🎄 Indie Christmas Gift Guide 🎄

Indie Christmas Gift Guide
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I am joining in with the 'shop small, shop early, shop happy' campaign. So many businesses have been and continue to be affected financially by Covid. It highlights more than ever the need to be wise with your spending.
Shop small - I'm going to ensure that I shop small and support independent businesses who need support. Small businesses go that extra mile and ensure that you get the best products and the best service, so please do show them your support.
Shop early - Royal Mail have been amazing throughout this year, continuing to deliver across the country, but there is a likelihood that they will be facing overwhelm as we get nearer to Christmas, so please do consider shopping earlier to allow for delays.
Shop happy - Knowing you are helping the local economy or a small business, really does give you a feel good factor. If you can afford to just buy a card from a small business it really does mean the world and I guarantee that I for one genuinely do a happy dance...as do my children!
I am including a selection of lovely items for all of the family from big to small available at some of our favourite independents. We hope you like them! Remember not to leave it too late!
