|This bracelet from Lenokeidesigns is a gorgeous statement piece. I love the unexpected color palette, with the rich, creamy pearls, the antiqued gold, and the lush red. |
|This is a hand-cranked wooden toy from CartoonMonster, one of Etsy's "dudes." Am I too old to want one of these for my desk? |
|One of my favorite Etsy artists, a former school teacher and an artist, SOiNTOiT, carved and created this piece of artwork. I have one of these in my bedroom. Worth the investment, definitely, as you will smile every time you see it. |
|This is another piece of art from one of Etsy's most creative artists, Serden of Serdomania, that is on the top of my "buy this" list. From his "I draw my dreams" collection, this ethereal and evocative work needs to be on your wall. |
|This T-shirt from SpeakforYourself, well, speaks for itself. Because being called smart and sexy is an alliterative epic win in the gift-giving arena. |
|These vintage-inspired old world map gift tags from FoxesandRobbers might just be the proverbial icing on your gift-giving cake. |
|I love everything from 10eisha's Etsy shop, but this is one sexy, edgy bridal fascinator and veil. Her products are cruelty-free and customizable to your specifications. |
|RogueMagnolia's hair accessories are a must. While this red and black handmade hair treat might be classy, it still can't live up to the sophistication and elegance of her WTF!?Etsy debut, at which point she showcased hair bacon. |
|And for a find so inspiring that I broke my own aesthetic red theme to feature it... Sabrieth's gaming-themed hand candy, the STFU Noob ring. |
I will probably buy this before anyone reads this blog. Just sayin...

Etsy is the next-door-artist supermall to get your personal, esoteric, idiosyncratic holiday gifts. I had a big, philosophical introspection about why Etsy is the great economic equalizer in dire economic blah blah blah, but a formatting error caused me to lose all of that... BAH HUMBUG, assholes. Just look at the pictures and imagine that I said something clever first.
