Looking for your Christmas gifts early this year? Why not support some small businesses?
When you buy from a small business, you're not helping a CEO buy their 3rd home. You're helping someone pay their mortgage, a student pay for university or a mum to pay for those football lessons. Buying from small businesses means so much more to the owners!
Here's a few we LOVE and would love for you to support this Christmas:
Biscuits and Bites by Betty:
They do bespoke hand iced biscuits for any occasion.
Wedding favour's, baby shower's, birthday's, Thank you gift's, you name it, they can do it! Perfect for your biscuit loving friend! You can even personalise them with their name and fave colour- perfect for a stocking filler.
Sassy Shop Wax:
Creating AMAZING smelling wax melts, Sassy Shop Wax, is the perfect gift for that friend or family member that loves their smellys! They even have a 12 days of Christmas box available full with fragrances inspired by all things Christmas.
The Happy Newspaper:
Every single day there are people helping others and doing incredible things in all corners of the planet and the majority of them aren't celebrated, but The Happy Newspaper is a platform to share all these amazing things! They aim to bring a refreshing twist on what we typically know as 'news', reporting on positive changes and truly inspiring people. Who wouldn't want a subscription to this positive paper?!
Happy Gentle Designs:
Happy Gentle Designs offers a range of bespoke design services which include, branding, personalised gifts and weddings. Why not order a personalised tree ornament? Or even some Christmas cards with a twist?
The handmade personalised gift studio, which offers packaging personalised!
Our favourite is the 'you're on the nice list' bracelet holder!
Mallows Beauty is the ultimate destination for self-love. Instead of being faced with insecurities you need to ‘fix’, Mallows Beauty products will ‘treat’ your skin, body & mind, with amazing smelling scrubs, masks and peels. Oh and they donate 5% of all profits to mental health charities- whats not to love?
Lucie The Label:
Love to label? Love Lucie The Label. Offering personalised stickers for everything, Lucie The Label can transform any boring water bottle, laptop case and Christmas ornament into something special and personal.
Sam Jayne Design:
SJ Design is a fun creative design studio that offers modern, eye catching designs. From logo designs, to pattern designs to social media graphics! If you too run a small business (or big) SJ Design is the perfect place to go!
Starting with twelve brightly-coloured, super kitsch jar candles displaying their famous Florrie the Flamingo, Flamingo Candles has since evolved and grown to include unique, directional and personalised designs all with added sass. Every candle is designed and hand-poured, using natural soy wax, cotton wicks and the most yummy fragrances.
