A handmade touch makes any gift more memorable, whether you’re shopping for somebody else or yourself! You already know you can browse unique offerings from artists and makers on Etsy, but did you realize there are plenty of other marketplace websites online where entrepreneurs can sell their handcrafted offerings? Here are four other sites for finding one-of-a-kind purchases.

1. Amazon Handmade and Small Business

Put your Prime subscription to good use when you shop for Amazon Handmade offerings that are “handcrafted, hand-designed, or hand-altered,” or Amazon Small Business products, which are U.S.-based companies with fewer than 100 employees. 

You can find everything from lip balms to earrings to wall prints. You can also look specifically at women-owned, Black-owned, Hispanic-owned, Military family-owned, Asian and Pacific Islander-owned, and LGBTQIA-owned shops. Many shops fall under the Amazon Handmade and Amazon Small Business umbrella — win-win!

2. Redbubble

If you’re searching for a niche quote from your favorite TV show emblazoned on a sticker, phone case, coffee mug, or really anything, Redbubble is the site for you. Do you want a pillow with The Golden Girls thanking you for being a friend? No problem. Perhaps you need a Parks and Rec coaster reminding you to “treat yo’ self”? You’ve got it. But it’s more than inside jokes; you can find all sorts of illustrations and art.  

Redbubble came online in 2006 to “give independent artists a meaningful new way to sell their creations.” Today, more than 70,000 artists upload their designs, and then shoppers can choose from certain products featuring that artwork. You can swiftly navigate the categories or search for a specific interest to see what’s available.

3. Society6

Whenever I want to spruce up the walls in my home, I browse Society6’s canvas prints, framed posters, and tapestries. There are so many styles and tastes to choose from. The online marketplace opened in 2009 specifically as a place for artists to sell their designs, and it’s grown into a “global community of 450,000+ independent artists from 170+ countries,” so you’re bound to find something that suits your space.

You can also shop for apparel like graphic T-shirts, furniture and homeware like coffee tables, accessories like water bottles, and way more, all emblazoned with artists’ work. Plus, the site is beautiful and easy to navigate. Once you start browsing, it might be hard to stop! 

4. Zazzle

Zazzle describes itself as “a global online marketplace for creating unique designs and products made on-demand.” You can shop more than 900 creators’ designs, which can go on mugs, shirts, cards, stationery, and so much more. You can also easily make your own customized pieces.

It can be tough to know where to start if you don’t know what you want, but you can browse ready-made items like wall art and pillows in categories like “home decor.” To add your own touch, personalize products like invitations, party supplies, and apparel.
