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 where you can find unique gifts that are sure to please.
I’ve put together a gift shopping guide from Etsy with items that range from women’s clothing, jewelry, decorations, home goods, and pet products. Etsy is also the place to go for handmade and vintage goods, 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 things you enjoy.
Unique gifts especially for Baby Boomers
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 order in a variety of colors.
Stunning women’s clothes
For spring you may enjoy this Om Shirt. It’s handmade with a vintage BOHO style. I think it’s gorgeous!
These tote bags are hand monogrammed so you’ll always be able to find your purse in a crowd.
Get your hippie on with this fabulous BOHO Maxi Skirt.
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 be 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 Pashmina Scarf in multiple colors. It will add pizzazz to any outfit, don’t you think?
Everyone needs a sun hat. This Bohemian style straw hat is so adorable and sexy! Keep the sun off your face and look great on the beach or vacation.
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.
A gift for the absent-minded – Can you relate?
Ever forget what day it is? This standing calendar called “What Day Is It? A Perpetual Calendar of Week Days,” helps you remember what day it is. Sit it on your desk or kitchen table and flip it for each day of the week. I know it’s been handy for me. How clever is that?
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?
Or if your pet is naughty like one of mine is, he may need a cute little doggy belly band to keep him from making no ’s in the house. Most belly bands fall off but this one attaches to your doggie’s harness which is brilliant! It’s soft and comfy. Just ask my dog!

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.
