Looking for a happy medium between attractive modern decor and something your child will actually WANT to play with this Christmas? Me too! (I've already purchased a few of the items on this list). This year, consider shopping small and patronizing handmade shops and small businesses. Not only will you discover more unique and appealing gifts but your purchases will have the secondary benefit of directly impacting shop-owners and artisans.
