A big congratulations to Nichole of littlebrownpen who curated our winning modern + fresh Etsy treasury collection I'd Marry the Guy Who'd Like These Things. Oh Wait, I Did.!  Seeing that it's the season for gift guides, we chose "Skies the Limit" as the central organizing theme for our challenge.  We were looking for unique titles with a cohesive arrangement and Nichole submitted several winners - she has a knack for coming up with imaginative titles that she then weaves into her selections.  The clean presentation of this modern gift guide for men really caught our eye, but it was her creative title that really drew us in with the story it told.  And might we add... your 'guy' has excellent taste!  As the winner from our Elite 16 Etsy Style Guide challenge, an item from Nichole's Etsy shop littlebrownpen will be featured in the top row of our next challenge.  Such a great collection Nichole - Congratulations!  

Honorable Mentions:

Choosing just one winner is never an easy job - we always start with a top 10 list, but honestly - it can sometimes blossom into a top 20 list!  Even during this busy time of year, we had 74 submissions.  We are continually amazed by the consistent talent on this team - each challenge leaves us feeling inspired.  We'd like to thank all of you who participated as you make this challenge a fun and lively place!

We often hear from people that they love Etsy, but sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the different options.  That's why we love Etsy gift guide treasuries soooo much!  It's like having a personal shopper who knows which shops to go to in order to find that perfect necklace you've been searching for.  We're all shop owners on Etsy and so we maintain a real time beat on what's new + fresh "Inside Etsy".  We want to keep you in the loop so we can help you find that "oooh-ahhhh" gift you've been looking for, so check out these 3 additional collections below! 

Do you have someone on your list who has a bit of a bohemian look + feel?  Never quite sure what to buy for them?  Let Anna of StudioByTheForest be your guide through the many unique gift options on Etsy with her gift guide Gifts For the Bohemian Soul.  In soft tones, she's pulled together a variety of selections to fit that artsy, carefree lifestyle where life is one great adventure.  A beautiful arrangement Anna!

Now don't forget about your friend who has a thing about red + navy!  A very retro, urban hip color combination, Jillian of JillianReneDecor has used color as her unifying guide in this modern Etsy treasury collection Red & Navy Gift Guide.   Sometimes you just don't know what to get someone, but you DO know that they love color - so why not start there.  The bold colors come together in perfect harmony as Jillian helps us navigate Etsy with her beautiful arrangement.  A real color palette pleaser Jillian!
