Gift Ideas from Small Businesses

More than ever before small businesses need your support, this virus and all of the restrictions in place have really made it difficult for many businesses to survive.  So this year, rather than sharing any gift guides or favourite places to shop I am going to share some images from some amazing small independent businesses. You can browse through this post and see if there is anything that you like, I've tried to include a good mix of clothing, jewellery, accessories and homeware. 

Of course it's easier to just pop some stuff into your basket on Amazon but that's just more money going to the richest of the rich. If you can, take some time to browse places that small independent brands are listed and try and spread the wealth and throw a small business a hand. Honestly, when someone orders from my Etsy shop I tell my boyfriend and some of my family, immediately! "Someone likes my stuff!!!"




I've collated a mix of jewellery, clothes and homeware. It was really difficult to capture how fab the makers are with just one image of their stuff so please save this post to return to and spend some time browsing. They will be great for Christmas presents if you catch their final postage dates but also show them some love and support on socials help them out in this tough time. Maybe keep them in mind friends birthdays next year and some of your own self indulgent treats.

I hope you find a maker that you love! There are so many incredibly talented independents out there, it can be difficult to find ones that suit your style but hopefully my selection is something you can save and come back to the next time you are shopping for gifts or a little treat for yourself.
