I have a soft spot for handmade gifts. I really, really love giving and receiving something that I know has been lovingly created by hand. I also love supporting local artisans who are working hard to create beautiful/delicious/useful items.
The best place to buy unique handmade gifts online is Etsy. I have been shopping on Etsy for many years, and have found lots of wonderful artisans and handmade items. But there is A LOT of stuff on Etsy these days, and it can feel overwhelming if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for.
Don’t fret, because I have curated an amazing list of handmade gifts for women featuring 12 incredible artists and artisans. All of these items are made by hand in the United States by real people so you can feel good about buying these handmade gifts.
Handmade Wearable Gifts
Tom Designs uses a sample of handwriting provided by you on these bracelets (necklaces are also available). This makes such a unique and thoughtful gift, perfect to remember a loved one or capture a young child’s ever changing handwriting.
Handbags by Daphne creates vegan, limited edition bags of all types, and she has LOTS to choose from. This blue beauty can be worn cross-body, as a backpack or as a shoulder tote. It’s versatile AND gorgeous!
I’m coveting almost anything from Nicola and the Newfoundlander, but especially love this lightweight tee with hand drawn trees.
Handmade Consumable Gifts
Handmade truffles from Xocolatl Chocolates come in more than 30 unique flavors, and they are AMAZING. I gifted myself a box of these delectable treats several years ago and devoured them without sharing even one. They are preservative free and shipped fresh, so don’t leave them under the tree for too long!
For the chai tea lover in your life, this set by Sullivan Street Tea & Spices comes with everything you need to create your own perfect chai blend. And look how beautifully it’s packaged!
This set of 3 handmade and completely natural hair masks by Andrea’s Organic Market sounds so fabulous! Andrea’s shop is packed full of all kinds of wonderful natural products. She makes everything from soaps and a full skin care line to herbal tea blends, healing salves and herbal tinctures.
I was gifted this cacao drinking chocolate set from Flying Bird Botanicals several years ago, and it STILL tops my list of great gifts. It includes 3 handcrafted cacao blends and comes beautifully packaged. Any chocolate lover would appreciate this gift.
Handmade Gifts For the Home
How perfect is this little salt bowl from ceramic artist Paulova?! I especially love beautiful gifts that are useful, and this one would be used daily at my house. (PS – it’s only $15!)
Beeswax food wraps are a great gift for anyone who wants to use less plastic in their kitchen. And look how pretty this set from The Traveling Bee Shop is! Who wouldn’t want to wrap their leftovers in something this lovely?
I love giving (and receiving!) functional gifts that are beautiful. This cloth napkin set by June December is made of soft flour sack cotton and handprinted with eco-friendly ink.
Seedbombs make such a fun gift! This colorful set by Paper Sprouts is packed with wildflower seeds so your recipient can spread flowery, wildflower cheer anywhere their heart desires.
I love me a unique, standout kitchen towel, and this handprinted towel from The High Fiber fits the bill nicely! This shop has lots of fun printed towels and cloth napkins that I would happily use in my kitchen.
