Spread joy with JVN

Jonathan Van Ness

Jonathan Van Ness is an Emmy-nominated television personality, New York Times best-selling author, comedian, podcaster, hair stylist and activist. (Phew!) Plus, as someone who recently launched their own business, he also happens to know about the heart and soul that goes into one. “On Etsy, not only can I find something totally unique and special, it makes me happy to know that I’m supporting a small business at the same time,” he says. “I love spoiling my friends, family, and of course my fur babies with really meaningful gifts for the holidays.”

Erin’s source of holiday joy? “Shopping on Etsy means getting something rare and handmade while getting to support small businesses who value your purchase in a way that large companies aren’t able to.”
