As you might already know Etsy's gift guide is a great collection of favorite picks from the Etsy Administration. Did you know they recently added a Hot List of different trends to their gift guides? The Hot List categories were picked by what items are most frequently searched and purchased on Etsy.
Does your work fit into one of the categories? Make sure you add the appropriate tag then. When I saw the woodland category I realized I had quite a few items in my shop that would fit but didn't have that tag.
A little snooping around in the gift guides can give you some ideas of what people shop for the holidays. Why not create your own gift guide on your blog featuring some of your favorite sellers or a gift guide of your own products in helpful shopping categories?
