2021: The Handmade Gift Guide

Back with my second gift guide and this one has all handmade, hand crafted and/or artisan products. Giving a handmade item ensures that no two pieces are exactly alike, just like those you love most. Most of these come from small businesses so even better!

As a reminder…I tend to curate these gift guides based on products we may already own, products I have my eye on, products that others share, and products from brands I’m already a fan of. There will be some inevitable cross-over so be sure to check out all the guides as I continue to share them.

Some items may sell out quickly (but could restock) so you’re best ordering as early as possible this year especially because of inconsistent shipping times, and the handmade nature of some of these. For whatever it’s worth, items I originally included went out of stock while I was making this guide! I’ve also found there’s no rhyme or reason to what’s on schedule and what isn’t these days. Even items from the same company have been on different timelines.

And lastly, THANK YOU for checking the guides out and for shopping directly from them if you feel so inclined. It helps keep this lil business of mine going.
