I have heard "I don't know what to get people for [insert holiday here]" a dozen times in the past week and it boggles my mind. Though I tend to make the majority of my gifts I give to folks, I'm a total Etsy fiend and am obviously quite keen of supporting my friends who have creative companies. So here is a quick idea list for those who are searching for the perfect something but aren't sure where to start. My favorite crafty Canadian girls at Crywolf Clothing have created Buddies- a line of adorable stuffed creatures just in time for the holidays! Their online shop also has tons of uni-sex tshirts, pins, and even wall decals!
CameraSHY Phtography's antiqued photographic necklaces are unique, wearable, and affordable.
Twigs & Honey creates some of the most precious hair accessories adorned with lace, feathers, and flowers. Any gal in her right mind would love 'em.
And what about a lovely stationary set from Rifle Design? Artist and all-around crafty lady, Anna Bond, offers everything from recipe cards to happy birthday cards to poster prints of her original works.
Check out Vital Home's glassware section for some super fun bicycle-screened goods!
In the Orlando area? How about a piece of original art from Courtney Matzke - the show with her colorful and irresistible work is up now at Stardust Video & Coffee .
And since we're on the topic of locals...get yourself over to Etoile Boutique and Mother Falcon Clothing to check out the latest in local vintage, handmade, and screen printed goods. Giftcards for yummy vegetarian eats from Dandelion CommuniTEA are always a great gift idea. There are some unique finds over at Bold Hype. For the music-obsessed friend or family member, head over to Park Ave CDs. Better yet, head on over to Grandma Party at Stardust on Sunday, Dec. 20 to see pretty much all of these places and their sweet goodness at the same time.
Three cheers for handmade treasures that won't break the bank!
