Guest Curator: We Are Scout find Meaningful Gifts

We Are Scout is a lifestyle blog and joint collaboration by Australian bloggers Lisa Tilse (formerly the red thread) and Rebecca Lowrey Boyd (formerly Wee Birdy). Lisa and Rebecca have been blogging for a combined 13 years, along with many years’ experience in the magazine, publishing and design industries. We asked Lisa & Rebecca to put together a gift guide with meaning from Etsy for this Christmas.

Here’s a special curated gift guide for you today, which we have produced for one of our all-time favourite online destinations for presents. Our mission, courtesy of Etsy, was to curate a selection of our favourite “meaningful gifts”. And what a delightful mission it was, too!

After all, we think Etsy is the best online marketplace for buying unique and meaningful gifts directly from local makers, designers and curators. We love shopping on Etsy because we get to buy handmade, while supporting creative individuals and small businesses. If you want something special, one-of-a-kind, custom-made or personalised, Etsy is your best bet for nailing that perfect gift.

This Christmas, Etsy Australia’s community of makers, designers and curators have joined forces for the #makeforgood initiative, and create a silver lining for young girls living in poverty. At least 20% of the value of each item featured in the #makeforgood collection will be donated to Because I Am A Girl, a Plan International initiative.

We were inspired by our theme of “meaningful gifts” to include some of our favourite #makeforgood finds in our gift guide today.

Here, we’ve rounded up our top 20 meaningful gifts on Etsy. All handmade, all thoughtful, all very personal finds.
