Gift-giving this Christmas doesn’t have to cost you a fortune, I personally prefer small thoughtful gifts more than anything. I enjoy reading a personalised message in a card over receiving a great big pressie that I have no use for. So in the spirit of giving, here is an Etsy shopping guide for every budget.
Whether you are spending $10 or $500, there is something for everyone on Etsy and I hope we can help you give a gift within your budget with these ideas.

Under $10

If you are still unsure of what to give or simply love to leave things last minute, you can find so many downloadable prints that you can buy for under $10 and print at home. It’s an instant gift! Which is perfect for those last minute “What do I buy?” moments.

Under $25

From the kids to gifts for him and her, there are lots of fun and quirky ways to give a special gift under $25 from Etsy:

Okay so if you really, really want to go all out and spoil someone rotten there are also plenty of ideas – either for that little one’s first Christmas, to maybe even popping the question to your nearest and dearest!

I hope you’ve found some ideas for your Christmas gift shopping in this email, or I’ve at least inspired you to shop local this Christmas.
