I have fallen in love with these mini terrariums. https://www.etsy.com/listing/162152910/tear-drop-terrarium-kit-duo-collection?ref=favs_view_3 I am thinking that a group of three would look great hanging in my kitchen or office. (LOVE that you can hang them so they don't take up counter/shelf space!) I am partial to these teardrop shapes but the globes are great too and I think they would make a great gift for just about anyone.
These fun pencils from Earmark would be especially great for the teachers/writers in your life. And you can stick with your favorite phrase or choose a variety of sayings...such a great way to personalize this little gift!
Here are a few gifts that would be great for a host/hostess:
The mustache trend is still going strong and these fun glasses would be perfect for a guy or girl and likely to bring about some lively conversation and laughter. http://www.etsy.com/listing/84328113/mustache-drinking-glass-fun-drinking?ref=br_feed_37&br_feed_tlp=home-garden
How about this sweet, engraved butter knife... http://www.etsy.com/listing/88623484/spread-the-love-custom-hand-stamped?ref=listing-shop-header-0
And even though it is a butter knife, you could probably use it for soft cheeses along with this stunning, slate cheese board (which you can even write on...great for a party and selection of cheeses). http://www.etsy.com/listing/116085440/slate-cheese-board-16-x-8-with-soapstone?ref=shop_home_feat
And these tea towels are just too lovely to ignore...such beautiful color and design.
For the ladies, who wouldn't enjoy a relaxing (and pretty) spa set.
There are a ton of wonderful photographers on Etsy and while art can be a very personal preference, if you know someone well enough you can probably find a piece that they will love. This has been a favorite of mine for awhile now.
How about some ideas just for the special kids in your life...
I think this iceberg stacking toy would be lots of fun to add to any child's set of building blocks. And you can pretty much guarantee that they will be the only one on the block who has it! :)
I have seen this next item, by Manzanita Kids, in person and kids ages 1-50 were getting down on the ground to play with it! These sets are beautifully made and the building/playing possibilities are endless. I think the castle would be a great gift for the knight lover! And they even have a treehouse...so fun!
Can't forget the guys!
This keychain would be great for any dad, but especially perfect for the new dad.
If you have a guy who loves beer, these beer soaps make a unique gift.
And I have to end this post with a few, fun packaging ideas!
I love the chalkboard trend and these cards immediately caught my eye...such lovely design and sentiments.
This feather wrapping paper is simply beautiful.https://www.etsy.com/listing/162180372/2-sheets-design-wrapping-paper-mint-with?ref=br_feed_23&br_feed_tlp=holidays
Do you shop Etsy? I hope I have inspired you to take a look at some of these shops. I will be posting more gift guides over the next week or two so stay tuned!
Wishing you all a blessed Thanksgiving and holiday season!
