Am I the only one who feels like time is flying? It felt like yesterday was September, and now we’re under a week away from American Thanksgiving! After posting my best Etsy gifts for him, it’s only fair that I follow it up with a guide of Etsy gifts for her. These gifts are perfect for friends, girlfriends, sisters, mothers, cousins, wives, colleagues… pretty much anyone on your list!

These Etsy Gifts for Her = Amazing
As I mentioned in my men’s gift guide, I love these products for a few reasons.
First, because they are handmade, they are generally of high quality with superb craftsmanship. In most cases, they are made in small batches with a lot of detail and care.
Second, handmade gifts are often more unique. This makes them feel extra thoughtful. It also makes it less likely the recipients already have them!
Third, most of them can be scored at a discount! I reached out to all of the shop owners whose products I’m featuring and many of them kindly offered a coupon code for you to shop their stores. Be sure to apply the code at checkout to save!
What’s Etsy Again?
If you’re not familiar with Etsy, it’s an online marketplace for unique handmade goods, vintage items, and craft supplies. While some shops also have a physical store or participate in craft shows, in most cases products are only available online. That being said, you can use this list as inspiration for gifts you’d rather see and purchase in person!
A quick disclaimer that while I’ve shopped from some of the sellers mentioned, I’m not personally familiar with them all. I did ensure I only featured shops with excellent customer feedback.
For each product, I’ll also include a link to shop other similar products. That way, if a style doesn’t appeal to you or if shipping to your country is high, you can find an alternative!
Like with anything, make sure you do your research before purchasing.
With that said, on to the gifts!
Gift Idea #1: A Monogrammed Phone Case
Perfect for: The phone addict, the girly girl
I’m not sure about you, but I simply can’t own enough phone cases. Not only do they protect your phone from bumps and scratches, but they look adorable! Many of us have our phones with us all the time, so a cheerful accessory can brighten our day.
I love how this case has both the marble look and a rose gold finish. Girly patterns not the style you’re looking for? This shop has a huge variety of other cases to browse. Have yours monogrammed to make it more personal.
The case pictured is available in a slim design as well as with a white or black liner to provide extra protection.
Gift Idea #2: A Cozy Soy Candle
Perfect for: The homebody, the bookworm, the fragrance lover
Whether you prefer floral scents to woodsy fragrances, there’s a candle for everyone. I love candles as a gift idea since they’re experiential, can be enjoyed at any pace, and are available in a huge variety of scents. They can make any space more cozy and homey, especially in the cold winter months.
I was so excited to come across this Canadian candle maker, Anitako Organics. They carry a variety of candles, including a Balsam & Cedarwood Candle that would be perfect for the holidays and the White Gardenia Candle pictured that’s beautiful year-round.
Their candles are totally vegan, and made with pure soy wax and lead-free cotton wicks. They are free of additives, dyes, and preservatives. Looking to pick up a couple? They offer a set of two candles at a discount.

Gift Idea #3: A Chunky Knit Scarf
Perfect for: Anyone!
Oh my goodness – this scarf! The pictures make me want to reach out and touch it. These chunky knit (also known as arm knit) scarves are all the rage and for good reason. They’re oh-so-soft, super cozy, look fantastic, and aren’t your run-of-the-mill accessory. I’m not sure I would take it off!
This particular scarf is available as either an infinity scarf (or snood) or a regular scarf with two ends and comes in a whopping 33 colours! It’s made of unspun merino wool yarn which is hypoallergenic.
Love the look but don’t want a scarf? This Ukrainian seller also makes heavenly blankets!

Gift Idea #4: A Charcuterie Board
Perfect for: The foodie, the hostess
Shopping for someone who loves entertaining? A handmade charcuterie board is a beautiful gift that she may not normally treat herself to. This one is nice and simple with plenty of room for cheese, meats, and antipasto. It’s made from Cherry wood and measures 16″ long by 10.5″ tall.
Milk & Honey has some great suggestions for taking this gift to the next level: pair it with a bottle of wine or gourmet cheese! It would also make a lovely housewarming or hostess gift.
Looking for something different for a foodie on your list? This store has over 2,000 items (!) including this beautiful personalized cutting board (great for couples!) and cute serving pieces. Shipping is free within the US on all orders over $100USD.

Gift Idea #5: A Delicate Necklace
Perfect for: The jewelry lover, the girly girl
Jewelry can sometimes be difficult to gift. Many pieces are bold and make a statement that may or may not go over well. Smaller, more delicate items can be much more subtle and versatile, meaning you have a better chance of getting it right!
I actually purchased this Tiny Luck Necklace from Beau & Stella in gold a few years ago for myself and I absolutely love it. It works with pretty much any outfit, is light and comfortable, and holds up well over time. The craftsmanship is impressive and I always felt I had luck on my side when I had my horseshoe on me! I love how it’s very unique but yet doesn’t stand out too much. It’s also available in sterling silver and rose gold!
Beau & Stella has a wide variety of beautiful jewelry pieces worth checking out. Some items that caught my eye are this Crescent Moon Necklace (channeling This Is Us, anyone?) and this Canis Major Constellation Necklace (also available in zodiac sign constellations).

Gift Idea #6: A Piece of Art
Perfect for: The creative, the new home owner, the decorator
A beautiful print or piece of art can transform a place and inspire everyone in it. I never thought I was much of an art person but I fell in love with Julia Bars Art when I saw one of her paintings at my friend’s condo. The colours and textures were soothing yet energizing and the piece was just stunning. I checked her shop recently and noticed she’s now selling Giclée prints which are available at a lower price point, great for those on a budget!
Since art can be a personal thing and people have different tastes, do your due diligence. Look at the recipient’s style and home decor. Probe about their favourite colours and themes. Ask a friend or family member of theirs if they would like what you had in mind. And look into the return policy where you’re shopping!
Looking for something more DIY or on a strict budget? Download a digital print and then either print and frame it yourself, or take it to a print shop. There are cute bathroom prints, inspiring quotes, and hilarious sayings available on Etsy!

Gift Idea #7: A Practical Everyday Purse
Perfect for: The traveler, the commuter, the shopper
A well-made crossbody bag is fantastic. It keeps your hands free when shopping, doesn’t get in the way, is better for your back and shoulders, and stands up well over time. It makes a fantastic gift for anyone who spends a lot of time travelling or commuting.
This bag in particular is great for so many reasons. First: the selection! Grab it in Cinnamon, Coffee, Gray or Black and in Large or Small size. It can also be personalized and you can add on a matching wristlet pouch. The bags look spacious and have at least one inner compartment. They are lightweight and full weights and dimensions can be found in the listing. Lastly, it’s made with full-grain Italian leather for maximum quality and durability. The bags are made in Israel and ship worldwide.

Gift Idea #8: A So-Good-You-Could-Eat-It Face Scrub
Perfect for: The all-things-natural lover, the skincare-obsessed, the coffee lover
While winter has a lot going for it (the snow! the cozy sweaters!), it’s not always our skin’s best friend. The cold air can lead to dry skin and I find myself needing to exfoliate more often and moisturize my skin to keep it looking and feeling its best.
That’s why an all-natural scrub makes a fantastic gift, especially for a beauty lover. This one is a combination of vitamin-rich butters and oils (hello moisture!) and raw sugar crystals (exfoliation nation!) to buff away dead skin cells, reduce the appearance of damage, and give your skin a smoother texture. It’s made with coffee and aromatic peppermint essential oil so it’s sure to smell amazing!
Is the woman you’re shopping for not a coffee lover? This seller carries a variety of face and body scrubs in different scents. And all products from Dope Daydreamer (what a name!) are vegan, cruelty-free, and made with USDA organic ingredients.

Gift Idea #9: A Brilliant Yoga Mat Cleaner
Perfect for: The yogi
Talk about a unique gift idea! If a woman on your list loves Yoga, chances are she doesn’t have her own mat spray. They aren’t easy to find, which is unfortunate since they are so handy.
This proprietary formula lets them clean their mat naturally without smelling any harsh or unhealthy chemicals. Instead of just covering up odors, it naturally eliminates them through antibacterial and antifungal oils. The cleaner can be used both for deep cleaning (saturate the mat with spray and let it air dry) and quick cleaning (spray a small amount and wipe dry).
Looking for a stocking stuffer? This spray comes in a small, 4oz. size which is perfect for their yoga bag!

Gift Idea #10: A Cute Mug (or Two!)
Perfect for: The coffee addict, the tea lover
Delight the coffee drinker in your life with an adorable mug that will make her smile on even the earliest mornings. Mugs are a classic give that you can never have too many of. They also last forever!
It was almost impossible to pick only one item to feature from Freckled Fox Mugs! I love this set because it’s perfect to use when having a friend over for tea. It’s available in 11 oz. or 15 oz. capacity mugs, as well as a 20 oz. reusable water bottle. All of their drinkware is top rack dishwasher and microwave safe. I often have to microwave my coffee once it cools, so this is a nice feature!
