Over the past month, we've been sharing all sorts of homemade gift ideas that would be great for friends and family this holiday season. We think homemade gifts are extra special because your love, personality, and thoughtfulness go into making each one, but we know that lots of time and effort go into making those gifts too. Spare time can definitely be at a minimum this time of year, so if you don't have the extra time to actually make gifts, you can still give handmade gifts to the ones you love.
I'm sure you're probably familiar with Etsy, the online marketplace where you can find all sorts of unique, handmade goods. I've done quite a bit of Etsy shopping over the past few months and I'm in love with everything I've received. Nick and I announced a couple months ago that we're planning to launch an Etsy shop in 2015, but in the meantime we wanted to share some shops that you should check out this holiday season to find the perfect gifts for your special someones!

We hope that this post inspired you to skip the shopping mall and instead shop small and support artisans that want to share their craft and creativity. What are some of your favorite Etsy shops? I'd love to discover new favorites! Share with us in the comments.
