The Ultimate Etsy Gift Guide for Literally Everyone on Your List
What we need this holiday season is a magical place to cater to all of our shopping needs. We need a place with cute, trendy gift ideas suited to creative-minded individuals, who perhaps have a distinct flair for the eclectic and an undeniable love of pop culture. Oh wait, that is totally already a thing, and it’s called Etsy. Our love affair with Etsy began back when we discovered it could be the answer to all of our holiday needs, from gifting faux pas to on-fleek holiday decor. What we love most about Etsy, though, is that there’s a little something for even the trickiest peeps on your list. DIY-obsessed bestie? Check! Eccentric recipients (or the just plain weird and unexpected recipient)? Double check! And how about gifts guaranteed to crank the fun, smiles and merriment to the max? You betcha. Check out these 27 holiday finds that will quench all your holiday shopping needs without ever leaving Etsy.
1. Junebug and Darlin Feminist Modern Cross Stitch Kit ($16): Chances are you’ve got a politically minded friend who would love to have this #feminista statement piece, but we won’t blame you for keeping it yourself.
2. Custom Crayons by Sara Unicorn Crayons ($6): Tee-hee. All we’re saying is that those unicorn horns will make for a wonderfully sharp edge with which to color inside the lines while indulging in an adult coloring sesh.
3. Sassy Gals Wisdom Mugs for Couples ($30): You know when a couple gets married and suddenly you’re left gifting them both this year? His-and-hers mugs are your solution, and the cutest gift for lovebirds to use during their daily cup o’ joe.

15. Megan Marie Brown If You Can Read This Socks ($11): Seeing as how the release of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life was the biggest thing to happen to our Netflix-and-chill game since we rewatched Felicity, we’re seriously hoping for a pair of these socks in our stockings this year.

16. Pasinga Shades of Grey Notebook Collection ($12): For the writer or doodler in your life: a sleek minimalist design and the understated sophistication of a white, gray and black color palette. We approve wholeheartedly.
17. MB Made Namastay in Bed Tote ($20): Any yoga lover will appreciate this way cute and uber functional statement tote bag. After all, who hasn’t wanted to “namast’ay” in bed rather than dragging themselves to a little yog-ercise in the a.m.?
