Whether for the holiday season, birthdays, anniversaries, or just treating yourself, it can be difficult to find a unique and personable gift at the mall. Etsy.com is a perfect alternative. Etsy is a website focused on handmade or vintage items which cover a wide range: including art, photography, clothing, jewelry, food, bath and beauty products, quilts, knick-knacks, and toys. I often spend hours perusing the thousands of unique and handmade items and sellers.
Being able to give and receive handmade items while directly supporting a local (or not so local!) artist is great for everyone involved.
Here are some gifts from Etsy that will have your loved ones looking like this when they open their gift!
For that special someone in your life who loves iced coffee so much, they could wear it often. This cute tee is the perfect gift to rep their favorite drink while sipping on one.

A fun and unique DIY marimo kit! This is a marimo, literally “ball seaweed”, also known as Japanese Moss Ball, is a rare species of green algae, growing into large green balls with a velvety appearance and are found naturally in a number of lakes in the world.
The growth rate of a Marimo is only about 5 mm per year. It is said that they can live for up to 200 years!
ThePaperPonyCo has so much adorable stationary ranging from stickers to cards to wrapping paper.
