Just in time for the holiday season, actress Busy Philipps collaborated with some of her favorite designers from Amazon Handmade to create a collection of artisan gifts. The collection includes home decor, personalized stationery, and even jewelry that will arrive in time for Christmas. We spoke with Philipps about the inspiration behind the collection, who she's planning on gifting the pieces to, and why she loves the holidays.
"My love language is gifts," Philipps said. "I love giving them, I love getting them, and I love being really thoughtful about gifts." That's why she decided to create her very own collection of meaningful and affordable gifts, many of which she co-designed with the Amazon Handmade makers.
Keep scrolling through to check out all the hand-crafted, under-$60 pieces from Busy Philipps' Amazon Handmade collection that would make great gifts this holiday season.

Philipps likes to put stickers on all the reusable water bottles in her house to tell them apart, so when she saw Kathyphantastic's designs, she was immediately drawn to the whimsical options. "She already has drawn all the things I love in life, like margaritas, queso and dip, chocolate chip cookies," Philipps said, adding, "She's my favorite." The pair also co-designed a sticker of Philipps' goldendoodle, Gina, that would make an awesome gift for any dog lover in your life.
All of Kathyphantastic's stickers have a matte vinyl finish, and they're waterproof. Since prices start at $4, we'd recommend adding a bunch of stickers to your cart and using them as stocking stuffers.

Another standout piece from the gift guide is the Amsha Bilobilo Woven Basket for $56. "I love the baskets from Amsha because I love all baskets," Philipps said. "I put everything in them, I use them all over the house, I can never get enough baskets."
The baskets are made in Rwanda, and each one is hand-dyed and woven by the maker. They come with a loop attached to the back, so you can either hang them on the wall as artwork or use them for storage. If there's someone on your holiday list who loves organizing their home with bins and baskets, this is the perfect gift.

While Philipps loves all the pieces in her collection, she's especially excited about the personalized notepads and cards from Fairmont and Grove Paper Co. "Years and years ago when I first started Cougar Town, Courtney Cox gave everybody personalized notecards for her Christmas gifts to us, and I remember at the time thinking, 'That is the classiest gift you could ever give someone,'" Philipps said, adding, "And so, when I saw the Fairmont and Grove Paper Company, I was immediately brought back to that gift."
Full disclosure: Amazon can't guarantee that the stationery will make it on time for Christmas, but they will arrive within a few days of the holiday. And personalized stationery makes a thoughtful gift, regardless of the occasion.
