Customer Testimonials


I opened my first package from Alder & Alouette and was absolutely blown away by the attention to detail. Thank you so much. You have firmly cemented your shop as my new go-to! Everything was so nicely packaged and I was able to reuse or recycle absolutely all of the packaging, which is really important to me. You carry such great products and your customer service is the icing and cherry on top. Even online interactions with Alder & Alouette feel personal and I feel valued as a part of the A&A family. I can’t wait to shop with you again!

I can't express how much this book pulls at my heart strings. As a father of 2 amazing and beautiful children, 4 and 2, it's always great to find something to connect us to one another. And Hair, for my daughter, is our bond. I've been doing her hair for little over a year. From quick pony tails, to cute puff balls to hour long finger twist. And just like the little girl in this story, my daughter's hair can be a lot to handle for a dad with little experience in hair. But we learned together what she likes and what she doesn't. What she can handle and what she wants nothing to do with. And honestly it brings us closer each time. This book hits all these and more. A great story book to read with lots of love and laughs. A great representation too. It's truly, for me, hair love in real life. -Hair Dad

Sunprint Kit


This was a great stocking stuffer. My girls and I had a blast using it and some even look frame worthy. Can't wait until the flowers bloom in spring to get more. And thank you for sending my items packaged so mindfully. It was obvious you packed my box with care and intention and I loved all the extra small touches. This is why I shop small business! Thank you!

3-2-1 Blastoff Puzzle


I ordered an adorable puzzle. All wrapped and ready to go. It was exactly what I expected. I was also given a thank you gift with my first order. I enjoy all the variety this store has to offer. A little something for everyone. I plan to shop again!

The Complete Cookbook for Young Chefs


I ordered this cookbook as a birthday gift for my eight year old nephew who is getting into cooking. It has a variety of recipes and is also stuffed full of pictures which I know he will love! Perfect find!

Backpack Explorer: Birds 


We just installed several bird feeders around our property and noticed our daughter’s interest in the birds so we bought this for her (she’s seven). She lays on her tummy with her binoculars trying to match the birds in her book to the birds in our yard. With this book, she’s having a good time, learning a lot about birds and playing outside. We are super pleased.

Sophie the Fox


I just got home from work and my package from Alder and Alouette arrived. From start to finish I couldn’t be happier. The online site was a breeze to use, and I appreciate the “twice loved” box, compostable packaging, and my lovingly wrapped order. Mostly, I love Sophie the fox. She is beautifully made and Mia will love her. Thank you for the extra care and attention! I will post a glowing review and shop from you again.

Autumn and Winter Activities Come Rain or Shine


I bought this book because my adult kids moved home with me with their young children during COVID and their moms needed to work during the day online. I'd take the grandkids outside and we'd choose an activity from this book. We had so much fun. I posted a separate review on the product page.

But I loved receiving this book as much as using it. Alder and Alouette had it wrapped in the prettiest tissue and ribbon. It was like a little gift to me. And I am wowed that everything in the packaging and shipment was eco-friendly. Thank you for that.
