Handmade for the Holidays

Posted by Cindy Kassebaum on

This holiday season I decided to start my shopping early! Every year I SAY I'm going to start early, only to find myself scrambling at the last minute for that perfect gift. Since I wanted to support small businesses this year (especially those who make handcrafted items!), I knew shopping early was a must. In my search I found some amazing gifts! And because I'm all about sharing my shopping finds, I thought I'd help you start your shopping early as well. Check out these AMAZING gift suggestions for that special someone on your list:

Sirena the Mermaid
I seriously am in LOVE with this crochet Mermaid by Makin' It Mama!!! I can't tell you how many of these I have bought, they are that adorable! Sirena stands approximately 22" tall (from tip of fin to top of head) and is filled with polyester fiberfill stuffing. This handmade cutie is crocheted out of acrylic yarn with plastic safety eyes. If you have any sweet little girls on your holiday gift giving list (like I do!), this is definitely the gift to buy!!! Make sure to check out the Makin' It Mama Etsy shop (click HERE) for other fabulous gift ideas including crocheted hats, gloves, boot cuffs and more adorable stuffed toys!

Personalized Cutting Board
This AMAZING cutting board by Let's Engrave It is THE perfect gift ... for newlyweds celebrating their first Christmas, your favorite aunt and uncle who love to cook together, or your grandparents who have been married for 50 years! This top quality one-of-a-kind cutting board is custom engraved on bamboo and measures 13.5" x 1". Shipping was super fast (click HERE to order yours!).

Pineapple Dog Collar
If you're like me, my dog is showered with all kinds of Christmas gifts! This year, instead of more toys, give your favorite pooch one of these adorable pineapple collars from 4 Black Paws. Made with 100% cotton fabric, high strength thread with triple stitched stress points and heavy duty cast (not welded) D-ring. Your dog will be styling at all the holiday parties!

Coffee Peppermint Sugar + Salt Scrub
I love a great sugar scrub and who can resist this amazing combination of Abarica coffee and invigorating peppermint by Simply Caprine. These beauties make wonderful gifts for family and friends. I'll be stocking up for sure! Simply Caprine's body scrubs are made from a combination of skin softening shea butter, vitamin rich virgin coconut oil, solar evaporated Pacific ocean sea salts and organic sugar. Handmade by a mother-daughter team with fresh goat's milk from their own dairy goat herd! Check out their entire line of products HERE!

Personalized Money Clip
I'm in LOVE with this rustic copper money clip by 2 Sisters Handcrafted!!! This custom money clip measures 1" x 2.5" folded. It is not too heavy to be carried everyday and is thick enough to stand up to years of wear. The money clip can be hand stamped with your guy's initials. The hammered, oxidized and brushed pattern gives the money clip a rustic, time worn and masculine feel. A great gift for your favorite guy! You can order yours in their Etsy shop HERE!

So you can see I'm off to a great start on my Christmas shopping! Here's wishing you a successful holiday shopping season!!! And don't forget, Rock & Hardware bracelets are ALWAYS a great gift for the guy or gal on your holiday list! Check out our newest bracelets in our Etsy shop HERE!
