A Very Etsy Christmas

In honor of black Friday, I thought I would take this opportunity to provide some gift ideas from Etsy for all you active mommies out there. All gifts mentioned below are under $50 and available through stores on

For Mom:
1. Wrist Cuff Wallet
The Eco-friendly wallet featured is designed from 100% cotton tee shirt scraps. Currently it is priced at $5.25 plus shipping. Cuff is adjustable and measures: 10" from end to end. Check out everything it can hold below. What a great idea, I will be picking up mine this week.

2. Headband
This gray fashion forward headband/ ear warmer features a cute flower. It is made of acrylic yarn and is machine washable. According to the creator one size fits most but you can contact her directly to do a special order. This is great for those of us with bigger than average heads! This stylish headband/ear warmer retails for $10 plus shipping.

3. Fingerless gloves
When I saw these I thought they would be perfect for biking enthusiasts. The designer talks about all the other possibilities for these awesome gloves. " Your fingers are free to drive, sip tea, dig for change, apply lip gloss, ring a door bell or.... Ladies have told me that they love my gloves for a cool or air conditioned office, stylish and warm. Adorned with my peek-a-boo tree motif label on the upper inside of only one of the gloves." The gloves are one size fits all and made of jersey knit. They retail for $24 plus shipping. (Santa, I mean hubby these would be great under the tree :)) This shop also features a number of other cool Eco-friendly products that are worth a look as well.

 4. Cream Run Forrest Run Distressed Gump Movie Inspired T Shirt 

I loved the movie Forrest Gump. This shirt is perfect for the ultimate fan who is a runner. It is printed exclusively by jamjam tees on a 100% heavyweight Hanes Tagless Tee. This shirt is also features high quality Eco-friendly water based ink that does not peel or chip. This tee shirt is available in size S-XL. If you need larger sizes please contact the designer before purchasing. This shirt retails for $13.99 plus shipping.

5. Runner's Tennis Shoe Necklace, Sterling Silver Blue London Topaz
This necklace would be a perfect gift to celebrate a running milestone such as running your first half-marathon or setting a personal record. It is made of sterling silver and features a runner's shoe and a London blue topaz gemstone to represent both the blue skies and the rain.  How would that be under the Christmas tree? This necklace retails for $32 plus shipping and handling.

Stay tuned...I will be featuring some gifts for the active kids in your life in the coming week.
