The annual Countdown to Christmas is a twelve-week celebration featuring handmade and vintage gift ideas from artisans with shops on marketplaces like Etsy, ArtFire, and Shopify as well as standalone websites for artists on IndieMade and other venues. 

Each week, participating shops are invited to share up to three, family-friendly gift items to the link-up beginning Friday afternoon through Sunday evening. There is one rule: you must promote all the items posted on at least one social network during the week.

If you see something you like, don't wait too long to buy it! Many items are one of a kind and may not be available later in the shopping season.

But if you happen to miss out on one of these treasures, most of the artists often have similar items in their shops or will accept custom orders, so be sure to contact them for assistance.
