etsy finds: unisex and masculine gifts

In talking with some of my friends, I realized it can be a little difficult to find gifts for the more masculine individual,or even something that’s more unisex and not pink or blue. Most of the things I found were mugs that said “Greatest Dad” or hunting shirts. I don’t know very many people that like either one of those. Here’s a few finds that I think would work great for someone whose a little more masculine, or gender neutral.

It feels like December is already flying by! Just a few days left of shopping.. kind of.

etsy finds: candles galore and a DIY

I’ve always believed one of the most universal gifts to give is a candle. Whether it be a tea light candle, a scented candle, or even a candle holder. You’d be really hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t enjoy some form of a candle. Even those that don’t like a scented candle, there’s so many options out there! I especially love all the candle holders!

If you aren’t looking for a candle, there are some great candle holder, votive holder, and even DIY projects out there. Buy a pack of tea light candles from somewhere like Ikea (I STILL have a bag full of them after my most recent purchased that was 2 years ago!) and you can come up with a dozen great ideas for them.

See, so many fantastic candles and candle holders out there! I, of course, am a firm believer in making things yourself. It adds that special touch to all gifts, and lets you get a bit creative. One of my favorite DIY projects I’ve found lately is for a porcelain holiday tree candle holder. It’s just too cute not to share!

This DIY only really requires several materials and supplies, surprisingly simple for such an amazing piece. I love the inspiration for it. I so very often go into Target and look through their home section just to leave disappointed. I can never bring myself to spend so much money on items I could make at home. Except maybe the bar cart lately, I should talk myself into buying that.. and some of their cute linens… and shoes.. Ok. I just love Target.

But back to the DIY. I’m hoping to create something so very similiar as a Christmas gift this year.

See, how can you not love the idea of giving a candle gift set to someone! It’s so versatile and there’s just a million options out there.

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.

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!
