The Etsy Design Awards are Etsy’s first-ever global award program. Etsy is showcasing the work of creators from around the world. #TheEtsies highlight the best of Etsy and celebrates the talented makers behind the winning products.
Etsy narrowed it down to five different categories: Inventive Decor, Signature Style, Festive Celebrations, Earth-Friendly, and Creative Collaborations. Of the thousands of entries that were received from around the world, Etsy judges have selected 160 finalists. These finalists are in the running for a $15,000 USD Grand Prize or the top prize in their category.
Here are some of my favorites…

Artist's paint brush case, custom leather artist roll by Etsy Artist pliplopcom
I personally think this would be an excellent personalized gift for an artist you know and love. It would work great for pencils, ink pens or brushes. It should last a lifetime and the receiver would always remember you gave it to them. If you do creative work, you know how it is important to keep your tools in order. It is made of quality natural soft leather. Every pencil case is created by hand from start to finish.
