Isn't it fun to buy gifts for easy people? You probably have friends who share the same style or love the same things as you, and shopping for them is easy, fun and even exciting...because you know they'll love what you buy!

I've curated some of my very favorite items from Etsy for your consideration this year! I either have purchased these items in the past (and love them) or they are on my own wish list! You can click on the shop names below to go right to each shop, or click on the picture to be taken directly to that product.

Pillow Covers and Home Decor

Can anyone have enough pillows? Girls know that you need everyday pillows, as well as seasonal ones...and a sofa just looks better with fun pillows on it!

Returning Grace
Stephanie is a doll and she makes beautiful pillow covers, tea towels, stockings and even cutting boards! Her products are made with attention to detail and I have loved everything I have received from her! You have the option to customize the color, and often add personalization, which always makes a thoughtful gift!

Nest of Petals
Rosanna is so kind, and her hand-stitched items are truly unique! They would make perfect gift items for any friend. Everything is made by hand!

Candles are a girl-thing, aren't they? Mr DIY just rolls his eyes when I buy another candle. But you need multiple candles for each season because scents are what memories are made of...and girlfriends get that! Look at these holiday scents...mmm!

320 Sycamore Candles
Jen pours all her soy candles by hand, using 100% pure soy grown on American farms. They contain no paraffins or additives, which gives a cleaner burning candle. I love the unique scents that she comes up with each year, and the packaging is so cute!

Dreamy Throws

Kind of like you can never have too many pillows, you can never have enough cozy throws! I have purchased from both of the sellers below and can attest to the quality and dreaminess of their products! We girls enjoy cozy things, and wrapping a comfy, soft throw around you when you're watching movies or reading a book is an absolute must!

Simply French Market
Can it get any dreamier than chenille and ruffles?? Terri makes gorgeous items for a shabby farmhouse home, from bed linens to throws, curtains, Christmas tree skirts and even a ruffled dog throw!! I seriously want one of each item in her shop! 😉

Shamaras Pretty Things
Shamara's tag line is "Find your happy here" and you will quickly see what she means with a simple scroll through her Etsy shop! I have come to know this sweet lady, and she puts her heart into everything she touches...she is delightful! She creates so many items that would be perfect gifts for any girlfriend on your list!!!

This chunky chenille throw came to my home a month or so ago, and I'm still so much in love with it! It's the perfect weight...not too heavy...just right! My daughter keeps trying to steal it!

Signs have become incredibly popular in home decor because the written word is powerful! Words evoke emotions...and speak to something deep within our hearts!

Par La Grace
I have worked with Jessica and she is so sweet, very easy to work with and her signs are just beautiful! She is happy to personalize her signs for you, just let her know what you want!

Lindsay crafts her jewelry and small accessories in sunny Florida. I love these rose gold leather leaf earrings, and they're available in two sizes! You'll find leather tassels, keychains and more jewelry in her store!

You'll find a plethora of fun, handmade items in this shop, but the buffalo check handbags have stolen my heart! A good handbag is the gift that keeps on giving! Your friend will think of you every time she shops!! Have one monogrammed for a friend for a great gift idea!
