Merrymaking Gift Guide 2013

Tis the season, y'all!
Gift giving time is right around the corner.  If you're like me, as soon as Halloween passes, I start getting very excited to buy Christmas gifts for everyone on my list.  This year I decided to do something different and I started perusing Etsy for handmade gifts.  The possibilities are endless and there are options for everyone.  I partnered with a handful of Etsy shops to share some great gifts (and discount deals!!!) with my little chickens.

Coffee Before Talkie mug from 
Can you imagine a cuter mug for your morning cup of caffeinated gold?
I'm in love with all of the cups in Megan's shop, but this one was my super favorite because it is often my morning mantra.

Lit Handmade Recycled Wine Bottle Natural Soy Candle from LITSOYCANDLES
I love every single item in this shop! The packaging, the recycled bottle, and the AMAZING scent of this candle is everything!  Jordan and Taylor have many delicious spirited scents to choose from (I picked Chardonnay) including Riesling, Merlot, and Mimosa.  Perfect for the sommelier in your life or just for the girl who loves yummy candles!!!!

Latitude & Longitude Bracelet from
One of my dearest and best friends moved away from Memphis to Atlanta, and this is the PERFECT gift to give her a little bit of home to see when she looks down on her wrist.  The coordinates of our favorite little city on a skinny brass cuff is personable AND fashionable. WIN WIN! Sarah also has necklaces & keychains available for personalization! Oh, and she can ship in gift packaging right to your gift reciepient! Faboosh!

Orange Amp Flask from 
In Rebecca's shop, I found possible gift ideas for the hardest person to please on my list! There are tons of flask ideas in her shop.  From wedding parties and customized engraved options, the possibilities are endless.  My guitar loving father will adore this orange amp flask, I can't wait!  SO FUN!

Paper Garland from 
The off white paper garland really inspired me to get in the holiday spirit! I love the delicate look of the garland, I need to get my hands on some more of them.  Linsey has tons of colors to choose from and hand makes the sweet garlands with a variety of different sizes of circles and shapes!

Do What You Love print from
I want to plaster my walls with every single print from this shop.  Lauren has so many beautiful items, quotes, and SO MANY SEQUINS!  The quality is great and the prices are so affordable.  If prints aren't what you are looking for, make the seasons bright with these hangers!!!


  1. Great job...thanks! ~ ArtsDelight

  2. These were great! I got a couple things from this list, thank you! Quick question- for the "Do What You Love" print, did you put that in a regular 8x10 frame?

    1. Oh great!!! I love to hear that. It is an 8x10 but I had to trim it a little bit with a paper cutter! The prints are 8.5x11!
