A gift guide of handmade gifts from Etsy including home goods, jewelry & accessories, beauty & relaxation and gifts for babies & kids.
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 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

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 a very nicely curated Etsy holiday gift guide, 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 Gifts from Etsy. You’ll find 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.
