Unique Artisan Christmas Gifts from Etsy

Handcrafted gifts are unique and meaningful—just like your family and friends. Choosing presents for special people can be a daunting task, but unique, handmade items complement almost any home. What’s more, their purchase supports individual craftspeople instead of corporations. 

You’re likely familiar with Etsy, the online marketplace of craftspeople from all over the world who use the site to directly sell their handiwork to customers across the globe. But you may not know about the company’s mission. Dedicated to building a people-powered economy, and supporting small businesses and individuals focused on craftsmanship and quality, Etsy is “committed to using the power of business to create a better world.” Etsy encourages sustainable practices, and works to minimize its own impact on the planet and environment, as well. Last April, the company committed to being powered by 100 percent renewable energy by 2020.

Here are some of our favorite items made by Etsy artisans who are committed to using high-quality, eco-friendly materials. We hope they make your holiday season a little more special.
