10 Gift Ideas for Friends

Just in case you didn't get any ideas from my previous gift guide blogs, here's 10 great gift ideas that would be perfect for anyone!  Fantastic secret Santa ideas, too!

My own shop, Karilan Designs, has a variety of designer journals.  Each journal comes with 3 hand-twisted paper clips and 2 self-sticking name tags for you to customize the journal.  Mention my blog in the message to seller for a free gift!

Every present needs a tag, and SweetAndSassyCards can help with that!  You can also find full size cards and mini cards in the shop, and Sweet also accepts custom orders.

SoonerDesigner has more cards to meet your needs!  Sooner also accepts custom orders and is offering an exclusive 20% off one item in the month of December for mentioning "feature" in the message to seller at checkout!

KDemARTe makes very natural looking jewelry that is fairly asexual, so you can easily find a design for anyone on your list.  KD accepts custom orders but may not be able to do one depending on how complicated your request is.

WhatAboutPhotos sells beautiful and inspirational photography prints, greeting cards, bookmarks, and calendars.  WhatAboutPhotos accepts custom orders and can turn any image from their shop into a bookmark, card, or postcard.  WhatAboutPhotos also offers custom sizes from 2.5x3.5 to 13x19.  Postcards and Greeting Cards can be ordered in bulk (6+ for Greeting Cards and 10+ for Postcards) and will receive free shipping and a discount price, contact seller before buying so discount can be applied to the listing.  Free Shipping on orders over $15 world wide!! Sale #50 will receive 15% off their purchase and free shipping to anywhere.

SubtleHarmony has some wonderfully calming products, ranging from the Kanji magnets you see above, to chakra jewelry.  In today's busy pace, a little gift of peace would surely be welcomed by anyone!

RitzyWreaths has some gorgeous Christmas decorations which would make the perfect gift for someone who is lacking decorations or has moved recently.  It's a wonderful gift that they will remember and cherish every year.  Ritzy accepts custom orders and is offering free shipping!

PernillasSS' shop sells perhaps one of the signature items for the holidays...sweets!  You'll find plenty of very creative as well as common chocolates and sweets, so there will definitely be something you'll want to taste.  Pernillas accepts custom orders as well.  Buy any gourmet chocolate or candy and get free gourmet gift, put “CODE” in message to seller at checkout.

Teaman is something of a celebrity on Etsy.  If you frequent the forums at all, you've probably run into him more than once!  Teaman offers a huge variety of flavors of tea at great prices.  Purchase $7.50 or more before shipping and receive 25 hand blended Cherry, orange and almond Christmas teabags FREE......lesser purchases will receive ten of them! Plus there are some teas reduced to only $2 for 25 teabags.

Dpholkdesigns makes fantastic glass art and trays.  I ordered 2 of these flattened wine bottle serving trays recently and they're absolutely wonderful!  Well packaged and they'll get to you very quickly.  Dpholkdesigns accepts custom requests and was kind enough to swap out the cheese spreaders for ones I liked.  

I hope you can find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list this year!  Please also check out my gift guide blogs for her, for him, for kids, and stocking stuffers!
