The Holidays are Sneaking Up Fast

Are you the type of person who has their holiday shopping completed so far in advance that your friends and family find it slightly annoying?  I used to be that person.  My holiday shopping was always finished by Halloween, I’m not sure how or why it even happened. Or are you the type of person who doesn’t do their holiday shopping until the night before. My husband used to be that person.  Now, the two of us are somewhere in the middle. While searching for unique and meaningful gifts I always love to check out Etsy for handmade and handcrafted items. In addition to finding creative and special gifts, it’s also nice to know that I’m supporting a small business on the other end of the order.  Here are a few fantastic gifts for that special someone in this Handmade Holiday Gift Guide. (Links to each item is in BOLD)

Handmade Soaps

The Craftsman Soap Co has a Beer Soap Sampler. It is all natural and made with essential oils for the man who loves beer and well, everyone needs to bathe.  Beer Soap Sampler, men love beer, beer soap, gift for men

Over at Linger Bath and Body you can find a lovely Rosemary Mint Handmade soap that I’m sure smells amazing.  I’ve given and also bought for myself handmade soaps in the past and sometimes they look so pretty and smell so nice that I don’t even want to use them! Handmade Soap

Unique and Fun

These adorable planters at Plant and Color would make an impression.  The Gold Dinosaur Planter would be a hit in my house for sure. dinosaur-planter, dinosaur gift, unique dinosaur, gold dinosaur
