I often get frustrated shopping at malls because everything is generic and kind of boring. I’ve always been someone who loves gifts that are unusual but still practical. I also love to support small business owners rather than corporate entities if I can help it. That’s why I love Etsy. It’s an online shopping site known for handmade and vintage items. It’s the perfect place to find unique gifts for Baby Boomers and others who want something unique, nostalgic, or different than what you’d find elsewhere.
I’ve put together a gift shopping guide with items I found on Etsy that range from women’s clothing, jewelry, decorations, home goods, and even pet products. Etsy is also the place to go for craft supplies, wedding items, art, collectibles and much more. I hope you like my suggestions for unique gifts but feel free to browse and find whatever you enjoy.
Be proud you’re a Baby Boomer!
Baby Boomers are a rowdy generation so why not wear a rowdy tee shirt? This “You can’t scare me, I’m a Baby Boomer” tee shirt can be ordered in a variety of colors.
Go BOHO style
You can really get your hippie on with this gorgeous Om Shirt. It’s handmade and perfect if you’re a fan of BOHO (Bohemian style) I think it’s groovy, don’t you?
These attractive tote bags are hand monogrammed so you’ll always be able to find your purse in a crowd.
Look fabulous in this stunning and colorful Women’s Tunic Top.
Of course, you need a touch of jewelry to make your look stand out. I’m a big fan of natural gemstones and love this Sea Sediment Jasper bracelet. Jasper gives you stability and is said to give you powerful protection against things that are not good for you. It also eases emotional stresses.
If you are looking for a decorative pair of earrings there are scores of them on Etsy. Don’t you think this pair of Amethyst Flower Earrings is divine?
Going to a warm place over the winter? You may want to cover up your bathing suit with this Exotic Tropical Shawl. It will make you the hit of the beach.
I also love this lovely red paisley Pashmina Scarf. It will add pizzazz to any outfit, don’t you think?
Looking for a warm winter hat? This Crochet flower beanie with a matching scarf is so adorable!
Do you love decorative pillows? Etsy has pillows and all sorts of home décor items to peak your fancy. This whimsical Peter Rabbit Beatrix Potter Throw Pillow is perfect for a nursery gift or you may enjoy it in your living room or office.
One of my blogger friends, Carol Cassara with The Healing Spirit has an Etsy shop and one of her items is Healing Candles with Crystals + Flowers. They are made of soy wax, cotton wicks, and are phthalate-free. She has embedded healing crystals, stones and flowers into them and they are absolutely beautiful.
Gifts for our furry friends
Of course, we don’t want to leave our pets out. Etsy has many unique gifts for our furry friends. Why not give your dog an adorable personalized sweater?

Something you should know about Etsy
I love when a company does good things for the world. Etsy is becoming the first major online shopping site that will offset 100% of the carbon emissions generated by shipping. Each time you receive a package from Etsy, they will balance out the carbon emissions by investing in emission reduction projects that will help keep the Earth cleaner and safer to live in.
