With the Shipshewana Flea Market and Ship-Chic Craft & Vintage shows, you have plenty of options for shopping for your Christmas list! Discover 9 great gift ideas, who they're perfect for and where to get them this holiday season!

1 - Christmas Decor

Holiday decor is a great gift for yourself or anyone who has a few bare walls to spruce up in their home like aunts or grandparents.

*Decorating Tip:  Buy a piece that can be swapped out for an everyday decor item then switched back after the holidays to keep your look fresh all year.

2 - Clothing & Accessories

Clothing is a great fit (no pun intended ha!) for that bestie of which you really know her style. Jewelry is a great option for that especially hard-to-buy-for friend.

Cutco Cutlery can be the great practical find for parents or siblings. doTERRA Oils are always good to keep on hand for a hairdresser, mail carrier or even that "oops I forgot that person" in your life.

5 - Fun Gifts

Tumblers (and how I love these green Grinches) make a fun gift for teachers ore bus drivers! Doll clothes are just right and so bright for nieces and your own kiddos.

8 - Buying in Multiples

If you're looking for more than one person and unique & fun Christmas finds, we've got those too! You can find a selection of items that are as unique as they are cute, but available in larger quantities than one that might be what you are looking for when you're buying for employees or cousins.

Well, if you have anyone left on your list, handcrafted items are always a hit. Meet the crafter and support a small business by shopping local for your siblings, babysitter or anyone else you may choose to send some holiday cheer to this season!
