One of the Christmas Gift Guides I have been most excited to share this year is my Small Businesses Christmas Gift Guide. Small businesses always need our support but this year more than ever. Over the past couple of months, I’ve come across some of the most amazing small shops, that sell some truly beautiful pieces.
Jewellery is one gift that many people love to receive on Christmas Day. I really enjoy buying jewellery piece from small businesses. I find the quality is normally amazing, along with the careful design of packaging and presentation. If you looking for simplistic pieces, with a gorgeous ancient art feel, then take a look at Agape Studio. Each piece comes in a gorgeous vegan leather pouch packed perfectly for under the tree. I find smaller shops think about their impact on the environment more, whether it’s using recycled metals to using cardboard packaging. OMCH is another beautiful jewellery brand making stunning simple pieces from responsibly-sourced metals. Again they have eco-friendly packaging, which I think is brilliant and something all brands should do.
There are so many talented illustrators in the small business world making it so hard picking only a couple. In the end, I managed to pick 5 small shops that you have to take a look at. Two of these shops sell beautiful recyclable wrapping paper sheets that come in beautiful designs.
Every home needs a couple of prints and they make amazing gifts. These four shops Annie Brougham, Wildflower Studios, Lily Rose Co., Hannah Cromwell make beautiful prints which are all beautiful. I think there is something so nice about buying prints from small businesses. It means you’ll have something unique in your home that can’t just be brought off the high street.
If you are looking for friendly wrapping paper, tags and twine then take a look at Cadeaux paperwork. Their designs are beautiful and would make any gift looks sensational under the tree.
Everyone needs a little pampering so why not treat a loved one and make their evening that little bit more luxurious. Candles & diffusers are always a massive hit for Christmas favourites and they make your house smell amazing. Arya Candles* sell essential oil candles & diffusers that are ethically and socially conscious. From Candles to Silk Scrunchies, if you know someone who ties their hair up they need these in their life. Silkenberry sells beautiful silk products from scrunchies to pillowcases. Silk is one of the best fabrics for your skin and hair. Why not treat a loved one to a little luxury.
Hopefully, this has given you a couple of ideas for small shops you might want to take a look at. I’d love to know which small shops you are currently loving. If you’re looking for more conscious gifts then take a look at my Conscious Christmas Gift Guide.
