One thing we love about the holiday season? Getting to support small makers in their fight against big corporations for customers. Etsy has almost anything one could find in a large department store, and—with 2020 being the year for online shopping—it’s the perfect place to spend your dollars.

Best yet, the gifts from the shops below are handmade in small batches—and with sustainable materials. Not only will your loved ones enjoy unique and heirloom-quality pieces, but your purchase will support small makers around the world.

For more affordable ideas, check out these gifts under $50 and our favorite sustainable gifts for this year.
