I am particularly fond of mistletoe—it seems to convey the feeling of warmth and love. This mistletoe is hand-beaded from glass beads and finished with a golden yellow bow. Hang it wherever you like, but I bet the beads will glisten beautifully when placed near a light source.
These lovely heart ornaments combine felt, lace, and buttons for a very sweet—and very Scandinavian—decoration. Give one to a special someone to wish them “Hyvää Joulua!”
This little reindeer ornament is so sweet. The antlers are hand-beaded and add just the right amount of sparkle. He’s got some “ornaments” dangling from his antlers, too. I love it!
This peppy Christmas tassel garland caught my eye because it combines classic red and green with soft mint and pink, plus some gold for sparkle. String one to liven up your wall or hang several for a fun photo booth backdrop during a party.
Need an accessory for an upcoming Christmas party? This poinsettia hair pin would be an elegant addition to your holiday garb. It is available in either red or white and would also be a great as a gift!
Oh. My. Goodness. Is Neva the Christmas Hippo not just the sweetest thing you’ve ever seen? Hippos are my second favourite animals, so I melted a little when I saw this cutie-pie. Made of red fleece with green cotton ears and tootsies, Neva would make a fun, whimsical addition to anyone’s holiday decor, especially those of us who really do want a hippopotamus for Christmas
One of the things I enjoy most about Etsy is discovering unique handmade items like this wood-burned ornament. I like the stars scattered above the snowcapped mountains with pine trees nestled at the base. The wood used to make this ornament was harvested from fallen branches, so you can rest assured that no trees were harmed in the process of making these ornaments.
This felted acorn garland has a cozy, homemade, yet rustic feel. I love the fact that the designer combined super soft merino wool with actual acorn caps! This would look charming strung on your tree or simply hung on the wall. Felted acorn ornaments are also available.

When wrapping up gifts, I like to get creative with the packaging. Most of the time I repurpose materials that are readily available (i.e. lying around the house), but once in a while I use something unique—like these birch bark gift tags. They are harvested from bark that has naturally fallen from trees in Maine. I think they’d be perfect little tags for gifts or party favors at a rustic themed Christmas party.
This crocheted leaf necklace—with its soft grey leaves and red flower brooch—is both cozy and feminine. You could spiff up any outfit by simply adding this unique necklace, and the removable brooch adds a nice festive touch.
