holiday gift guide: made with delight



Our mission at Quad City Moms Blog is pretty simple – connect with local moms and the community.

This holiday season, we want to take this a step further to really help you find the most amazing gifts – from amazing local businesses!

For 18 days, we’ll be sharing our favorite items from local businesses – restaurants, apparel, accessories, cleaning supplies, and more.  And the best part – one reader each day will win a $50 gift thanks to the generosity of these businesses.

Visit QCMB every day for a new gift idea and giveaway. And remember to give local this Christmas.

Today’s Gift Idea:

An adorable Knit Reindeer Hat by Made With Delight

Eli Hat

What’s to love:

The first thing I noticed when I opened my package from Made With Delight was the incredibly silky and soft yarn.  I remember knit hats from my youth that were so scratchy I chose to be cold instead.  No worries about the warm and cozy hats by Made With Delight.  These hats are so snugly that your kiddos will finally keep their hats on their head! #winning

The second thing I noticed was the thickness and quality of construction.  This isn’t a hat that will unravel from normal wear and tear of a child.  The design is knit into the rest of the hat securely, so I don’t have to worry about Rudolph losing his nose or eyes anytime soon.

The third thing I noticed was so obvious, THIS HAT IS SUPER CUTE!  I love the smile on my son in this picture because it is that “I know I look cute right now” face.  He feels like a cute little reindeer and I agree 🙂

There are so many other cute designs on the Made With Delight Etsy store site.  As an idea for the Frozen fans in your house, check out these hats!  There are also adorable newborn sized knit hats perfect for those Pinterest worthy photos!

Who this is the perfect gift for:

Made With Delight creations are great for a personal and one of a kind gift for a child or infant.  Please note that custom orders can be made to fit an adult.  These hats are wonderful alternatives to gift instead of just another toy.

    It would be a hard decision between the fox or the superman one. We just had a baby in our family and they could use it for their pictures for sure. Also my little one would love it!
