    1. This crocheted, mini-cacti trio, which you can sit on your window sill without fear of them dying from neglect.

    If you love the idea of being surrounded by plants, but have an unmistakable black thumb, these crocheted mini-cacti belong on your desk. Made from wool-blend yarn, these sweet accessories (look at those little pom poms!) will add colour to your home, no matter the time of year.

    Buy the set of three from Etsy for $32, plus shipping.

    2. This print, "Pink Lady", which in addition to dressing your walls, will remind you to love yourself whenever you glance at it.

    Printed on premium quality, acid-free, rag paper, this darling, minimalist and monochromatic print is the perfect gift for your art-loving friend (or, you know, for yourself).

    Buy it from Etsy for $24, plus shipping.

    3. This darling, pale grey, velvet ring box — perfect if you're intending on popping the question soon, or are looking for somewhere special to keep heirloom jewellery.

    You've spent a small fortune on the ring, so you might as well dish out a touch more on a beautiful box. The standard, complementary one was likely not that impressive — this gorgeous box, however, is sure to make a statement. Clad in classic velvet, in an elegant pale grey, it'll highlight your ring perfectly.

    Buy it from Etsy for $75, plus shipping.

    4. These birthstone, gradient rings — choose by your birth month or your favourite colour, they're beautiful either way.

    I mean, look at them. Of all the ways to wear your birthstone, this here has to be my favourite. From shades of red garnet for January, to hues of icy blue zircon for December, there's a gorgeous ring in it for everybody.

    Buy it from Etsy for $55.24, shipping included.

    5. These concrete, geometric skull vessels, which you can use as a pencil holder, pot or a sculptural element for your bookshelves.

    If rustic terracotta pots aren't your aesthetic, try an edgier alternative like these geometric skull vessels. Made from pure concrete, they are a durable (and quiet frankly, attractive) way to display your baby succulents.

    Buy it from Etsy for $8+ (available in seven colours), plus shipping.

    6. This linen tea towel, which is perfect for those of us who prefer a cuppa over a mug of coffee.

    If you're using a hodge podge of tea towels passed down to you by your mother (I am indeed, talking to myself here), it's time to bring some uniformity and style to your kitchen, courtesy of this pretty (and witty) linen towel. Featuring a darling white and blue colour print on natural linen, it's so aesthetic you might even consider framing it as wall art.

    Buy it from Etsy for $24.90, plus shipping.

    7. This bourbon and leather-scented soy candle, because we can't all pack into tiny, hidden bars just yet...but our homes can at least smell like them.

    These fragrant candles come in many a scent — By The Fire, Cozy Winter Cottage, Pancakes With Maple Syrup, among them — but nothing appeals to me more than the idea of snuggling into a big, leather armchair with a bourbon, so this here is my pick. 100% soy wax, reviewers swear by the unique scent that lasts all the way to the bottom of the wick.

    Buy it from Etsy for $15+, shipping included.

    8. These polymer clay statement earrings, which will catch the sun and distract from dark circles, should you not have got your eight hours the night before.

    I love me a statement earring, especially nowadays when we're all going barefaced and in sweats to our work video calls — they just help you feel a touch more dressed up, you know? These particular ones are made from polymer clay (sturdy but light) and feature glittery gold studs with terrazzo-patterned drops — divine.

    Buy them from Etsy for $35, shipping included.

    9. This jumpsuit pattern, which can be used to sew your offspring's clothes from the day they're born to kindergarten.

    TinyDesignCoPatterns / Via Etsy

    This instant download will give you access to this sweet jumpsuit pattern, with instructions on how to adapt it for children from birth to approximately six years of age. Designed with stud closures to the front (trust me — as a mother of three, I know you don't want to deal with buttons), you can now make your babies' clothes in whichever colour or print you fancy.

    Buy it from Etsy for $14.30.

    10. These sweet, engraved rings, which have the option of several hand signs so you can wear your heart on your...finger.

    LYNNMinimalist / Via Etsy

    Well, this is just beautiful. Rather than engrave "I love you" or "pinky promise" on the band of any ring you might give your friend or partner, have the hand signs for various phrases engraved on these delicate rings. Plus, you can choose from a gold-toned, rose gold-toned or silver metal.

    Buy it from Etsy for $53.22+, plus shipping.

    11. This handmade, crocheted bunny, which is likely cuter than any mass-produced teddy you had intended to buy for bubs.

    LittlePinkCanary / Via Etsy

    If you, like me, love the idea of a handmade, cuddly companion for your baby (but are completely lacking in any craft skills), this here has to be what you've been looking for. Constructed from pure Aussie cotton yarn, these bunnies come in seven different colours and can have eyes sewn to look sleeping (adorable!) or awake.

    Buy it from Etsy for $50, plus shipping.

    12. This mid-century-inspired geometric print, which will add a minimalist sophistication to any room you hang it in.

    LinhPhamStudio / Via Etsy

    If you love the idea of a gallery wall — but not so much the exorbitant amount of money it'll take to buy that much art — Etsy has many a beautiful print you can download instantly, then take to printers to blow up at your discretion. This minimalist geometric print is clad in a sophisticated terracotta hue, and will perfectly tie together the curves and lines of all the artworks you group around it.

    Buy it from Etsy for $8.80.

    13. This gorgeous, ceramic evil eye pendant, which will bring its wearer good luck and ward away ill-will.

    JewelledBazaar / Via Etsy

    Placed on a dainty chain, these ceramic evil eye pendants are the perfect gift for occassions marking new beginnings (anyone you know having a birthday soon?) — or simply to treat yourself with, because simply surviving this year is grounds enough, if you ask me. Unlike most evil eye accessories, these are perfectly rounded for everyday wear and come in more than just the classic blue (I personally, love the white one).

    Buy it from Etsy for $65, shipping included.

    14. And finally, this embossed leather wallet, which can be inscribed with your own message in your personal handwriting.

    KALGHIStore / Via Etsy

    I've been toying with the idea of a tattoo with my mother's handwriting, but I might just get this — I can still carry her with me and without the pain! These genuine leather wallets come in either a brown or black dye, and are fitted with six card slots and a flip-up ID space. You can choose to put your message on either the front or inside of this bi-fold design.

    Buy it from Etsy for $59.88+, shipping included.

    You, counting down the seconds until your package arrives.
