Spring is just around the corner which means that so are lots of important dates; Mother’s day, Easter and lots of Spring babies birthday’s!
So, this year I’ve been pulling together some gift ideas from independent brands on Etsy from all over the world, which I know everyone will love. And I’ve also thrown in some extra stuff for us in there, because let’s be honest – we all love a bit of retail therapy!
I did an Etsy Best Buys Gift Guide last year and you guys loved it! So I’ve pulled together another little guide to save you time, so that this year you can focus on writing out your cards instead!
And here it finally is…
Etsy Best Buys Gift Guide for Spring 2021!

First up, we have the most beautiful oriental print which I’ve been eying up for MONTHS. I just love chinoiserie art and Diane creates it so beautifully with the most delicate pastel tones. It’s now taking prized position on my decorative side board and it’s even more beautiful it real life. Check out Diane’s shop using link above!
Whilst we’re on the subject of art, what I love about Etsy is the many forms you can get it in. I absolutely love these contemporary ceramic vases. The super clean and feminine style makes them bang on trend for this year’s Parisian meets Nordic style and they’d make the perfect statement piece on your window cill or book shelf.
Have you ever seen anything cuter? These nordic style shell vases are so on trend, and coming in pastels and warm hues, they’re the perfect decor to add to any home! And the matte texture…well that just makes it extra dreamy. *orders 10 vases & 10 bunches of flowers online for next day delivery*
Okay I fell head over heels with this ring as soon as I saw it. And at only £15, it’s a complete bargain and SO chic! If you buy it, please let me know – I’d love to see what it looks like in person!
This beautiful, under-stated opal ring is one of my absolute favourite new additions to my jewellery collection. It’s the perfect style for anyone with dainty, small hands like myself and Opal just adds a subtle, chic & vintage touch to any outfit. I’m guaranteed to be wearing this in every single Instagram post from now on, so keep your eyes peeled!
I’ve just received this gorgeous breaded bracelet in the post and it’s even prettier in real life! I wanted something delicate and classic that will add a touch of chic to my outfits and I think I’ve found just the bracelet! You’ll definitely be seeing lots of it on my Instagram feed too, oh and it’s free gift wrapping which makes it the perfect mother’s day/bestie’s birthday/Spring-time-treat-yourself present! It doesn’t get any better than that, does it?
Again with these gorgeous earrings, I wanted something super understated and classic, yet with a contemporary twist which will lift my outfits slightly. And these gold plated square hoop earrings are the perfect match! They’re super comfy and not too heavy, which means you can wear them all day long and with any outfit.
I love abstract, slightly distorted jewellery just as much as I do sleek, classic designs. I think they bring so much character and I am obsessed with these little beauties! I bought for days when I’m not feeling too fancy but still want something to make it look like I’ve not just rolled out of bed (and let’s be honest, 99% of the time I have). These earrings are perfect because they’re not too out there but also the design still feels really chic and contemporary. Perfect for zoom calls and hair-bun days!
And with all those extra pieces of beautiful jewellery you’re adding to your collection, it’d be rude not to buy something to put them all in (or on)! I love this trinket dish so much and it looks so pretty on my bed side table. The gold detailed scallop hem add a touch of luxury and it’s super affordable!
Flowers are always a good idea on mother’s day! It feels like only yesterday I was walking to the local florist in town to fetch some fresh daffodils for my mum on Sunday morning. But this year, I wanted to get some that I know will last longer than just a few days and these real dried flowers are the perfect alternative. Starting at £9.95, they’re pretty much the same price as your usual bouquet too! And with lots of different colours available, I know she’ll love them!
If you’re looking for a small, affordable & pretty gift then these shell candles are the perfect idea! They come in lots of colours and shapes ranging from pink pastel shells to ivory women’s figures. Oh, and they start from only £4!
Okay, I know it may not be summer yet but a girl can dream right? Woven bags are always in every year, and this one is the perfect contemporary twist of the classic style, the shape is so beautiful and the tassel detail is unreal! The perfect bag to get excited for summer, wherever you are!
What I love most about Etsy is the range of things you can buy that you just can’t find on the high street. These beautiful handmade draws are in my *dream* bedroom! HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THEY? And whilst not everyone can afford these right now (myself included) I know that for someone, somewhere they’ll be just what they’ve been looking for! If you do end up buying them, I might just have to come and steal them off you. P.S please send me pictures!
And last but not least, if you’ve been following my journey on Instagram you’ll know that at the very start of June 2020 I just so happened to upload some face masks to my completely new Etsy shop. I’d never been an Etsy seller before, but you guys changed all of that for me and since that day, I’ve been making pretty floral masks for you ever since! From vintage florals, to summer ditsys, celestial moons, to pastel ginghams. I’ve absolutely loved making all of your face masks to keep you going during such a hard year. All I can say is thank you so much for choosing me! If you’ve not come across my little shop yet, come along and say hi x
