Best Handmade Gifts for the Crafty Shopper
By jen lemen on December 15, 2008
Sometimes the sale racks at Target just won't do when you have someone on your list who would appreciate heart and soul in your gift selection. If you want to give something truly personal this Christmas, consider Etsy where handmade so often means exquisite detail and the finest quality. With priority shipping, it's still not too late to send the best of the best. Here are four ways you can't go wrong--whether you are the crafty buyer or whether you have someone who loves to create on your list.
Buy Original Prints
Original prints by Etsy artist Mati McDonough are the perfect selection for a new mother or some other old soul who appreciates all things whimsical. The elephant prints are sure to be a favorite. Kelly Rae Roberts is offering lovely prints designed to delight at prices so affordable complete with professional matte ready to be wrapped.
Feed the need for Fiber
Your favorite knitter will go wild for the handspun yarns available in Space Romantic's shop. Another nice touch for your favorite fiber artist is a cozy handmade shawl. Who can appreciate the lovely art involved in every stitch but a knitter herself?
Hold out for Pottery
Artisans and crafters of all kinds are especially wired to appreciate the skill and love required to throw pots and create glazes. This tapestry bowl is functional and beautiful. Stardust bowls can hold beads, supplies or your cereal depending on what's the most important task before you.
Handmade gifts are sure to be a fantastic choice for the craftiest person on your list. Who better to value all the hard work and love that goes into the handmade present?
