Goodbye 2020, hello 2021! Etsy, the online marketplace for makers has released a look back on the past year, along with trends for the upcoming 12 months.
The site designed an infographic documenting the surge in everything from face masks and baking, to activities that include cross stitch. As families continue to spend time apart and through the holidays, Etsy has noticed an undeniable uptick in searches for thoughtful gifts, with “personalized” being a top contenter.
In a continuation of 2020, Etsy believes that 2021 will be about “creating connections to each other, to ourselves, to nature.” Get ready for “friluftsliv”, the Norweigan concept of getting outdoors and plenty of trends that will keep this concept at its core.
When it comes to kids in 2020, blast off into outer space! Etsy projects that being able to escape the virtual classroom and let your imagination run wild in outer space will be a hit this year. Look forward to public and private space programs heading to outer space, and check out the vast array of space-themed wallpaper and kids items to deck out your kiddos room in style.
