Handmade Holiday Gift Guide


The holidays are fast approaching. Most creators (myself included) are probably swamped with last minute holiday prep and filling in orders from early bird shoppers.

But in addition to our businesses for the holidays, we also have a ton of things to prepare in our family and personal lives as well. Decorating, cooking, organizing gatherings, and of course…holiday shopping!

A couple weeks ago I did a gift guide series of handmade gift ideas on my Instagram profile. I got such a good reaction to it that I decided to post it here on the blog, complete with direct links to the items in the guide.

If you have the time, give these items and the artists behind them a look. One way to support the handmade community is by supporting each other. So if you see an item on the list that would make a great gift, don’t hesitate to put it on your shopping list.

By the way…some of these items are one of a kind or limited edition, so if you see something that you like, check it out ASAP. You never know when it might sell out!
