Toys are nice and all, but a gift of handcrafted shoes comes with hopes for baby’s continued growth and happiness. Every piece of umelo ihc’s first-shoes kit is made in Japan for quality you can trust, and the leather, available in unique color, is treated with natural low-allergen tannins to make it safe for baby to touch and wear. Simply trim the leather to fit, sew the pieces together, and in less than four hours, you’ll have a beautiful pair of custom-fit shoes for that special little someone.
Shijimi, or freshwater clams, are a popular addition to miso soup in Japan. The beloved bivalves, featured in ukiyo-e prints and serving as a staple of the common folk since samurai times, have been commemorated in these silver earrings. The outside is oxidized to bring out their shellfish nature, and when worn, the shells seem to nip the earlobes in a whimsical way. Or consider our stylish coffee-bean earrings. With so much personality in just two little earrings, either design would make the perfect gift for that special someone. Light up Christmas with an unexpected spark!
