2017 Holiday Gift Guide – unique handmade gifts for everyone on your list!


I can’t believe it, but it’s actually time to start putting my holiday gift list together! If you are like me, you LOVE to find and give unique, creative, and thoughtful gifts that come from the heart. I’ve already started searching for gift ideas for everyone on my list and I want to share some of my favorite finds with you here.

Whether you are searching for a gift for Mom, Dad, son, daughter, teacher, friend, or coworker, I’ve got some great ideas for you! Look below for a list of truly unique and creative gift items that are so special and personal!

I love this hand stamped fleur de lis bar necklace from Tricia Bertrand of Jewels by Trish. The simple design makes it a great gift idea for a friend that she’s sure to love and wear often!



This limited edition print of a beautiful wetland scene by artist Annie Wildey would make an incredible and unique gift idea for a Mom, Dad, husband, wife, or best friend. For details or to see more of Annie’s work, please visit her website www.anniewildey.com.



This beautiful keepsake journal by artist Neesha Merani of Paper Wand would make a lovely and unique gift idea for any Mom you know!


These personalized hand stamped silver necklaces from Julie Miller of Jules Jewelry make a beautiful keepsake gift idea for the favorite moms in your life, even if that mom is YOU!


Looking for something to keep your favorite teen’s hands warm while she is answering your texts (wink-wink)? Check out these fun handmade fingerless gloves by Chicago artist Lee Samsani Stein of LSSLusciousKnits.


If you are looking for something adorable and handmade for any little ones on your Christmas list, check out the embroidered offerings of Cathy Pascual of Catshy Crafts. So cute!!


I certainly don’t want to forget any of the special guys on your list! I love these personalized leather wallets I found on Etsy! Send them your handwritten note and they will inscribe it on your favorite guy’s new wallet!


Hand poured soy wax candles make a great hostess gift, teacher gifts, and more! I love the idea and the packaging of these Personal Hero candles on Etsy. Choose your intention and your scent to make really unique and personalized gifts!



Looking for a rustic, rugged and practical gift idea for him OR her? I love all of the products from Peg and Awl. They offer handmade waxed totes, jewelry, and other items that are really unique and beautifully crafted.


Bah humb…UGH! How fun is this cute “ugh” mug from Cat and Raven on Etsy?! It’s available in your choice of colors and priced perfectly for a teacher, neighbor, or an office gift exchange gift. 🙂



Finally, a new piece of Christmas decor is always a great gift idea for the holidays. My farmhouse Christmas prints feature classic Christmas sayings in simple white and gray colors, which go with any decor. Add a handmade reclaimed barn wood frame to make it extra special. They all come gift wrapped in cellophane and ready to give! You can check them out here.


I hope this gives you some ideas to get your Christmas shopping started! Please remember to support all of the makers who work hard to bring you unique and creative items year round and shop small and shop local this holiday season!! Have the very happiest of holidays!!! xoxo
