Licoricewits - I'm glad you're weird...

Licoricewits on EtsyDo you have that one friend that marches to a different drummer and is almost impossible to shop for because their... well, just a little weird or even slightly odd?

Okay well I have more than one of those. I have a barrage of them! And all year round, I hunt for "the perfect gift" for each of these individuals on my list. Something little, something cute, something perfect and just for them.

Today's shop is filled with just these perfect gifts! And I wanted to make sure I introduced you to them just in time for the beginning of the holiday shopping season too, so maybe you can find that perfect something for someone on your list (or, let's admit it, maybe a little something for yourself too!)

SavageArtwork on EtsyLicoricewits on Etsy is filled with zombies, monsters, aliens and other things cute for the "slightly odd" in life. They have aliens and robots, Sasquatch and goblins mixed along side perfect little cake toppers and nerd girl gifts. I am in love with their little wooden Kokeshi dolls, but they also have bookmarks and art prints, magnets and even original paintings!

Terry, the artist behind Licoricewits, is based in Vancouver, BC and has a love for horror, sci-fi and most things cute and has done an amazing job of incorporating all of that together into a terrific shop filled with wonderful items to tempt you with.

This extremely talented artist also does animal artwork in their second shop, SavageArtwork on Etsy, which is filled with owls, penguins and a variety of bunnies, ducks, wolves and other animals on prints, magnets and more.

Journals, Pottery and More from Write Owl Designs - A Rare Post by Leal

Journals, Pottery and More from Write Owl Designs - A Rare Post by LealAnd in the case of books with blank pages, such as journals, the phrase "anything is possible" takes on an entirely new meaning. A blank book is a book of possibilities. It's hungry and eager and waiting to be filled with anything you might want to tuck between its pages and have held and treasured there.

Today's shop is filled with countless possibilities. WriteOwl on Etsy is dedicated to giving something meaningful back to people, connecting with them and encouraging them to make their own stories through imagination and creativity.

The artist, Jean, is inspired by a story she shares on her profile concerning her mother transforming the way that she sees books and journals, and her love of books has carried on into adulthood and is obvious in her Etsy shop.


WriteOwl carries a variety of journals from coptic stitch to hardback, post bound and more. There are also coasters, pencil cups and even some DIY kits for those that want to try their hand at making their own!

TO VISIT WRITEOWL'S SHOP ON ETSY, YOU CAN CLICK THE PICTURE ABOVE OR, IF YOU'D RATHER, CLICK RIGHT HERE!

You can also visit WriteOwl on their blog or stop by and say hello on Facebook or Twitter!
