Christmas gift

Need a bit of inspiration for some gifts? Look no further!

As we come towards December of a year that has been so challenging for so many we wanted to share some of the wonderful products and small businesses that we have come across over the last few months.

Children’s art

These illustrations from Wee Wild Monsters will sit beautifully in any child’s bedroom and keep them smiling every time they look at them. They prints themselves celebrate kindness, imagination and gratitude. In a lovely muted colour palette they are A4 size.

Rainbow selection prints x 3 – £25

Time for tea

Let your kids join in with your tea and coffee time with these wonderful mini mugs from Brown Bear. Their beautiful designs will delight any child (and parent). These enamel Mini Mugs are hand-painted, individually wrapped in a gift box with natural filling and mini bear card with personalised message.

Comic books

For something a little different for kids who like to read, the Dungeon Fun series is perfect for them. Full of adventures and lots of laugh out loud fun these comic book style stories are a joy to read.

Comfort and sleep

Christmas is the time to spend all day in your pyjamas and we’ve got some fabulous ones for you. Whether they are for your toddler, baby or small child, being soft, organic and beautifully designed is the order of the day.

These Rain Cloud Pyjamas from Lister & Bruce are top of our list to keep children snug and comfortable throughout Christmas and this fantastic Sleep Thief babygrow is perfect for your little ones – with easy nappy/potty access and ‘footens’ that can roll down to keep their feel nice and warm.

For the home

We haven’t been able to get away this year as holidays have been cancelled but it doesn’t mean we can’t make our family feel we are all away. Smells are so evocative and this Mediterranean Fig Candle from Cath Collins is perfect for that smell to give you the feeling of holidays.

Scented candals

Mediterranean Fig Candle – £24

Treats

We love these biscuits from Snackzilla and this carton contains vanilla, raspberry and chocolate flavours. -With 40% less sugar than most sweet biscuits and free from artificial flavourings and preservatives they are biscuits that all the family can enjoy!

Biscuits

Trio of Oat Cookies – 12 x 30g.   £10.99

Leftovers

Christmas is a time of left overs (yum!) so why not get yourself some beeswax wraps from Kindpreneurs this Christmas so that you can pop that turkey sandwich away for later (don’t forget the pickled onion!).

Beeswax wraps

Beeswax Sandwich Wrap – £5

 

Wherever you are shopping please support small if you can, be that locally or online – it has been a tough year for many small businesses and every sale means so much.

Happy Christmas shopping – there are some fabulous, fun, original gifts around.
