Handmade and DIY Gifts for the Nature-Loving Child
StThe last leaf is falling from our beloved Grandmother Maple, and we’re starting to throw an extra log on the fire. I love the internal warmth we all stoke as a family and a community this time of year. One way of sharing that light is to find or make that perfect gift. Below is my curated collection of handmade and DIY gifts for those nature-loving kids (and a few for the adults) in your life.
Some of the gifts below contain affiliate links, but I have only included my favorite finds I’ve collected throughout the year. This year has been challenging for so many, but it also has been empowering. The Black Lives Matter movement to build a more inclusive, safe and equitable society is a cause that I stand behind, one that will always be a part of Wilder Child’s mission.
