Just like the next person, I often shop at big box stores such as Target and Amazon. However, those stores don’t really need our help. Small businesses do! Particularly with the holidays just around the corner, I’m often browsing Etsy and other small biz websites for gifts.
I don’t know about you, but I could spend hours browsing Etsy! There are so many unique items, and I’m guilty of falling down the rabbit hole of suggested items that I didn’t otherwise know I wanted. Here’s what I’m eyeing on Etsy for both myself and as gifts for others!
Under $40 Etsy Finds
+ COVID Greeting Card Bundle. I’m a big fan of snail mail, and especially in current times it’s a sweet gesture to let someone know you’re thinking of them. Katie’s lettering, colors and sayings are equal parts fun and vibrant – pretty sure anyone would love to open their mailbox to one of her cards!
+ Ew, COVID Mug. As a die-hard Schitt’s Creek fan, this mug belonged in my cabinet yesterday. Love it. Want it. Need it. Available in two sizes, but let’s be honest – we all need the larger size for all the coffee we’re presumably consuming these days.
+ Sideway Letter Necklace. This would be a a special gift to a new mom or mom-to-be with their child’s initial.
+ Custom Paw Print Ring. I’ve reached the stage of my pet parent life where I want a piece of Finn with me at all times. His paws are my absolute favorite, so this ring would be perfect.
+ Mask Chains. With masks not going anywhere anytime soon, a mask chain would make a great stocking stuffer. While I prefer the simplicity of a gold chain, these colored beaded chains also are so pretty!
+ Letter Resin Keychain. Wouldn’t this make the cutest gift topper?!
+ Floral Women’s Baseball Cap. I wear hats all the time, but they’re all sports or city-related. This is the cutest, most-feminine baseball hat I’ve ever come across!
+ Delicate Birthstone Beaded Bracelet. Another great gift option!
