Gift Guide {ETSY Holiday}

December 12, 2011

Filed Under : DIY

Happy Monday!  This is probably one of my longest posts in history, but with good reason!  I wanted to share a few of my favorite items on Etsy that would be the perfect gift this holiday season.  And I did them all separate so you can click on the photo and it sends you straight to their Etsy.  Easy peasy!  I think it’s super important to support small businesses and what better way to do so than during the holidays?  Here are some of my favorites:

stitches bags

These bags are made by my friend Christy – aren’t they so cute?  They’re the perfect size to throw in a purse.  I would toss in a few lip balms and a hand lotion and give it to one of my best friends for Christmas.  See the full Etsy here.


It’s hard to pick a favorite piece from A Merry Mishap because they’re all so unique and fun, but I think I would give this ring as a gift because I’ve never seen anything like it.  So neat!  See the full Etsy here.


Ann-Marie is one of my best friends and she is so dang talented!  I love her newly added digital prints and would gift them to anyone needing a little color and inspiration in their life.  See the full Etsy here.


I would totally buy this camera strap for myself.  What?  I’m not allowed to by myself a Christmas present here and there??  It would be awesome for my new camera.  See the full Etsy here.


These striped linen dish towels are the perfect addition to any kitchen.  Wrap it around a wooden spoon and BAM you have a great gift.  See the full Etsy here.


I love these bright graphic prints and actually have one hanging on my gallery wall!  I would gift one of these to an art lover, of course.  See the full Etsy here.


The coral in this beaded bracelet is so gorgeous!  Ayofemi makes the most beautiful, delicate bracelets and I would give any one of them to my jewelry-loving cousin. See the full Etsy here.


Everyone needs a chunky cowl in their life but I think it would be such a good gift for my friend that moved to the east coast.  She will actually need it!  See the full Etsy here.

Etsy Love x4

In this edition of my Etsy favorites, I’m showcasing a little vintage, a little art, a little craft, and a little homemade jewelry.  Pretty much sums up Etsy in a nutshell, eh?  All of my favorite things!  On an unrelated note, I can’t help but get the giggles every time I look at Regretsy.  But on to my favorites of the week:

  1. Lackluster Co.: This vintage shop is full of unique houseware items, all of which are super industrial and very streamlined.  I love the variety of letters and numbers they have, especially the metal art deco ones.
  2. Matte Stephens: Though I’m a huge fan of all the Matte Stephens prints, the one of New York City is my absolute favorite.  There’s something very whimsical and youthful about this print that I find so enchanting.  In fact, I’m ordering one right now!
  3. Briones + Co.: This Etsy shop specializes in homemade notecards, menu planners, and even garland (my fave!).  So crafty and cute.
  4. Elephantine:  I’m quite fond of dainty, gold jewelry and Elephantine’s is particularly adorable.  I especially love all the shapes she incorporates in her designs.
