Etsy is the online equivalent of attending an arts & crafts fair — you can shop dozens of retailers selling unique, handmade goods and thrifted finds without ever leaving the couch. Founded in 2005, makers and collectors have used the platform to sell everything from art prints to vintage suitcases for nearly 20 years. Etsy is great for sourcing art for your home or holiday shopping. You can also find craft supplies, crochet and sewing patterns and handmade costumes.

Feel free to get weird with it: fried egg earrings? That’s on Etsy. Sardine peel-and-stick wallpaper to complement your recent tinned fish obsession? Your walls are as good as covered. An obstacle course for your cat? Only the finest pet furniture for your best friend.

If you can dream it, you can probably find it on Etsy. Browse our favorite Etsy shops and product picks, and find the perfect gift for you or a loved one.
