Friends, in an effort to keep ahead of the madness that is the Christmas shopping season, I started buying gifts back in September (which is completely unlike me). My goal this year was to support small businesses as much as possible and so the bulk of my gifts came from Etsy.
*Note - nobody told me to endorse them, but I had a good experience, so I thought you might like to know*
I really wanted to shop local, so I sorted my filters to show Chicago sellers. I am not showing the actual items I bought for Christmas presents (because people might get ideas about what they are getting and then it just gets weird), but here are some of my new faves from these shops:
(Love the Midwest is Best t-shirt. MIDWEST REPRESENT)

Their stationery is SUPER pretty. If I had to pick one for myself, this would be it.

She has some FABULOUS things in her shop. Love love love this infinity scarf:

Here are some favorites from shops outside of Chicago:
I love her pieces. The glazes are even more gorgeous in person!

My new favorite store of all time is the Carbon Crusader:
PRINCESS BRIDE PENCILS, Y'ALL
|you can buy them here...but don't buy them all because I want some, too.|
Friends, have you bought any gifts off of Etsy for the holidays? Let me know which shops are your favorites!
