How to find perfect presents on Etsy

Finding the perfect gift can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack! With more than 35 million things for sale on Etsy, how do you find the right thing?

Of course, if you know what you’re looking for, just be as specific as possible when you search for products.

The fun begins when you don’t know what you’re looking for, or just need inspiration.

Etsy’s categories along the top can help narrow things down for you. Home & Living is our most-searched category for interior products. Within that category, you’ll also find a section called Editor’s Picks, which narrows down current interiors trends and products that tie in with that. With careful searching, we’ve turned up some amazing interiors finds.

We’ve done the browsing for you, and hand-picked some homes and interiors treasures to appeal to even the choosiest person on your gift list.

What is Etsy?

New to Etsy? It’s more than an online marketplace. Etsy is like a shopping ecosystem, made up of creative microbusinesses – mainly smaller, independent makers, crafting beautiful things from their home workshops. Creative entrepreneurs can sell globally or locally on Etsy to thoughtful buyers like you.

It’s truly global – you can buy products via Etsy from all over the world, including handmade creations and unique vintage treasures.

You’ll find products that are meaningful and affordable. They’re often handmade and made in small quantities. So for everyone who likes to support independent makers and sellers, Etsy is a great place to look for interesting and unique gifts.

How to buy from Etsy

Just sign up for an Etsy account – this gives you access to the Favourites button. A little heart on the top of your home page lets you store products and sellers that catch your eye. As you begin to “heart” products you love, your Etsy homepage will evolve to show a product feed tailored to your favourites, featuring other similar products you might like.
