The Holidays are arriving soon!

Since it is only mid-November, there is still a lot of time to find unique and interesting gifts for everyone on your list. When shopping last minute, there never seems to be the selection of thoughtful pieces for those special people in your life. We usually have the standard family, in-laws and grandparents to buy for, but then there are people like your babysitter, dog-sitter, dance instructors, and kids teachers. We have often purchased a little something for clients, neighbours and then other places that we frequent like the dry cleaner and the butcher.

Here are some of my favourite finds for gift ideas from EtsyThere is a little something for everyone and then Something-for-Everyone-Else on your list!

The Lettery Co. customized holiday cards.

First, Holiday Cards are always important. Even if you only end up mailing 10 (which inevitably I do) you always need some on hand to give people that drop by, or unexpected gifts that you may need to give.  I love these customizable cards from The Lettery Co. These unique and modern cards feature an infographic of your 2015 highlights! They will work with you to customize the design with your best moments and holiday sentiments. The listing includes customization and a quantity of cards plus you will also receive a digital version of the card sized perfectly to share on either Instagram or Facebook.

Holiday Wine Bags are a necessary to have, and these handmade ones from PeetSwea are a must have to include in your holiday purchases. These are sized to hold one 750ml wine bottle. Also sized perfectly to hold two DVDs, or a coffee mug, or many other small gifts!

Bluefish Bohemian bracelets are a beautiful gift for a best friend!

Bluefish Bohemian is a local designer that I used to work with at my previous company. She puts a lot of time in care in these Boho style bracelets, that perfectly layer with the other jewelry in your collection. The one pictured is a Silver Wrap Bracelet: Hematite gemstone beads hand sewn onto an ombre brown leather trim and finished with a unique, hand forged pewter, designer button closure. I just love this sweet little button, featuring a koi fish swimming in bubbly waters, it is hallmarked on the back by the designer. This is a great everyday, wear with anything and everything, wrap bracelet. The ombre effect of the leather lends unique character and charm to the bracelet.

Palm Springs, California Illustrated Travel Map – print of an original watercolour.

I met Kate, the owner and designer of Striped Cat Studio, in October at the Designer Vaca Retreat. Not only is she a lovely girl, but a very talented artist. My mother is a Palm Springs lover, and this Palm Springs Illustrated Travel Map is a beautiful gift to give her!  She has many other beautiful prints with the same exquisite detail, which is perfect for someone who enjoys the details of fine art.

Titanium Ring by About Jewelry

About Jewelry has a large array of rings, but this Titanium Ring with Deer horn, antler and hard wood could be customized for the person in your life that hunts, and wants to memorialize the antlers (no judgement please! Just a gift idea!). The craftsmanship and customization is a beautiful idea for that someone very special that is close to you yet hard to buy for!

A cute pillow for the nurse in your life.

A cute pillow for the nurse in your life.

Do you have a nurse that you need to buy a gift? The I Define Me Project shop on Etsy has a number of inspiration word art-quote-gifts and I was especially taken with this Nurse Pillow – it is reasonably priced ($35.00 US!) and super cute.

Aren’t these Herb Markers super cute?

I am in LOVE with these Herb Markers from The Fysh Store – perfect for the neighbour that you want to get a little something for, that is unique and not too costly. At $17.50, I am going to purchase one of these for my neighbour and one for myself!

I have always loved painted signs, and I have found it hard to purchase one that I absolutely love. I’ve had custom ones made, and I love this Home Rustic Sign from Signs from the Pines or your home state (or province) with a heart for your city. Perfect for a mother-in-law or grandparent!

Etsy is a wonderful resource for finding unique and special gifts from artisans, especially if you do not have time or energy to go to local craft fairs.

Who do you have to buy for this holiday season?
