We're obsessed with using Etsy to fill our gift giving needs. Buying unique presents directly from a worldwide marketplace of artisans and collectors allows us to skip the ho-hum box stores and avoid paying middleman mark-ups. Plus, we think it's pretty cool that this summer Etsy is sponsoring scholarships aimed at encouraging more women to enter the engineering work force.
To be candid, it can be a bit hard to sift through so many items -- so we're sharing an edited assortment of chic Mother's Day gifts suitable for every shopping budget.
