8 Awesome Etsy Christmas Gift Ideas


I have been scouring the internet for you. My latest 2015 Christmas gift guide includes The BEST Etsy Christmas Gifts I have found that are handmade and charming. I also love supporting a small business at the same time.

If you’re thinking of ordering anything custom – do so now! There’s usually a long lead time to get something made and Etsy shop owners are usually slammed at Christmas time – plus you need to factor in shipping. Click through each link for more info on pricing and timing.


Here are my top 10 favourite Etsy Christmas gift ideas!

1) Scratch Map – Let’s be frank, I just want one of these myself to hang over my desk. Scratch off a country every time you visit a destination and get yourself motivated to see the world! (more…)

2015 Christmas Gift Guide for Foodies


Garlic Grater & Oil Dipping Dish – Why don’t I have one of these? Perfect for dipping bread with freshly grated garlic and high quality olive oil. Raw garlic is great for you too!

Happy holidays! Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Do you have a few foodies on your list?

I really, really try to kick things off early and I like to order a lot of my gifts online and from etsy. Since a lot of the items I buy are homemade, I like to give myself lots of lead time to get it before Christmas Day. This is especially true with etsy gifts!

I’m also a huge foodie and a fan of giving (and getting) edible and food-inspired gifts! Here are my top 2015 Christmas Food Gift Ideas for the chef or foodies on your gift list. Click on the link for more info + pricing. Enjoy!

2015 Christmas Gift Guide


Christmas is just around the corner and we have an all-new 2015 Christmas Gift Guide for every person on your list. Here are This Beautiful Day’s best picks for this year:

For The Yogi – I fell in love with Saje’s You’re Awesome Yoga Kit which gets me all ready and in the zone for a good stretch and sweat sesh. The little pouch is made from recycled yoga mats and the kit features a transition mist I spray on in the car to get me a little more zen. I then roll on a bit of the Peppermint Halo remedy to relax me during class and I use the antibacterial mat spray to clean my mat after class. OM. It will help you get through 2015 Christmas – we swear!


For The Host – This stylish Infinity Scarf will keep your favourite host or hostess warm over the holiday season. I love the ode to the wool sock and the fact the purchase of this scarf will benefit Plan Canada as a result. Definitely a gift that gives back!

For The Student – Last year I featured this Breakfast Sandwich Maker from Hamilton Beach which was a serious hit at my sister’s office! This year, I bring to you the Burrito Breakfast Maker – great for a student, a secret santa or work colleague. Just scramble an egg with your fave toppings, warm your tortilla and add salsa. I mean who doesn’t love burritos??? It’s our top 2015 Christmas Gift Idea. (more…)
