It’s that time of year again when we start to get into the Christmas cheer & buy all our festive goodies and gifts. This year more than ever, small businesses need your support! With the huge amount of lovely creative gifts out there it's often hard to choose just the right ones for friends & family, so I’ve compiled a little list of some of your gorgeous recommendations and my favourite little shops. But remember, you don't have to just buy gifts for other people! I’m sure you can find a little something to treat yourself with…
Have a scroll through these amazing small businesses and show them some love!
Get over to Bella's website to order yourself a hand drawn custom design or patterned phone case! They are so gorgeous and just what every phone needs!
Elizabeth FJE Design
An AMAZING designer (Cooksongold designer of the month in-fact) and gorgeous lady! Some stunning very unique and beautiful jewellery designs to check out from this small biz. Having a browse won’t disappoint and you definitely won’t find anything similar.
Homemade by Lindsay
Ok, these handmade pots are so amazing! Gifting these brings so much joy… the faces just light people & spaces up. Adding even more character to plants these pots will make any house plant addict (my mum for sure) smile :)
M by Emily
Emily is a 2020 fashion graduate who crafts the most adorable gifts. Personal fave has to be her colourful advent bags but hurry they are only available until 20th November!
Millennial Menu Shop
Gorgeous gorgeous hand painted kitchen utensils & stunning foodie prints! Perfect gifts for all the food lovers & homeware gurus out there. Go check out her etsy for some adorable designs to suit any home. Lovely gal with lovely gifts.
This beautiful small biz creates handmade perl powder clay masks! Made from natural British clay, products are packed with powerful botanics to give you that confident glow. Such a lovely gift idea alongside their wonderful Christmas cards. The skincare ranges are packaged in glass meaning that recycling/up-cycling is very easy and what’s even better is, you can return the glass pot for free & receive a 15% discount on your next order!!
The Indy Box
Boxes filled with independent beauty treats?! Is there any need to say more… no, but I will (sorry)! You can either subscribe to a monthly box or a choose the one off payment option to gift boxes to family & friends. Such a brill idea especially when life is a bit samey at the mo… a nice surprise is always welcome!
Candles, candles, candles, who doesn’t love a candle!!! These soy wax & essential oils candles hand-poured in Hertfordshire will be a crowd pleaser. Gorgeous scents, lovely packaging and just one of the best Christmas gifts that keeps on giving.
Of course, my Christmas biscuits had to slide in here at the end! Dispatch dates are up on the shop all the way until the end of December! Go grab some German Christmas Biscuits made from an old German family recipe which I have developed to now be vegan! Woohooooo
Remember to shop small this year - an actual person will do a happy dance! Happy Shopping Piggies x
