American Made Gift Ideas | Supporting the Local Elves

Last year, I ran a Guest Pinterest Board Blog Series with top industry landscape designers, gardeners and like-minded bloggers.  Each guest pinner had one week to pin their favorite gift ideas for gardeners to my Garden Guest Pinterest Board.

This was a great way to share gifts for gardeners to a larger audience and also a way to showcase the guests themselves.

See More about last year's Guest Pinners here:
Clockwise:  Bruce Bailey, Katie Ketelsen, Pam Penick, and Nancy Wallace 

This time around, I decided to showcase American makers that have inspired me throughout the year.  To start, I have decided to kick off the fun with pinning gift ideas from Etsy myself this week! If you are not familiar with Etsy, it is a marketplace where people connect to buy and sell unique, handcrafted goods.  

I love finding one-of-a-kind gifts on Etsy for weddings, birthdays and Christmas.  I have my own Etsy page, however, I do not utilize it as much as I should.  Maybe after a week of pinning, I will get re-inspired! 

Sometimes, it is difficult to 'Shop Local', however, Etsy offers a fantastic platform to shop for those unique gifts while also supporting creative minds and entrepreneurs here in the United States.

I will announce our new Guest Pinner each Monday, beginning on November 17th. They will have the opportunity to pin items that they love and suggest great holiday gift items to my followers for the entire week.  Stay tuned!  It's going to be a fun time leading up to Christmas and the New Year!  

Here are a few of my pins…
