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!

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.

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!

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!

il_fullxfull.934006064_9yb6.jpg

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.

il_fullxfull.196076765.jpg

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

il_fullxfull.529205963_qb0h.jpg

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!

il_fullxfull.1836107452_3sv6.jpg

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!

il_fullxfull.1439212373_dikv.jpg

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!

il_fullxfull.1923185211_s1hr.jpg

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

il_fullxfull.696610796_12sy.jpg

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!

il_fullxfull.1572119560_frje.jpg

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.

il_fullxfull.1648979964_j8ja.jpg

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 CELESTIAL FINDS ON ETSY

Outer space style is here to stay, and I am HERE. FOR. IT. Etsy is full of awesome items that are celestial, galactic, astrological, and oh-so-dreamy. Here are 10 of my favorite out-of-this-world finds!

Opal is the perfect gemstone to fit with the celestial theme, and I’m loving this dainty moon ring from TinyBoxJewelry.

il_fullxfull.927368822_sadl.jpg

Calling all astrology lovers! Now you can wear your sign proudly around your neck.. and I love that this dainty necklace from JacarandaDesigns is reversible. (All designs are also available in silver.)

il_fullxfull.1507462153_32tl.jpg

Saturn has always been my favorite planet. There’s just something about those rings, y’all. That’s why I created this sweet rainbow glittery keychain, so (you and) I can carry it wherever I go!

il_fullxfull.1707123783_qw6i.jpg

When I stumbled across hannahdoodle’s work, I couldn’t stop smiling. These moon and star plushes would be absolutely adorable in a galaxy themed nursery or kid’s room.

il_fullxfull.1071864143_ivys.jpg

If you’re like me, and you have a million thoughts in your head all at once, it’s super helpful to carry around a notebook to jot things down throughout the day. It also totally helps if they’re as pretty as these constellation notebooks from Nikkistrange.

il_fullxfull.867320740_baxn.jpg

I absolutely LOVE when I stumble upon something on Etsy that I’ve truly never seen before. And these gorgeous glow-in-the-dark clocks from milliartGlass are now officially on my wishlist.

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.)

il_fullxfull.1497132842_p3k1.jpg

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.)

il_fullxfull.912833651_k9gn.jpg

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!

il_fullxfull.1659378533_8vc2.jpg

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

il_fullxfull.1417185500_imbg.jpg

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.

il_fullxfull.1152525958_g2j4.jpg

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!

il_fullxfull.1470836980_r96a.jpg

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?

il_fullxfull.964297722_4z33.jpg

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?

il_fullxfull.514220212_jzyo.jpg

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

il_fullxfull.1826610514_3pfm.jpg
