Etsy Shop Gift Guide

It's no secret here that I'm a huge lover of other small businesses and will support them where I can. Over the past few months, I've really tried to stick to them more for little gifts and kicking off my first ever blogmas attempt, I wanted to share with you some of my all time favourite buys from my favourite sellers which I feel would make beautiful and unique gifts for your loved ones too.

I now have two floral crowns from Holly's shop Aurora Fawn but believe me when I say, I literally want every single piece that is listed in her shop. Ranging from Halloween to Christmas pieces, personalised custom crowns to one-off's that are made just for fun, there is bound to be a design for everyone and better yet, Holly can attach antlers, unicorn horns, ears and even Maleficent horns to your crowns for a really magical piece. Below is the crown Holly custom made for me and all I did was ask for a unicorn design with a white iridescent horn and then gave her my favourite colours to play with.

I'm a huge lover of candles but these days I'm much more fond of wax melts, especially from this gem of an Etsy shop. The only downside to this shop is I expect all wax melts to be the same in terms of quality and strength but these are without a doubt the best brand I have ever found. I picked a few up this time last year and I'm still using them now, simply because you can cut them up and the scents are so powerful and long lasting that using a whole pod isn't necessary. The range in the shop is fantastic and I've picked up some dupe scents like Snow Fairies which, you guessed it smells just like the famous Lush shower gel, Alien which smells exactly like my Thierry Mugler perfume and I'm also a huge lover of soapy smells like fresh laundry.

This Etsy shop is such an inspiration to me and there is a tonne of products to choose from meaning you're bound to fill a couple of stockings from this shop alone. I particularly love this unicorn design and I grabbed it on a coaster for my office earlier this year. The colours are so crisp and vibrant plus the quality of the coaster is awesome, no wearing away around the edges and easy to clean should you (inevitably) splash your drink. I also found Katie's shop to be very reasonably priced and will be returning for some Christmas gifts myself this year!

Fran has been one of my favourite illustrators for a couple of years now and I adore her style. I treated myself last year to one of her prints and art prints are the perfect gift for fellow creatives, especially if you can find a cute frame for them too. Fran has also recently released a new planner which I'm dying to get my hands on...maybe one day!

5. Katnipp Illustration
Everything about Cathy's shop Katnipp Illustration makes me squeal with joy, I don't think I've ever stumbled across a brand who is more up my street and I absolutely adore everything she has to offer. I grabbed one of her moon badges earlier this Autumn to add into a giveaway and she kindly included one of her mermaid stickers with beautiful packaging and plenty of character.

6. Pastel Elixir
A small business gift guide wouldn't be complete without a cheeky promo of my own little shop and I'm super proud of how far I have come with it this year and even more excited for next years adventures. I couldn't be more in love with my job and I'm so very grateful and ecstatic to now be doing this full time. As a little thankyou, I'm giving away little Christmas treat bags with all orders over £10 until the big day, which typically contain stickers, badges, discount codes, sweets and other cute surprises! The support received this year means the world!


Thanks for reading,
