Wonderful Handmade Hearts Day gifts for her

Standard

I hardly ever have time to really write on this here blog, but felt the need to share some cool finds just in time for Valentine’s Day. Handmade gifts are a welcome change from an emergency trip to the mall on your lunch hour ( hear this guys!) and you will be giving a gift that will really speak from the heart!

Jewelry is always a popular option and you can’t go wrong with this fantastic heart necklace from BluKatDesign on Etsy. I love the texture and color of this one!

Maybe she loves to be pampered; a fun gift would be some hand made soap from the talented SunbasilGarden; they look good enough to eat!

What to get that special hostess this Christmas

Standard

I know a lot of people forget to bring hostess gifts these days, but I found a bunch of cute items that you will love to give if you can part with them 😉

I have to share how much love I have for Etsy shop Sunny Patch Soapworks I found them through the Handmade Movement team that I participate in on Etsy  and am now hooked on Kelly’s wax tarts and melts. Having a dog in the house makes me want to freshen things up and you can’t go wrong with these fresh, not overpowering scents. P.S. Anjou Pear, I love you!

Next up is a wonderful gift that is fun and practical too. Who wouldn’t love beautiful towels like the ones Michelle of Etsy shop The Vintage Home Studio creates. She takes bar mop towels and turns them from ho-hum to wow! My bathroom even looks more festive 🙂

Most of us love coffee and maybe your hostess of the mostest does too; why settle for a boring coffee cup when you can make it fun, pretty and yours? Have Etsy shop LaBelleMadeleine make a monogramed mug cozy for your hostess. You could gift it on a sweet mug filled with coffee beans or even cocoa mix for a fun, easy gift.

Of course you could also add a sweet vintage teaspoon hand stamped with a cute, coffee-esque saying too. You can find that and more in my shop on Etsy.

I could go on for days but I wanted to show you some fun, cute ideas for a handmade hostess gift. Have fun checking out the Handmade Goodness.
