Top five Etsy finds in January

Goodies for special announcements and happy surprises topped the list of your favourite Etsy finds for January. After partying for the beginning of the new year, it’s nice to have other exciting things to celebrate isn’t it? Come and see what other handmade pretties took your fancy for the start of 2016.


A custom-designed monochrome baby announcement from Poppy Designs Boutique highlights the most important information, it can arrive as a JPEG or PDF for easy printing. All you need to do is provide photos of your baby and some birth information and the rest will be done for you. Perfect.

Party on with the surprise ball from Bashabaloo (see above)! They are interactive gifts for the birthday girl or boy or ideal for use as a fun pass-the-parcel game. As each brightly coloured layer of the ball is unwrapped, a surprise is revealed.


Bumps and bruises will be the cause of a lot less tears if mum has an Apple White First Aid zipper pouch on hand. Keep it stocked and ready to use at home, or slip it into your nappy bag or handbag.


This cute koala from MW Handicrafts was popular with everybody wanting to show some Aussie pride on Australia Day. He is hand made using quality acrylic yarn and has no plastic or small parts, making him suitable for any age.

play food cakes and biscuits

Lastly, the Wombats Picnic felt play food set looked good enough to eat. Made from wool felt and hand stitched, it’s the ideal little set for some imaginative play with some of this country’s iconic treats.
