It’s that time again!  Last year I found so many cute ornaments on Etsy and had so much fun doing a giveaway that I decided to reach out to a few different shops this year and do the same thing – so here are the adorable ornaments I found this year!  Instructions for the giveaway will be at the end of this post!  🙂  Click on the shop names to check out more items from their Etsy stores!  All the items are handmade and one of a kind – a perfect gift for the adventurer in your life!


How cute are these bike ornaments?  They can be ordered as a set or individually and are a perfect gift for the cyclist in your life!  🙂  Each ornament is a reproduction of an original watercolor painting created by Sage 8 Studio and if you think this is cute, check out the many other adorable ornaments this shop has available!


I absolutely LOVE handpainted compass roses – remember the giveaway from last year?  These are one of a kind hand painted onto an egg.  The images above are just 2 examples of the beautiful ornaments that are made at WirePaperPasteNPaint – check out the shop for many more handmade creations!


I LOVE anything that is repurposed and upcycled – look at these adorable ornaments that use reclaimed bike gears with added ribbon and charms to make a perfect ornament for the cyclist in your life!!


Know anyone who did a 5k, 10k, 1/2 or whole marathon…or just likes running?  Let them know how proud of them you are with this little running gingerbread man!  And of course the holidays wouldn’t be the holidays without having to decide if you were naughty or nice – and there’s an ornament for that too!  🙂

  1. That ornament is so cute!!! I love exploring new trails with my fur baby as you know. But this winter, I want to try hiking in snow. Just bought me some microspikes and doggy boots for Xena. Can’t wait to try! Each year, I get a new ornament for my tree and I hope I win this adorable ornament! By the way, I love the idea of giveaway! I might adopt it too. Thanks, Dana! 🙌

  2. Such cute and pretty ornaments! I love Etsy so much!

    I’m still working out the details, but I think I want to expand the daily one mile walk with Choppy so that the two of us have to walk 500 miles over 2017. It’s doable, but will definitely require some effort – and a lot of fun hikes. And it will be good for both of us!

  3. Last year I went snowshoeing for the first time and also went ice skating since i hadn’t gone in so long. I want to go hiking this winter as long as it doesn’t snow a whole lot and maybe go snowshoeing again! I went ice skating inside and it would be cool to find a place to skate outside!!
