Must-Have Monday: Cyber Monday Edition

It’s finally here. The long awaited BIGGEST online shopping day, Cyber Monday. Many of us Etsians have been busy stocking up our stores full of holiday delights and setting up great deals for the season. But I had to take a minute away from being an Etsy Shop Owner, and stepped into Christmas Shopper-mode. These are my must haves for the special treasures to be presented under the prominent Christmas Tree all from Homefront Team shops.

My 7 year old daughter is pretty easy to choose for. She is ALWAYS cold, and wearing hats in the house. This Charcoal Buckle Beanie from Two Seaside Babes is stylish and functional. And Raspberry White Scarf from Kristyns Kreations is a perfect accompaniment for those chilly winter days! Of course, being a good mom that I am and all, I can’t forget that she also is in LOVE with her American Girl Doll, so will stop by Camelot’s Treasures for some great doll fashions!

For my 3 year old son, I’ve been eyeballing Baby Love Blankies’ I Spy Bags. The only problem it’s too hard to just choose one; although the Dinosaur I Spy Bag, is among my favorites. And because no kid can have enough cuddly animals, The Q Store has the cutest little “Q Friends” around like this Puppy Q.

My husband is a bit harder to shop for, especially since whenever he wants something he just goes out and buys it. However The Deployment Ring from A Heron Design is perfect for a man constantly on his way to new adventures! And although, maybe not just for him, this cute Navy Snowman Ornament from Art Whims would be a perfect addition to our family Christmas Tree to memoralize our service to the military forever.

There were so many great ideas for Christmas gifts for my Mom, but I had to narrow down the list to a couple of my favorites. The Taffy Box’s Charming Children Sterling Silver Charm Bracelet is a perfect fit for the charm bracelet I’ve always wanted to give to my Mom. Or the Apple Studel Homemade soap from Smokey Mountain Scents would bring memories back from her childhood of her mother’s favorite recipe. And this Holiday Album from Paper on Parade is a perfect way for Mom to showcase our Families’ holiday photos.

My Dad and 3 brothers are always the most difficult to shop for, and equally hard to please. But I think any delectable treat from Nicole’s Handmade Treats are sure to please any guy’s belly. These Beer Mug Coasters from Hungry Hippie are a great reminder for them to keep their glasses off the table! And the iPhone iPod Case/Sleeve is a perfectly functional piece, with a hint of individuality from Sugar Lumps Designs.

With all this holiday shopping for everyone else, I found several presents for myself. This Sterling Silver Itty Bitty Tree of Life Necklace is a beautiful find from She’s All That. Rhapsody Creative’s Custom Photo Christmas Cards would be perfect for sending out holiday wishes to all our friends and family. And Home is Where the Family Sends Us is a perfect sign for our family’s lifestyle from Word Board.

There are so many wonderful gift ideas from all the wonderful shops on Etsy, so be sure to check them out when you are ready to fill your Christmas wish lists.
