My Favorite Etsy Shops

I’ve always been a big fan of the hand-made, small business type of gifts and treats. I love handmade scarves, ornaments, paintings, stationary, prints and pottery. This goes all the way back to the days when I’d spend hours crafting with my grandmother or sister. When considering gifts to buy for birthdays or holidays, I always like choosing something with meaning. And for the most part, that’s either something handmade or personal. After lots of time and money spent shopping the etsy market, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite shops. If you’re like me, I’m sure you have wedding gifts, baby gifts and birthday presents to buy now that the holiday season is over. Or maybe you’ve just acquired some money from Christmas and you’re looking for a great way to spend it! 😉 Regardless, I think you’ll find these etsy shops and gift ideas as charming as I did.

Ps. All gifts listed are $50 and under! And a few of these awesome etsy shops are offering coupon codes and discounts this month! Click on the red link to visit the shop. :)

2. Mmim

What I love: Their pill boxes were perfect as a gift for a friend when she got married to use as a ring box. I bought her the one pictured below and it even ended up in her wedding photos. They even have matching bride and groom boxes and all sorts of pretty things to hold memories.

5. Itsy Bitsy Frame Shop

What I love: The personalized newlywed ornament & the “we’re expecting” ornament. I think these gifts are a super cute way to celebrate milestones in life. We gave one to a family member as a way to commemorate their first married Christmas and they really loved it.
