The Etsy Shop Gift Guide

Shopping via Etsy not only supports small business owners, but helps us find the perfect gift to either give or add to our own wish list. But actually navigating your way through Etsy? That’s another story, which can be quite overwhelming. While there are plenty of wonderful shops that do not fall into the narrow descriptions below, these are among some of my personal favorites. This list may help you find that last minute Christmas gift (make sure to check the shipping deadlines or contact the shop owner), but we hope this guide will help serve as a reference point you can come back to time and time again. (Note: my obsession with animals and mid-century decor will be more than evident).

Melissa

Social Media/ PR Editor at Literally, Darling
Once a music/arts/culture publicist in Austin, Melissa is now a dog lady (and author of Literally, Darling) living in North Texas. (She'll get back to Austin as soon as she can!) She is currently studying Lyme disease (MSIDS) and other tick-borne infections that are causing a nationwide health epidemic. She also studies Netflix. She is a full-time Lyme disease slayer (diagnosed with late stage/Chronic Lyme in August 2013), but keeps up her entrepreneurship spirit as much as possible. She’s a moderate in beliefs, but hasn’t quite translated this ideology into her shopping, researching, and crafting "hobbies." She is addicted to animal paraphernalia (whether it be dog sweaters or mid-century brass animals), combining pleasure with work, and welcomes things in paradox. She loves New York City just as much as the Irish hillside, and finds that travel, hot tea, and cuddling puppies equate to the best therapy. She hopes to one day combine her passion for animal welfare and mental health into a therapy farm benefitting both animals and the chronically ill. Melissa rambles about health, relationships, religion, animals, entrepreneurship, family, home décor, music, and fashion. She really misses Jesse Pinkman.
