Before I introduce this big old gifty round-up (which was supposed to go up yesterday, sorry) let me begin by making it perfectly clear that I was in NO WAY COMPENSATED for this post by ANYONE at all. I didn't get money or gift cards. I didn't receive products to review. I didn't even get a pat on the back. I would accept chocolate cake for services rendered, but as of now that hasn't happened either.
ALSO, I really can't speak to the business practices of these shops. I feel they're on the up and up. Most of them have all thumbs ups. But I also haven't PERSONALLY ordered from most of them.
Ok, all of that said, I wanted to give you a little break. Yes, I know you have great intentions of handmaking every single gift you give for every occasion this year - especially Christmas. But I also know you have a long list of gift recipients. And maybe - maybe - you might not get to everything on your list. And maybe that's ok. If you still want to give something handmade, etsy is the place to go! You can find just about anything you could possibly want on etsy, and much of it is unique, one of a kind, quality, charming, hand made stuff. So if you just can't make it yourself, etsy it!
