The Foggy Dog Even Fido needs some Chanukah love. Gift man’s best friend with a custom bed by San Francisco-based the Foggy Dog. Dog beds, scarves, leashes, toys and more, feature boho, whimsical printed textiles sure to get barks of appreciation. Each item is handcrafted and made with heavy-duty materials and thread to withstand scratching — the bed covers are made without any zippers so your pet won’t be able to chew on those either. Beds can be custom-made to cover an existing bed, inserts can be purchased or you can stuff the cover with old blankets and sheets. Beds start at $30. Etsy.com/shop/thefoggydog.

Little Cosmetics Shop Little girls want to be just like mommy, so Little Cosmetics Shop has been turning out pretend make-up kits on Etsy since 2012. The “cosmetics” look and feel just like the real thing — but they aren’t. No color transfers to her skin, or your couch, and the palettes encourage pretend play and imagination. You can buy individual lipsticks, glosses, eyeshadows, powders, even nail polish. Splurge on a set for your little beauty queen and they will include an adorable cosmetics pouch to store everything. Cosmetics start at $4.50. Etsy.com/shop/LittleCosmeticsShop.
Soul And Soap Candles, shower gels and bath bombs that look good enough to eat with a spoon and won’t cost you any calories? Yes, please! These creamy confections come in flavors like strawberry shortcake, gingerbread, blackberry jam and raspberry lemonade. Most products are vegan and they’re all suitable for vegetarians, plus they’re never tested on animals. Our personal favorite was the scrumptious bath macarons, but kids will likely go crazy for the glittery unicorn poop bath bomb. $8 and up. Etsy.com/shop/SoulAndSoap.

Pamela Barsky Shop Laundry bags, cosmetic pouches, tote bags and pencil cases with kitschy sayings like “Everyone looks better in mascara” or “I’m not crazy, I’m creative” can help you say just what you mean. And, with more than 200 sayings and 300 styles, you’re bound to find something to please everyone on your list. Each bag is hand-printed, heat-sealed and hand-sewn on heavy-duty canvas — and all the canvas items are machine washable. $15-$31.50. Etsy.com/shop/pamelabarskyshop.
Cyberoptix Tie Lab These aren’t your father’s neckties! Cyberoptix Tie Lab has been in operation since 2005 and, lucky for us Detroiters, they’ve recently launched a brick-and-mortar (Well Done Goods) in Midtown Detroit, too. The Etsy boutique features dozens of uniquely printed ties, scarves and pashminas. They offer kids’ neckties, too, perfect for your bar mitzvah boy. Among their most popular items are the baseball necktie and the eye-chart linen-weave pashmina. However, if none of their selections seem just right for you, they invite you to join in the design process. Choose from thousands of color combinations and design a necktie that’s distinctively you. $36 and up. Etsy.com/shop/Cyberoptix.
Elissa Sharin Designs Elissa Sharin has been getting artsy for years, but now this former graphic designer is embellishing all kinds of items with her adorable doodles. Her shop carries make-up cases, piggy banks, clipboards, chalkboards and mugs, among many other items. Sharin custom decorates all of these with her easy-to-love, hand-painted graphics (think cupcakes, emojis, ballet slippers, rainbows and peace signs). Turnaround time is about 1-2 weeks, but she’s happy to rush orders, too. Our absolute favorite was the pink Caboodle decorated in splashy colors with our name, kissy emojis and puppy dogs. $14 and up. Etsy.com/shop/Elissasharindesigns.
Ohhio European-based Etsy seller Ohhio uses arm knitting to craft some of the coziest, softest knitted blankets you’ll ever see. They’re offered in a variety of sizes and colors, perfect for snuggling up with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book. These chunky knits are also available in scarves, beanies — even nests for your favorite pet. Prices start at $149 for blankets, but if you’re feeling really crafty, you can purchase a DIY kit and try your “arm” at knitting yourself. Etsy.com/shop/Ohhio.
