I am obsessed with Etsy. I visit the site probably every single day. I just browse, favoriting stores, and saving things to my wishlist. Not only can you find the cutest assortment of products, of great quality, but you are also supporting an artist, a crafter! Since it’s the holiday season, a time of gift giving and gift receiving, I thought sharing some of my favorite Etsy shops might be fun and perhaps you will find something cute that might be a great gift for a friend or family member, or maybe see something you like for yourself. I know I have found plenty of cute things I want to give as gifts and plenty that would look cute in my home!
The Blushing Fig – felt ball garland for all occasions
Felt ball garland is on the rise, and I couldn’t be happier about this trend. I think they are the cutest thing and can really work anywhere. Some people hang it over their fireplace mantle, some use it as tree decorations, some use it in their children’s bedrooms. I like using it in my office as home decor, but the color palettes that you can choose from is so much fun.
1dogwoof – cute variety of crochet patterns
I love to crochet, so this shop is a specific one, but if you are a fellow crocheter and like working off patterns, this shop has some of the cutest patterns. I love this little penguin and will be purchasing the pattern myself.
Friends of Socktopus – handmade plush dolls and toys
I do not have a child, but I still love these small handmade dolls and pillows. I like keeping cute pillows like this in my office. So even if you don’t have children, or get gifts for any children, you still may find these toys perfect for your space, but if you DO have children or know children, these little toys might be perfect for those youngsters.
WeeVintageBaby – authentic homemade (hip) baby clothes
As I said, I don’t have any kiddos running around, but I love looking at trendy baby clothes, and I just find everything on this shop utterly adorable. My favorite though has to be the bonnet. I mean look at those doe ears.
OWLpaperlamps- papercraft lamps from Portugal
I have never seen anything like these lamps before, which I think makes them even more special. When we get our own place, I am going to buy the penguin and elephant lamps and keep them in my office or my living room. I honestly think these would make such a great gift for someone too. I also like that they work for both children and adults.
Fabulously Feminist – awesome social & eco-justice prints, mugs, shirts, totes, and more!
This is probably my favorite Etsy shop. I want every single thing it sells. I really don’t think you can go wrong with this shop. If you know anyone who is all about social and eco-justice, then this shop may be a great place to look for gifts.
MasonRabbitHome- beautiful ceramics for your home and jewelry
Wow wow wow, is this shop beautiful! They make such beautiful ceramics, including bowls and ring holders. The ring holders are especially lovely and I think they would make a fabulous gift for any ladies. I would really love one too actually. I also am a huge fan of the kitchen spoons. I have this thing for spoons, but think they would look lovely in any kitchen.
Although I’ve listed these Etsy shops in the hopes you may find something unique and special to gift your loved ones, they really are amazing shops that provide exceptional products for any occasion…hey! you don’t even need an occasion, maybe you just really want to get yourself something nice for your apartment, or maybe you are like me and just like browsing and saving cute items to your wish list.
