I always try to shop local or from small businesses for my gifts because I like the idea of supporting the hard workers behind the small shop. Etsy is a website many creative people have utilized to build their business and you can find a wide variety of great gifts there. Here are 10 Etsy gifts your loved ones will definitely want:

For Christmas: Nativity sets seem to be a staple for many families during the Christmas season so they are a fairly safe gift idea. Though the traditional ones are great, sometimes it’s fun to have a cutesy set, too. These handmade animal nativity sets from HuttoHandmade would be perfect, with a wide variety of animals to choose from! $25-48

Etsy has many shops that provide these products but how unique and cute are these mason jar type mugs from OhDarlingDrinkware? $19.95
