13 Thoughtful Amazon Handmade Gifts for Everyone on Your List
If you're looking for a sentimental holiday present, Amazon Handmade gifts are crafted by talented artisans while still offering the convenience you expect from Amazon.
Our editors and experts handpick every product we feature. We may earn a commission from your purchases.
There’s no shortage of both classic and unique gifts on Amazon, but many of the items available from the mega-retailer come from big-name brands. If you’re looking for something a bit more personal this holiday season, browse through Amazon Handmade—a section of the site where artists and crafters can sell their one-of-a-kind handmade products.
It’s quite similar to Etsy, which is one of our favorite places to buy handmade gifts! There’s everything from custom kitchen gifts to stocking stuffers, and they can be purchased via your regular Amazon shopping cart.
While the checkout process is the same, keep in mind that items from Amazon Handmade may take longer to ship, as they’re often made to order. Not everything on this part of Amazon is eligible for Prime, so you’ll want to check the estimated shipping time (and cost) before buying, especially if you’re in a time-crunch.
