When Pragmatic Mom and I brainstorm on gift giving, it’s fun and interesting to see how many different ideas we can come up with together. I liked the low-tech or old school gifts, and found quite a few cool things this year..

Etsy is my go-to for cool on line handmade stuff – Here are a few links you’ll love.

Bowls and Serving – I made a Pinterest board of Bowls…maybe I have a problem?

Hostess and Gourmet


Handmade winter gear – don’t know how to knit? No problem.

Closer to home I found some great things at the SOWA Open Market like Zooguu  and Seven Acre Toys.





Don’t forget the Holiday Market at SOWA…and check out Pragmatic Mom’s High Tech Gift Ideas!
