Both of my kids are "hat kids" and have been since birth. This is partly because they just look so darn cute in them and partly because I realized quickly that hats are one of the cutest and most affordable accessories you can buy, as well as one of the easiest to store (and keep forever, if you're the sentimental type like I am).
Not only do cute hats completely change an outfit and make any child look put together, they are also attention magnets since no one can pass by an adorable kid wearing an adorable hat and not completely melt. Trust me.
I recently heard about the Etsy store, Wiggly Bridge, and got to check out their line of exquisite handmade hats for all seasons. Since you all know by now how much I adore handmade, it’s really no surprise that I fell hard for Wiggly Bridge’s offerings. When trying to decide on a hat to keep my little one toasty this holiday season, I spent quite a bit of time checking out all the designs and imagining how cute they would look on either my daughter or son.
Unfortunately, no amount of time made my decision any easier and it was impossible for me to decide on my own. Luckily for me, Jessica, the owner of Wiggly Bridge, helped me make a decision and even picked out the perfect hat sizes for both of my kids so we could take some holiday pictures.
She sent out two striped holiday hats from her pre-made selection for my kids and they arrived incredibly fast even with some crazy winter weather that came early to the Pacific Northwest. Over the past few weeks my kids have been wearing them just about every day and we have gotten more compliments than I can count about how cute they are in them.
If you can’t tell from the pictures, the Wiggly Bridge Holiday Hat is a red and white striped cap that has a long, pointed top and is finished with a whimsical pom pom for extra adorable-ness. They look like a cross between a striped santa hat and a knit snow hat for an adorable elf, and either way, they are absolutely adorable.
Not only are they perfect for all this cold weather that hit even earlier this year than normal, they are also the perfect way to get everyone around us in a holiday mood. My kids have been wearing the hats for two weeks now and are clearly on a mission to thoroughly melt everyone's hearts around us. It’s really hard to imagine not being in a jolly mood when you’re hanging out with this little guy, isn’t it?
We've still got a few weeks left until Christmas, so I know that the holiday hats from Wiggly Bridge are going to have quite a few more photo opportunities ahead of us. This may be a bit of a long shot, but I'm actually hoping that the hats will stretch enough so that they can each wear them again next year as well. If not, they will certainly end up in their special keepsake boxes and something that will always remind me of the first year as a family of four.
Even if holiday hats are not your thing, the Wiggly Bridge shop has a hat that is guaranteed to melt your heart. Since most hats are custom orders, you can always contact Jessica directly and she can work with you to create the perfect hat for your kiddo at no extra charge. Please do keep in mind that since most hats are made to order, you should allow for at least a week for her to create your masterpiece and then allow for shipping.
