Skip Amazon: 11 Indie Gifts to Give InsteadShop is an experiment from the biz minds at Jezebel (so to be clear, this is not editorial). Every once in awhile, we'll bring you content about unique products or stores. Today's contributor is Erica Cerulo from Of a Kind, an NYC-based startup that curates products from fresh, independent designers.

The process of Amazon-ing all of your holiday gifts feels the opposite of special-even with free super-saver shipping.

And that's exactly why you should get yourself over to Of a Kind: Everything on the site, started by my college pal Claire and I in 2010, is limited-edition and made by an up-and-coming designer just for us. Hell, each piece comes with a certificate of authenticity signed and numbered by the person who made it-which serves as proof to your loved ones that you went out of your way for them.

Shop now through Sunday, December 9, and use the code OFAKINDLOVESJEZEBEL for a whole 20% off. Now you don't even have to go searching the internet for a coupon code.

Check out 11 of our holiday picks below.
