Gifts for the Baby in Your Life

There is nothing sweeter than a new petit bebe, and gifting for one may be one of the most fun experiences any adult will do. What makes the experience even more rewarding is when the gift has special meaning, and gives back in some way. Our Baby & Child collection is comprised of Fair Trade essentials for the next generation of global citizens. Everything on this list is handmade by our artisan partners, and created with heirloom quality in mind. Enjoy!


What’s Not to Llove?

Kids of all ages love the soft textures and spunky personalities of our new llama stuffed animals, Libby & Logan (top photo). Moms and Dads love that they are handmade by women artisans high in the Andes Mountains of Peru, and each one is knit and stitched from premium Peruvian cotton.


Blankets Even Mom Will Love

The Meridian Baby and Child Collection

Babies can never have too many blankets: For the stroller, tummy time, nursing covers, and nap time. Our Waffle Throws (in Citron, above or Blush/Grey) are the perfect weight to feel cozy no matter the season, and we love that each one is hand-loomed by a Fair Trade family operation in South East Turkey.


Hoppy Holidays

Meridian | Bailey and Brandon the Bunnies are handmade in Peru by our artisan partners.

The newest edition to our Baby & Child collection is another sweet gift selection. Meet Brandon and Bailey! They are curious best friends who love to play outdoors. Each one is handmade by our women’s cooperative artisan partners in the Andes Mountains of Peru.


Gift Bundles for Your Bundle of Joy

Meridian | Gift Bundles for Baby & Mom

For the extra special maman and bebe, look no further than our brand-new Gift Bundles. New moms and their bundles of joy can share our premium, luxe alpaca throw, and the littles will love these petite lovies that are hand crocheted by our partners in Armenia. They are available in two exclusive styles: Llama Love, featuring a sweet stuffed llama and an Alpaca Blanket in Natural, and Counting Sheep, which includes a cute stuffed sheep paired with a grey Alpaca Blanket.


Limited Edition Gifts for the Collector

Meridian | Limited Edition Fair Trade Stuffed Animals from Vietnam

If you’re looking for something super unique, our limited-edition capsule collection from Vietnam is the right choice. The bunnies, elephants, and hippos have been handmade by a Fair Trade nonprofit who are dedicated to the preservation of traditional craft in South East Asia. These cute stuffed animals are the ultimate accessory for the discerning nursery collector.


Nesting Parents Will Love These

Meridian | Nesting Baskets

For those in the mode of nesting, this set of three Sisal Nesting Baskets are sure to keep everyone organized. Nestle them inside each other for convenient storage, or fill each basket with nursery essentials, such as a handmade stuffed animal lovie, a snuggly blanket, diapers or creams.


For Citizens of the World

Meridian | Nursery Decor

For the ultimate next gen global citizen, no nursery is complete without a one-of-a-kind throw pillow, like this one made from a Guatemalan huipil textile. Our Huipil Nursery Pillow is a unique and special gift sure to please parents and add a little je ne sais quoi to any bespoke nursery.
