Half Hitch Goods was born out of the idea that gifting should be a thoughtful and inspiring process. That's why Carrie Caillouette, founder of Half Hitch Goods, offers a highly curated selection of heirloom quality products that both the giver and the recipient can feel good about. We've rounded up our favorite eco-friendly gifts that we'd happily give or receive this holiday season and beyond.
In addition to operating their e-commerce site, Carrie and her husband Britton travel in her old Volkswagen Vanagon "Doka" to visit artist's studios and learn about their process. The "Doka" now doubles as a mobile store on wheels which is affectionately referred to as "Rolling Shoppe."

On their journey they discovered these adorable guitar shaped teether’s made of North American hardwood and sanded down.
Organic Bandanna Bib $18

Emollient Balm $28
