I thought it would be fun to write about my recent Etsy purchases! I am also writing a blog post about my recent Amazon purchases that I hope to publish soon.
These are not affiliate links! I don’t know how to do that with Etsy. I just wanted to share some small business love. I broke it down into adult things and kids things so you can skip whatever you’re not interested in.
Also, I’ve never made a post like this, so I went through my orders back to November ish.
I sent this to a friend. It’s so cute and the price is amazing!
Nick actually got me these because I had been wanting shallow bowls like this for salads, but I had to include on here because I love them. He got me a set of 4 different colors and we use them for everything! We actually don’t eat a lot of pasta but we use them for salads, stews, side dishes …. I love them.
I wanted to feel festive for Valentine’s Day so I treated myself to this scrunchie and sent a few to family and friends. She included a handwritten card with my gift message on it, which I thought was really sweet of her considering each item was only a couple of dollars. And then she wrote me a card thanking me for sending to my family and friends. I love the print, and she has a few other fun ones too.
I sent this gift box to a friend and I think she liked it! I mean, I don’t think she would have told me if she didn’t, but I thought it was a good value and the seller has over 4,000 reviews.
Fully disclosure: I am real-life friends with the seller of this shop. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen me post about my friend Kristin who owns this shop. She is also a military spouse and she mostly makes beach-themed home decor and jewelry, but she recently decided to branch out into bookish things too. I absolutely had to have this bookmark when it came out, and I love it. She has wood bookmarks in her shop too.
This is another real-life military spouse friend… Etsy shops seem to be a great thing for military spouses because you can do it from anywhere and take breaks when you need to (like when you move). Anyway, I bought some of her wax wraps and coffee cozies around Christmastime to give as gifts (and for myself too). I love everything she makes!
Nick also got me a latte mug a while ago – probably a year ago – and I don’t see the exact mug in her shop right now. But I love it so much and just wanted to include her shop in this roundup.
This is my favorite recent Etsy find. M has started to getting really into singing alphabet and letters. So I thought it was time for an alphabet puzzle. I really wanted something wood and neutral looking so I got this puzzle, finished, in all cherry wood. I also upgraded the base. M absolutely loves this puzzle and it’s something I know I will hang onto for years and pass down.
M loves ducks and saying quack, so I got her this little push toy. She likes to push it around with her cars. The seller has a lot of other wood toys and I’ll definitely be purchasing more.
Over Christmas, M became absolutely obsessed with the book How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Like, we would read it over 10x per day. And it’s a long book! I bought her this crocheted Grinch and now she sleeps with it!
