Are you looking for a personalized gift idea that’s handmade and unique to the recipient? Then you’ll love a new handmade shopping site I discovered called Hatch.co.
If you are a handmade artist specializing in custom embroidery, quilts or any other handmade product, you may want to check out becoming a vendor at Hatch. It’s a marketplace of hundreds of hand-selected innovative makers and artisans who create customizable products.
It’s simple and fun to customize or personalize an order on Hatch, and there are some really fun and unique handmade gift ideas! Think made-to-order jewelry, custom decor, beautifully designed gifts, and fashion and wedding accessories.
I ordered 8 personalized wooden blocks for Elliot from a vendor called Little Sapling Toys. (You can also order 5 wooden letter blocks or 11 blocks (or any combination of the sets) depending on the length of the child’s name.) Aren’t they fun?
Each of the letter blocks has a photo on the back with a word that starts with the same letter. You can order extra blocks with a star or heart on them to use as spacers.
I really enjoyed browsing the selection of customized gifts at Hatch.co. This concept is unique among handmade marketplaces because every product can be customized in some way! With a name, with a photo, with a date or a location. I was this close to ordering a fun Instagram photo pillow!
