It's that time of year! Those holiday celebrations and family gatherings will all be here before you know it. I never want to show up empty-handed to someone's house so did some exploring on Etsy this morning to stock up.
Of course, I always like to default to something more natural so they're perfect for that earthy, nature lover. Also, just the fact that they're specially made by artists or makers really takes it up a notch!
I just placed an order for these pouches of simmering spices. This one is eucalyptus and citrus but there are also other scents. I love the idea of a simmer pot. They fill your entire home with natural scents of the season. Go here to see the other scents.
Here's another great smaller gift item. I like to hand these out handmade soaps out generously around the holidays. I think I even gave one to my favorite barista last year! This box includes 14 small soaps. Go here to snag a box!
For your friend who loves to cook, this "Herb Stripper" seems perfect! It is handmade out of olive wood! Pair it with a bottle of wine, a nice jar of olives, and some nuts.
Go here to snag one.
In the past I've received a couple beautiful handmade wooden bowls like this one and just love them. I use them all the time! So it was necessary that I add one to this list. I love the shape and the beautiful coloring! Click here to select one!
For your wine-lover friends! I just love this Wine Presentation Board. You can of course choose from different colors and layouts. I ordered this exact one but honestly, would love to keep it myself! Go here to learn more and see all the options.
These are just a few items that I fell in love with while doing some early morning shopping. Don't forget to keep some bows, bags, and tissue on hand so you're ready with a gift at a moment's notice.
