Once upon a career, I owned a small Etsy shop selling homemade dollies. I remember feeling so excited every time I got an order and incredibly touched that my creations were making a difference in someone’s life. Every time I receive a product from an Etsy shop owner, it usually comes with a handwritten note and sincere gratitude. Plus, the handcrafted items are always so special and stay in my home for years. Etsy gifts are a win-win for everyone!
This year, I knew I’d do a lot of my holiday gift shopping on Etsy. There’s nothing better than supporting a small business, especially on the annual Small Business Saturday. But Etsy is a huge space, and it takes time to sort through all the finds!
Luckily, we’ve curated our favorite Etsy gifts just for you. From toys and accessories for kids to gifts for friends, each piece gets our editor’s stamp of approval. Be sure to purchase soon, because so many of these items are personalized so they take a little extra time to create. Scroll down to shop our favorite items!
