Etsy holiday gift giving guide

Although it might be pushing it time wise as far as online Christmas gifts go, I thought I'd share some things I've gotten for or as gifts from Etsy that you might like!

1. My grandma is a huge stationary and card writing lover, as most people who are pushing 90 years old are. I got her some personalized stationary this year and I hope she loves it as much as I do. Bonus: because I got her two sets, I got two free cards with MY name on them as a thank you gift from the seller! 


2. For my sister's birthday last year, I got her a running medal display for her wall with a personalized message that says "don't think, just run". I haven't been to her house since so I don't know if she has put it up yet, but I thought it was a pretty cool gift (if I do say so myself).

3. For Mother's Day this year I got a beautiful necklace  in yellow gold with "zoey" stamped on it. I like it because it's a little different than your typical name necklace (aka the "carrie" necklace from sex and the city). I get compliments on it weekly!

4. I got a friend of mine a custom baby onesie, burp cloth and bib when her son Charlie was born. I got to choose the fabric, initial and font. Unfortunately, the shop is closed over Christmas, but you can save it for the next time you need a baby gift!


5. For Matt's groomsmen gifts, he got them each a secret flask in a book. He got to choose the books too! He got one for himself (what is with guys and doing that?!) and he still uses it as a little secret hiding place. I often mistake it for a real book and drop the flask on the floor when I open it to flip through the pages.


I did a lot of my shopping online this year and it has been such a pleasure not to be in malls weekend after weekend. If you're still looking, maybe give Etsy a try!! 

I have also done a fair amount of xmas shopping this year on Zulily, which is a sort of discount steals type website. Right now they have a special section with guaranteed delivery by Christmas, so you could give that a try too!!

Happy Shopping!

I have to get more into Etsy - I've seen so many cool things on other peoples blogs.

Love the medal holder! Think I may need to purchase one for myself as currently all my medals are just hanging sloppily (is that a word?) on a picture frame in my office

I did a bunch of Christmas shopping on Etsy last year but none this year! I have done some online shopping but I hate paying an arm and a leg for shipping so I've been hanging out at the mall.

I get Zulily emails but isn't their shipping outrageous? Everytime I go to buy something I just can't justify the shipping costs.

Unfortunately for me Lululemon has free shipping.

I actually don't find the shipping too bad. But maybe it's because I factor in the discount of the item... I don't know. But I do love free shipping!
