12 thoughtful Etsy gifts to buy right now

Christmas shopping can quickly become dizzying. You’re tackling chaotic crowds, scrummaging through endless shopping lists, and handing over well-earned cash for something rather ordinary. After searching through endless sites looking for personal gifts as Christmas Eve quickly approaches, I was becoming more frustrated than inspired. A recent ad on Facebook reminded me of Etsy; an online shopping spectacular that somewhat slipped my mind in recent years.

As a place where you can find creative personalised and handcrafted gifts, Etsy is where you’ll be saved from Christmas shopping exhaustion. Plus, you’ll be supporting small, independent makers from around the world. So whether you’re sourcing a gift for the writer in your family, the make-up guru, or a newborn baby, Etsy has to have it. Yes, you could easily spend all day scrolling through fancy wall hangings, oil diffusers and cat portraits on the site, but I’ve curated my favourite picks of the best Christmas gifts you can buy right now. Check out my edit below:

Harper’s Bazaar wall art, €5.34

Makeup storage crate, €26.81

Personalised newborn hat, €14.59

Sewing bag, €16.34

Father of the Bride cufflinks, €43.78

Bath caddy, €29.20Personalised toy box with cushion design, €157.69Floral monogram travel mug, €17.52

Dear Diary inspirational planner, €26.87

I Just Want Pizza beanie, €16.34

Personalised friends print, €19.27
