Making Gift Baskets For Christmas – Filled With Miniatures

I know, it is early, too early for the season! But making gift baskets for Christmas starts early if you want to fill them with miniatures!

Why am I claiming this? Well, because it takes a while to collect the right miniatures for a gift basket if you want to give it as a present to the miniature collector.

Or do you know exactly what your little niece, aunty, or even grandma likes? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Bye all means, then just wait. But usually, it takes some emailing/calling back and forth secretly to the parents or partners to find out which miniatures could totally surprise them for Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

I know that I was surprised when I received all these miniature kits from my family, that was amazing!

Today I am going to show you some of my favorite, Christmas-themed, miniature objects from Etsy.

And from now on until Christmas I will write some more once every two weeks or more. Yes, I am already showering you in Christmas,#sorrynotsorry!

 

1. FloralDecorMini.

Makes :ย 

Maybe you can guess it from the name: they mostly make miniature flowers, but also some miniature cake, food, plants, and an easter object. Most of them with a Christmas theme.

Some more info :

I have picked out a picture of miniature Christmas Ilex plants for you, but as mentioned above, this company makes so much more (Christmas related) objects. In fact, you could buy several objects from them at the same time.

Because they for example also have Christmas wreaths or table decorations. (oh my gosh, look at this! I don’t think I have ever seen anything like it!)

– Everything is made from polymer clay and/or cold porcelain.

– products are custom made and there is a waiting list.

– handcrafted and hand-painted with oil paints.

– the price is for 1 single twig and the vase is not included.

The Good And The Bad :

The good:

– fast shipping

– very affordable, cause of the craftmanship

– returns and exchanges accepted

– very detailed work

– she even sends pictures before she sends the product, just to be sure first that you like them!

The bad:

Believe me, I have looked and looked for negative reviews, I try to keep it honest, but I can’t find any! ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Final Opinion :

Seems like a very skillful crafter, I would buy from her!

 

 

2. Hobbymini.

 

Makes:

Tons of different things, a list:

– miniature cakes, food, pizza, bakery, cookies, donuts, beverage, fruit and vegetables, animals, tart and pies, cake, cupcakes. Miniature flowers, plants, pots, and vases as well. Also tableware, glassware, and even something like this: a miniature refrigerator with coke and bottled water!ย And more!

Some more info:

So, about the Christmas themed miniatures, this company definitely sells them. (also Halloween miniatures, but we will talk about those later, it is my favorite season honestly regarding miniatures ).

Place(s) To Buy: Etsy christmas gift baskets

Price: 7$ for 10 pieces

Overall Rank: on 11739 sales!

 

The Good And The Bad :

The good:

– returns are accepted ( exceptions are possible)

– protected for shipping with bubble wrap

– on almost 2700 reviews, there are only a few discontented buyers

The bad:

.- as it ships from Thailand, it might take a while to arrive, but that is not the seller’s fault!

– should mention when items are out of stock so that you don’t get other items then the ones in the pictures (saw 1 bad review about this issue)

My Final Opinion :

Don’t be fooled by a few negative reviews on her shop, because still getting 5 stars in general on 11739 sales is a fantastic result! Just one point maybe: be sure that you buy what is seen in the pictures and ask the seller about it upfront ๐Ÿ˜‰
