Our beautiful badger will make the perfect gift for bridesmaids (or even the bride!) at autumnal weddings or peep out of your shoulder bag on a trip to Anthropolgie (she’ll fit right in). But be careful, little ones will really, really want one, so you might end up making Bettie, Belle, Bonnie, Brooke and Bea…
