Handmade Gifts to Buy

Wednesday I shared links to tutorials on how to make your own awesome holiday gifts. Today’s post is for those less crafty, or with less time and a bit more money. Now I get to do one of my favorite things – share awesome things people make that you can buy! Handmade gifts are especially great for people who have niche interests, and for people who are notoriously hard to buy for. You can rest assured that no one else will give the same gift you do! All of these selections were taken from my personal favorites. Now on to the shinies.

Under $10:

These recycled DVD cover notebooks from OutwardBound would make anyone happy. Choose from a plethora of movie and TV titles.


Everybody can use lip balm . The flavors offered by The Beautiful Dame are unique and awesome.

How cute is this little guy from Cloudy Day Designs?

$25 and under:

These ID tags from Urban Puppy are great for the animal lover on your list – or give one to your own pet!

People who cloth diaper their little ones will love the cool designs from The Eli Monster.

Fancy towels are one of those things that everyone loves, but they rarely buy for themselves – making them the perfect gift! Check out these cute designs from Cyanide Stitches.

Under $50:

The faux taxidermy and felt animal creations by Girl Savage are just all kinds of awesome.

Know a purse hoarder? They’ll love these fashionable, funky designs from Stellar Cheri.

A Speer is an amazing pottery artist, and I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t love her creations.

Over $50:

Everybody with a laptop needs a protective sleeve, and Brokesy makes ones that will have other technophiles jealous.

Isn’t this gorgeous? Can’t you just feel the weight and warmth of the metal on your skin? Crescent Maille‘s shop is full of things like this.

Bad Bird‘s artwork makes me smile, and I think it would be great in any room.


I hope you find the perfect gift for everyone on your list – whether you make it yourself or buy from a handmade artisan. If you like my picks, feel free to check out the rest of my favorites. I’m also a member of teams along with some amazing artists. Browse the CraftAnon Team, Etsy for Animals Team, and the Georgia Etsy Team to find other wonderful and unique creations.
