I’m always on the hunt for the best gifts for my friends and family especially for Christmas. While birthdays and random gifts are so much fun to look for, Christmas gifts are my favourite. All of the best goodies are released at this time of year and you can’t help but find cute and practical gifts for just about everyone. There are so many great independent makers and shops out there - I’ve made it my own personal vow to buy as many of my planned gifts from folks like these.

I search high and low for these fantastic pressies so I thought I would share my favourite independent shops here, there and everywhere. I can personally recommend each and everyone of these companies. Happy Shopping! xx
