For those who love whimsy


A couple years ago I pledged to have a handmade holiday, buying handmade gifts for everyone on our shopping list, and with the exception of one or two things I accomplished it. I started this series the next year to share some of my favorite handmade finds with you and I had such a good time I thought I'd bring it back again! For the next few weeks I'll be sharing some great handmade items in hopes that you'll join me in making handmade a part of your holiday! 

If you have someone on your holiday list with a good sense of humor, this post is for you - let's dive right in!

First up is this spoon by ForSuchATimeDesigns. I know, you're thinking "a spoon?" but, hello! It's hand stamped and hilarious. I bet you can name at least three people in your life this would apply to. (I also like their cereal killer one!)

A stocking stuffer I love so much I've blogged about it before, please feast your eyes on these delicious zombie pops! StarlingSkies is a great Etsy shop - their customer service is simply fabulous, and their products are to die for. Get it? To die for! Zombies! (You know you're laughing). Highly highly highly recommend!

Remember when we used to have to save information from our computers to...disks? Like...floppy disks? Here's a way to reminsce while still enjoying our current technology - floppy disk coasters! I've never ordered anything from VectorCloud but I am blown away by their laser cut designs - in wood no less! And really, how fun are these - you can get them custom engraved!

Not to be outdone in technology-related presents, we also have these Ctrl Atl Delete pillows, perfect for your computer savvy friend! This shop - pillows4fun - is full of awesomeness, but these just take the cake for me!

Do you like giving (or receiving) gifts that make you laugh? Are you trying for a handmade holiday this year?

Haha, I love these. That first one the spoon is awesome. I need some more tech loving friends to give those pillows to!

Ha, that spoon is awesome and so perfect for me! The techie pillows are funny, too! I love whimsical gifts that make me laugh. I was on the giving end of one of those gifts last year when I gave Phil the "keep calm and pet a cat" print, which he loved.

The spoon is hilarious. I don't do coffee but I also don't really talk before 10am so if they had something like that, well that would be me!
I'm a huge fan of the gifts that fit the person + make you laugh. If there's no laughter, what else is there? =)

I love everything in this post. I kind of want to get those coasters for Chris.

Those spoons are cute! I wish I had a purpose to buy one for myself but I don't really need a spoon with a saying! Love the coasters too.

Sweets saw a t-shirt that said "coffee before talkie" on it and wanted it on the spot. He didn't get it, but it describes him almost perfectly. I'd probably amend it to "three coffees before talkie," but, you know, you can't have it your way all the time. ha.
