We received a lot of compliments on this lovely combo after posting pictures on Instagram, so we’re not the only ones who appreciate vintage style outfits!
We love Malabar Baby! All products are hand-crafted in limited runs by artisans utilizing methods such as block printing, hand screening and hand stitching. We’re crazy about their organic swaddles (you can never have too many swaddles), especially The Organic Swaddle Set – Majestic Animals and beautiful Snuggle Blankets.
They offer free worldwide shipping on your first order. Go on their website and learn more!
The Littlest Of Things
It was hard to choose only one shop for hairbows as we are fans of many (I should probably write a separate article, including all of them). Why The Littlest Of Things? Because sweet Joanne, the owner of the shop, has an amazing taste. Her simple bows are anything but simple. They are beautiful, elegant and tasteful. You can feel the quality and care that’s been taken to make these bows.
If you want your daughter look more girly, but not like a wrapped present, I suggest you to check out these hair bows. Currently the shop is on a short break as Joanne awaits the birth of her fourth child, but it will reopen once he’s safely here. Follow the shop on Instagram for any updates regarding shop openings.
