I love buying handmade. Every since I discovered (and went a little crazy) buying prints from The Black Apple (ie. Emily Winfield Martin) on Etsy in the way way back I was hooked. It wasn’t long until I was selling art prints of my own (surprise!) followed by soap later on. In the midst of this, I also bought tons of jewelry and soap from other artisans.

I even bought handknit merino wool socks from an Etsy seller in Canada to keep my toes warm when I started selling my own soaps at my local farmers market. This in turn led to an entire new world of handmade artisans for me to fall in love with. So keeping with that theme of creating and buying handmade, here are some of my favorite handmade holiday gifts of the season – all from Etsy, of course.

Handmade Holiday Gifts

One of my favorite handmade holiday gifts to give – and receive! – is pottery. Not only is it beautiful, it’s also functional. Making it the perfect handmade gift for anyone on your holiday gift list. I feel incredibly fortunate to live in an area abundant in talented potters. Many of whom pass their gift forward either through teaching or internships. I recently met a new potter who I fell in love with on sight. (Well, her pottery. Although she is remarkable as well.)

Shop IMC Clay for your handmade holiday gifts. One of my favorite handmade holiday gifts to give - and receive! - is pottery. Not only is it beautiful, it's also functional.

I met Ingrid Chase earlier this month at our city’s biannual RIOT Rooster – a yearly indie craft fair. Not only is Ingrid local to my hometown, she’s also an art teacher. Her online shop, IMC Clay, is filled with unique, one-of-a-kind mugs, succulent planters, vases, ring dishes and even earrings! So there’s something for everyone on your list.

I’m especially fond of the texture and hand sculpted elements that Ingrid adds to each of her pieces. It not only makes her work unique (and recognizable) but it also makes each piece she produces its own little work of art.

My dear friend, Bambi, and I both purchased items from Ingrid this month, though selfishly as a treat for ourselves. Bambi bought a pair of one-of-a-kind (reversible!) earrings while I purchased what is my new favorite coffee mug. You can shop with Ingrid for your handmade holiday gifts (and self indulgences) on Etsy here.

Bright Life Skincare. Handmade natural beauty and artisan skin care products. These natural skin care products are perfect for handmade holiday gifts & ideas. A lovely addition to any seasonal gift baskets as a handmade gift for her. Or try her natural sore muscle rub as a handmade holiday gift for him!

Bright Life Skincare is another wonderful local artisan that I had the pleasure of shopping with during RIOT Rooster. Izzy Donahue sells a variety of natural skin care products in her Etsy shop. Her products include bath soaks, lip balms, sugar scrubs, muscle rubs and facial serums. While many of Izzy’s products are well suited for stocking stuffers, they also are perfect for creating a handmade holiday gift basket. For a holiday themed gift, consider gifting her peppermint foot soak.

Handmade body butter from Unbound Elements for handmade holiday gifts this winter. Try not to eat yourself after using this one, we DARE you! Unbound Lemon Biscotti Body Butter smells like the pure deliciousness of your grandmas fresh baked lemon cookies straight out of the oven. Light, sweet, tart and rich at the same time, this Body Butter will leave your skin (and nose) in pure ecstasy!

I also purchased two lip scrub and lip balm duos from Unbound Elements at the same event to give as handmade holiday gifts this winter. Also local to the area, Lyndsey Dickerson is a talented artisan who crafts not only natural beauty products, but amazing jewelry as well. Her beard wax and mens fragrances make great handmade holiday gifts and ideas for him. While her hot chocolate lip balm is perfect for the kids’ stockings.

Show off your unique style with one-of-a-kind handcrafted jewelry from Unbound Elements. These beautiful rings, earrings and necklaces will always be in fashion and they make great handmade holiday gifts for her.

For handmade holiday gifts for her, I’m fond of Lyndsey’s coffee body scrub and butters. However, I also love her one-of-a-kind rings, earrings and necklaces.

Essential oil gift box for unique holiday gifts. This adorable wooden gift box from Unbound Elements includes a set of two essential oil blends of your choice, one diffuser necklace, description cards and two aromatherapy inhalers.

Lyndsey’s other half, Stuart Harrison, also has an Etsy shop called Splintered Thought. He handcrafts heart-shaped wooden jewelry boxes that are perfect for anyone planning to pop the question over the holidays.

Handcrafted unicorn stacking rings from Magpie Metalworks. Who doesn't want a unicorn ring!? This 3 ring set is completely handmade of sterling silver. If you love fantasy then these rings are for you! Makes a unique Christmas stocking stuffer for a teenage daughter.

Or, if you have a teenage daughter, consider these handcrafted unicorn fantasy stacking rings. These can be purchased as a group or individually depending on your budget.

Handmade sterling silver skull ring from Magpie Metalworks. A unique Christmas stocking stuffer idea for him. This is one of the coolest rings! I use a shot plate made by another maker to form the skull and solder it to a half round hammered band. I then add a rich patina to the ring before polishing to give it a darker look and feel. It's chunky, rustic, and awesome!

I also love this more masculine skull ring for the guys. All of these rings are made by another local artisan, Piper Lane of Magpiper Metalworks. While she did not attend RIOT Rooster this year, I did meet her there the year prior. In addition to rings, Piper also sells earrings, bracelets and pendants.

Contemporary hand embroidery. DIY cactus embroidery kit from Hoops and Expectations. Handmade holiday gifts for fellow friends and crafters.

I recently made a purchase from Hoops and Expectations for a birthday gift for my dear friend, Bambi. After staying with her during my separation, I learned some pretty nifty things about her that I didn’t know before. As it turns out she is completely kick ass at embroidery. She has a small trunk that she keeps on display in home. One night, we opened up that trunk, and I got to see inside. The trunk was filled with the most beautifully embroidered pillows. I expected her to tell me they were machine made, as the designs were so detailed and completely perfect. But no. Bambi had made them all herself!

While these days Bambi makes and sells her own seed bead jewelry, she used to sell embroidered pillows when she lived in Wisconsin. So knowing her love of David Bowie and her desire to find the time to embroider again, I bought her an awesome David Bowie embroidery kit for her birthday. However, if David Bowie isn’t your thing – or your friend’s – Hoops and Expectations sells other complete DIY embroidery kits for your fellow crafters. In her shop you find all kinds of fun kits from cacti to the Grinch! In fact, I’m thinking of trying out one of these amazing kits for myself in the New Year. You can browse all of the designs offered by Hoops and Expectations in her Etsy shop here.

Flower metal trivet hot plate. If you're looking for houseware related handmade holiday gifts, then be sure to check out Highland Ridge Rustics. Located in Tennessee, this shop offers hand cut metal Christmas tree ornaments, wall hooks, signs and other home decor and even products to organize your life. I bought a mail organizer from them around two years ago and absolutely loved it! However, lately I've been eyeing the line of handmade trivets they offer. These come in other shapes, including one the shape of Texas, and make a great gift for anyone who loves to cook or entertain.

Simply slip the ingredient list under the bakers twine to safely secure it to your soap.

How to Package Round Soap

One of my favorite ways to package round soap is by using washi tape. You can do this one of two ways. You can either tightly wrap your soap in foodservice film, then wrap a piece of washi tape around the diameter of the bar. Or, you can cut brown paper to fit the diameter of your soap. Then wrap the paper around the diameter. Tape the paper closed. Then add decorative washi tape over the brown paper (as pictured above.)

If you’re looking for ways to package your soaps to sell you can also put your label around the diameter of your soap in lieu of the washi tape. Or try one of the following ways to package round soap. I love how attractive the soap label is on these ways to package soap from Etsy sellers.
