You can also get a head start on your Christmas shopping (or making your own Wishlist!) by taking a peek right now at our EtsyMCR Makers Directory.

If you’re not already a member of the Team, you can apply to join us – you just need to be a Greater Manchester-based Etsy seller.
Baiba Auria of Egoiste Gallery chooses her favourite luxury Christmas gifts to help you really spoil your loved ones!
I am Baiba Auria, and I am a portrait artist and an independent gallery co-owner, where me and my team look after a family of 17 artists practicing all kinds of art forms – from felting and sculpture to drawing and fine art. We are very active on Etsy alongside our own website and it has brought us many clients who have become regulars. Through the Etsy Manchester team I have gotten to know many incredibly talented makers and it is my pleasure to curate this years luxury gift list.
So here goes:
Hope you enjoyed this selection and have a fabulous Christmas! Baiba.
Let’s take a peek at Doodlesworth’s top picks of Christmas gifts for the girls in your life!
Hello, I’m Helen and my shop is Doodlesworth. I make illustrated cards, prints, badges and tote bags. I like to draw things to make myself laugh, I’m a bit of a geek and I love cats, which is all reflected in my work.
This list is titled Gifts for Gals, but a lot of my choices aren’t exclusively for women; they are just things that I like, and a good excuse to show off some of the brilliant things you can buy from Etsy Manchester members.
Honestly, I could carry on much longer, there are so many talented makers out there in Manchester. Next time you are on Etsy, why not search for etsymcr? You won’t be disappointed!

Heya! I’m Mary, the owner, designer, maker and everything else over at Mary’s Jewellery Bakery!

Among many other things, I also love stationery! When this month’s gift guide’s theme came up, I just had to get involved! Here are my top picks for amazing Back to School gifts for kids, teens, university students and anyone who is stationery crazy!
