I am so excited to share with you one of my favorite small shops run by two incredible women: The Vintage Honey Shop. Meet Jen and Mel - the two mamas behind this amazing brand. Much like myself, these ladies are busy raising their babies all the while running a successful business. Between the two of them, they have four boys and a girl - ages 7 to 14.
Jen and Mel began their small shop journey in 2011. Their signature product, Teething and Nursing Necklaces, are one of my favorite go-to baby shower gifts. If you're a mom to a nursing, bottle-feeding or teething baby, these necklaces are a beautiful and useful addition to your daily routine and wardrobe.
Don't have a baby anymore? No problem! These teething necklaces don't look like a typical baby accessory. They can dress up any outfit and are definitely a trendy statement piece. Wanna know something funny? My 6 year old daughter hijacked mine and wears it to school! I seriously love that they are so versatile and can be worn beyond the baby years.
These handmade necklaces are crafted from premium cotton fabrics, organic wooden beads and satin ribbon that creates an adjustable length. They provide baby an alternative to scratching and grabbing at while feeding. We've all had chubby baby fingers caught in our hair, right? These necklaces will stop that while giving baby something else to play with!
In addition to these cotton necklaces, The Vintage Honey Shop also makes silicone teething jewelry and teething ring necklaces. The ring necklaces are made with the same quality fabric and wooden beads as the traditional necklaces, but include a 60 mm organic wooden teething ring. Perfect for when your sweet babe is cutting those dreaded molars.
The silicone jewelry (that includes some funky bangles!!) is made of 100% food-grade silicone and can be easily cleaned with soap and water. Like their other products, the silicone teething jewelry doesn't have any harmful ingredients and is perfect for baby to gum, chew and play with.
Next time you're shopping online for a baby gift, head over to The Vintage Honey Shop and grab something both mama and baby will appreciate.
