I don't know about anyone else, but this is my FAVE time of year! I love everything festive & love celebrating small businesses, so here I have compiled a gift guide to inspire you all to shop small this Christmas.
We've all heard that saying by now; that when you buy from a small business that they do a happy dance. And I can confirm, this actually does happen. I personally get so excited when I hear my phone make that 'cha ching' noise from an order. So before you head straight to Amazon or other online retailers, think about what gifts you could buy from small businesses.
2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, so lets help put a smile on some independents faces. I have tried to choose a range of independents to showcase a range of products so scroll down to check them out!
