ETSY.  It’s my favourite. My forever favourite. I’m not even exaggerating. Wait. Do you know me?

Porcelain gingerbread    |   Wool Blanket   |    Edison Light Fixture

Michael asked me if I was going to be doing my holiday shopping on Etsy again this year. He recalled the time he checked our online bank balance and I not-so-innocently handed him a spiked coffee.   I do all my shopping online.  WHY?! Because shopping in a mall is like swimming in the sea and getting hit in the face with a jelly fish.

Duly noted.  Me no like.

Online shopping is the yin to my yang.

ETSY is my spirit animal.

There are exactly fourteen thousand one hundred sixty three shopping choices slash gift guides out there today, so I’m just going to cut to the chase and show you theeeeee best finds on Etsy.  You’re welcome.

Get ready to SHOP! <–I’m not yelling at you.  Yes I am.  LESGO.

50 best finds on ETSY + $500 giveaway via @lynneknowlton @etsy. Enter to win!! You got this!!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14


Theeee best finds on ETSY

1.    I want this *stomps foot*

2.     I’m so obsessed with this ring. I don’t have one, but I’d like one. Hint hint….hint?

3.    I can’t get over this colour. Will you buy me 48493730958 of them?

4.    When I spotted these amazing marble coasters, and ooooh these ones… I believe I may have screamed.

5.    Check out this moroccan rug.  I practically had to breathe into a paper bag.  It’s a splurge for sure.  You’re welcome to gift it to me, if you want. I will NOT be mad at you.

6.    Man, I love white candles. Any candle called aaaaamazing, must be amazing.

7.    Raise your hand if you’ve eaten cheese & crackers (and wine ) for dinner. Let’s be real, you may have found yourself in an elbow-deep cheese situation.  You totally need this cutting board.  It’s also not terrible for you, because hey…cheese and WINE.  Justification all around.

8.     Gimme this stamp. Right now. It’s stampilicious.

9.        It’s holiday time. Good things come in trees.

10.      It’s called a POUF because paradise was taken.

11.      Oh you pretty thing.

12.      I ordered some of this merino wool so expect to see it used in about fifty billion more projects.  It’s in these chunky wool blanket patterns here and here.   Ooooo, and I ordered this one too.  Socks and blankets are my bliss.  Merino wool is my dope.

13.      I don’t own these gold & white pillows. Yet. *Sniff sniff*  A girl can dream.

14.     You can’t EVAR have too many of these.

15.      Hello.  This would make your camera look totally on fleek.

16.      I’m like, next-level obsessed with these washcloths.

17.      Slow down go go gadget.  You’re too cool for school.

18.      The branding on this linen set is sooooooo gorgeous for gift giving.  How’d they do that so fabulously?  Did I mention that I hate them?  Let’s punch them in the face.  PS. I ADORE THEM.

19.      Wash your pits and naughty bits.  SOAK.

20.      Lose yourself in napping heaven.  Please return if found.

21.       I must sound like a doof, but I honestly didn’t know this kind of mural even existed.  LOVE.

22.     I have a secret. I love these. Please don’t punch me in the shins. I just feel like they would make any Christmas tree so very happy.

23.     I’m like… wait a minute…. two of my favourite things… coffee mugs …coffee…kind of combined. I’m dead.  PS.  This mug is HILARE.

24.     I don’t like morning people. Or mornings.  Thankfully, coffee gives me unrealistic expectations of productivity.  I own this mug. I’d marry it if I could.

25.     These concrete thing-a-ma-jingies.  Adorbs.

26.    Whoa.  How are these even REAL?

27.   It would be totally awesome if someone could deliver this cake to my face right now.   Cake stand included.  Please and thank you.

28.    This is quite possibly the most trashed up thing you’ll see this side of Christmas.  But I want it.  Judge me.

29.    I have the street smarts and survival skills of a poodle but somehow I think I could survive if I was wearing this.

30.   I can’t. Even.  See you never.

31.   I kid you not. Best thing ever.

32.   You’re a nutter.

33.  Do you think this will make me look classy and refined in the kitchen?  Don’t answer that.  I just made cookies for dinner so take my words with a grain of salt.

PS.  Didja know that we have the teeniest weeniest polka dot bikiniest Etsy shop?  It’s here.

PS.sss.sss.  Here's a round up of all the featured ETSY faves in one spot.

Now go buy some presents { for yourself } <– who said that? Me.

I hate presents. Said no one ever.

    Lynne could you please tell me, what was the weight of the super chunky yarn , that you purchased from the wool couture company to make your beautiful blanket.

    • Hi Cherry! The weight that I used is 200G weight of the merino wool. Then I doubled the yarn. I believe I used 8-10 skeins.

      Hope that helps!

      PS. If you search the word ‘knit’ in the upper right search bar of my blog, you’ll find a couple of free knitting patterns for a chunky wool blanket and for making tassels too. xx

    Fantastic list! I looove Etsy and those stamps are EVERYTHING. Actually, the whole list is everything but I keep telling myself to calm down after my latest Etsy rampage (it would be WRONG not to have felt ball garlands, right?).

  53. Kathleen says:


    Etsy is the best shopping experience EVER! I have never been disappointed by anything that I’ve purchased on Etsy.
    Love your blog and Instagram feed!

  64. Heather S says:

    Wooo hooo! Such a RAD giveaway! xoxo
    entered on insta too 🙂

  65. Crocetta Sikorski says:

    I’m not even going to wait to throw around hints about wanting the DIY shawl knitting kit for Christmas. I’m going to buy one for myself as soon as I’m done here! The beauty of this gift idea is that you’re challenging yourself to learn something new and once totally immersed in the knitting, it becomes therapeutic, like a kind of meditation. So cool..

  66. Leigh says:

    I love your ideas, your blog and your photographs. MOST of all, your sense of humor. You make everyone feel like your best friend and that you’re “talking” just to them.. Thank you.


    your blog always makes me smile. thanks for being awesome and for the giveaway.
    i love shopping from etsy, no matter what time of year it is!

  68. Gail says:

    It’s always fun to receive your e-mail!
    Although it’s pretty disappointing to continuously see this one dedicated to “Christmas Gifts”.
    Where is the recognition that gift giving is a diverse act of kindness for all people?

    • Hi Gail,

      I DO believe in gift giving as a diverse act of kindness for all people, and throughout the year. I believe in the gift of presents, presence, the gift of love and kindness, the gift of being good to one another. There are no time limits… just a time limit on the contest announcement 🙂


  69. Melissa Moore says:

    I have three joys and just had a baby girl 3 months ago. I’ve spent snuck money on Etsy since she’s been born. Probably more then my boys put together.

  70. Felecia says:

    I love handmade items. Etsy is so fun to browse, and you have found some treasures. Thanks for doing the giveaway.

  71. SheilaC says:

    Thank you for the great give away. I LOVE shopping on ETSY!

  72. deneen says:

    you just killed my productivity – down the Etsy rabbit hole.

  73. Amy Orvin says:

    I love to shop at Etsy! There are so many adorable things there.

  74. Heather Pitcher says:

    Such a great post! So many ideas to for Christmas shopping!!! Thanks Lynne for Keeping it real, always an inspiration ❤️

  75. Kim Beaulieu says:

    Dude, can I tell you a secret? You sure? Pinkie swear it’s just between me and you….

    I’ve never shopped on Etsy.

    *ducks for cover*

    I know, I know. It’s sad. But I rarely shop, period. So, I’m entering this in the hopes I can shop till I drop. Or shop till my bum hurts from sitting on the couch buying prezzies for people. Oh, who am I kidding, it would all be for ME!!!

    We bought the white ceiling paint you recommended. It goes on the ceiling (hopefully) tomorrow. Yeah for a new blog room. Grey walls, white ceiling, lots of country style furniture and rustic charm. Plus pretty curtains I bought in summer when this was just a possibility.

    • I hope you are ducking hard Kim… hahha…. and I hope that you can shop from the couch like a boss. Etsy will change your life. haha. No really. I do almost all my shopping online now… game changer of a lurve ball.

      PS. Can’t wait to hear more about your new blogging space!!! I bet it will be d’bomb dot com.


  76. Tracy says:

    It’s like you are my Etsy soul-mate.

  77. Sherry says:

    Hey, Lynne,
    653 thanks for this amazing list! I know, Etsy is my jam, too. My marmalade, even. And I really, really like marmalade. (Got any marmalade in that gift list of yours …?)
    Ciao bella! Comfort and joy to you.

  78. Carla says:

    Is it wrong to spend my entire gift budget on myself?

  79. Cindy A. says:

    I recently cleaned out my storage building and am planning on reopening my Etsy shop. I have a lot of fun vintage purses to list.

  80. Hannah Mallery says:

    You always post so much drool-worthy gorgeousness. I think with $100 I’d have to probably get some fabrics I’ve had my eye on…

    • Now that is something I haven’t looked at on Etsy, Hannah! Good to know!! I was so busy drooling at stationary, stamps, rugs and pillows I forgot that other wild things could be found too. Woot!

      Lynne xx

  81. Analisa says:

    Lynne, you are hilarious, I love your blog. And your FONT. This is gorgeous! Thank you

    • Thanks Analisa!

      This font is fun huh? It’s called ARCHITECTS DAUGHTER. I’ve been using it on my blog for 4 years, and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t love it. You have great taste 🙂 xx

  82. Paige says:

    Etsy is my crack. I have to set a time limit on how long I can be on there… Pinterest too! Adore you Lynne!

  83. Dana Woolliams says:

    I’ve fallen in love with a batter bowl on etsy. I love etsy.

  84. Shannon says:

    I, too, am an Etsy addicted junkie……(in my best loud and proud voice)!
    Thank YOU for the giveaway!

  85. Jennifer says:

    I would love to win this contest! Despite spending an obscene amount of time on Etsy I have yet to pull the trigger and buy anything. Unbelievable I know! I’m afraid once I start I won’t be able to stop!!! That’s a lot of exclamation points…

    • Been there, done that, got the poster Jennifer… and I have to say that it ended well. I shot out of my chair with glee when I received my first Etsy purchases. One of the things I love about Etsy sellers is how much care they take in branding/packaging up their goods.

      Look up PiloSale on Etsy (she’s number 16 in the list) When her goods arrive they are GORGEOUS. I loved her packaging as much as the items. She has stunning linen tea towels, wooden cut out ornaments, linen make up bags, linen heaven. I love it all!

      Lynne xx

  86. Sara C says:

    Got hooked on your site after an awesome afghan knitting pattern. Love it!! Wishing happy holidays and love the giveaway. I’ve always wanted to shop on etsy!

  87. Katie Ringler says:

    When you have but one shopping mall in town, ETSY makes one’s life so much more bearable. When you have but one Lynne Knowlton, it makes one’s life so much happier.

  88. Patricia Leslie says:

    I adore your Blog and style! Your sense of humour is refeshing and SUPER fun! Many you find great comfort and happiness in the holiday season!

  89. Cathy says:

    Etsy has beautiful things! I’m loving your blog, too!

  90. Dawn says:

    Love this font, your Etsy list, your writing style, your newsletter, and seeing pictures of the bunkie :-). Hope all is well with your family, especially your hubby. Thanks for your generosity in having this contest!

    • Thanks for the LOVE Dawn! SMOOCH. Double smooch for mentioning my Friday newsletter. I decided that since I’m really busy, I should compound the pressure on myself and add a Friday newsletter into my (previously non existent) editorial calendar.

      So it is worffff it? yay!!!!!!!!

      Glad you like it. It may drive me to drink. Who said that? haha.

      Lynne xx

  91. Katt Lewis says:

    I love etsy! Hope to be doing some shopping there this year.

  92. Kerry Phillips says:

    I looooove to shop on Etsy!!! Your style is gorgeous!!! Mahalo for a chance to win such awesome prizes!!!

  93. Liberty says:

    Oh. My heart. All dem snowflakes, tho. I need to round up some non-Canadian wooden snowflakes from Etsy to add to my wishlist. (No offense to Canadian wooden snowflakes, but shipping ’em here might be expensive.)

    Thanks for curating this oh-so-lovely list!

    • Hi Liberty!

      Where do you live? I love love love hearing about where people live // which part of the world // what their home life looks like. WAIT. How cool of a blog post would that be? Hmmmm. Thinking cap on.

      Lynne xx

  94. Tania says:

    Winning this would suck, because HOW? HOW would I decide which of all that deliciousness to partake in?

    I would struggle through, though. For you.

  95. Vicki L says:

    My evening turned into demo day of leftover Halloween chocolate bars – that may or may not have been hidden so the trick or treaters would not get rotten teeth – I’m trying to help here! I got lost in Etsy – a present for my sister and one for me! Never leave yourself out, I say, with my mouth full of ooey-gooey chocolate goodness! Ooh I have discovered a new shopping world through Etsy, from the – I can’t wait for a new entry on Lynn’s blog! Yay!!

  96. Lisa A. says:

    Wow! Awesome! I, too, love Etsy. So many talented folks out there. Great gifting ideas! Love your blog & your personality. Your energy is fantastic! 🙂 Keep doing what you’re doing! Cheers from Nova Scotia!

  97. Eugene Aberdine says:

    You are so danged funny I forgot to laugh

  98. Susan Hayden says:

    Lynne, thanks for the humorous hyperbole scattered throughout your blog! Don’t know how you can keep coming up with it. DId your knitting mother teach you that too? 🙂

  99. Audrey L. says:

    You’re awesome Lynne! But of course you know that already! ?

  100. Tara Smith says:

    I maybe go on Etsy every day to look at Wonder Woman bracelets. I need these. For fashion, and for crime fighting.

  101. Debo says:

    Must have Edison light fixture! Love your IG pics!

  102. Michele Blair says:

    You remind me of my great friend, Christen. We say and do crazy things when we get together….. .laughing till our cheeks explode. We’re separated by (s)miles. I miss that kind of crazy……….thanks for the reminder. Keep on keepin’ on Miss Lynne. You’re kickin’ it!!

    p.s. been etsy-ing for years. Love. Love. Love.

  103. Janet G says:

    G’day Lynne
    Love your wish list, it made me laugh and smile on a day of blah ness.
    Love and adore (here take all my money) Etsy, I honestly could shop until I dropped on line in my jammies all day and even then I’d crawl back to the screen and do some more.
    My list is full of fabric, threads, beads, and all the embroidery sparkles I can find. As a mad (passionate) stitcher I have a stash that will seriously get me through the zombie apocalypse 😉
    Did you know threads and fabric are soooo easy to stash? Just don’t put them in boots or pockets they get discovered hahaha.
    I’d love to stitch your tree house, it is so inspirational every time I look at the pics. Hugs xx

  104. Etsy gift cards have become my go to “thank you” prezzie. I mean who doesn’t love Etsy?!

  105. sheila prescott says:

    Thanks for the invite! I love your site, learning to knit thanks to you.
    Happy turkey day! Gobble-gobble??

  106. Dawn says:

    Thanks for feeding the addiction! Love everything!

  107. farmkiti says:

    OMG, I’m so excited! I entered the contest and I just KNOW I’m gonna win!!!

    I luuuuuv shopping online. I never go to stores anymore, except for groceries. And I hear now you can even buy those online. That’s next.

    The nice thing about shopping online is you can do it without your hubby noticing. If you’re always on the computer, it’s no big deal. My computer even knows my credit card number! No dragging out the wallet.

    And shopping on Etsy is the best. They have anything you want, plus LOTS of stuff you didn’t even know you wanted. Seriously.

    OK,, I’m going back online to shop some more now. Bye!

  108. Tammy says:

    Woohoo! Love love love it.?

    And I love getting your email every Friday byw !

    • Hi Philippine…

      Oh my heart strings were pulled. I know exactly how you feel. We moved from Canada to France for two years, and although Paris is GORGEOUS, it may have been the loneliest time of my life. I wish I knew about Etsy annnnnnnd blogging back then. Ha. That could have solved a few problems 🙂

      Big love and wishing you beautiful handmade beauty… smiles… love… and virtual hugs across the interwebs.

      Lynne xx

        Hi Lynne!
        Yeah being abroad on your own is really lonely… But as they say everything will je alright
        It’s also also kind of stressful here, which is something I realised really affected me because I’ve lost 1/3 of my hair since I’ve been in Spain… And Etsy is amazing but on a student’s budget it mostly is making me drool on my screen wishing I was a millionaire!
        Thanks for the hug 🙂
        Lots of love from a lonely French girl in Spain

    I’m tired of talking to myself anyway. Let’s chin wag

  127. Well that was a fun Etsy vortex I just got sucked into! Problem is now I want to change my decor and make my house all WHITE. Hubby looks a little nervous!

  128. Kathrine Iacofano says:

  135. Tammy says:

    Etsy is my spirit animal too! I always think “Oh I can make that” Then I never do…I guess I better shop instead.

There’s this fantastic antique Mexican serape that would make MY chair just sing, but it’s not in the budget….this would make it happen!! Love getting your stuff…makes me laugh and puts my design mode on “go”, so YES, I’d love to win this great give-away! Have a fabulous Thanksgiving…..don’t eat too much.

  151. Lori says:

    Hey Lynne!
    I’m new to your blog and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! You have already made me laugh right out loud (awkward, since I was reading it at work when I was supposed to be working!)….. you’ve made me cry (my much-loved brother-in-law is going through chemotherapy and radiation right now)….. you’ve given me that excited jittery feeling you get when you see a photo of something sensational that rocks your world — and you just KNOW will look great in the house you have just completely “demo-dayed” (weeeeee!!)….. and your lovable, quirky randomness has inspired me to let loose and allow my crazy inner voice be heard in the things I write!

    I’ve drooled over ETSY for more hours than I care to admit, and have yet to make a single purchase! Whaaaaat??

    I live in Niagara (ON) and am sooooo planning on checking out your treehouse! I’m secretly thinking it might make a phenomenal place for my S.O. and I to bring my sister and aforementioned brother-in-law for some serious soul-feeding, wine-drinking (no spilling on the white furniture!), laugh-inducing, decor-inspiring, family-bonding wonderfulness. Ahhhhhh…..

    Anyhoo — whew! — all that to say THANK YOU for being you, and for bringing your voice, talent, humour and vulnerability to the blogosphere! xoxo

  152. West Coast Nan says:

    Wow, great choices Lynne, everything I love – all in one place! Thanks for thinking of me when you curated this…

  153. Loretta Chow says:

    I love Esty Home!!! The style is so clean, simple and refreshing – perfect pieces for any home.

    Also loved your blanket and made one myself! Now my daughter is making one as well!!

  171. Nikki brown says:

    Love this!!! ❤️

  172. Robyn says:

    Hooray! Let’s do this! One day, when I stay at the tree house, we’ll be lounging on something that is most likely white, and I’ll be super worried about spilling what will probably be an inappropriately full glass of red wine, and I’ll be like, “remember that time you made an Etsy list, and I spent all my money, and we became best friends?”, and you’ll give me well earned side eye for sounding like a crazy person, and then we’ll admire my flower ring.

    • I, legit, ROFLing… just reading your words, Robyn! How about this… we can sit on the white hammock, and throw water balloons off the porch to anyone who dares to come up the treehouse steps without knowing the treehouse club password. Girls club only. haha. PS. Should we make the password W.I.N.E. ?

  173. Kathy Ryder says:

    Mall shopping is so last decade! I love shopping on Etsy; it’s the best for finding unique gifts and for supporting talented people.

  174. Jeanne says:

    I’ve just lost 2 hrs this morning to Etsy and I don’t even care. The malls could burn to the ground and I’d be fine. Thank you for this giveaway?.

  175. Jan says:

    Every year I VOW to get online early and do my Christmas shopping and EVERY year I’m that last minute shopper at the mall. GAH!!!
