Sarah Jessica Parker is hoping to have at least one surprise for her three children on Christmas morning: A gift she described in an Instagram post as “utterly charming” and “irresistible.” The actor is talking about the work of Craftspring, a Brooklyn-based shop that sells handmade ornaments, mobiles, tree toppers, masks, and more.  

Parker stumbled upon the brand last year in Manhattan’s Union Square, where it had a temporary booth for the holiday season. “I’m not telling which ornaments I got for the Broderick children,” she wrote, adding that it was nearly impossible to choose. (The designs range from cheeky options, like a New York City MetroCard and Frida Kahlo, to holiday go-tos, such as as angels and peace doves.) The best part: All of the decorations are made by artisan women in Kyrgyzstan who practice traditional felting methods, which explains why the characters have a nostalgic quality to them—they’ve been around forever.

As far as ornaments go, these are on the pricier side, at $20 each. But as stocking stuffers (or last-minute gifts for a neighbor, host, or friend), the handcrafted pieces are definitely worth it. Parker’s holiday, for one, will be extra-special this year.
