You know what tends to get overlooked in gift guides this time of year? The little items. Cute, fun things that are great for people who only require a small gift anyway–like neighbors or a teacher–or things that make good stocking stuffers. I’ve done it, and for that I apologize to my tiny friends. I didn’t mean to leave you out. To make up for it, today I have a group of killer Etsy items that are all $15 or less. (And a chance to win them all, woooo!)
From my shop there are the paint-dipped wooden spoons. I’m partial to the gold because SPARKLES, but they’re available in a handful of other colors, too. I also wanted to toss out the idea of using the glitter clothespins as place card holders, either for Thanksgiving or Christmas/Hanukkah dinner. I hadn’t thought about doing that until a smart customer pointed it out as she was buying them at the show last weekend. Total genius move. I love my shoppers.
This little zip pouch would be so handy for holding loose change, kleenex, gum… Basically, if you know someone who carries a purse or a backpack, this would be a totally practical choice. That’s such a pretty shade of green, too.
Have you heard that, allegedly, this winter is supposed to be all polar vortex-y again? That’s the word on the street (and by “street” I mean “the Farmer’s Almanac”) and I’m a bit concerned. I love the idea of giving bright, happy scarves to friends as a way to get them through what’s coming. I own several from this shop and they’re so soft.
How unusual, I found more GOLD! We’re not great at remembering to send out annual Christmas cards, but I do keep them around for packaging gift certificates. (If you’re more on the ball with your mail-sending, then obviously you could also use these for that.) I love the modern ornament silhouettes.
Finally, it’s hard to go wrong with festive jewelry. These are the perfect size for a stocking stuffer, or as a little something for a babysitter or co-worker. Since they come in a bunch of other colors, too, you can get several pairs for an earring extravaganza.
Now that your gift-giving wheels are spinning, let me tell you what ELSE is going on with these items:
