etsy finds: stocking stuffers for under $20

On this next installment of etsy finds, I bring you some great stocking stuffers for under $20! One of the hardest things about the holidays is spending money. We all want to make sure we tell those people in our lives that they mean the world to us, without going bankrupt. This is definitely wear buying local and handmade comes in handy.

I love etsy for that reason. So many great finds! Ok, so moving on. Here are some stocking stuffer ideas to get you started.

stockingstuffers1:: full moon journal :: the exfoliant scrub soap :: coconut oil sugar scrub ::

stockingstuffers2:: perpetual calendar :: cozy slippers ::
:: build your own terrarium :: infinity bracelet ::
:: herringbone zipper pouch :: perfume samples ::

I have personally purchased from several of these companies and can speak to the high quality and great products. The soap is one of my absolute favorites, I make sure to buy a bar every year as a Christmas present to my partner, and family members. The perfume samples, moon journal, and terrarium kit are all places I’ve purchased from as well. I love all of them! Especially the perfume, great scents!

etsy finds: affordable holiday ornaments

November is now far behind us. December came in with a roar, and is going to leave with hopefully just as big of a roar. I still can’t believe 2014 is just around the corner. My favorite part of the holidays is coming up with DIY projects, and gift giving guides. I’ve been blessed with the ability to always be a great gift giver, so I love sharing that with others.

This year I’m taking advantage of my ability and making a few etsy find lists for everyone. Every holiday season I buy 90% of my gifts in Antique stores, local small shops that specialize in hand made creations, and on etsy. It’s important to support local and handmade artists! Shop local! So on this edition, here’s some etsy finds, ornament style!

Image:: mod snowflake ornament :: folk art redwork owl :: :: felt sheep ornament :: personalized engraved wooden ornament ::
:: candy cane :: crocheted piggie ::

Image:: needle felted gnome :: dog silhouette bulb ornament ::
:: felt gingerbread men :: felt cat ornament ::
:: mistletoe felt :: santa hat narwhal ornament ::

One of my favorite affordable ( and yet can be incredibly cute!) items is felt. You can do so much with it! Almost all of the items above are under $10, and you can even find some great tutorials on making your own at home.

Stay tuned for some more great etsy finds this week!

Happy December!
