It's never to early to early to start picking up things for Christmas gifts. I'm one of those that starts Christmas shopping (and Making Christmas gifts) in the spring. OK, so not everyone is as crazy as me, but a little early shopping on Etsy will definitely make the holidays a little easier for you. :o)
Here's a great gift idea for the women and girls on your list. These adorable bags of mine have been very popular seller in my KnitzyBlonde Etsy Shop. They are my zippered wristlet pouches and and come in a large variety of colors and 3 different sizes (small, large, and tall). They have a wrist strap that is made of the same fabric as the lining, which compliments the outer fabric.
These little bags are a perfect idea for any lady on your gift list. I have several that I fill with various goodies and tuck into my larger handbag. It helps to keep things organized. You can fill one of these with someone special's favorite cosmetics, perfume, ipod, or gift certificate, and it would make a fabulous treat for under the tree. These also work great as bridesmaid's gift if you are getting married. I can make up a matching set of them in them same fabric. Send me a convo through Etsy if you have any special requests.
Happy early Christmas shopping!
