One aspect I love about Etsy is that most sellers take extra time to prep their products for shipping. They put them in cute boxes, tuck them into colorful tissue paper or packing envelopes, and finish them off with a pretty bit of string. Often, you even find an extra surprise, like a sweet treat, tucked in there, as well.

These little touches, besides the fact that I'm supporting small businesses, are one reason I love turning to Etsy for gifts, especially ones that I'm going to ship. There's no fear of my recipient getting a gift randomly thrown into a box with bubble wrap. Plus, if it's coming to me to pass along, half my wrapping job is already done.

I scrolled through Etsy to find my favorite picks for all the moms in our lives and discovered plenty of heartfelt and creative ideas you'll love giving as much as she'll love receiving.

Move over, birthstones, we're embracing birth flowers this season. These elegant necklaces come in a variety of lengths and chain types so you can personalize it exactly to her style. Choose her month or add extra charms for all her kids' birthdays.
