Looking for some original and thoughtful gift ideas? We recently showcased four outstanding Etsy shops in our "Artisan Spotlights"-- Scodioli Creative, Vintagetypegirl, Mitzi's Collectibles, and Fondue Vintage Homewares. All of these shops have great gift options for the holidays (and birthdays and Valentine's day and all around great gift giving). Of course, our favorite aspect of each of these artisans is how they incorporate vintage wallpaper into their fantastic products, but they all have so much more to offer than just tickling our wallpaper fancy.
Check out each of these shops, and just see if you can't spot a perfect gift for someone on your list (or a little something extra for yourself too)--
Scodioli Creative offers a wide variety of handmade bath and body care products for both women and men. From soaps and perfumes to shaving soap, beard tonic, and more, everything from Scodioli Creative is high quality and beautifully packaged. Perhaps the best part of the whole shop is the captivating personality of "Madame Scodioli," the shop's iconic bearded lady figurehead, and the mid-century era carnival inspiration that surrounds each item.

Using vintage stationary, comic books, wallpaper, and other ephemera, Vintagetypegirl combines the charm of old paper and the delight of handmade care to each of her lovely jewelry pieces, magnets, and more. Many of her items are just lovely, some of them are also witty (those of which incorporate clever text typed on one of her many vintage typewriters), and all of them are quite special. Whether you just want something pretty or prefer that little edge of humor, Vintagetypegirl has something sweet for whatever mood.
