I love Etsy! It's a site dedicated to handmade artisans to sell their goods. I have so many Etsy items on my Wanna Buy Board on Pinterest. I am especially digging the sideways cross (hint, hint to hubs!). But, outside of buying things on Etsy for myself, I love purchasing gifts on Etsy.
The first reason is because they are so unique. You can literally find anything you can think of on the site. I've purchased gifts for my friends before. They are hard to buy gifts for – we all have a friend like that, right? Well, find something extremely unique on there that they will treasure forever.
The second reason I love Etsy is because it is reasonably priced. These are handmade goods. They oftentimes are more expensive because of the time/cost factor. But the prices are completely reasonable in my opinion. You know that sideways cross I mentioned? It's less than $30 and it's gold. So, you can't beat the great prices!
Finally, Etsy shop owners will have sales. During Christmas last year, I purchased a gift card for 25% off the face value from Studio Jewel. I haven't used it yet but it's only because I am having a HARD time deciding what to get! Lisa has had some great sales and coupons throughout the year too. So you can get a great deal on Etsy as well!
