Hoping your Holiday planning is off to a great start! I was thinking about all my friends planning gifts for everyone on your list and decided I would help by sharing some of my favorite handmade items from the Handmade Dayton Etsy Team. All are available right now on-line at Etsy.com.
Please visit these shops to browse and buy handmade gifts for yourself or for others - you'll be glad you did! You may even get addicted to these fabulous items like I am!
For a fashion-forward lady in your life, you can't go wrong with a Handbag made of repurposed men's neckties, or Earrings made of guitar-picks named after famous Vintage Rock and Pop Songs. If you haven’t tried Hand-knit Fingerless Gloves, you really must!
My friend, Tracy, does custom-made dresses inspired by decades gone-by. Very classic and special. Check out this beauty. What fashion-forward lady wouldn’t just LOVE to have the promise of a custom-made dress under the tree this Holiday season?
For the art-lover, please browse these works of art! Perfect for a kitchen, this oil painting of a pear is one of my favorites. And the photograph of A Foggy Drive represents the calm and peace of a first fallen snow. Have you ever heard of sand-painting? I never had until I met the artist of this beautiful nativity scene. It’s such a beautiful technique!
Need a Hostess Gift? Try one of these… Handy Jan’s Tea Towels are a blast! I love this one of a retro cocktail party. Also, check out the beautiful handmade cards at Cathartic Slant’s shop. And the handmade paper roses pictured below are absolutely gorgeous for many uses and would make any hostess happy!
For the kid in your life, please allow me to suggest some one-of-a-kind handmade critters that also make pretty comfy pillows! Ella’s favorite is one of SnowMachine’s robots. And this adorable owl is made of recycled materials!
Happy Handmade Holiday!
