Hi Seller Community!
This week, we'd love to know the following:
What item is your top-selling during the festive season? Bonus points for sharing pictures of these items!
Additionally, we would love to hear what advice you would give people buying gifts for the festive/holiday season.
Feel free to share below.

Spa night gift boxes. I only make them this time of year and the husbands buy them all up. The boxes never make it to my online store because people start calling to reserve one in November!
Haute Beauty Guide
Our handmade ornaments are our top seller even year-round. We have three lines: quilts, Saints & Icons, and Fairies. Customers love to collect these and give these as gifts. We can't make these fast enough, and they never make it to our store either. Strictly made to order.
As far as advice, the notion of "It's the thought that counts" is still very true. Don't over spend your budget, just try to find something thoughtful that your recipient will really appreciate. You can't go wrong with a basket of favorite treats, or snacks for a "movie night" at home (chocolates, popcorn, snacks, fuzzy socks, wine and/or wine glass, coffee mug).
Sincere Heartfelt Gifts & Funny Retro Kitsch
My best sellers this time of year are my fine art holiday cards and the next year's nature calendars.
FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY
Totally. I tell people at art festivals it's the most cost effective way to get 12 of my photos! 😉 I actually have had people buy my 5x7 greeting cards to frame as well. I print those myself, so they're higher "archival" quality and more suitable for framing than the calendar pages are. But either one works for framing!
FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY
Our top-selling holiday item is probably our Holiday Baskets. It's the only time during the year when we make them, and they're really popular for office & client gifts. We offer a set menu, and we also make custom baskets. They're super fun and festive, packed with housemade goodies (Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies, Candied Pecans, Pumpkin Bread, Raspberry Cherry Jam, Hot Chocolate Mix...) and items from local makers.
As far as advice... these days, I'm leaning towards gifts that are an experience. Either a night out, or a gift card to treat yourself, or something like @Doran 's Spa Box.
