Welcome to the exquisite world of Meadow and Fawn, where delicate creatures fit on your fingertips. The small sculptures are created by a lady named Alexis, whose inspiration comes from a “deep love for nature.” Through her online shop, she handcrafts the the tiny totems from polymer clay. Each is one-of-a-kind, and Alexis explains that there’s no assembly line to her work—she makes them all to order.
Alexis’ popular Instagram offers an awesome behind-the-scenes look at her sculptures. Everything—from the painting to the styling—is dreamy and a momentary escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Last week, I shared 35 illustrative holiday gifts you can only find on Etsy, so let’s switch gears this week and check out what’s on Society6—another platform for artists. Whereas Etsy often focuses on one-of-a-kind-pieces, Society6 offers a wide variety of the products that artists have their work printed on. The good news is that if you like an illustrator’s work, you can own it in many different forms. Society6 is a mix of expensive art prints to quirky clothing to fun stocking stuffers. (I even bought my shower curtain on the site!)
If you’re still searching for some last minute gifts, you’re in luck! Today, December 12, they’re offering 25% off and free shipping worldwide. Have fun!
It’s no secret that I love Etsy. Each week, many of my illustrated product obsessions come from perusing the online marketplace—so, it’s one of my go-to places for holiday shopping, too. If you’re just starting to buy for friends and family, here are 35 of my favorite illustrative gifts that you can only find on Etsy.
You can always use at least one deck of playing cards in your home, and illustrator Sarah Ferone has created a set that’s a playful twist on convention. Called Cocktail Hour, she pays homage to the “craft of the cocktail” and adorns the cards with fabulous portraits of people who hold muddlers, martini shakers, tiny umbrellas, and much more.

If you feel comforted by tiny animal companions, then RamaLama Creatures is going to make you real happy. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the adorable polymer sculptures are hand painted with a ton of intricate detail and finished with a glossy varnish.
Raminta is the lady behind RamaLama creatures, and she’s always had a fascination with the beauty of nature—her childhood was spent on the Baltic Sea shore. After graduating with a degree in photography, she dedicated herself to “mastering skills and perfecting design” of her characters. It usually takes days to create a single animal.
RamaLama Creatures are available on Etsy, but they’re often sold out. Follow Raminta on Instagram to see what’s coming up next!
