Welcome to eden & elim

We’re a mother-daughter team from the midwest, and we enjoy making thoughtful handmade gifts. Many of our items are expressions of our very own life experiences and have personal stories woven into them. 

What is eden & elim?

eden & elim exists as an invitation to rest and reflect and to feel revived and restored before moving forward on your journey.  

Rather than being a straight road, life is made up of winding paths, crossroads, mountains, and valleys. Every once in a while, you'll come across an oasis that'll give you the choice to pause on your journey or keep going. While moving forward is important, it’s just as important to stop at those oases to rest and reflect. 

Many of our items have been inspired by true events and are creative expressions of lessons learned during our own seasons of rest and reflection. They have special, personal stories that we’re excited to share with you. 

Every item is handmade with love and filled with the hope that anyone who receives one will know that they’re beloved. Each gift comes with the sincere invitation to leave guilt at the door while you choose to pause for a moment. We hope that every time your eyes fall on our gifts, you’ll be reminded of the importance of rest and how it guides us to reflection, revival, and restoration. 

We’re certain that in the grand scheme of life, your rest is just as productive as the steps you take to move forward on your journey. And, in every moment you accept the gift of rest, we hope that your reflections will restore you to live as the gift that you were always meant to be.


Got the bunny and turtle as gifts for friends and they absolutely love it! The accessories are so cute and fit perfectly to the animals.

Highly recommend this as gifts for your loved ones or even yourself!
I absolutely LOVE my little turtle! He reminds me to slow down and enjoy life. The chai latte scent is so perfect and adds a cozy winter vibe to my home. The story card is so beautifully written and will encourage your soul! 10/10 recommend!
Reading the stories of the pieces in the shop I was struggling on which to buy first because I adore the the love and thoughtfulness that goes into each one! I was so thrilled when my Aster rabbit arrived so I could send it to a sweet friend! She looked like she was in a little bed when I opened the box and the Chai Latte fragrance was gorgeous. Beautifully crafted, thank you Eden & Elim for your original and thoughtful work! I'll be back!x
