I am in that happy stage of life when dear friends are welcoming new babes to their families faster then I can blink. To simplify my gift giving I have come up with a signature baby gift + packaging.
My gift of choice are these darling wood teethers from Little Sapling Toys. They have the widest selection of shapes, the teethers are modern + organic and everything they create is handmade in the USA. Even better, Little Sapling Toys has a flat rate $5.95 shipping fee which allows me to load up my cart and not pay a crazy amount to get them.
For my most recent order, I bought the little camera teether (for a photographer friend), a Washington state teether (for a friend who grew up right here in Washington), and this cute little bird teether (for a friend who just had her second daughter). I love that although the gifts I'm giving are similar, they feel personal because of the shape options Little Sapling offers.
To wrap the teethers, I gathered some simple supplies.
I've had these sweet alphabet flashcards in my stash for over a year. I love everything about them and thought it would be fun to attach a card to each package with the letter of the new babe's name.
Little Sapling ships their teethers in muslin bags, which I love. To package them up, I simply place them in a kraft bag,
sew a vintage button to the flashcard,
and staple the flashcard to the bag.
If I remember correctly, the flashcards were purchased at Michael's. If you can't find these exact ones, any kind of flashcard would work just as well.
The vintage buttons were purchased at a local antique shop.
The kraft bags are available in my etsy shop.

Just so you know, Little Sapling Toys did not pay me to write this post. They did not discount my order in any way. I genuinely love their products and wanted to share a great company with all of you. Happy March!
