Holiday cheer is in the air! And you know what that means—time to get shopping!
While we love taking advantage of all those Black Friday deals at our favorite retailers, there’s a certain charm about supporting small businesses, too! What is more fun to open on Christmas morning than a one-of-a-kind handmade gift? (The answer: Not much else!)
That’s why we turn to Etsy—one of our favorite websites for unique holiday gifts. But because it can be, you know, kind of overwhelming, we’ve done all the dirty work for you and listed ten of our favorite shops below to kick-start your shopping spree!
