Are you one of those super duper organised people who have all their Christmas presents bought, wrapped and ready to go under the tree months before or did you leave it to the last minute, panicking to find the perfect gifts for your family and friends? If it's the latter, then look no further, I am here to help! I have compiled a list of very lovely small businesses that you should definitely check out this Christmas. Not only will you get an exceptionally beautiful, hand crafted product if you buy something from a small business but you are doing an incredible thing in supporting the little guys. There's a lovely quote flying around that says,
"When you buy from a small business, an actual person does a little happy dance"
and I can't express to you just how true this is. So this Christmas please do support the small businesses as much as you can and I can promise you that you'll get a product that has been lovingly made with so much care and thought. So enough rambling from me, here are a few of my favourite small and mighty businesses.
Chroma Stationery is a super colourful and fun stationery brand founded by the ever so lovely Gabi. She creates beautiful personalised notebooks and diaries to satisfy all your stationery needs. I've bought quite a few gifts and things for myself (obviously) from her and am always so incredibly happy with what I receive.
Beau Tie is stunning luxury men's accessories brand created by the very lovely Emma. She hand makes each tie and also offers custom orders. I've been persuading my brother to get his wedding ties from her and he's definitely sold. I find shopping for men is always so difficult, so this would make such special gift for the man in your life. On a side note, if you love cats (which you should) then definitely check out her Instagram as she posts lots of pictures of her beautiful cat Snowy.
JARS OF HOPE
Jars Of Hope is wonderful charity organisation created to make an impact in the fight against human trafficking. All you need to do is buy one of their beautiful Jars. You get to choose a country, then choose the which Jar you'd like and 100% of the proceeds go to the charity related to the country you chose. Please do check out what they're doing and how you can support them.
Hello Stationery is a lovely little stationery brand created by the wonderful Elizabeth. If you want to buy someone something that will make them chuckle, then you've come to the right place. She creates super great cards, notebooks and some really cool wall prints. Definitely check her out and stock up on your Christmas Cards.
And lastly, of course, me! I am currently selling a few Christmassy gift sets on my website that I would absolutely love for you to check out (and maybe even a cheeky little purchase). I've created four super cool little denim pouches that I am in love with and two other gift sets including a top and a choker. Did you like what I did there? A little bit of self promo never hurt anyone.
All the love Hx
