Tit for Tat: A Holiday Guide to Etsy

While strolling through the DIY-dream that is ETSY, and brushing past the over-priced vintage finds and monogramed everything, I stumbled upon the following 8 must haves for you and your SO/BFF/Mom. Although this is the season of selflessness, you must also remember to treat yo’ self. Each of the following perfect gifts for the creatively inclined is paired with a personal indulgence.

1) Even Infinity scarves couldn’t last forever. Blanket scarves are the new most stylish and coziest way to stay warm this winter.
