Meaningful Christmas gifts

For this coming Christmas, I’ve only selected handmade toys from local brands (though coming from many different countries  : France of course, but also Australia, Netherlands and other countries…). All these brands work from raw or recycled materials (wood, fabrics, iron,…) . They’re very creative and imaginative…


  1. Wooden toys by Encore!  
Encore Jouets

Little rabbits, wooden cabins, furniture… Everything is as simple as poetic, perfect to develop kids’ imagination! Handmade with love in France by Nina Astruc and her sister Fanny. Encore!


2.   Little French Rag dolls

  • tout est magnifique!!! cela donne envie. Je me suis offerte mon cadeau de noël il y a une semaine, un véritable coup de cœur , un coussin fait main par Laetitia Dalbies. oui ce n’est pas donné et je ne peux pas forcément m’acheter cela souvent mais je pense qu’il faut encourager les créateurs locaux qui sont le courage de se lancer et de créer. Consommer moins mais mieux ( si c’est possible, dans ce contexte social je fais attention à ce que je dis 😉 bravo en tout cas pour cette sélection!
