The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

This year, Chanukah collides with Christmas, and that may leave you feeling like you have plenty of time to buy all your Chanukah gifts, but don’t be fooled. The Festival of Lights will come sooner than you know it, and if you wait to shop until December 23rd, you’ll be fighting crowds and lines and Christmas music to buy for everyone on your list. That’s why I’m giving you a head-start with the Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide for 2016.

Why Etsy? Why not other online retailers? There are more gift guides coming, but I specifically wanted to highlight makers who create unique products. When you buy from makers, you support a local economy. You can find a unique gift from as close as next door or as far as the Holy Land. Better yet, Etsy helps you find the perfect symbol of your affection with their Editor’s Picks!

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

1.) Studio Armadillo

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

I’m OBSESSED with this shop. All of the ceramics from Studio Armadillo are to die for. Think mid-century meets pastels. I would be happy with any item from this shop, but I fell in love with this fan-inspired menorah.

2.) Judaica Art Design

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

These brass dreidels are so cool. They remind me a little of Inception. There are many designs to choose from, and they are all made in Tel Aviv.

3.) Yahalomis

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

Yahalomis offers ceramics that are handmade with a refined, contemporary design. I love the dual function of these candlesticks, which can be used to accommodate different candle sizes.

4.) Anticipate

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

Michael Musser is personal friend of mine from college, and he owns Anticipate, an Etsy shop that sells unused vintage stamps and cool map envelope liners. These are great to add to any stationary collection. Michael also owns Anticipate Invitations, which has been featured in all the major wedding blogs. He’s such a talented designer – check out his website!

5.) Thomas Houha Designs

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

Thomas Houha Designs creates these intricate 3D model kits that are not only fun to put together, they would look amazing on any mantle.

6.) Piece of History

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

Guys, these are Zion’s Action Figures, and if you care for me at all, you will get these for me for Chanukah. Can’t get me all of them? I’ll settle for Golda Meir. Thank you Piece of History! These are awesome.

7.) Little Goodall

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

Little Goodall offers handmade animal coats, and they are just beyond adorable. But y’all, the jacket shown above is for adults. What a time to be alive!

8.) MaryLou Bangkok

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

These rings. I can’t. I just need them all. I love this fox, but in particular I’m head over heels for the sloth, which I can’t see in her shop right now. MaryLou Bangkok accessories are just beyond.

9.) Marcella Moda

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

Doesn’t this scarf look divine? Marcella Moda offers a lot of beautiful minimalist, layer-able pieces for cold weather, but these scarves are delicious.

10.) holli

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

I happened upon the holli shop by accident, but was delighted by the prints I found. There are several sweet prints perfect for any nursery or child’s room. In particular, this Narwhal won my heart.

11.) Mini Camp It

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

If I had a girl, Mini Camp It would be my first stop. My son has a teepee that he loves, but this one with the fringes is so adorable.

12.) Clover + Birch

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

Clover + Birch features many beautiful wooden toys, including wooden baby gyms, but I think my little one would get quite a kick out of this Balance Board!

13.) Wooden Caterpillar

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

Speaking of wooden toys, Wooden Caterpillar brought me straight back to my childhood. So many farm animals and woodland creatures to keep your toddler occupied for hours. As always, I’m partial to the giraffes.

14.) Fluffmonger

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

This Fluffmonger maker is located in North Carolina, and only uses ethically sourced organic cotton to make her squeal-worthy stuffed creations like this Penguin. There are a variety of other hoodie-clad animals, and some even come with books!

15.) Zooble

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

Zooble makes peg dolls, and some of them are even Chanukah themed! This royal family captured my imagination, and all the peg dolls are great for imaginative play.

16.) Boca Baby Company

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

Need some baby bling? Boca Baby Company is the place to go! This maker also offers customizable gifts with your child’s name on it.

17.) Lil Tulip

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

Lil Tulip makes the most darling baby quilts that take on a true heirloom feel. Pillows and stockings are also available.

18.) Isralove

The Ultimate Etsy Chanukah Gift Guide

I’ve written about Isralove in the past, and I wanted to highlight this Etsy shop again. Aren’t these booties the best?

If I’ve been communicating with you and didn’t highlight your Etsy store, don’t fret. I’ll be doing regular Etsy gift guides throughout the year, so stay tuned!

    Love these. Have some close Jewish friends and I’d love to get them a gift this year. The menorah is perfect!

  2. My Daily She says

    Oh my goodness…you have amazing style. I’m loving the ceramics–and the 3D model kits for my little builders!

  3. Lauren DiPego Plotkin says

    These are all great picks, mama! I especially love the teepee and quilt. I’m always looking for ideas since we celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah!
