The Etsy Holiday Gift Challenge – Buying a Gift for My Baby Nephew

Baby Gabe! First test subject of the Etsy Holiday Challenge.

So, here we go, day 1 of the Holiday Gift Challenge. Just to recap, I plan to purchase all of this year’s presents from Etsy or other small businesses/artists and my budget is $50 per person. So, yesterday I browsed Etsy and found a ton of adorable items! One of my favorites are these super cute shoes.  They are from pink2blue and you can find them here on Etsy. I love them!! In fact, I loved them so much, I thought how fun would it be to dress Gabe up like a stylish little adult. I was especially feeling the tweed materials and rich chocolate colors.

Love these shoes from pink2blue.

How cute would those little shoes look with this sweet outfit from Harpers Bazaar Handmade. You can see it on their Etsy store here.

It is getting pretty chilly out so don’t forget the hat. I love this newsboy cap from Classic Baby Whites.

Great newsboy baby cap from Classic Baby Whites.

How great is this little cardi with suspenders! I would love to see Gabe in it with his little newsboy cap. It is from EWMcCall’s Etsy store.

But Gabe is still a baby, so we can’t be all business. I came across this great little onesie by squarepaisleydesign, with a cute little raccoon on it. I have to tell you, I didn’t realize raccoons could be this cute. We had one last year that ran across the sidewalk and climbed up the tree in front of our house. When we got upstairs to our apartment and looked out the window, we could see its bright little eyes glowing at us from the tree, he might have even bared his little yellow teeth! He was the size of my French Bulldog, but not nearly as cute. He certainly did not have much in common with the sweet little raccoon on this onesie, who, unlike my city raccoon, does not appear to have rabies 🙂

Love this raccoon onesie from squarepaisleydesign.

As amazing as all these clothes are, I kind of feel Gabe might like something to play with. Check out this amazing little lamb from BarkingDogDesigns. Not only does it look super plush and cuddly, but it is pretty stylish to look at, too. Fair enough it is not suitable for children under 5 but he can wait for a little while right, especially for something this adorable!  We can buy it in advance and use it to decorate his nursery until he is ready for it in a few years 🙂

Just like the raccoons, the squirrels in Brooklyn are a little rough looking, too. However, this stuffed squirrel must be from Mayberry or something, because he is too sweet. Check him out over at SleepyKing.

And we can’t forget about mama. I love this bag. Fair enough, it is just a little over budget, but perfect for diapers, bottles, and all the other items that are essential to carry around for baby. I love it so much, I want it for myself. You can find it here, by ikabags.

I want this bag!

How cute would this art work from DesignByMaya look in little Gabe’s nursery! Love it. As a bonus, if you check out her shop and purchase one of her adorable prints, be sure to mention that you saw her shop on our Pressed In Brooklyn blog and she will give you a great discount 🙂

Love this art work from DesignByMaya.

So already I have a ton of stylish and adorable gifts to pick from. But I also love presents that appeal to my sense of humor. And this “Stormpooper” onesie by geeklingdesigns certainly fits in that category.

Stormpooper onesie, too funny!

And since Gabe’s daddy loves video games, I think this onesie would certainly appeal to him. Check it out, also by geeklingdesigns, and the little legwarmers are great, too.

So, I think that about covers it for baby Gabe. I have no idea how I am going to pick from this great list though. As always, suggestions are welcome!
