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).

Another fun way to shop Etsy is by searching for gorgeous handmade items from artists and designers located around the world.

6. Leather Belt Bags
Another Etsy hidden gem? The purse and handbags sections! They carry a unique variety of leather goods from all around the world, and it’s a beautiful selection of handbags to get lost in.
Right now, I’m on the hunt for the perfect oversized leather belt bag that will fit allll my crap — so, I guess this category is just really just one big excuse for me to shop for myself. Ha.

7. Sustainable & Eco-Friendly Kitchenware
Eco-friendly kitchenware is bigggggg on Etsy. I go there for all my kitchen needs, like bowls made from coconuts, reusable towels and cleaning supplies. There are so many cool products that I’m just learning about, and I can’t wait to try!

8. Custom & Personalized Jewelry
I feel like getting a custom nameplate necklace was kind of, like, a rite of passage for a preteen girl growing up in the ’90s. And since I never got to fulfill that wish, it makes SO MUCH sense that I’m obsessed with finding a cool nameplate necklace of my own right now.

9. Original Art Prints
“Trio Blue” Print by Michelle Armas
I originally fell in love with Etsy many years ago (like, when the website was first starting up) because it introduced me to so many cool artists I wouldn’t know otherwise. I will always love browsing through the original artwork on Etsy — it’s a very fun and worthy use of your spare time! I mean, have you seen this blue print??

10. Personalized Journals, Photo Albums & Scrapbooks
As an artist and an avid journal writer myself, I can’t help but LOVE this gift idea of a personalized blank book. It’s perfect for not only artists but also newlyweds and new parents who want a place to keep their memories.
