Gift Guide 2020: 10 Kid-Approved Gifts on Etsy That Won’t Fit Down Your Chimney

It’s beginning to look a lot like the holiday shopping season everywhere you click. With the recent announcement of “10.10.” – the latest e-Commerce holiday to hit the internet – retailers, shoppers, and even Santa Claus are looking to get a head start on this year’s shopping list. This means you better start checking yours twice.

While many will opt for major retailers for their toy shopping this year, we prefer the handmade quality only found at Santa’s Toyshop. Unfortunately, we don’t live on the North Pole, but we do have Etsy – the online marketplace where items are handcrafted with love (and a little magic). Not only can you find one-of-kind pieces sure to light up your kids’ faces, but you’ll also be supporting small businesses with your purchase.

Here’s our list of 10 kid-approved gifts from Etsy sure to spread joy, many of which are available for blanket-wrapped, home delivery from uShip.
