These custom family plates are holiday-perfect

Little Peach Print Co. is an Etsy shop by artist Sally Leach based out of Northamptonshire, UK, and her prints and decorative plates have all the charm you’d expect from a shop in the English countryside, but with a great eye for modern trends. Each custom design on the personalized plates is hand illustrated and adhered to the plate on a decal, then sealed with acrylic varnish. They’ll arrive on your doorstep in a sturdy cardboard box wrapped with yellow and white bakers twine and a gift tag, so if you’re ordering these as a gift, you can be...

Personalized paper dolls: Coolest gift in the world. Ever.

Little kids can be tougher to buy gifts for than it might seem. Either they want absolutely everything, or they can’t think of one thing they want. Which is why I’m flipping out over the personalized paper dolls from Sandy Ford Design. What are they? Basically the coolest gift in the world. You send in an image of your child and within 48-hours get a JPG of a doll that looks exactly like her (or him), along with 5, 10, or 20 outfits. Never fear if you’re not the DIY type; you can order dolls and outfits printed and ready to...

Game of (very small) Thrones

Winter is coming, but it’s going to be much shorter than usual. Or at least the characters will, and not just the Imp. We’re seriously freaking out over these amazing custom Lego Minifigs inspired by Game of Thrones. MiniBIGS on Etsy draws and custom pad-prints minifigures the same way LEGO does, which means that the details won’t fade or rub off, even during sword fights. This “Throne of Bricks” five-pack includes The Imp, Underfoot, Warden of the North, The Bastard, and Mother of Dragons. Which translates to Tyrion Lannister, Arya Stark, Ned Stark, Jon Snow, and Daenerys Targaryen. And...

Holiday ornaments without red or green or glitter. It’s possible!

If you’re like me and tend to lean towards more subtle holiday decorating (hold the beglittered talking Santa, please), you’ll love these gorgeous ornaments I found while scouring Etsy. I just can’t pick a favorite among the laser cut wood holiday ornaments at Havok Designs that are all designed and created right here in the USA. Whether you’re searching for a lovely custom hostess gift like the initial Christmas ornaments (pictured above) or want to stock up for your own tree decorating (love that poor gingerbread man!), you’ll find no shortage of fun options that even a red and green...

Pretty paper ornaments for your Christmas tree. Or non-denominational shrubbery.

Okay, I have a serious weakness for paper anything. But when it comes to gorgeous paper ornaments for the holidays? I positively swoon. So I was delighted to see the latest offerings from longtime CMP fave Frazier and Wing. I’ve been smitten with Frazier and Wing since we featured their gorgeous, handmade paper garlands a while back. And now my love grows deeper. Their beautiful line of holiday paper ornaments are such a unique, modern way to decorate your tree, whether you’re a red and green traditionalist, or like to change things up with a host of other bright or subtle color...

Dried flower arrangements for people who don’t even like dried flower arrangements

I am a real, live, blooming flower kind of girl. I don’t mind the short-lived nature of them, just to have something fragrant and alive around the house if only temporarily. But when the weather gets cold and the imported tulips in our local bodega get more and more gangly and small, I can see the value in a gorgeous dried flower arrangement and I think I’ve found the nicest ones. Flores de Sol on Etsy chooses modern, tasteful dried flower designs that don’t pretend to be live ones. A thistle mound, an assortment of dried hydrangea with berries and poppy...

Love: Perfect in any language.

Looking around Etsy for more cool Hanukkah gifts, I was so happy to discover an Etsy shop doing the most beautiful work with embroidery hoop art. (And you know how we like the embroidery hoop art.) Whatever you celebrate, there’s probably something here you’ll adore. At Buligaia, artist Adia Berkovich makes hearts that spell love in any language, and they are just so stunningly done. The Hebrew love art is such a sweet Hanukkah gift, plus you can customize it in any colors you’d like. I love how perfectly she cuts the felt to form a heart with the letters, then hand-appliques...

Gifts from Ordinary Mommy are something pretty special

Sometimes a gift comes to you, and you can tell before you even open it that it’s going to be really special. From the hand-lettered mailing label to the Swiss-dot mini clothespin and vellum gift bag, you can totally feel the love that went into making even the smallest package from the Etsy shop Ordinary Mommy. Faith Lex, a mom (obviously) from eastern Pennsylvania, designs exquisite felt animals and accessories and sells them at her Ordinary Mommy Etsy shop. These whimsical little guys would make perfect ornaments for your Christmas tree, would be darling tied onto Christmas gifts, or they’d be...

It’s booties season, baby

Just because I don’t have a baby anymore doesn’t mean I can’t drool over cute felt booties like these handmade beauties. Each pair of these adorable baby booties is made by hand, using felt and soft wool to keep those sweet little toes warm all winter long. It’s tough to pick favorites from the vast collection, but I have to say, I’m in love with the slightly unfinished feel of the applique and seam stitching on all of them. Moms of boys: I’m definitely seeing more girl-ish options, but that’s the beauty of Etsy. Just convo the artisan and see...
