Elm Studios Etsy Shop Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED



Hey everyone! My next review and giveaway is for Elm Studios. Elm Studios is one those fantastically creative Etsy shops that once you stumble upon it you just appreciate the talent and hard work that goes into the gifts. Elm Studios specializes in handmade personalized gifts. After much deliberation, because it did take me forever to pick one, I felt all of the pieces were so adorable and wonderful, I ended up choosing the Dream bowl from her "Remember To..." collection.



I really do love this bowl. It's small, about the size of your hand, fingers stretched out and all, but it really is a lovely piece. As the website says: "This whimsical piece is imprinted; painted and glossed. The word “dream” and the tree are painted in chocolate brown with small little green leaves sprouting from the tree. It measures 4.5” diameter. It’s perfect to hold your rings, earrings, or any other small trinkets."

I love the design and the detail of the plate. It's very simple yet still perfect and just enough. I would argue that you can't put many trinkets in this bowl because I don't really want to hide the design. I might hang it up if I can find a way to do so.

Another great thing about these gifts is that they're handmade to order for you. Mind you this means you have to wait 1 to 2 weeks to ship, but it is totally worth it. Again, as the website says: "Each handmade piece is hand-etched or imprinted, making each one unique and special. Please allow for small variations in your piece.

Moms, you will looove this site. Because it does have a lot of great gifts like this but also a lot of great gifts for the family and for wedding gifts! Two collections are "Wedding Bliss" and "Family Traditions" one great family gift I thought was very cute was this one:



So cute, and yes, you don't buy that Milius family one (unless that actually is your last name the, go for it!), you actually personalize them! Same thing with the wedding ones, in fact most of the gifts from Elm Studios you can personalize. That makes it great for you to keep as a keepsake or a more personal, less generic gift to give to newlyweds, friends, or family. They're really great.

Overall, I love Elm Studios, in fact I'm going to go and say that this is one of my new favorite Etsy shops, the gifts are just so creative and lovely. Definitely something for everyone to find on here, especially if you need to give a gift and you're really stumped on what to get.
