First of all, a primer on Etsy for those who are unfamiliar with this magical marketplace. Etsy is a marketplace of handmade, vintage, and customizable items that empowers very-very small business. From handmade Muppet Baby beanies to a vintage Helvetica cheese grater, we are swooning over Etsy finds on the daily. Great for finding unusual odds and ends for the home, Etsy also recently launched a Wedding Registry, allowing couples to curate truly unique registry collections.
And now, gift cards! We are over the moon with this latest Etsy launch, as we love to support artisans, vintage treasure hunters, and makers of all kinds. Billed as The Choose-Your-Own-Adventure-Gift, a gift card from Etsy is perfect for pretty much any occasion. Best news about the gift cards? We happen to be giving 4 $50 gift cards away!!
Gift cards are available in digital form or can be printed, and are currently limited to $25, $50, $100, or $250. Not everything on Etsy is eligible for a gift card, but you can use the “Accepts Etsy Gift Cards” filter when searching for items. This option shows up after you search for the item you’re looking for.
