Amazon Handmade, the e-commerce mammoth’s medium for artisans to sell their handmade products, has just launched a gift shop, according to a press release courtesy of Business Wire.

Handmade, which launched in 2015, has rivaled companies like Etsy by offering a new outlet to attract creators and customers, all while being able to do it under the Amazon name. The store really holds firmly to its name; the site makes it abundantly clear that it accepts no pieces that are mass-produced.

While Handmade has been around for two years, the recent news coming from Amazon is the addition of the Handmade Gift Shop. The gift shop option seeks to make it easier than ever to buy a unique gift for someone difficult to shop for, according to Katie Harnetiaux, the Head of Marketing for Amazon Handmade, “The Handmade Gift Shop takes the stress out of shopping for gifts by providing thousands of one-of-a-kind, handcrafted gifts with the convenience and trust that customers already love about Amazon.”

The products come from artisans spanning more than thirty different countries, all fitting into ten categories which include clothing and shoes, wedding, jewelry and baby.
