Etsy is a major shopping destination when it comes to finding one-of-a-kind gifts for any special occasion. Whether you’re shopping for a passionate griller, a coffee buff, or your wine-loving bestie, Etsy quite literally has it all, and all from talented makers that you may not get the opportunity to support otherwise. We especially love their selection of customizable kitchen tools, cutting boards, and glassware, which make for a great way to add a personal touch to this year’s holiday gift lineup. Also, choosing a special gift from Etsy helps to support smaller businesses and up-and-coming brands. 

After scouring the pages of Etsy, (and, admittedly, adding a few gifts into our own shopping cart along the way), we compiled this list of our favorite gifts for any occasion — and any budget. From gorgeous ceramic pottery and quirky foodie-focused decor items to gourmet treat gift boxes and DIY brewing kits, we stand by these editor-favorite picks from the artisans over at Etsy. Let’s dig in.
