10 of the best handmade gifts on Etsy

Every single year as Christmas approaches, I tell myself I’m going to make thoughtful handmade gifts for everyone on my list. Normally I make a couple but then life, the baby or any number of Christmas visits make the clock run on super speed.

This year I’ve decided that instead of making my own homemade gifts, I would support local artists, crafters and DIYers for the people on my list. It’s always fun to find custom gift ideas online or at local fairs. I’ve always really loved looking through Etsy to make my list.

  1. Custom Cutting Board

    If you have a food lover on your list you can pick up this engraved cutting board with a message of your choice.

  2. Birthstone Necklace

    This is the perfect gift for the ladies on your list, customize the necklace with children’s birthstone for mom, grandmother or wife.

  3. Hanging Planter

    I love these macrame hanging planters, I’ve added a few to my house with my favourite succulents (they’re easy to maintain and hard to kill if you forget to water).

  4. Leather Card Holder

    You can personalize a leather card holder for the hard-to-buy-for man on your list. It’s handmade and the perfect alternative to carrying around a bulky wallet.

  5. Gourmet Fish & Seafood Rub

    This kit comes with 6 unique spices so you can prepare a new flavour on the grill whenever you’re feeling adventurous.

  6. Custom Leather Journal

    This is the perfect notebook for starting off 2019 – you can change the number of pages, paper style and the embossing on the outside cover.

  7. Wrap Scarf

    This handmade scarf is double lined – the outer layer has a cool patter (check out the shop for more options) and the inner layer has a fleece lining to keep you warm and cozy.

  8. Peppermint Christmas Soap

    This natural soap is made with peppermint essential oils and organic oil & butter to keep your skin hydrated all winter long.

  9. Knitted Mug Cozy

    I’m a big fan of trying to find reusable solutions when it comes to coffee and tea drinking. This mug cozy is cute and protects your hands when you’ve got a hot cup in your hand.

  10. Personalize Kids Name Puzzle

    This is a perfect gift for the kids on your list – it’s interactive but can be used as a decoration in the nursery or toddlers room.

I think my favourite gifts are handmade, eventually I want to try making a list of gifts to make myself! I’ve been collecting an endless stream of DIY projects and my goal for next year is to actually give some of these away to friends and family.
