I may be a little biased (running a craft blog and all), but I really think the best gifts are handmade. Over the years, the handcrafted gifts I’ve given have been met with the greatest joy. I’m really excited to team up with Amazon Handmade to show you how it’s one-stop shopping for everyone on your list! Amazon Handmade brings the great service, reliability and convenience of Amazon to the handmade marketplace.
When you shop at Amazon Handmade, you not only purchase a handcrafted, unique gift, you also get to support an independent artisan! After browsing around, I was pleased to see that there were so many items that could be personalized (everything from jewelry to cutting boards). I later leaned that more than 50% of Amazon Handmade’s selection is customizable and made-to-order.
I expected there to be long shipping times since I was ordering from artisans, so I was pleasantly surprised when my gifts starting arriving after only a few days! Many items on Amazon Handmade include Prime two-day shipping.
Here’s what I purchased on Amazon Handmade (spoiler- everything was amazing!!!):
I can’t get enough of handmade candles! I have them scattered around my home and I’m frequently buying them as gifts. This Frankincense & Myrrh candle by Old Soul Artisan smells amazing!!! It’s vegan and soy based and it comes in a high quality jar. The packaging is minimal, classic and it will fir in with any decor.
I’m incapable of shopping for Christmas presents without buying something for myself, so I couldn’t resist this necklace! MignonandMignon will personalize this bar necklace using either a script or printed font. I’m obsessed with rose gold so I was excited to see it as an option. Of course I choose my son’s name =)
Handmade soap makes a great stocking stuffer! This soap from Prima contains mud from the Dead Sea. Mud from the Dead Sea is renowned for its ability to nourish and soothe the skin. This soap is vegan with all-natural ingredients. The bar smells great!
Christmas shopping isn’t complete until I buy presents for my fur balls! My cats love batting stuffed toys around so I knew these balls would keep them entertained! Purrs & Furs gives you the option of adding a jingly bell and/or catnip during checkout.
I’m in the process of turning Indigo’s nursery into a “big boy” room. I’ve been on the lookout for prints that are fun and colorful without being too baby-ish. This stacked car photo is perfect! The print was high quality and it came packaged very securely.
This Yarn Trees DIY is perfect for decorating. My favorite way to display them is to tape them on top on a present. I wrapped this gift with white paper and drew a car on with markers. Then I attached the tree with washi tape.
