For meaningful, one-of-a-kind gifts that support independent makers—this year in particular—we vote small-batch over big-box, every time.
Enter Wescover, which ticks this box without even a need to leave home. The online marketplace allows you to browse offerings from individual “Creators” all over the globe—or connect with an artisan to create something bespoke. There are handmade wares of all sorts—ceramics, housewares, art prints, even handmade furniture and statement-making lighting by local designers—for everyone on your list, plus “buy now” offerings for the last-minute gifters among us. Or, you can filter by location to find makers near you.
Take a look at a few of our favorite picks to gift from Wescover this year, from an artist-made throw pillow to a singular brass hook—all under $250.
