Etsy has released its annual Year in Review, which takes a look back at the trends that were most popular in 2021 and predicts trends for 2022.

According to the report, one thing that continues to be top of mind for users is fostering meaningful connections, such as with their local communities. Consumers are also continuing to shop with intention and spending more time in nature. Appropriately, the top search terms on Etsy for 2021 were “personalized gift,” followed closely by “Mother’s Day gift” and “Father’s Day gift.”

Along with getting outside, more people are also continuing to think big and look to the stars—in fact space was one of the most popular trends for children this past year. Over 2021, the platform saw:

  • 41 percent increase in searches for space-themed wallpaper
  • 20 percent increase in searches for space-themed kids’ or baby items
  • 51 percent increase in searches for fairy items
  • 39 percent increase in searches for mythical creatures or beast items
  • 22 percent increase in dragon toys
  • 64 percent increase in in emerald green items

Based on these results, Etsy predicts Emerald Green will be the color of the year for 2022 and that dragons and mythical creatures will continue to be most popular.
