We all have that person on our shopping list that is impossible to shop for. Those friends and family members that have everything, say they don’t need anything, or (the absolute worst) they are sure you will find something great. I am here to either to help find something for you or at least inspire you in the right direction!
I am a very strong believer in shopping small. Not only does it impact our economy more than shopping corporate, it also helps you to give unique one of a kind gifts that nobody else thought of.
All of the gift ideas I will be sharing with you can be found on Etsy. I am neither an affiliate nor am I being paid for this post.
Shall we get started?
Scarves are a great gift and very popular during the holidays. Just entering the word Scarf in the search field on Etsy brings up 650,000 results in all styles, colors, and price ranges. Need a scarf for a dog, man, child? They have it all. I have sorted through all of them for you and gathered up three of the best, in my opinion of course.
This gorgeous scarf would be perfect for the stylish bookworm on your list. It is available in RoobyLane‘s wonderful shop for $28.66
This next one is a gorgeous hand painted men’s silk scarf from SilkScarvesTakuyo for $49.00
I know this is not technically a scarf, but I could not resist the awesome level of adorable mybubbala offers with these Animal Hoodies starting at only $45.00
You wouldn’t believe the clothing options available on Etsy! You can find just about anything you can imagine (and more that you probably wouldn’t imagine) for all personality types!
from unique at HalfAnOctopus for $39.09
To nerdy from ClassicTees for $14.99
You can even find a lot of playful options like these at DancynDesigns for $19.99
Handmade shopping isn’t only about women and children. If your list is anything like mine then the men in your life are the most difficult to shop for. Etsy has thousands of unique and fun gifts for the menfolk in your life too.
Such as some help with their beards with LittleFlowerSoapCo‘s Beard Balm for $8.00
In true sibling style you can always make your gift to your brother benefit you. I have two brothers I should order this for from JandAWares for only $12.00
If you have never ventured into the kids side of Etsy you are missing out!! There is something fun and unique for every child on your list. You will never have to worry again whether or not someone already got them what you chose.
For only $12.99 AtelierRueTabaga has a fantastic gift for the child that loves to color! This giant coloring poster is 36″x 48″ and there are a bunch of designs to choose from!
You can also go educational with ReadCountGrow‘s sight word books for only $8.00
or keep it fun with some handmade American Girl Doll clothes from sewurbandesigns for only $8.00
Whoever you are shopping for I can guarantee you will find something unique and fantastic to give if you remember to shop small! One of my favorite things to do on Etsy is to just search for random things the person likes. For instance, my Justin loves the Hulk so a few years ago I just searched for The Hulk and I found him a duct tape wallet made with real Hulk comic books that he absolutely loved. You never know what you will find on Etsy!
I hope this guide helps you finish off your holiday shopping list with the unique handmade style!
Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones! I wish you love, joy, and good cheer that will carry you throughout the year!
