ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF GIFTMAS…
Supporting small businesses in 2020 is such a lovely thing to do, so I thought in addition to including lots of beautiful products from independent businesses and makers throughout all my other gift guides, I’d give them the spotlight for their own dedicated gift guide this year.
I love discovering new small brands to buy unique gifts from, whether through bloggers and friends on Instagram, on sites like Etsy and Trouva that showcase lots of different small sellers in one place, or discovering an independent boutique whilst visiting a new town. It’s such a lovely feeling to buy a gift for someone knowing a million other people don’t also own the exact same thing, and knowing that your purchase is supporting a creative individual or small team, rather than some overseas billionaire who avoids paying their taxes…
Enter this round-up of great gifts to help you shop small this year! I’ve tried to cover all bases – for him, for her, for them, for little ones – there’s something for everyone in this guide! I’ve also tried to keep mostly to UK makers and sellers – including some great small brands from my local area in South Wales.
See my ideas for some lovely small shops to support this year:
Annnnnnd that about wraps up my gift guides for 2020! I hope you’ve enjoyed them, whether you’ve used them for some ideas for others or to spoil yourself – and if you haven’t: DO, you deserve it!
Although giftmas might be done for another year, I’ve still got plenty more content lined up throughout December, so do keep checking back regularly for new posts this month.
