Merry Blogmas, loves!
Out of all of the shopping apps on my phone, Etsy is my favorite. I love being able to look at small businesses and unique shops while being in the comfort of my own home. There are thousands of different products to look at and you can look at the shop’s customer reviews, find other similar products, ask the seller questions, and have a great shopping experience. From candles to hand bags, there is something for everybody on your Christmas shopping list. Here is a round up of some of my favorite products for your holiday shopping guide!
Quick disclaimer: I have not been paid to promote any of the products or brands sponsored. I simply love Etsy and the shops mentioned and I want to share them with you!
I love patches and pins! All you need is a plain jean jacket that you want to give some pizazz and you have a brand new jacket! I have so many patches saved to my wish list on Etsy that it is close to being categorized as an obsession.
This “Happy Camper” pin from aweedmark is one of my favorites! They have a lot of pins and patches in retro designs for your nature lover. They have “Save the Bees” stickers, cool bumper stickers, and wooden gifts that are affordable for your shopping. Aweedmark is owned by Amanda Weedmark and based in Canada, but they have international shipping. How cool is that! And if it couldn’t get any better, aweedmark has 119 reviews and a total rating of 5 golden stars!
IronpatchTH is a really neat patch shop that is based in Bangkok and they sell really awesome patches! You can find patches for sports teams, college teams, and other items, but I am in love with their sunflower patch.
The world needs a little more kindness and niceness so express that with a patch! VictoriaKristine sells patches, pins, and t-shirts on Etsy and there are so many different things to look at! The “Be Nice” patch is simple and very cute and only $6! VictoriaKristine is based in the US, so if you are a fellow American, you can feel great because you are buying from a US shop!
Crystals have come on trend in the past year, both for healing and decor, and I have to admit that I am with that trend! I love all things crystals and I adore the purple amethyst quartz pin from notmagicshop. This shop also has other pins that look like crystals, so if someone you know would like something like this, go check out their shop!
For someone you loves minimalistic accessories, take a peek at this lovely hair clip from AnnieLesperance! It’s simple yet elegant style will bring a smile to your gift recipient! AnnieLesperance also sells golden bee earrings and other fashion accessories at good prices that won’t break the bank!
A really awesome shop that I just recently came across is tinylumber. One of my favorite products from them is the Tiny Lumber wood stud earrings. They are hypoallergenic and there are great reviews for them! The earrings are $15 but for these earrings, I would pay that price! They have a titanium stud and the rounds are made from bamboo wood and painted with acrylic paint. There are a lot of different styles of the bamboo earrings, so look around the shop on Etsy!

For $40, getting a small crossbody bag that monogrammed is amazing! MaBrownMercantile sells gorgeous bags for decent prices and they will make any fashonista happy. The bags are made from faux leather and you can have you pick of colored thread.

For your movie buff, take a look at this shirt! I am obsessed with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and when I saw this shirt, I might have shrieked a little bit. You can buy your “Save Ferris” shirt in multiple different shades from FreshRagsCincy, a shop based in (you guessed it!) Cincinnati! They also have a Burt Macklin FBI shirt from Parks and Recreation!
I love candles! If you hand me a candle that is sandalwood or cologne scented, I will run off in search of a candle or lighter. If you take me to Bath and Body Works, I am going to go sniff the Black Tie candle and wish there was a hunky man next to me that I could hug and never let go. Basically, I love woodsy and musky candles.
BrandIron in Vancouver sells non GMO wax candles that are amazing and Insta-perfect. Oak & Moss is a candle that has “notes of earthy green moss balanced with subtle notes of soft woods.” How great does that sound? For $20, you get a 9 oz. candle with a 40 hour burn time. Just imagine how great your house (or rather, the gift recipient’s house) will smell!

If you have someone in your life who is always carrying around a memory stick or who simply wants to keep photos with them but doesn’t have storage, check out this really cool USB memory drive that is made out of wood! The memory drive is encased in a regular sized case and you can choose which type of wood you want the case to be made out of. EWARTWOODS, the shop that makes these, is based in Latvia, which I think is really cool! I love the way these look and they will make a great gift for the techno-wiz in your family!
Chunky knit blankets have seemed to pop up as of late and I see them everywhere on Instagram. Everyone has a really neat knit blanket that is its own fashion. PuffyWoolDecor has a lot of different colors to choose from and the blankets look insanely soft! A note on this shop, though: they only ship to select countries, so if you order from them, make sure they ship to your country! If they don’t, there are a lot of other amazing shops on Etsy that sell the blankets!
I love home decor and simple signs can make any space look chic. Wire wall art, especially in gold or rose gold, is very elegant but easy to make if you are a crafty person. If you are like me, it is easier to buy one than make one because you weren’t terribly gifted in the arts department! MCWonderland from Italy makes a lot of wire crafts and signs that will spruce up your space effortlessly. This cute “Hello” sign is affordable and your gift recipient will love it.
Last in home decor is something that I want to buy immediately and will cherish forever. RedwoodStoneworks out of California makes Rocket and Groot planters! Rocket and Groot are two of my favorite characters from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and I want these planters in my home pronto! You can buy the planters individually or as a duo! RedwoodStoneworks has a lot of cool planters in Star Wars, Disney, and Harry Potter designs, as well as a lot more! Everything is so affordable and your giftee will love their present. If you want to add a little something more to the gift, go to your local home improvement or garden store and pick up a baby succulent!
I will see you next week with a special collaboration with Phy!
