There are several kinds of gifters. Some spend days searching for the perfect present that complements a person's personality, and some scoop up candles for everyone on their list at the last minute and call it a day. We're not judging either way, but if you're hoping for the best of both worlds this year—i.e., finding seriously thoughtful gifts without having to put in much work—we suggest turning to Etsy. The retailer is the ultimate one-stop shop for artisan-made, one-of-a-kind goodies galore, and now that the Etsy early Black Friday sale just landed, there's never been a better time to shop.

There are a ton of options bound to impress the socks off your giftees, along with plenty of holiday decor finds and goodies you may want to snag for yourself. We love kicking off the holiday season with an old fashioned Christmas countdown, which is why this adorable, customizable Advent calendar (was from $58, now from $46) by LoveandLuxeHandmade is the first thing we're buying. The foldable wooden calendar features a festive scene dressed in plaid, and is packed with 24 drawers that can be filled with mini treats (from Hersey kisses to Godiva truffles) to get everyone into the holiday spirit leading all the way up to Christmas.


Want to give it a personal touch? For a few more dollars, you can add a family name or meaningful phrase of up to 18 characters to the front of the calendar. Hey, the more personal, the better. One reviewer raves, "Y’all. I can’t say enough. It is incredible quality. The box itself is a lot larger [and] deeper than I expected, and I was pleasantly surprised! My daughter is so excited for us to fill it for her [in] December!"

You also can't go wrong with this other beyond-charming wooden house Advent calendar (was $82, now $57) which comes topped with a three-dimensional village and glows with LED lights to bring the holiday magic. And if you're looking for more gifts, well, who wouldn't want a personalized whiskey decanter set (was from $36, now from $20), diary set (was from $47, now from $36) or leather laptop cover (was from $64, now from $42)?

Even if you just feel like snagging candles in bulk (was from $8, now from $4), every gift from Etsy looks like you put some real thought into it, even though you just hit 'add to cart.' So, grab your card and shop more of our favorite Etsy early Black Friday deals below.
