Just for fun, I went to Etsy and searched for a variety of items... you can find just about anything your heart would desire there -and it is all handmade.
Need a bed? No problem. How about this one, made by Attiladesign and handcrafted in Helsinki**:Or perhaps you would like to custom design your own wedding cake, like this one here at llkaygifts:
There are goodies to eat:
And things that look good enough to eat, but aren't edible, like this soap:
How about a handpainted silk dress:
Or something a little more off the wall, for that hard-to-buy-for friend (yes, those are tiny little handpainted ants) :
Or get in touch with your punk side:
Maybe some adorable booties for the friend who is expecting:
Maybe you are feeling a little racy, and want a handmade item for the bedroom? How about a pastie:
You can even do a search for artists who live near you. Here are two of my local favorites - Kill 'Em Dirty:
Well, you get the idea. Go ahead - stop by http://www.etsy.com/ and do a search for something, anything - I bet they have it. Handmade rocks.
