Looking for etsy store recommendations for jewelry, accessories, design-y items and other gifts.

Sorry if this has been asked in some form already, I couldn't find it...
I'm absolutely sure I can find some fantastic gifts on Etsy but I'm very bad at searching there, especially when I'm not sure what I'm looking for. I'd love to compile a list of recommended shops (a la MefiMall) - I did check out the MefiMall list but I'm looking for even more recommendations. My ideal Etsy stores for gift shopping would have:
- Items such as: jewelry and accessories (for the ladies I'm purchasing for) in modern, vintage, or costume-y styles
- "Design-y" items (One guy I'm buying for is a graphic design student) - art/typography related items, neat prints, etc
- unexpected items that would make neat gifts that I wouldn't think of
- a decent amount of items for $50 or less ($30ish would be ideal)
So, do you have any store recommendations? What shop would you love to get a gift from, or where have you purchased items from that might fit these criteria?
Thanks in advance!
