Etsy is such a wonderful place to shop for unique gifts that are often handmade or vintage. It is so great to find things that you can be pretty sure won't be duplicated by anyone else when you gift them.
I can spend hours on that site just checking out all of the awesome things! Unfortunately, it can take hours to find all of the awesome things and during the holidays we don't have hours to spend to find that perfect gift. So, we are here to help you out on today's Friday Faves! These are the best gift ideas we have found this year on Etsy and I think you will find a little something for everyone on your list in this collection. Do you have a favorite shop on Etsy or have you found a perfect gift idea on there that we missed? Be sure to list your faves in the comments!
Gifts for Kids
Indoor Teepees! What child wouldn't want one of these? I think I want one actually. These are on sale right now, so I hope you don't miss that sale. But, if you do, the regular prices are really good anyway! Here is another link to some adorable teepees that look so comfy, I'll bet the kids will want to nap in them!
Personalized Baseball Bats! Because quite a few of my kids played Little League, these bats caught my eye! I know that even my grown boys would love these mini bats!
Mini Rolling Pin! If you have a kid who loves to bake with you, these little rolling pins would make ideal stocking stuffers! The price is just right. They come in a variety of sizes at EarlyAmericanShop.
While you are at it, you may want to add this awesome kid's baking set from PeelHouseCrafts! This set comes with a lined apron with a pocket, fully insulated oven gloves, tea towel with hanging tag and a wooden spoon, all fit into a matching tote!
Baby's First Christmas Ornament! I am in the market for a couple of these this year! Christmas Keepsake has these adorable ones that are personalized for your baby.
And, look at this one with a photo of the baby on Happyism! How do I choose? My Sister-in-law will love the elephant for her new grandbaby!
Gifts for Adults
Chess Sets! I love to play chess, even though I am not very good at it. My son-in-law on the other hand is very good and very patient with me when we play. I wish I had looked on Etsy when I was shopping for a chess set for him! KGcraftstore has some awesome sets to choose from.
Blanket Chest! I am a sucker for wooden chests. DNMwoods has some great ones at very reasonable prices! Look at this one for only $88!
Warmed Slippers! Do you know someone with perpetually cold toes? You now have the answer to their problem! SnugToes sells slippers with removable heat pads that you can rewarm in the microwave that will keep toes toasty. They look really comfy as well!
Embossed Rolling Pin! I love these things and this one is priced right, plus free shipping!
French Pastry Rolling Pin! I have 2 rolling pins that I have had since I was first married. I think that when I was first married, I didn't know the proper way to care for them and now the handles are fallen off and they are splitting. So, I am in the market for a new one. I love the sleek look of this French pastry pin. Does anyone have any experience with these? Please let me know. This one offers free shipping!
Cool Lamp! Does anyone ever really have enough lighting? A really cool lamp would make a great gift for anyone's office or bedroom or living room. I love the look of steampunk accessories! Go figure! This lamp by UrbanIndustrialCraft is something that I would love! They have many choices.
Handmade Wooden Bread Knife! If someone in your life is a bread baker, this is a wonderful gift! I know I would love it! This shop,AtelierDuGrandPIc also carries beautiful cutting boards and wooden spoons. This knife would definitely be a useful, one of a kind gift!
DIY Gifts If you really love to give gift that you have crafted yourself, here are some patterns and kits to help you out.
Crochet Doll Patterns! These are adorable dolls! JossaHandmadeStore sells the patterns for you to crochet them yourself. I have to admit that I was a little disappointed because I would have just purchased them already completed because they are so cute! There are many styles to choose from. These are my favorites:
Harry Potter Themed Embroidery Kit! A friend of mine just made one of these for another friend and it came out so cute! There are so many Harry Potter fans out there who would love one (or two) of these. You will find these kits on LarkRisingEmbroidery.
Did you get some good ideas or inspiration? I hope so. I know I did! What were your favorite gift ideas?
