If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have notched that I tend to dress my children in more traditional clothing. So you can probably guess that I am beyond thrilled that bonnets are making a comeback.
My girls have been wearing baby bonnets since they were infants, many of which were lovingly sewn by my grandmother. I love bonnets because they truly protect a child’s face from the elements and, unlike other hats, fidgety children have a hard time taking them off! Most important of all, bonnets perfectly frame the absolute sweetness in every child’s face.
With the crisp weather arriving here in Dallas, I recently bought my youngest daughter a corduroy bonnet made by The Beaufort Bonnet Company. I thought I would share with my readers because it makes for such a precious baby or toddler gift.
The Beaufort Bonnet Company is a wonderfull, Kentucky-based company that has brought back an old Southern bonnet patten in many beautiful fabrics and patterns. (They sell many other children’s gifts and accessories so check them out!).
I love their collection of fall/winter bonnets, particularly the ones that would be so cute with Christmas dresses:
If you are looking for a sweet baby or toddler gift, or a cute baby Christmas gift, definitely consider giving a bonnet. It will no doubt become a family heirloom. And nothing is more thoughtful than giving something that can be passed down through the generations!
And bonus: bonnets make for adorable pictures, too!
Does your child have or have you bought a Beaufort Bonnet for a baby gift? Would love to know in the comments below!
