Shopping for kids isn’t always easy, walking the aisles at big box stores rarely gives me the inspiration I’m looking for. This year’s Outlaws have ideas for my whole crew along with nieces and nephews too. There are some great choices for every age here and I look forward to checking many names off my list of littles.
Bound to Help Books – This has been an all time favorite for my young bookworms. I’ve purchased journals for them two years in a row and I look forward to shopping for their next edition this year. These are not your average journal, they are an instant invitation for creativity, and my kids love them.
Meengo Chalk – Sidewalk Chalk + fun shapes + bright colors = hours of fun for kids of any age (and sometimes mom’s and dad’s too!). I don’t think I’ll be able to decide between the sparkling jewels and the donuts, maybe it will be a few of each.
Glass Sky Jewelry – My youngest daughter just got her ears pierced this year and it was a big deal. The simple shapes and designs of many of these earrings are perfect for the young fashionistas on your list.
Rose & Perry – Reminding my kids to wash their hands has never been more important than the past few years. Having fun and yummy smelling soaps throughout the house is a huge help to encourage them to keep this healthy habit. Grabbing a few candles for myself is another big plus!
About A Thing – Let’s be honest, kids are messy and cleaning up those messes isn’t always fun. With these reusable paper towels I can save a few trees and the kids can help out with some of those messes because they love all of the fun prints.
The Makist – Bright, bold colors are fun for any age, and kids are no exception. I love everything about this art that pulls me in at every show. From beautiful, large canvases to buttons and stickers, there is something for everyone here.
Questionable Press – If you have older, craft lovers on your list, this is a must see. The paper sculptures are beautiful and full of amazing detail. Any animal lover would love one of these. While you’re shopping make sure to take a look at the journals for the aspiring writers in your life.
Wildcat Gift & Party – The options are almost endless at this gift shop. Funny gifts, beautiful jewelry, and feminist fun. From babies to teens and everyone in between, you will check off many of your gift recipients in one stop.
Twinzz Shop – My littles are past the Onsie stage but everything here is adorable and they are always a great idea for babies and toddlers on my list.
Curated by Outlaws coordinator Mallory Theiss, who keeps it crafty with her sewing projects and busy with three children.
Join these exhibitors and more at our 2021 Holiday Marketplace at the Columbus Museum of Art on Sunday, December 5 from 12pm – 4pm.
