Gift Guide 2011: Only Handmade


Gift Ideas for My Sister: when the Etsy team invited me to curate a special gift guide, I immediately thought of my sister. We don’t see each other very often but we are getting together for Christmas this year. There is no way to properly show how much I love, respect and cherish her — but 25 presents are a good start. Here are some ideas for my sister and yours, organized by room…. Of course I have added this selection and 20 more handmade favorites to the Bloesem Gift Guide 2011 under the Only Handmade Category… Here’s to a wonderful family Christmas!
