It may seem like you’ve just unpacked your fall sweaters or sipped your first pumpkin-spiced latte, but the holiday season is coming up quick. Thanksgiving also falls a bit late this year, so there will be less time in December to shop.
Our best advice? Stock up on gifts early. And instead of turning to the big-box stores for your wish lists, why not try Etsy, the go-to online store for handmade, vintage, and independent products. We love perusing Etsy for unique home goods, but the sheer number of stores can be daunting.
To help you find the perfect gift this season, we’ve scoured the best shops for design-minded products that are fun, functional, and damn pretty to look at. Behold, the best holiday gifts on Etsy.
Whether you need a hostess gift, a stocking stuffer, or a present for an avid baker, these affordable kitchen items fit the bill. Know someone likes to cook but not sure what they have? Opt for a neutral linen tea towel or an engraved rolling pin—both are sure to impress.
