Finding baby gifts isn’t hard, but finding thoughtfully made, safe and eco-friendly gifts for babies and little kids is another thing altogether.

This year, instead of searching around mindlessly through the online mall that is the internet, I recommend shopping at an online store that specializes in ethical, sustainable, well-designed products. A store like Made Trade is just the ticket!
