I love handmade gifts and supporting small businesses. They may end up costing more than what you’re used to buying, but brick and mortar stores mass produce, so the cost is always going to be lower. These are one woman Etsy shops where everything is made with skill and love.
There are so many great Etsy shops to be found on Etsy, but I just adore these ones.
And in no particular order…
Bar H Designs
Makes quality handmade stuffed animals & heirlooms.
I absolutely love all of her stuffed animals but especially these mini ponies that are 7″ tall.
I mean, how cute are these? I have to get my daughter one when she’s a little bit older because right now, she just wants to chew and eat stuffed toys. LOL I think I may have a puppy instead of a 2-year-old.
Line & Dot by Laura Jones Martinez
Laura does handmade Southwestern-inspired ceramics that are all created by hand in her Southern Arizona studio. She seriously has talent and I wish I could afford to buy all of her things!
I think I am going to have to get my mom one of her turquoise pieces since my mom is obsessed. I really like her turquoise cactus ring plate and trinket dish and think it would pair well with all of her jewelry!
Creates classic and cool jewelry in delicate styles.
I actually have one of her macrame bracelets and love it! It’s made out of hemp cord and Greek ceramic beads. Now I need to get her pink macrame bracelet that’s featured in the photo! My grandma’s birthday is tomorrow and I wish I would have browsed a little more because that yellow memory wire wrap bracelet would have been perfect for her. She loves the color yellow.
Payne and Comfort
Creates handmade products for the mind, body, and home. I have one of her aromatherapy pillows that I bought when I found out I was pregnant since I knew with my first that I would be experiencing some pains and wanted a heat/cold pack for those future occurrences. They can be frozen or heated up in the microwave so that’s awesome! She also makes great throw pillows which she donates a 10% of the proceeds to the National Eating Disorder Association in honor of her sister recovering from anorexia.
Creates beautiful knit pieces for any time of the year! This lady is a boss. She finishes blankets like she’s a machine, but she does it all by hand with her knitting needles.
Ali Grey Shop (Shop currently on break)
Makes hand woven bracelets and druzy earrings. I didn’t even know what druzy earrings were until I checked out her shop from Instagram. Shows how much I am into jewelry. I do love her druzy earrings though! I am just mad cause I can’t afford to buy every color. They’re all so beautiful!
Makes handmade beanies and apparel for everday adventures!
Boss and Michaels
They also have a funny yet cute story about how they came up with their name. You should take a peek!
Blending by Betty
Creates Vintage Inspired Handmade Jewelry and Woven Wall Decor. Her pieces are truly unique and one of a kind. I don’t think I have seen anything like it before. Her woven dream catchers are my absolute favorite though! Especially this colorful 4″ woven dream catcher and her 12″ pastel colored dream catcher.
Hermosa Cosa by Angel
Makes chokers, boho and lace jewelry. Her lace jewelry is so elegant and vintage! I love it all. I actually ordered one of her earring pieces for my mom for Mother’s Day because it was just her style (first picture). I also love her lace butterfly earrings.
Triple Sprout Designs
Specializes in printables which are great as wall art, invitations, mugs, shirts, etc! I dig her treat yo self-printable and her unicorn believe in magic printable. I mean, who doesn’t love unicorns and self-love? They are perfect!!
West Coast Creator
Creates hand embroidered wall art, accessories & decor.
