Holiday Gift Guide-Men's Edition

Are you already freaking out about holiday shopping. I usually leave mine until the week before Christmas. But as this season seems to be flying by and I'm so much busier this year, I thought I would get a jump on my "freaking out" and my shopping.

Since I am a member of the Etsy community, I decided that I would start my holiday shopping on Etsy. Etsy is full of incredible handmade items by some really mind-blowing artists. I went looking for something very cool for someone on my list. Just scrolling through the newly listed items was dizzying. An abundance of jewelry (including Little Brown Bird) rolled past along with handsewn quilts, ornaments, hair ribbons and bows, prints...etc...ok, I could go on forever. But what I was looking for was something for a guy, something really cool, something different. A few search clicks later and bingo! I came up with some very talented artists and some really great gift ideas for the not so traditional guy. I have my favorites but I couldn't live with myself if I didn't share them with you!

Here they are (in no particular order because I love them all!):
