It’s holiday shopping time and we are here to help you find great gifts for the whole family. We love to support local businesses so we’re highlighting artisans and craftspeople from Southern California who have shops in Etsy.com.
This post contains affiliate links to the Etsy shops.
At MomsLA, we always like to support local businesses, but this year especially – we think you’ll agree – supporting local artists is smart for four reasons.
- Small businesses are the backbone of the economy, but more than that, they’re our friends, neighbors and family.
- As we’ve seen, shipping times have been delayed and lengthened this year, putting holiday deliveries at risk. Problem solved when you shop local – shorter distances to ship mean faster arrival times.
- Most of the artists listed here are Moms and Dads, with some Aunties and Kids, too.
- You’re much more likely to get a unique gift from one of these artists, perfect for those on your list who have everything.
Thank you for joining us to Shop Local. Happy shopping and have a wonderful holiday season!

This artist makes Hand Dyed Textiles, Sassy Greeting cards + More. We love the hand-dyed and tie-dyed designs – and the baby onesies. Here are our picks: Hand-dyed, long-sleeved baby onesie, Cactus embroidery hoop, and this hand-dyed, relaxed fit Tee.
