Fresh Holiday Trends for 2017: Etsy

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

I am fascinated by trends. Are you? There are weather trends, work place trends, business trends, job trends, food trends, real estate trends, hair trends, fashion trends color trends and so on.

The definition of a trend is a general direction in which something is developing or changing. In college I took several classes on trends. I remember distinctly studying pre peak – peak – post peak timelines. I find trends intriguing. They pique my curiosity.

Trends unite us. Give us a common ground. A connecting point.

This article is inspired by the Fresh Holiday Trends for 2017: Etsy article on the Etsy blog.

The trends are: Trending Holiday Home Decor (The New Classics, Sophisticated Stockings, and Moody Tablescapes), Trending Holiday Gifts (Deluxe Pet Gifts, Cosmic Appeal, Hometown Pride and Treat Yo’self) and Trending Presentation Ideas (Creative Wrapping). Here are a few trend inspired items from members of the Etsy Christmas In July team.

Trending Holiday Home Decor

The New Classics

Przemila K from CanisArtStudio says:.

I am a lover of nature and I know how important ecology is to our lives. Observing wild birds and animals in nature is what brings the most joy and relaxation. I want to share my impressions and love for wild nature and animals. But for me, ecology is also important and what we do to protect our planet. That’s why I’ve designed a series of home decorations that I make from waste materials. I use wood remnants from the production of other objects: small pieces of panels and frames, these pieces were going to be burned, and I give them a new life. It requires more of my time and work because everything is completely different. It took a lot of time to match those pieces to make them a nice composed whole. That’s why each of these objects is different and unique. and my decorations are made of 100% natural materials. I hope that my decorations bring joy and happiness and make a smile.


Trending Holiday Gifts

Cosmic Appeal

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

The stars are trending on Etsy this year and Stock Lane Studio has plenty of Cosmic appeal. Love is written in the stars in our SLS cosmic heart printable. This heart art is great year-round, but especially fitting as a holiday gift. Nursery decor, wall art or a card for a loved one, it’s very versatile. Since it’s digital, it can also be used electronically. Announce an engagement or send a message to a loved one using your downloaded art as a backdrop. Don’t have time to do it yourself? SLS LOVES to personalize, just send us a message and we can work with you. We also offer a printed version of this heart art, and have more Night Sky designs in our shop.


Treat Yo’self

susannah raine-haddad from zouzousbasement says:

Linda Britt from LindaBrittDesign says:

Treat yourself to a pair of these unique handmade earrings – Only you will have a pair like them! They are great for the holidays!


Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

Treat yourself to a beautiful wrap bracelet with high quality Czech glass beads in tones of green, gold and brown with a golden lotus charm.


Trending Presentation Ideas

Creative Wrapping

Susan McCarthy from WellDressedCupcakes says:

I just added this section to my shop for custom tags for holidays and all celebrations.

I have always loved to give homemade gifts to family. I think it started way before I became an adult! I was always making or creating something and it never stopped. The 1st year I was married -we had absolutely no money. My gift to my husband was all handmade ornaments for our 1st tree. I always love trying something new – sewing, knitting and now my Etsy shop. These tags will be perfect for some of my gifts this year. I added some for my personal homemade gifts and also baking tags which reminds me I need to start planning for cookies.
