Handmade Holidays Gift Guide

Handmade Holidays

I’ve rounded up 15 items from the handmade community in celebration of the holiday season that are sure to bring tidings of comfort and joy. Since paper is near and dear to my heart, these items support indie shops that specialize in creating some of the loveliest of paper goods.

Let’s kick things off with decorations. If you’ve never decorated with paper during the holidays, now’s a great time to start!

    Love seeing all these handmade ideas for the holiday season and gift ideas (for the holidays and for birthdays for some of us with birthdays in January – tehe).

    So much nicer and thoughtful and meaningful – kinda the whole point of Christmas.

    Of course, anything with a shipping tag gets my attention πŸ™‚
