Holiday Shopping on Etsy

So it's Black Friday and you're probably doing one of two things; not getting involved in the craziness and staying home, relaxing and shopping online (as I am) or you're out there finding some good deals in stores and braving the crazy crowds.

If it's the first of the two, allow me to point out what I think are some fantastic Etsy shops to do your holiday shopping in. These are shops that are having amazing black friday sales or ones I think are just awesome.

I will be adding to this list as the day goes on and as I find great deals on Etsy.

First on the list has to be
Savor. This shop owner always has great deals on amazing bath and body products for women AND men that literally look good enough to eat. Today she's also having what she calls "Savor Saver" listings. You have to be super fast to snatch one of them up, but if you do, pat yourself on the back because what you get for the price is stunning. I just grabbed one a little while ago. A set of three shaving soaps in a gift bag for $6 and free shipping. Totally awesome.

Next, littlebrownpen. They offer great prices on quality designed printable PDF stationary sets, gift tags, calendars and more. One of the best deals on Etsy, I believe is their 3 for $10 listing which allows you to select any three printables for $10. Best of all, you can print as many of these as you wish and give them as gifts to friends and family and there's no shipping involved. Super cute.

Pretty and affordable jewelry from Candy's Art. She always has great prices and inexpensive shipping. I have purchased gifts from her shop a couple of times and she is always so sweet and helpful. There always seems to be something in her shop that I want.

Another shop with great affordable printable PDF gifts is A Little Hut. I love the printable calendar.

A great shop that's having awesome Black Friday sales is oh hello, friend. Her great prices get even better with sales throughout Monday. Adorable, colorful jewelry.

Give your loved one the gift of organization and simplicity with these calling cards or website cards from avie designs.

Grab some of these adorable tiny rubber stamps from norajane and make your own gift-able stationary sets, gift tags, bookplates, and so many other things. At $2 - $3 each these are such a great buy.

From BluLima: any purchase of $12 or more gets you a free "keep calm and carry on" poster through Monday.

coupon organizer

I just made this coupon organizer as a custom order for an etsy customer. Let me know what you think! I'm thinking of making some to sell in the shop. Find more photos here.

a mention about my meal planners:

Tee Petals ( ) mentioned the mini meal planner that she purchased from my shop on her blog. I love how she talks about using it sort of like a budget planner, for meals. She says: "I have already created my 1st week of meals (7 more to go) and have been able to calculate how much I will be spending for the 1st week." I just think that is awesome. She also just purchased a mini meal planner cozy today to keep her planner safe and cuddly. Thank you, teepetals.
