I always post a Christmas Gift Guide this time of year filled with lovely independents I discover throughout the year. This year has been filled with lots of online exploring and plenty of independents expanding online for the first time. It is more important than any previous year to do your shopping with independent brands, UK brands and brands you love. Buy thoughtfully not excessively and spread some love.
Wine Bottle or Tumbler
The lovely Lucy from my networking group the Coven become a twice over entrepreneur by coming up with these during lockdown. A way to keep your wine cool/warm during your socially distance park meetings.
Speckled Paint Pallet
For anyone artist minded Sugarhouse Studio Collection is dreamy. Hand carved organic ceramics that are perfect inspiration for any painter. They do twice monthly drops sign up to the newsletter to be in the know.
Miss Your Face Notecards
An etsy find, a Manchester letterpress studio with some pre-made note cards to make you smile. Send me some lockdown love notes.
Practical for this time of year for your many candles and cosy moments. Plus I am loving the decorative boxes to then stash things in afterwards.
Chardonnay Barrel Candle
I love rewined. Such a clever candle brand that keeps on giving. From their classic wine selection they now have cocktail scents and new containers to choose from.
Striped Ceramic Storage Pot
Time for some decorative organising. A hand thrown ceramic pot, then hand painted with a simple design. Use it in the kitchen, bathroom or wherever you need it.
Small Choices Print
So many wonderful motivational artwork has come out of this year. Find some choice words that speak to you and stick it up for all to see.
Pink Berry Gin
A lovely nip I discovered whilst breezing through the market in Camden. If you want to get a bit merry this is an easy way to do it.
Earrings & Scrunchies Gift Box
The ultimate team up, Jade partners with some great small businesses so you can get a pair of her earrings and another lovely something all wrapped up with a bow. I choose this one with a treat from we made this studio another favourite of mine.
Something for the kids, or kid at heart. Maybe just a car lover. These quality wooden toys are made to last and enjoy for generations.
