7 of the best pride finds on etsy

It’s no secret that Etsy is full of incredibly talented artists, makers, and curators, and on this last week of Pride Month, I’ve assembled some of my favorite pride finds and items from LGBTQ+ sellers. Enjoy!

Love is love is love is love! I adore this super happy card from SayItOutProud!


Lex and Voula are the self-proclaimed “artists and troublemakers” behind WildFancyDesign. They have some awesome LGBTQ+ jewelry and accessories available, and I also love their gorgeous Rise Up moon enamel pin.


I do have to admit that there was a slightly terrifying audible squeal when I came across the work of lollipopworkshop. These custom wedding cake toppers are incredibly precious, totally customizable, a super sweet keepsake to display after the reception, and you can even include your furry friends!


BiancaDesignsCo is filled with the cuuutest gifts, including pins, hats, and stickers. I especially love this The Future Is Inclusive Tote. Bianca, the queer artist behind the shop, says “Representation, inclusivity and support are important to me in design and within our communities. Each month I give 50% of proceeds from "Love Knows No Gender" to a LGBTQ+ foundation”.


BuffaloLucy’s metal work is absolutely stunning, and made with “recycled metals and materials whenever possible”. I especially love this sweet bee necklace. Bonus: for the month of June 10% of profits will be going to the Transgender Law Center.


This rainbow heart doormat from NickelDesignsShop is so fun, and will provide a bright and loving welcome into your home.


Last, but not least.. don’t forget to let your pup show some pride, too, with this rainbow glitter bowtie by PupTartHandmade. (Bonus: 15% of each sale goes to the London Friend charity who are helping create a friendly and equal environment for all LGBTQ+ people.)

10 of the best father's day gifts on etsy

Etsy is a GOLD MINE for unique gifts. Guys always seem to be the hardest people to buy for, but luckily, I’ve rounded up 10 of the best items on Etsy, so you can get all of your Father’s Day shopping done without any of the stress!

If Dad is a techy kind of guy, he’ll love this wooden docking station where he can put his phone, watch, glasses, keys, and wallet at the end of every day. Plus, you can personalize it with his initials for no extra charge!


For the dad who is also a coach, or just a massive sports fan.. how cool are these baseball keychains from ManyBeadsOfSedona? All his buddies will be jealous - guaranteed.


Now THIS is a gift that is guaranteed to get a great reaction! The classic DAD heart tattoo from happytatts is perfect for creating an incredible memory / photo op that will last a lifetime!


I’m totally getting this tee from BluebirdApparel for my dad this year. Just because I’m his ONLY daughter doesn’t make this any less true.


It’s been said that there’s no greater love than the love between a man and the dog he said he didn’t want. Next step: wearing a hat proclaiming his undying love for said unwanted dog. The Dog Dad hat from chloedakota comes in several colors and is guaranteed to make him smile.


These gorgeous handmade leather work aprons from CyclonaDesigns are great for the dad who is a pro at the grill and the garden. Stylish, manly, and holds all the tools he needs for whatever job he’s tackling.


HarberLondon makes all kinds of sleek, minimal tech protectors. Dad would definitely love this combination wool and leather phone case with a built in pocket for cash / cards.


Okay. How stinking cute is this personalized and engraved tie clip from emilyjdesign? Emily will take your kid’s handwriting or drawing and turn it into a one-of-a-kind unforgettable gift for Dad. Talk about unique!


Yeah, yeah, yeah. A tie for Dad. How predictable. Except for the fact that Cyberoptix has the actual coolest ties on Etsy. This shop has been around since 2006, so you know they’re doing something right. I especially love these nautical clipper ship ties that are available in several cool colors.


Dad deserves a little bling, too, right? How awesome is this wooden lapel flower from TwoGuysBowties? Yeah, the man cleans up niiice.


Dad passed on his taste in food (especially tacos!) to you, so spoil him on Father’s Day with a matching set of tees from Xenotees and go celebrate! Eat alllll the queso!

8 of the best teacher gifts on etsy

We’re coming to the end of another looong school year, and it’s time to show those teachers how much you appreciate them for dealing with (I mean, imparting their tremendous widsom on) your kid for the past 9 months.

These colorful tumblers from LifetimeCreations can be engraved with the names of your choice, and it will definitely help keep them hydrated through the upcoming summer months!


How great are these pencil shaped pencil holders from SayreGiftShop? I absolutely love how colorful and sturdy they are, and they’ll look great in your teacher’s classroom when the new year kicks off!


Teaching is a work of heart. A to the MEN, y’all. Give your teacher a sweet personalized tote from RoyalBabesCo to carry all her papers and tech back and forth!


SeoulLittle makes the sweetest little gold apple necklaces. Any teacher would proudly wear one around her neck to celebrate her love of the classroom.


He’s been teaching geography all year long.. give him a gift that says you appreciate all of his hard work, like this map bowtie from MyBowtifulCreations!


How ridiculously cute are these colored pencil earrings from CreativeFunny? They would be the perfect gift for an art teacher!

As a massive fan of the oxford comma, I highly approve of this mug from GiggleBack. I’m pretty sure any English teacher would, too.


Your favorite teacher is probably getting a bunch of gifts, and she’ll definitely need some personalized cards (like these, from my own shop, letterhappy) to send out her thank you notes!

10 of the best animal items on etsy

My college mascot was a badger, so naturally, I’m drawn to anything badger-themed. This super sweet illustration from milamadeillustraties is honestly one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. (And if you’d rather wear a little badger on your lapel instead of hang him on your wall, you can get the enamel pin version right here.)


Sloths are just the best. Don’t try to convince me otherwise. Luckily, you can have these adorable hugging buddies from LauraFrisk on your couch, bed, or chair. (Or all three. I won’t judge.)


If we’re being honest, I want EVERYTHING from BigStuffed, but if I HAD to choose, I would go with this massive manatee plush. He’s almost 3 feet long!


Dog lovers unite! I adore everything from CreativeCeramicShop, especially this sweet little doggie planter. Totally handmade, handpainted, and it even has drainage holes!


Cat people, I’ve got you, too! Ryan Berkley is a long time Etsian and I’m a long time fan of his work - do yourself a favor and go look through berkleyillustration’s entire shop - you won’t be disappointed. Admittedly, I’m a forever dog person, but even I can’t help but smile at this Rainbow Kitten illustration.


Fun fact: I was OBSESSED with dinosaurs when I was little and I wanted to be a paleontologist when I grew up. Clearly, that didn’t pan out, but I could always add a little prehistoric touch to my decor with one of these awesome dino heads from WhiteFauxTaxidermy. Bonus: they come in literally any color you could ever want!


Regina, owner of ohalbatross dreams up the sweetest little dear ones, and if you’re feeling crafty, you can attempt to sew one yourself! Why not try this adorable elephant as a weekend project?


Two elephants in a row! #sorrynotsorry! There are hundreds of designs in thewheatfield’s shop and every single one of them is colorful, intricate, and oh-so happy! Wouldn’t this gorgeous gal be perfect in a nursery or toddler’s room?


I’m absolutely in awe of the combination of painting, embroidery, and embellishment on this narwhal hoop from OneSleepyOtter.


How ridiculously fun are these realistic silk butterfly clips from katesCottageShop? Instant princess (or Taylor Swift) vibes - perfect for a photoshoot, wedding updo, or bridesmaid accessories.

If Mom’s got a green thumb, get her one of these OOAK planters, individually hand painted by ObjectLessonsCo.


I am OBSESSED with GlassArtStories’ incredibly beautiful stained glass pieces, and I think any mom would love to have one hanging on a window in her home.


For the mom who rules the kitchen, these colorful flour sack towels from littlethingsstudio are right up her alley! You get a set of 4 in bright vibrant colors, perfect for brightening up Mom’s domain.


Your stylish Mom deserves a stylish bag, and this stunning leather one from HoltzLeather (in Alabama! Woo!) can be monogrammed just for her.


For when she needs a little alone time, let her pass some duties off to Dad with these cozy socks from 2troubleboys.


Get her a subtle reminder that you’re (obviously) her favorite kid with this vertical bar necklace from MignonandMignon, available in silver, gold, and rose gold.


Step up her accessory game with these classic tortoise hoops from shopmachetefranco that will go with every outfit she owns.
