I am a huge fan of Etsy and love supporting women and moms who are running small businesses. So, if you’re looking for creative gift ideas, here are some of my favorite shops and products:
She has the cutest macramé wall hangings. How cute would this snowflake wreath be for a little girl’s room? I ordered some of these keychains as gifts and love them. They’d make great stocking stuffers or secret Santa gifts, too. 15% off with code CYBER15
These macramé keychains are about $6 each with the discount code.
Probably my favorite Etsy shop to date. I adore her style. I took advantage of her sale on Friday and got this C.S. Lewis quote + lion painting that has been on my wish list for a long time. I also love these gorgeous letter prints that are less than $3 if you print yourself! P.S. The entire shop is on sale today.
A mix of vintage clothes + homegoods as well as art with a nature, fauna, and desert vibe. Nathan bought me an amazing vintage skirt from here a couple years ago (he’s the best). Nichol has such great taste and I love her nature-filled art. These cool temporary tattoos would make great stocking stuffers.
This shop is my new obsession. Isn’t it amazing? Stuff sells out almost immediately, but if you have a vintage lover on your list, maybe you could snag her a cozy sweater or something. Follow Jolie on Instagram to find out when she’s adding more to the shop (usually every two weeks). I bought Henry some cute vintage sweaters for Christmas. 15% off with code THANKS
I have a large print of this painting in our dining room and love it! Minted is a great place to find high-quality, affordable prints by artists.
If you’re pregnant, I highly recommend putting one of these diaper bags on your baby list. This diaper bag doesn’t even look like a diaper bag, which is one reason I love it so much. I also like that it converts into a backpack so I can have both of my hands free.
I heart this diaper bag. I can even carry my laptop in it.
I have a weave from this shop and like how it adds texture to my gallery wall. It looks like she has added macramés now, too.
The rust + cream colored weave is from this shop!
A family friend had Anna make us one of these pixie hats for Henry when he was born and it was my favorite baby hat. He looked like a little gnome. I also like Anna’s pom-pom charms. 20% off everything today
See what I mean? Little gnome? #love
Shhh…I’m giving this hat and pom-pom charm to a pregnant friend.
I know Henry is still a few years away, but I’m thinking of getting these Tiny Theologian Flash Cards for him. What a great idea! Plus they look beautiful. 30% off with code SHOPTINY
I just love her lettering style so much. I ordered some yoga cards and an assortment of other unique cards. My favorite art prints are this quote by Saint Maximilian Kolbe and this one by Saint Thomas More. 40% off with code GRATEFUL
If you want more ideas, here are some other great gift guides focusing on local products, companies that support women, or brands following ethical standards:
And, while not a gift guide, I want to add in Erin Loechner’s post on holiday gift giving because I so resonate with her reflections—especially the part about making your own gifts and thrifting for old electronics with buttons so the baby can push buttons all day. Brilliant.
Finding gifts made by the original makers is fun for me and hopefully helpful for you, but I don’t want to add to your clamor of holiday consumerism. I believe that meaningful conversation over warm drinks is the best gift we can give.
Happy celebrating + gift giving, friends!
