2020 has wrecked havoc on pretty much every business in the UK, but especially the small, independent businesses. Shopping small and shopping local has never been more important than it is now. So, for my Christmas Gift Guide this year, I am focusing on some fantastic independent small businesses to bring you some incredible gift ideas this Christmas.
Irresistible Gift Boutique
The lovely Claire is the owner and designer of Irresistible Gift Boutique. Selling the most beautiful lingerie designed to make you feel irresistible inside and out. The beautiful Blossom Lingerie Gift Set* would make the most perfect gift for someone special this year. The Gift Set includes the Blossom design bra and 2 pairs of matching shorts.
Delicious Body Skincare
Delicious Skincare is a range of 100% natural, vegan, cruelty-free skincare, including Black Tea Body Scrub and the new range of body balms. Both the scrub and balms are available in natural, mint and coconut range. They would make perfect stocking fillers for anyone who loves a bus of self-care and pampering this Christmas.
I love the idea of Il Gusto’s gift collection for this Christmas. A choice of novelty shaped bottles, including a star, Gingerbread Man and a Christmas Tree, all filled with your choice of spirit or liqueur! I was very kindly gifted my own gift collection from Il Gusto. I opted for the Stacking Gin Tower*, with Gin, Lime and Basil Gin and Raspberry and Rosemary Gin – OMG, it is a taste sensation, and perfect for a cure gift idea this Christmas.
Created by the lovely Lisa, Mindkompass provides a range of products to help alleviate stress. After the year we have all had, many people would benefit from some methods to help manage stress and anxiety. The Mindfulness Exercises Set*, Self Discovery Card Deck* and Energy Cards* together would be such a thoughtful gift to give to anyone this Christmas.
As you can see, there are so many incredible small independent businesses out there. I hope I have given you just a taste of some unique and individual gifts you can fing this Christmas by shopping small and supporting independent businesses at a time when it really does matter.
Will you be shopping small this Christmas? Have you got any favourite independent businesses you want to share? Let me know in the comments.
