There’s just something about a handmade gift that makes it a little more special than something you picked up at a big box store. Knowing that someone designed and created it with their own hands. They put their own time and effort into making it just right for someone to love and enjoy in their homes.
There are so many creative and talented people that sell their products on Etsy. I could spend hours browsing Etsy, checking out all of the beautiful handmade goods. My favorites list just keeps growing!
So I wanted to share a few of those favorites through this Handmade Gift Guide. These handmade items would make great Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, or even shower gifts!
I am loving this Typographic Pillow. Not only would it make a great Christmas gift, but also a housewarming or wedding shower gift! Finch and Cotter have SO many adorable personalized pillows, I would have a hard time just choosing one!
I have been eyeing these Quilted Felt Pouches for months after I first saw them on the Curly Willow Collections Instagram page. LOVE the color combinations. And there are also the cutest pillow covers available in her shop!
Microbreweries are popping up left and right and I know so many people who are brewing their own beers at home. This Handmade Stained Pine Beer Flight Paddle would make a great gift for your favorite beer lover! Brew Flights has a variety of beer paddles available – different stains, chalkboard paint, even custom designs.
Do you have a camper in your life? Someone who loves traveling in their RV? Then this Wood Campsite Sign is the perfect personalized gift for them! Jen Barrett Designs offers many personalized signs for everyone on your shopping list.
Coffee is my love language and this But First Coffee Doodle Print is totally my morning mantra. What a fun print to hang in the kitchen or even on a gallery wall! There are lots of fun prints in This Girl’s Doodles shop plus an Adult Coloring Book that would be so fun to gift with a set of markers!
I love having cute dishes and pottery sitting out on tables and bookshelves. This Ring Dish is so, so pretty! Hope Johnson Ceramics has gorgeous pieces – I love the bright, happy colors and touches of nature she adds.
Gallery walls are so much fun, especially when you incorporate photos and hand painted signs from the Prim and Proper shop. The “this is our happily ever after” sign would be perfect hanging above a family photo or in a bedroom.
If you live in a colder climate, then a large, warm scarf is usually a staple in your closet. And this Plaid Blanket Scarf doesn’t disappoint! Everything about it is so cozy – soft flannel, gorgeous print, and oversized so it can be worn in a variety of ways. I have a few scarves from Forgotten Cotton that I just love. Plus they have beautiful lace boot cuffs and the cutest bow bracelet cuffs that make the perfect stocking stuffers!
If you have a DMB fan in your life, then they totally need this Home Decor Art Print with lyrics from a Dave Matthews Band song. I seriously love everything in the Free Borboleta shop – she has the cutest coffee mugs and notepads in really fun typography.
For a blogger or photographer, this Padded Camera Strap Cover would make such a great gift! Handmade by Janie Lane Studio, there are also bags, totes, and card cases available in a variety of really pretty fabric prints.
For the wine lover and hostess, this Recycled Wine Bottle Serving Tray is such a unique gift! You can find different styles and colors available, plus beer glasses and other home decor items made from wine bottles in the Recast Glass shop.
It was so hard to choose my favorite from the Plane & Saw shop. But if I had to choose just one, this Rustic Wooden Heart would be at the top of my list. Using reclaimed wood to create these beautiful pieces, Plane & Saw offers other shapes and letters.
If you are looking for a whole gift the family will be able to use and love, then this Ruler Growth Chart would be so perfect! It can be personalized with last names, first names, and more, plus it’s available in a variety of colors. She’s Crafty has a variety of hand painted signs available in the shop, plus some really cute Christmas ornaments!
And there you have it! Just a few of my favorite Etsy shops. I love supporting small businesses and finding unique gifts for everyone on my list!
