20 Awesome + Interesting Gifts From Philly Etsy Shops

Written by Brendan Sweeney

When properly utilized, Etsy is an amazing tool for finding unique, well-made holiday gifts. Since there is no middle-man, the prices are also damn near impossible to beat. In cities that boast a variety of hardworking, creative artists, craftsmen and collectors like Philadelphia, it also becomes a handy and effective way to get what you want while supporting local makers and artists.

Here are a few gifts we found just begging to be purchased for the Christmas and holiday season.
