Handmade Girly Hair Gifts

Handmade Girly Hair Gifts

As you may have noticed, many babies start out with very little hair, and for the most part boys and girls are hard to tell apart.  Enter the hair accessories.  You can dress up your little girl like a baby doll to make sure you never hear, “Oh, he’s so cute!”  Infant hair accessories are a dime a dozen at big box stores, but it is so much more fun to make or buy handmade hair gifts.

Make Your Own
You can get all you need to make baby hair gifts at your local craft store.  Blank alligator clips and headbands, combined with a hot glue gun, lengths of ribbon or bits of felt can make the most adorable hair pieces you have ever seen.  The only limit is your imagination.

Buy Handmade
I am a big advocate of supporting small businesses.  Many of us are struggling to get by while corporations rake in record profits.  When you can, put your money to good use by shopping handmade sites like Etsy.com.  I just searched for “baby hair” (wanted to cover the clips, headbands, etc.) and there were more than 110,000 results. 

When you are buying or making gifts for baby girl hair accessories, try getting a selection of colors so your recipient has options when dressing their new girl up.  Pink is a given, but look at purples, yellows and even some neutral whites that go with everything.  Handmade gifts are a treat because they are not your typical, assembly line style and have that extra special handmade touch.
