Small business Christmas Gift Guide

 
Here's some of our favourite picks for your Christmas shopping list this year. Remember to shop early as all of these businesses are run by individuals or really small teams. 
 
To be honest I could write the world's longest list of amazing small businesses...but I've tried to keep it to the ones I have personally bought from and or align with my own values as a brand. 
 
Happy shopping!
