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!
When I first met Brenny Giovis, I was her wedding DJ! Crazy right? Running my own business brought me together with a lot of great clients – many of whom I’ve stayed friends with beyond their wedding day.
Brenny Giovis is definitely one of those clients.
When we first met, Brenny was working full-time at a company as a graphic designer. She has since gone on to launch a wildly successful stationery line called Paperfelt. Nordstrom recently came calling and her cards are now sold in-store at their Ottawa location. Brenny has since quit her job and now focuses on Paperfelt full-time. It is so inspiring to read about her hard work, hustle and success.
Meet Brenny Giovis everyone!
How did you decide on a career in graphic design?
I had a crash graphic design course in high school and my teacher was pretty cool. I think I learned how to scan a logo in and clean it up in Photoshop and not much else, but my teacher was so kind and sincere that whatever she said kind of stuck with me.
I honestly didn’t even know what graphic design was until I was a semester into college. My dad was so mad because he wanted me to become a teacher and he kept saying what do you do in graphic design anyway and I couldn’t even answer him.
