One of my favorite places to find unique party decorations or gifts is Etsy! It’s a fabulous marketplace where small business owners work really hard to create beautiful handmade pieces and I love supporting their efforts. Right now, Etsy is hosting their first ever global award program called The Etsy Design Awards (or “The Etsies” for short). The competition highlights the best of Etsy and celebrates all of the talented people behind the winning products. I dug through the 160 global finalists and found Eight of the Best Gift Ideas and Party Must-Have’s that you simply have to see! Keep scrolling for my favorite finds…
The Etsies cover products in five categories: Inventive Decor, Signature Style, Festive Celebrations, Earth-Friendly and Creative Collaborations. I found goodies in each category and think you’ll love these ideas for unique gifts, party favors and party decor!
Available in five colors, this gorgeous and elegant leather clutch can be imprinted with a personalized message on the inside, creating a truly unique gift for the woman in your life. This would make a fabulous milestone birthday present, anniversary gift or bridal shower gift!
These just make me smile!! And as a dog lover, I would adore a sculpture of my beloved Oliver as a gift! Send a photo of your favorite pet to the artist and memorialize them as a ceramic sculpture for all of eternity.
Made of foam and metal, this stunning, larger than life floral arch would make the perfect wedding arch or a stunning photo booth at your next big party! While this giant floral installation is already spoken for, the artist has so many other exquisite flower installations you simply have to check out her shop to see what you need for your next event!
Aren’t these hand-drawn personalized tattoos darling?! Send in a photo of the couple and the artist will create a unique piece of art, delivered as temporary tattoos, for your wedding or bachelorette party! So much fun!
This Jungle Safari Cake Topper caught my eye and reminded me of the intricate vintage popup books I played with as a child! The depth and colors of this centerpiece will have your guests saying, “WOW!” Plus, the artist has other matching decor items to help you completely decorate your party!
This Personalized Acorn Christmas Ornament, made of solid wood and hand-painted in copper, would make the perfect party favor for your Christmas party! The wooden acorn decoration has a leaf made from walnut wood which can be engraved with a name or a date too. I actually think these would be fabulous sitting atop napkins as place cards for Thanksgiving Dinner – a memento your guests will appreciate and remember for years to come.
A beautiful keepsake, perfect for weddings and anniversaries, this intricate papercut piece of art can be personalized for the wedding or special occasion venue of your choice. While it’s an ideal gift for a First Anniversary (where the traditional gift is paper), it would also be a great way to memorialize a childhood home, a treasured vacation home or other special and meaningful place.
These lovely leather bookmarks, available in five colors, can be personalized with a name, date or message to create something truly unique. The personalized bookmarks are stamped, burnished and painted with metallic gold by hand. These would make beautiful party favors, gifts for your wedding party or a special memento for the book lover in your life.
