We are officially into December… time to really start putting on those holiday pants (remember that episode of Friends where Phoebe wears Santa pants as “maternity” pants? Man that cracks me up. I also wish I had a pair…).

I have teamed up with some of my fellow Ottawa bloggers to bring you a ’613 holiday special’ series (613 is the Ottawa area code – ottawa gals up in the house!). Every Monday in December we’re going to be jointly posting according to a theme, and today is all about gifts.

Have you started doing any shopping or crafting yet? Well, you know I’m one for handmade gifts, but that doesn’t mean that they always have to be handmade by me. Enter etsy. If you’re not able to get out to your local craft shows, etsy is the perfect spot to order handmade items from sellers across the world. It doesn’t get much sweeter than these as Christmas pressies.

For her - I have been totally crushing on these items lately. I don’t know about you, but I would be thrilled to be gifted any of these beauties. From jewellery to scarves (you know I had to throw a few in, right? i’m obsessed), to knitted goods, bags, and more… there is just so. much. pretty.

For him - I don’t really love the whole “for him/for her” separation, as I would like a lot of these more masculine gifts too (that wooden phone dock is so gorge!). But anyway… here they are!

And for the littles. These are definitely the most fun!

So many great options, right?

613 holiday special

Now join us five Ottawa bloggers as we set our tables, deck our halls & try to survive the holiday season with style & cheer. Grab your eggnog and toast to the season with us every Monday until Dec 23rd. Happy Holidays!

    Lovely curration! Esp. like the scarves. Etsy is such a “go to” place for me – whenver I need something and I know it can be crafted… I’m online in a heartbeat!

      I feel totally the same way, Katherine! It’s my first go-to spot.
