Newsflash: Etsy isn't the only handmade game in town. Amazon is now riding that train...and we're loving every minute of it. There are a ton of beautiful items selling on the site right now that would make touching gifts — and, yes, you can get them in time for Christmas. Because they are handcrafted, supplies are limited, so snap them up quick. They're so darned special.

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

Without further ado, here are eight handmade standouts that will ship in time for the big day — and they're all 30 bucks or less!

Special thoughts, ideas and drawings deserve to be kept in a special place. The laser-cut succulent design of this sturdy, hand-bound journal will surely impress and inspire your giftee. Inside are 160 blank pages just waiting to be filled. Crafted by independent, woman-owned Hereafter in Los Angeles.

"This is the most beautiful journal I have ever seen," declared one fan.

Make your mama smile every morning with this special 14-ounce camper-style ceramic Mama Bear mug. It's the No. 1 bestselling handmade mug on Amazon, and (hooray) it's microwave and dishwasher safe. It'll be hard to choose between the coral, plum and teal, but don't dilly-dally. These won't last! Brooke & Jess Designs is co-owned and created by two sisters.

"Mug was not only cute, but felt good in my hand," wrote a happy shopper. "Thickness was perfect. Not a delicate mug at all. It came boxed and would be perfectly giftable."

A little self-care brought to you by Charleston, South Carolina's Old Whaling Co. This Seaweed and Sea Salt Body Butter is made with moisturizing shea butter, organic sunflower oil and organic aloe vera with no mineral oils, parabens, sulfates, phthalates or dyes in sight. Just the good stuff. And you get two, so you can knock out two gifts in one go. (Or just keep one!) It's available in lots of great scents that the company claims ships faster than what's stated on the site, but the popular Seaweed and Sea Salt is guaranteed to arrive before Christmas if you order soon.

Fans give this body butter a 4.9 rating. But one shopper clarified, " Body butter nothin’! I use this on my face!...it doesn’t leave any shiny, oily residue and it made my skin feel really soft."

You'll feel good about gifting these safe, nontoxic, eco-friendly, brain-boosting Perched Natural Stacking Rocks. Great for the child who loves to build and the adult who needs a touch of Zen alike. The Montessori-inspired wood building blocks, handmade in Utah, are designed to promote developmental motor and problem-solving. And they're so easy on the eyes.

"A slightly sweet and woodsy scent. The stain and wood grains are beautiful," wrote a happy shopper. "These blocks are lightweight so I wouldn’t worry about them getting thrown or falling down (because kids!). We specifically bought these to use as part of a 'mindfulness' box of sensory items for my daughter who struggles with anxiety and emotional regulation. I’m pretty sure my husband and I will also be using this to decompress! I think I might buy a set for my husband to keep at work when he needs a stress break. Plus, it will look like a cool display on his desk or shelves when it’s not in use."

Ages 3 and up. Drawstring pouch included.

These special little shot glasses, hand-painted by Mexican craftspeople, are everything. Sets of four are still available in pink, yellow and white and each color possesses its own unique designs.

One fan wrote: "Was looking for some authentic tequila/mezcal glasses. These are beautiful. They are all a little different, but the artwork is gorgeous! Great product signed by the artisan."

The right candle can strike just the right note. This handmade 100 percent soy Christmas Tree candle — a top-seller at Amazon — smells of fir, pine, cedar and eucalyptus thanks to a festive blend of essential oils. It's certain to delight those who have an artificial tree but pine for a real one. Vegan and free of everything naughty (phthalates, parabens, cruelty), this delightful candle will burn for up to 70 hours.

Said one happy customer: "We didn’t get a real Christmas tree this year and we were missing the fresh tree scent but this candle definitely did the job! It smells as if we had a real Christmas tree in the house or even better!"

Amazon's top-selling Handmade Hair Conditioner is long-lasting, waste-reducing (the wrapping is biodegradable) and conditions using the natural wonders of cocoa butter, mango butter, aloe and honey, while quinoa protein strengthens and smoothes. And it carries a calming lavender scent with a hint of patchouli. It's handmade in New York's Finger Lakes region and available for just $13 with on-page coupon.

"Works and lasts," said a shopper. "I have waist length hair that is coarse, curly, and graying so a good conditioner is a must. ...I get the equivalent of three bottles of my normal conditioner...So, less waste, happy hair and happy woman. I'll be looking into the shampoo bar when the current bottle runs out."

Got a plant-lover in your life? These Monstera earrings are lightweight with a matte finish and a minimalist vibe. Made of brass with 14k gold plating, they drop to just an inch in length, so they'll always enhance, never overpower the beauty of the wearer.

"10/10," wrote one shopper. "So pretty! I love wearing these, they are the perfect gold color, and a nice dainty size."
