handmade // Etsy gift cards + giveaway from Danette!

How on EARTH is it just 6 days until Christmas?  I'm sad.  I love December and January is always kind of a downer.  It's not the weather -- I love the cold.  It's knowing that the joyful holiday season is 11 months away again!  I won't let this ruin the rest of my week of holiday joy, however.  :)

I went to the post office today and the line was seriously ridiculous.  I left immediately and went to buy new ink cartridges for my printer so I could take care of postage at home.  Even the mailboxes were overflowing with last-minute holiday cards being sent out.  Yikes.

What does all this mean?  That if you haven't already taken care of holiday gifting for friends and family that you won't be seeing in person on Christmas, you're in big trouble.  Even expedited shipping may not be able to save you now...

Etsy gift cards floated into my periphery a few months ago and I immediately identified them as not only a great gift idea in general, but a wonderful option for holiday gift giving.  And now that most of our favorite e-retailers' shipping deadlines have come and gone, the brilliance of the Etsy gift card remains an excellent choice for last-minute slackers (like me).


Here's the rundown: Etsy gift cards can be used at any Etsy shop that has a little green gift icon with the words "This shop accepts Etsy Gift Cards" below the shop announcement (below the shop header).  Here's a peek at what to look for (and forgive my Paint skills; I was too lazy to open Photoshop for this one, haha!):


Etsy gift cards are available in $25, $50, $100, or $250.  I'm willing to bet that by this time next year, you'll be able to choose whatever amount you want to give.

If you're among those who still need to find a handmade treasure for a loved one who is out of state or overseas, you're in luck!  Etsy gift cards are, of course, still available for purchase, but wouldn't you like to win one?

The lovely Danette Dillon of All My Love for All My Days is giving one lucky Anna Delores reader a $25 Etsy gift card to help you tackle your panic during these last precious days of holiday gifting.


Please stop by Danette's blog to say "thank you" for introducing you to Etsy gift cards and giving you the opportunity to win one from Danette herself!  Use Rafflecopter below to enter, and hurry!  The giveaway ends on December 23 so you have a wee bit o' time to send your gift card off to its intended recipient.  Good luck!

  2. A good friend of mine, who I know has her eye on so many shiny things! I won't state her name, just in case I win, so I can surprise her, or if I lose so she isn't disappointed :D

  3. I must be really terrible because I'd keep it. There was a specific thing I wanted for Christmas and my boyfriend refused to get it because "he wanted to be original" So, I'd get it for myself instead. :P

    xo, Adriana.
