Little Alouette is run by a husband and wife duo out of a small wood workshop in Ohio. Joe is a master carpenter, and Amy's a writer. They've always built together — from their children's first toys to household pieces. They started Little Alouette in 2007 because of their children. "Wonder. Love. Imagine. It's all you need!" says Amy.
- Favorite Holiday Pick From Their Shop: "The Nativity Set or Personalized Rattles!"
- Favorite Holiday Traditions: "Glitter pinecones, ice lanterns, and gingerbread cookies by a fire. We read Holidays on Ice together as we drive home now. My mother used to read to me in the car on Christmas day."
- Shopping For the Child Who Has It All: "Classic toys that are beautiful to look at and to play with . . . books, art supplies, and time. Time is a wonderful gift."
