Getting something unexpected and unique is the holy grail of holiday shopping. But if you don’t have the time to hunt through every boutique and small business in your state, Etsy is the perfect spot for you to search. (Added bonus: You don’t need to put on shoes or pants.) One online destination, it has over a million sellers offering everything from hand-knit hats to handmade dining tables.

But if you’re overwhelmed at the prospect of sifting through all those options on your own, never fear. We have rounded up 15 buys that will make the recipient say, “Where’d you find this?!”

Home Sweet Home Throw Pillow, $32 at Counter Couture Design

Each pillow can be customized to place the heart over whichever state (of the lower 48) that you want. Great for college students or anyone who lives far from home, you can also get two or more hearts. The significance is up to you: For couples, you can choose each person’s home state, or even do one heart for each place the recipient has lived.
