Local Christmas Gift Guide

posted in: Local Business | 10

Christmas shopping is looking a little different this year. Usually, we’re telling you about local craft fayres and giving advice on supporting small businesses. While the Christmas fayres have all been cancelled, there are still lots of local suppliers selling their work online.

We’ve put together our first ever Christmas guide, complete with links so you can easily support local businesses from the comfort of your own sofa.

(All businesses are listed alphabetically under their category – we love them all equally!)

Jewellery

There’s so much jewellery to choose from on the high street, but there’s nothing quite like a hand-made piece. We’ve split this category into two sections: metals (silver, gold, and platinum) and alternative (paper, wool and textiles). If you’re looking to commission a piece, contact the sellers direct.

Metals

Alternative

Artwork

We didn’t really know what to call this section, but ‘artwork’ seems to sum it up nicely. We have portrait commissions, digital artists, cartoon style sketches and witty illustrations. These artists offer a whole range of products displaying their work, from mugs and magnets to books and wall art. (We’ve done an awful job at explaining this one – you’ll have to take a look!)
