Holiday Gift for Teens
There is nothing I love more than handmade gifts, even if I’m not the one that makes them. In fact, I love buying handmade products because not only is the item a very special, one-of-a-kind gift but I get a chance to support a talented local crafter or artist at the same time! This year, I learned about Petite Tuques, a fabulous online boutique based in Quebec, Canada featuring gorgeous hand-knitted hats, mittens and scarves for everyone from infants to adults. The pieces were just the type of thing that I always fall in love with and I was delighted when I got to review a pair of Adult Long Cuff Knitted Mittens.
These stylish mittens are made for warmth and in Canada, that’s always a priority! Unlike store-bought mittens, my Petite Tuques mittens were long, almost up to my elbows when I pulled them up! But they also slid up and created a cute slouchy look on my wrists if I preferred that as well.
The red mittens I received used a fairly bright red contrasted with a deep burgundy. I couldn’t believe how warm they kept my hands when I headed outside and the merino wool that was used to make them was so incredibly soft! I’m not a fan of coarse wool or yarn so these mittens were perfect for me!
A pair of Petite Tuques mittens would make a great gift for a teenager or young adult that prides themselves on a funky, original fashion sense and would also be a good gift for anyone with a love of handmade products. And if toques or scarves are more your style, Petite Tuques has those as well so that you can outfit your entire family for the winter in hand-knitted, one of a kind style! There are even too-cute elf toques for babies! Check out the shop for yourself and give a gift that is as beautiful and original as the person receiving it!
