If we have one piece of advice for Cyber Week it’s this: Don’t discount the Etsy Black Friday sale. It’s easy to get lost in the never-ending list of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales from big-name retailers around the internet (we’re looking at you, Amazon and Target), but we have to give some love to one of our favorite sites for gift shopping—seriously, it’s where we source our one-of-a-kind vintage drinkware, throwback lamps, plants, personalized everything by some expert DIYers, and more.
And Etsy certainly isn’t shying away from the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals this year with offerings of up to 60% off—no coupon or promo code necessary. This is a fantastic time to support small businesses in the form of Etsy sellers as you check everyone off your gifting list. We love the site for the wide range of handmade goods they offer, and the selection of items in the holiday sale is no different. From T-shirts and personalized gifts to self-care essentials and minimalist wall hangings, don’t forget to get yourself a little something.
So drop your craft supplies in the closet and leave the handmade gifts for the experts. Pick out your favorites from the DIY professionals, and load up that shopping cart. Stay tuned as we update this story with more discounts, savings, and any flash sales throughout the weekend sales event. In the meantime, happy Black Friday shopping!
It wouldn’t be an Etsy sale round up without one decorative planter, so we’re kicking off with one in the prime spot. This little half-moon, called a cradle by the maker, is designed specifically for air plants, but we could see it serving as a home for a small succulent or cactus—or even a few trinkets of your choosing.
Nothing kicks off the holiday season like snuggling up with a cozy blanket. This Etsy shop’s gauze-y cotton blanket isn’t like your average fuzzy blanket that you could find in any department store—it’s available in four different bright, eye-catching colors and accented with a contrasting tassel for an extra bit of flair. You can get this unique throw blanket for 25% off its original price.
Everyone needs cool artwork for their home and luckily Etsy has no small shortage of artists selling their work on e-commerce platform—like this orange and black and white striped print.
Updating your gallery wall? We think you should pick up this midcentury wall art during Etsy’s holiday sale. It’s hand-painted and constructed in Milton Keynes, England. It comes in a beautiful color palette of burnt orange, olive green, black, beige and gold.
We love a unique throw pillow. The kind of pillow that doesn’t blend in, but stands out on your bed, couch, or reading chair. And oftentimes, the best way to make something eye-catching is to play with the shape a bit, which is why we love these whimsical knot pillows that are available in seven different colors.
We’ve seen a lot of things made out of leather in our day, but this might be one of the cooler forms it’s taken. Why have a regular old toilet paper holder when you can have an artisanal, handcrafted option instead? Choose from three different color options so you can find the right one for your powder room.
You probably won’t find a rug like this sold in many other places. Not only does the hand-tufted wool pattern make the rug seem like a work of art, it also features slightly varying elevations to add a subtle yet funky element of texture that’ll immediately take any room to the next level.

You’ve heard of personalized name necklaces, but let me turn your attention to the ultimate personalized present: a bespoke decanter set. This is exactly the kind of jaw dropping gift I’d want to receive. It’s thoughtful, it’s unique to just me, and it’s something you can’t get anywhere else. The Etsy seller offers three different options for the decanter. This is an gift you won’t want to miss.
Fancy candle holders are a must for all the entertaining done during the holidays. This light wooden set is neutral enough to blend in well with other elements of a tablescape and offers a subtle way to showcase some stunning taper candles. Marked at a sale price of $46, it’s exactly the accessory you’ll want for all your dinner parties.
Another entertaining necessity, why settle for a regular old set of porcelain plates when you could have a handmade set someone crafted for you? You can purchase the bowls, dessert plates, and dinner platters separately depending on your need, or as a whole set.
And don’t forget a new set of silverware (or in this case, rose gold copperware) to go with your new dishes. These can make for a great stylish Christmas gift for anyone moving into a new apartment.
