Gift Baskets

Repackaging or creatively curating commercial items for resale as a gift basket or set is not allowed in the Handmade category, unless it is part of a new structure (see below).

You may not group new items you did not make into a basket or set even when based on a theme, idea, or life event.

For example, a care package for new parents, a college student, or somebody experiencing an illness containing any new items you did not make is not allowed, no matter how caringly curated it otherwise is.

DO: Include only qualifying handmade, vintage, or crafting supply items.
DON’T: Include any mass produced item in a gift basket, unless it is part of a new structure.

DO: Creatively use mass-produced items to form a new structure where the items are physically attached to one another.
DON’T: Include newly-made, mass-produced items in a gift basket unless they are part of a qualifying structure.

This type of item is allowed on Etsy, if it forms a new structure:

If you are unsure whether your item or structure qualifies under Etsy’s Seller Policy, please email Integrity@etsy.com.
