It’s that time of the year friends! If you’re anything like me, you like to give impactful gifts that support local businesses and families. I experience a special joy gifting my kids, family and friends something local and unique that they adore while knowing that somewhere nearby, that business or maker I purchased from is celebrating too! Give all the smiles this holiday season by supporting local businesses and makers, and I’m here to share my locally sourced top stocking stuffer picks for the 2018 holiday season!
These fun and bright colored teethers are a Kickstart sensation, designed by a Dad who was looking for a more innovative teething play toy. These brilliantly designed teethers also double as bath toys and sensory toys. The original idea was inspired by his mother, and then he named the products after his own daughter. These heartwarming cuties can be purchased locally at our very own, Inland Mama in Post Falls, Idaho. Shipping is also available. Find the Red the Rocket and Smiley the Star at the below links:
