A few of our favorite gifts from Etsy

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...

With the overabundance of Gift Guides in the blogosphere during the holidays, I want to do something different. My goal is to give you a unique idea for gifts. Anyone can go buy a handbag or a pair of shoes, but what makes gifts special is the thought and love put into each one. Instead of shopping a big name retailers, why not support the lovely hand-crafting artisans of Etsy? You can surely bet no one else will get your friends something similar. Available worldwide, here's a collection of some of my favorites. Please feel free to share some of you favorite Etsy shops in the comments below as well! I love discovering new Etsy shops.

1. R-ki-tekt
I've shared this awesome shop in the past and it's safe to say I'm still obsessed. I use thegold card case (on sale!!!!!) and get a compliment every time I use it. Get one of thesetassel keychains in each color for your besties so you always think of each other <3

2. She may surprise you
How cozy does she look in that sweater?! This convertible fleece sweater is hand made and made to order. Since it can be worn so many ways, it makes the perfect gift. Picking out clothes for someone else can be a risk, but that problem is solved with this one!

3. Pottery lodge
For the plant/home decor domestic diva, this adorable hanging planter is so perfect! Great for succulents & cacti, this little planter is the cutest. In fact, I want it. *hint hint* any of my friends/family who might be reading

4. Earth cadets
I couldn't pass up these cool pillows when I saw them on Etsy yesterday. The fun patterns and bright pops of color are exactly what one needs in a throw pillow. All pillows are hand-printed & the price is great, especially considering that they aren't mass produced over seas!

5. Crafts & love
I mean, we all know I'm obsessed with Crafts & Love, so there's no way I could leave them out! This piece is super unique, but very cool, modern & fresh. Its versatility makes it a great gift for your girl, no matter what her style is!

6. Printable wisdom
This is for the coffee lover in your life. Create a custom mug with her favorite quote (or a silly inside joke!) and fill it with her favorite candy and/or treats. The sweet thought and personal gift won't go unnoticed!
