All Things Sassy :: Handmade Holiday Gift Guide {one-of-a-kind fused glass art | Knoxville, TN}

It's been a bit since the last Handmade Holiday Gift Guide post, but I am back on track now and you can expect lots of great handmade gift ideas to come your way over the next month until Christmas.  Most of the items I will be featuring are created by Etsy sellers in my own community of Knoxville, Tennessee because I really think it is important to shop local whenever you can.  We have a growing collective of Etsy sellers on our Knoxville Creative Hands Street Team offering a wide range of hand-crafted goodies and you can find out more about them here.

Holiday Tip #2 :: It's a well-known fact that some folks are harder to shop for than others, but it is less difficult if that person shops on Etsy.  Most Etsy users have a bunch of items and/or sellers marked as "favorites" and you can view their favorites from their profile. So next time you are looking to get a unique gift for that hard-to-shop-for person on your list, just check their profile or ask them to share their list with you.

Gift Suggestion #2 :: Gorgeous quilted batik bags from Hamncheezr. Here is an example of the wonderful fabric goodies offered. Click here to visit Hamncheezr's Etsy shop.

Grab a cup of coffee and browse Hamncheezr's Etsy shop, you'll be sure to find something perfect for someone on your shopping list or maybe even yourself!

All Things Sassy :: Handmade Holiday Gift Guide {one-of-a-kind fused glass art | Knoxville, TN}

Did you wake up Sunday morning fully rested and thankful for an extra hour of sleep only to realize it was the first day of November and you haven't even thought about Christmas shopping?  Don't worry, you aren't alone.  Lots of folks wait until Thanksgiving to begin their holiday hunting for the perfect gift, but more often than not that just leads to poor gift choices and too much stress.  Does the thought of wading through a sea of shoppers at a bog box store or mall make you light-headed?  Do you end up buying even your closest friends a bath and body collection because you can't find the perfect gift?  How about if I made it easy for you to find the item your gift recipient will recall as the "best gift ever"? 

The secret is to shop handmade and I will be sharing some fabulous gift suggestions and holiday tips with you over the next few weeks.  The featured items will be hand-crafted by Knoxville area artists and craftspeople in a wide range of prices so you will have no trouble finding something for everyone on your list. Psst...Santa you might want to pay attention too!

Tip #1 :: Stop by the Knoxville Creative Hands Street Team Holiday Show & Sale at West Town Mall on Saturday, November 7th from 10am to 9pm.  Over 40 local Etsy (your place to buy and sell handmade) will be represented at this event.  Lots of wonderful items will be available.  For a complete list of the participants click here.

Gift Suggestion #1 :: Delicious soy candles from Buzzabee.  Here is a sample of the wonderful candles offered.  Click here to visit Buzzabee's Etsy shop.
