Editor’s Note: This giveaway is over, but Taea Made is still selling cool stuff. The 12 Days of Christmas will return in December and I host monthly giveaway on the second Tuesday of each month, so check back!
Today’s 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway is from one of my favorite local artists and collaborators, the lovely Emily from Taea Made. I love to give something handmade at the holidays and the products at Taea Made are some of the best.
They combine traditional crafting techniques like embroidery, sewing and painting with cool fabrics, unexpected color combinations and cheeky imagery. This is whip-smart modern crafting with a contemporary touch.
You can shop for Taea Made products in the Taea Made Etsy Store or see Emily’s work in person at several locations in North Dakota and Minnesota, including Unglued in Fargo, Kittsona in Grand Forks, Boucle Yarn Studio in Fargo, Eco Chic Boutique in Fargo and Bismarck, Paper Hat in Minneapolis and A Creative Outlet in Bismarck.
There are lots of unique, handmade gifts at Taea Made (and she does custom orders, too!) but here are a few of my absolute favorites.
Great Gift Ideas:
Lace Embroidered Earrings:
There are several types of jewelry available at Taea Made, but these delicate, dangly earrings are my favorites. I love how they’re light as a feather but also somehow substantial. They’re available in a variety of colors and they’re just right for every lady on your list.
Modern Hoop Art:
Remember those embroidery hoops that your grandma, mom or great-aunties used to huddle over? Taea Made gives this old-school art a totally fresh look. Pop culture references, saucy sock monkeys and geeky puppies in hipster glasses bring hoop art into this century with a smile and a wink.
And if you have a photographer on your list, every shutterbug I’ve ever met covets this piece. It’s also available in a pillow…which brings me to…
Decorative Throw Pillows:
I’m in love with Taea Made’s pillow collection. The reversible throw pillows are an easy way to change the look of a room and the color choices are eye-catching and versatile. Some of the best-loved hoop art images are also available in pillow form and you’ll also find more lovely embroidery, witty sayings to liven up a master bedroom or a guest room and super popular regional pillows featuring city names, states and ZIP codes.
