Gift Idea & Current Obsession: Podlings

Hey everyone! I hope you're having a great day! :] I wanted to take some time to showcase my new & cute obsession: Podlings. My sister's birthday was a few weeks ago & I was trying to figure out what to get her (she turned 19). I wanted to find something personal & meaningful rather than just going to Forever 21 to buy her yet another circle skirt. I was browsing the handmade gift section on Fiverr (a site where all items, services, etc. start at $5) & came across these beautiful, handmade Podlings

podlings


They start at the base of $5 each -- depending on what you want, the intricacy, certain types of yarn -- but it may be a little bit higher. I decided to get two because that way the shipping was cheaper. I had her design a bunny to replicate my friend's pet rabbit, Ceasar, & I also got a Totoro made for my sister, who is a huge fan of My Neighbor Totoro & pretty much all Hayao Miyazaki films.

These are completely handcrafted & made to order. Podlings are made with new non-toxic, non-wool materials. I'm seriously so in love with them that I would easily go back & buy more for some reason or another. I just wanted to highlight these in case this is something that you would want yourself or to give to others. Nancy knits them from scratch.

This is not a sponsored post. I purchased these myself. This is me sharing something I am genuinely obsessed with. If you have any interest in getting a Podling made or want to find out more, go check out Nancy's Fivver page. You can see more Podlings & get an idea of what a range she has.

Have you ever used Fiverr before? What do you think of these Podlings? I am so obsessed! :]

    So what exactly are they?
    I'm curious what your sister ended up doing with them.

    I plan on giving this Fivver place a quick look-see :)

    1. They are basically little plush animals. You can just put them on display or whatever. Fiverr is a great resource. :]
