It seems that every blog I go to at the moment has Christmas guides, one’s for beauty lovers, ones for chocolate lovers, kids…. and the list goes on. I love reading them but I’ve never really been one for writing guides and everything I mention is probably going to have been mentioned before. But one thing I did want to do is an Etsy Christmas Guide showing some of the awesome more unique presents you can buy from some of my favourite sellers on Etsy.
I was quite late to the Etsy game and only started buying things earlier this year but have discovered some amazing treats for myself and gifts for others.
I have bought quite a few little bits from Raspberry Finch to put in Secret Santa’s that I have done as she does a beautiful range of cards/ postcards which look beautiful framed alongside some inspirational and cute little compact mirrors, book marks, bags etc. The items are really reasonably priced and if you buy multiple items you get combined delivery which is really good. When I made my order I received my goods in a few days and she even sent me an extra postcard with my order which was a nice little treat just for me.
All About You NL
Earlier this year one of my best friends lost someone really close to her and I wanted a subtle piece of jewelry which she could wear to remind her of him. I trawled so many Etsy sellers and settled on All About You NL which had a beautiful necklace that you could fully customize. It comes with three charms one which is a little angels wing, one which is a birthstone so you can pick any colour and one which is a heart where you can have any letter engraved. The necklace was beautiful and all cast in sterling silver so a decent quality. All About You NL also does a whole host of other beautiful bits of jewelry and personalised items so make sure you have a browse.
I’ve had a bit of an artwork kick recently and i’m framing everything I can find to hang around my room and Etsy has hundreds of sellers who sell artwork and prints but I really loved the stuff from Prints Variete. They generally have awesome deals on like buy 2 get 1 free so I took advantage of this and bought a few presents and then had a gift for me *yay*. The prints are really good quality and there are so many choices you should be able to find something perfect for who you’re buying for.
Oh Gosh Cindy
Oh Gosh Cindy has been someone I’ve bought from quite a few times in the past because her prints, drawings and other accessories are just so cute and when i saw this Wayne’s’ World print I knew I had to have them for myself, but I did also buy a few prints for gifts as well. Her style is a little quirky but with David Mitchell, Beyonce, Zooey Deschanel and other people among her prints you’ll certainly find something for that special girl!
Rock on Ruby
The final space on my Etsy Christmas Guide goes to Rock on Ruby who have an awesome collection of make-up/ travel bags among other things. There are a lot of places that make these types of slogan bags but I like with Rock on Ruby how you can choose between black or cream bags and their pricing is highly competitive compared to other brands. I chose to customize my own and you can now actually buy my design here. The quality of these bags are great and I carry mine around every single day in my bag with all those little bits which usually swim at the bottom of my bag like pens, tissues, lipsticks, my hairbrush, gum etc….
These are just a few of my favourite sellers from Etsy and hopefully you’ve got some inspiration for some gifts both for your friends/ family and yourself.
