Christmas on Etsy

Wow, it feel like it's been forever since I've posted! I've been insanely busy at work, trying to get 2 weeks worth of work done in a few days before I go away on vacation. Not to mention the annual Christmas prep craziness...and we're not even decorating our apartment this year since we'll be away! *cries*

Now that I finally have a moment to breathe, I wanted share with you guys some of the awesome gifts I've found on Etsy thus far:

This first one isn't actually a gift, but every year we send out cards and I wanted to go handmade this time. I think these cards are freakin' adorable! If you look closely, you may also notice that the background is made to resemble wood grain!

I found this sweet little pillbox for my sister, who is always forgetting to take her medications and vitamins. Plus, the saying on it is perfect for her because her nickname as a child was "Trouble" (one guess why haha).

My best friend is a long-time vegetarian/occasional vegan and recently started following a raw diet, so I was super psyched when I found these delectable raw truffles!

I have my eye on this adorable felt pincushion for my sister-in-law who is a super-duper sewer.

I still have no idea what I'm getting for my brother. Have you guys come across anything neat on Etsy for music lovers? He's really into DJ'ing, house music, playing guitar, etc.

Welp, that's all I've come up with so far. I hope you're having as much fun as I am tracking down unique and handmade gifts this year  ;)

Another Great Gift Guide

It's snowing like crazy right now and winter is in full swing, which also means that my Christmas shopping should be gearing up too. Unfortunately, I think this is going to be one of those years when I end up leaving most of my shopping until the last minute. I'm aiming to find ALL of my gifts locally or on Etsy, so I better get my butt moving and start looking! I did already pick out a few gifts for people on Etsy, and my Mom and I went shopping yesterday in one of the small towns nearby, where I was able to check one gift off of my list. But I still have so much more to do!

Good thing there's so many awesome gift guides out there to help me narrow down my choices. I already told you guys about the gift guide over at In Honor of Design, but here's another great one at Rachel's Reviews and Giveaways. She's been featuring tons of awesome gift ideas, so be sure to visit her blog and take a look around!

How has your Christmas shopping been coming along? Is anyone else procrastinating like me?  ;)
