My Etsy Picks for Christmas: Presents for Teen Boys

Teen boys can be a bit tricky when it comes to presents. It’s hard to find something that ticks all the right cool, fun and original boxes. Hopefully my round-up of the best Etsy buys will help, including a skinny knit tie, creepy/cool chalkboard skull and a little something for Big Bang Theory fans.

Now is the time to order all your presents from Etsy if you want them in time for Christmas, so hop to it!

Head over here for all of my Etsy Christmas present guides. Do you have an awesome present idea for teen boys?

My Etsy Picks for Christmas: Presents for Teen Girls

Hmmm, this could very well be my own wishlist, so perhaps I’m projecting my inner-teen just a tad. But I really do love all of things I’ve cherry-picked in this wee collection of original presents for teenage girls. From the bargain confetti nail polish to the candy-print leggings, there’s a whole lot of handmade gorgeousness to love. Click through on the image to see the full list.

Now is the time to order all your presents from Etsy if you want them in time for Christmas, so hop to it!

Xmas presents to order now from Etsy: Rose gold

I’m back – and just in time too! Suddenly it’s November 18 and Christmas is scarily just around the corner. This time of the year always snowballs for me, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels like they can’t keep up.

I feel I need to apologise for being kinda quiet on Wee Birdy this year. We had a few unexpected hurdles and life with my wee toddler man has taken precedence. I’ve also been editing the Craft section for Tuts+, and just a few weeks ago we up and sold our wee flat! And we’ve just bought a house … in the bush!

We move in just before Christmas, and in the meantime I’m a tad frantic with renovation plans and packing and moving.

But I couldn’t miss my favourite part of the Wee Birdy calendar – my annual Christmas present guides. I’ve been cherry-picking my favourite buys for the past few months, and I was super-chuffed when the lovely Etsy folks came a-knocking, asking me to put together my favourite Etsy picks for the brand new Wee Birdy Etsy page.

I can’t wait to share all favourite Etsy discoveries with you over the next week in my annual Christmas present guide.

For starters, I’ve chosen rose-gold as one of this year’s hottest trends for my present guide. Just click on the image above to check out all of my picks on Etsy. Let me know what you think!

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts. X

12 more beautiful baby presents, from £2.72

I’m on a bit of a roll with baby presents right now, and I thought you might like to see the rest of my pastel-hued favourites. Most of these presents I’ve sourced from Etsy, which is actually one of the best online shopping destinations for baby gifts.

Prices start at £2.72 – if you knit the nappy cover yourself! I’ve thrown in the odd bright present because pastels mixed with brights is bang on-trend right now. So if you’re after a contemporary nursery, add a splash of yellow or red to your pastel mix.

My favourite present? Definitely the hand-knitted personalised dolly rattles (no. 2) by Chickabiddy, via Etsy. I’ve given many a sock doll rattle to my friends’ new babies. They make such a sweet little present and a nice little keepsake.

Top 12 affordable art prints for babies and kids

Decorating a child’s room can feel a tad overwhelming when there are so many options available. And let’s not even mention wave of confusion – and sensory overload, once you start wading through Pinterest. If you’re not quite brave to go down the wallpaper route, you might want to consider a collection of beautiful art prints. It’s a certainly more flexible and affordable option for adding colour, detail and interest – and prints are perfect for renters.

But where to start? I’ve curated my top 12 favourite art prints, which would make wonderfully vibrant additions to any child’s room.
