Keep baby’s toes warm with Gaia Mama Goods slippers (#Etsy #giveaway)

2013 Holiday Gift Guide button

At this time of year, I think most of us can be forgiven with being preoccupied with the holidays and all that goes with them, but the face remains that life is still happening as usual while we trim the tree, bake goodies and buy presents. A very dear friend of mine is due to have her third baby any day now and another good friend had her first baby on Halloween, which led me to wonder: what do you get a newborn for Christmas?

Odds are good that there has been a recent baby shower (for the first) or many hand-me-downs (second and so on) and there are only so many “Baby’s First Christmas” outfits/ornaments/picture frames that a parent wants to keep. I started thinking about what I would have liked had my daughters been winter babies and one splurge item I came up with was a pair of cozy baby slippers that would stay on little feet and keep them warm. I did my usual Etsy search and came across Gaia Mama Goods. Run by Emily, a Canadian mom based in Nelson, British Columbia, it features handmade wool crocheted slippers with sheepskin and moosehide soles!

Emily was gracious enough to send me the pair of her newborn wool crocheted slippers with sheepskin and moosehide soles that are pictured here. Made to fit a foot length of 9 cm, these will be perfect for a brand new baby in Ottawa’s cold winter. The wool is so soft and the footbed is cushioned so they’ll be cozy for baby to wear. I really like how high the ankle is and the little ties will help to keep them on little feet.

You can almost feel how soft they are just by looking at them! I have already given them to my friend because I’m too impatient to wait for Baby Boy’s arrival and she was so happy to receive them.  These are the type of thing that becomes a family heirloom and it’s so nice to find a practical but still adorable gift for a brand new baby, especially when the basics have been more than taken care of. Gaia Mama Goods offers slippers in sizes ranging from newborn to adult and they’re all custom-made to your sizing specifications, so you know that the fit will be just right!
