It’s my favorite post of the year, y’all: my holiday gift guide dedicated to all things Etsy. I’ll never pass up an opportunity to browse Etsy’s site and make wish lists of all the different things I want.

Etsy is by far the best place to shop for for unique, custom and handmade gifts for my closest friends and family members. It’s my go-to place to shop for the special people in my life.

Unique Etsy Holiday Gift Ideas For Everyone On Your List

This year, I’ve rounded up some ideas that I think would make perfect gifts for fun-loving friends and family (*cough, cough* Jon, if you’re reading, for me too). After hours of scouring Etsy’s site, I’m pretty excited about what I found: quilted jackets, original art prints, nameplate jewelry and more!

Here are some gifts I’d be thrilled to receive this holiday (or any time of the year!).

And, hey — when you’re done here, head over to our holiday gift idea hub for more seriously cool gift ideas for all your loved ones (or whomever).
