Unwrapped: For The Etsy Lover


And the small business supporters

'Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, it’s 31 days of gift giving; for a month, we’ll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list—from your hard-to-please parents to your ’90s-loving BFF and even your spoiled pet. Filled with creative picks that got our pulses racing, our Unwrapped holiday gift guides will make Christmas shopping a breeze this holiday season.

It’s easy to drive to a shopping mall, visit a couple of stores, and bang out all of your holiday gifts in one trip. But what if we told you there was another purchasing path you could go down? TBH, nobody really needs another generic lotion gift set and you really shouldn’t be shopping at fast fashion shops, anyway. This year, save your conscience some guilt and shop for your presents via Etsy.

You’ll not only be picking from personalized, unique items that you won’t find at chain stores, you’ll also be saving money and supporting the “little guys” in the creative world. The e-tailers shop can be overwhelming if you’re not a regular buyer, so to help you navigate, we’ve rounded up some items that would serve as great presents. Click through to see what we found.

WoolAndWanderCo, Charcoal Infinity Scarf, $33, available at Etsy.

Made to order, these hand-knit scarves are so much better—and ethical—than the ones your friend will pick up from the mall, proceed to lose, and have to replace come next year. Choose from the always stylish infinity style or go for a chunky cowl cozy. It's quality and fashion all wrapped up in one.
