The Best Handmade Lingerie Gift Ideas from Etsy

  |   By Estelle Puleston

I love shopping with indie brands come holiday season. It feels good to support individual designers over big corporations where I can. But I also think that shopping handmade is a plus for your giftee. And what gift could be better than handmade lingerie?

The items you’ll find from these small brands are so much more unique and varied. That’s especially true since many designers can offer customizations. If you want a different color or a different size, you may need to ask.

Nowhere offers a bigger selection of handmade goods—including handmade lingerie—than Etsy. There are over 150,000 lingerie items here to choose from, which is fantastic. But also far too much for most people to sift through! So I wanted to share some of my top picks for gifting.

I’ve aimed to include pieces here for different budgets, different aesthetics, and different size categories. To help you shop local and reduce your carbon footprint (or avoid high shipping and customs fees), they’re sorted by location.

Remember that while some of these handmade lingerie items will be pre-made, others will be made to order. All Etsy listings include a “ready to ship in” time estimate. But of course, ordering as early as possible is less risky than leaving it until the last minute. Independent designers can’t pump out hundreds of products a day, but that’s what makes their creations unique!
