Special delivery! Whether you’re sending your BFF some cheer from afar or dropping off a care package for a close neighbor, these days, nothing feels quite so good as treating your favorite people (and yes, that includes yourself) to a sweet little pick-me-up. What’s even better? Supporting small businesses in the process! Read on to discover eight delightful, thoughtfully made gifts from Etsy artists that are sure to brighten anyone’s day. To pay the good vibes forward, each week in August we’ll be giving away $5,000 to one lucky Etsy customer who shops with their MastercardⓇ. Best of all: we’ll also give $5,000 to the seller whose work you purchased. And we call that a win-win-win. (See official rules.*)
