If you’re still looking for holiday gifts, or deserve a treat for yourself, why not give an extra gift by shopping with independent artists and makers. You get something cute and you help support small businesses too – win win! Here’s some of my recent kawaii Christmas finds. I’ve chosen things from around the world so you can shop local but please check shipping times if you’re ordering for Christmas.
I stumbled across Yippy Whippy (Australia) on Instagram and love all their happy colourful jewellery. There’s a few festive designs that are available as brooches and earrings, plus more retro, fandom, food and animal inspired wearables.
Cat lovers can add some sparkle to your winter coat with a holographic Winter Kitty badge from Catmint Studios (USA). There’s 4 cute designs to choose from, and they’re really affordable too.
Or how about a vintage-style Christmas reindeer wooden brooch from tinrobo (UK)?
Robot Dance Battle (USA) always cheer me up with their colourful and slightly silly characters. They have some awesome new washi tape designs in store including holiday cats with glitter!
If you love glitter and ghosts, how can you resist these glow in the dark resin ornaments by So Cute Company (UK)? Really hoping to unwrap one of these on Christmas Day as it’s just what my kawaii tree needs.
CheekyCharmz (Canada) have some sweet handmade polymer clay charms for the holidays including Christmas pudding, cinnamon rolls, sugar cookie stars and peppermint bark.
Did you know ChelseyDIY has an Etsy shop? She’s selling her kawaii artwork on washi tape, cards and more, plus there’s some original clay creations like this sparkly snowman keyring.
Christmas juice boxes should totally be a thing and this sticker pack by SiselieStudio (EU) is too cute.
PancakeBunnyCo (UK) also have lots of holiday stickers that are perfect for your planner or journalling. I love these Christmas cats who really aren’t helping at all.
The official character of 2020 is surely the kawaii dumpster fire of 100% Soft (USA)! These would be the perfect card for friends and there’s also a holiday-themed enamel pin.
