My favourite artists/makers/shops to buy from if you're looking for gifts πŸŽ„πŸŽ

Great request, @solena! The holidays are a really important time to support makers and local shops and make sure they can afford to stay open next year.

    Hannah Zakari -
    Edinburgh based shop that does a great job of curating all the best indie designers from around the world. Always good for inspiration.

    Present and Correct -
    For stationery nerds. Perfect for people who are impossible to buy for.

    Hey Chickadee -
    Home of Pusheen! And other cool artists. Did you know Pusheen is my boss? I do web stuff for her and she sends me Christmas presents 🎁

    My friend Jen's amazing ceramics collaboration. If she was still in Scotland I would buy them for everyone but she's in Canada just now.

    Yoyo the Ricecorpse -
    She mostly makes animations using photography and illustration but also sells zines, pins, clothing and more.

    Everything he makes is awesome but zines in particular are a great value way to introduce friends to new artists.

    Of course. Look at these new pins! Fun fact: Susie's shop is the 14th Etsy shop I ever favourited back in 2007! And yet I don't own anything myself as I always just buy gifts 😭

    Lovely hand printed Japanese towels, blankets and more.

    Woah There Pickle -
    Hand printed lino cuts. I love the manhole cover and coin series - great gifts for travelers.

    Tasty Peach Studios -
    Adorable plush toys, clothing, stationery etc. Everyone needs a Meowchi (or okay there are puppies now too)

    The Pink Samurai -
    Cats! Magical glitter Christmas tree cats!

    M.Autio -
    Don't go here if you like stickers. They have thousands and they're all quite cheap with affordable shipping and you'll never resist. This guy is one of my favourites.

    Tofu Cute -
    Everything kawaii from a little pink shop in Portsmouth. They only sell authentic licensed Japanese products and snacks unlike a lot bigger sites plus they have a lot of affordable little things for stocking fillers.

    Obviously there are loads more and I might add to this later when I realise what I forgot to include.
