Holiday Gift Guide: Last Minute Handcrafted Gift Ideas

There’s less than a week until Christmas! If you’re still scrambling to cross those last few names off our holiday shopping list, you’re in luck! Mela Artisans not only has something for every personality, but also ensures you’re purchasing masterfully crafted, unique handmade gifts that support local Indian artisans. Here are a few creative ideas for a wide variety of tastes and styles. 

The Hostess

She cooks, she cleans, she has funny stories and even more hilarious jokes. She is the ultimate hostess who thrives off intimate dinner parties or lavish soirees. One of Mela Artisans’ decorative trays or coaster sets will offer her a fresh new way to present her notorious cocktails or delectable after dinner sweets. Add a bottle of wine or aperitif and you’ll have created a festive gift combination.


Fantasy in Indigo Tray $75.00  Chantilly Coasters $60.00

The TV Junkie

For the TV junkie, there is nothing more decadent than spending an evening on the couch enthralled by the latest TV series or movie classic. Create a plush, relaxing paradise with our luxe silk Bali Silk pillows. Movie night will never be the same.


The Chef

While most gift givers will focus on adding to the chef’s already well-supplied kitchen, why not surprise them with vibrant placemats and table runners to complement their culinary masterpieces. Our collections offer hand woven eco-friendly products that will make any dish even more spectacular.


The Accessory Queen

Shoes, purses, hats, belts – she has it all. Lucky for you, she is always looking for that next perfect item to add to her overflowing closet. Browse Mela’s jewelry and accessories for a distinctive piece that will wow her friends and dress up the simplest outfit. How about our Heera in Black/Mocha luxurious silk?  Or our Petals in Black/Gold Necklace with clusters of onyx set in shimmering brass?
