While I'm ashamed to admit just how much time I spend "fake shopping" online- you know, filling up a cart then closing the browser before checkout- sometimes actual shopping must be done. And while I've been making my Amazon wishlist utterly ridiculous (anyone wanna buy me the new car I built on the Mazda website?), I also peruse sites enough to know where you can buy some cool and unusual gifts, while supporting talented artists, musicians, and/or charities.
Below are a list of some of my favorite sites that either have great gifts to give, or links to other sites where you might find that perfect and unique something.
T-shirts, art, wallets, necklaces and more from BoyGirlParty
Holiday Matinee's new book I Swear To Good You Are God At This (or any other of the gifts in their online store)
T-Shirts from Sezio.org
Prints from Kardos Photography
Indie musician designed t-shirts from Yellow Bird Project (or coloring books!)
Digital music on Think Indie from local stores like M-Theory and Lou's Records
Crafts, goods, and gifts from e-tailers on Etsy
