Gift Ideas from Etsy Sellers

Just-Right Gifts Under $50

Joanna Goddard writes the award-winning blog A Cup of Jo, which covers fashion, decor, weddings, babies andmotherhoodForbes named her blog one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women,” and Martha Stewart Living praised her “genius finds from around the web.” Before her own baby was born, she wrote about relationships for Glamour Magazine, and she now contributes regularly to Conde Nast Traveler. Joanna lives in a teeny Manhattan apartment with her husband and their toddler son, who just learned how to walk (yay!) and never refuses a Cheerio.
My mom always, always finds the perfect gift, and after 30 years of watching her, I’ve finally figured out her method: she thinks long and hard about the person whom she’s buying a present. She thinks about what books, movies and hobbies they truly love. She’ll think about the vacations they take, the foods they splurge on, even the way they typically spend a Sunday afternoon. After mulling over the way they spend their lives, she’ll be able to more easily scout a present that truly fits. Isn’t that sweet? So, for the people on your list, here’s a list of ideas that might fit, whether they love reading books, dressing up or sampling desserts.
