Handmade Gifts from Etsy That Are Eco Friendly Too

A gift guide of handmade gifts from Etsy including home goods, jewelry & accessories, beauty & relaxation and gifts for babies & kids.
Eco Friendly Handmade Gifts from Etsy Useful. Unique. Luxurious. Practical. Thoughtful. Beautiful. Natural. Eco-friendly. Handmade. There are so many different criteria for buying gifts. If I had to choose one way of describing the gifts I like to give it would be this: Delightfully Useful.
By delightful I mean that the person is totally surprised and truly delighted by what they receive! By useful I mean that this gift is really being used – not just sitting on a shelf gathering dust. That’s why one of my favorite sources of gifts over the years has been Etsy. On Etsy you can find delightfully useful gifts that are handmade with love and totally unique. On top of that, you are supporting creative individuals instead of large corporations – and that’s definitely something to feel good about!

Eco Friendly Handmade Gifts from Etsy

I may receive commissions from purchases made through links in this article. Full Disclosure Etsy is a wonderland for gift buying – although it can be a bit overwhelming at times. Search for something and you will get hundreds if not thousands of results. They do have very nicely curated Etsy holiday gift guides, although even that is a rabbit hole of great ideas! To help narrow the field a bit – I created my own guide of Eco Friendly Handmade Products from Etsy. You’ll find handmade gifts made from recycled and non-toxic materials, items sewn out of organic cotton, things that are reusable to replace disposables, as well as some lovely nature inspired creations. (I’ve got tons more Eco Friendly Gift Ideas here!) Keep scrolling down to find my top handmade Etsy gift picks for Home, Fashion, Beauty & Kids!
