The Buy/By Irish Etsy Gift Guide

It's the first week of December and I've already missed Christmas. See, to send gifts and cards to family and friends in Ireland and Australia before Christmas, I need to buy, wrap, and ship them all last week. That, or I vigorously knock snow boots with a certain red-suited older man in the delivery business to avoid express shipping rates.
I can't time-travel, and I won't get in the backseat of Santa's sleigh, so I'm going to make the most of Etsy's Shop Local tool! Thanks to this handy little tool, I can find vendors in any country (in this case, Ireland), and then have my gifts shipped directly to the recipient. I'll save on shipping costs, save the local economy, save the planet, and save Christmas, too!

Here are a few of my favorite gift-picks from Irish Etsy vendors:
Gorgeous jewelry from Black Lotus Design (free shipping worldwide)

Sweet felted bears with gems from Ememem (previously featured here)

Beautiful sterling silver rings, earrings, and pendants from Made For An Angel

Knit and hand-felted berets, brooches, gloves, and jewelry from Crafts 2 Cherish

Precious pocket art mirrors from Meluseena

Affordable bling from Funky Blink

Sweet handknit mittens from Love Lambie (previously featured here)

Folk art ornaments and greeting cards from Lady Bird Art

Delicate but edgy jewelry from Clodagh Molloy

Wild and interesting felt scarves from Feltfieltrofilc

As you can see, there's no shortage of unique and beautiful gifts in the Irish corner of Etsy for either side of the Atlantic. Now to get my friends and family to shop this list for me!
