Small Business Online Christmas Gift Guide

Small businesses need our custom more than ever this year and the effects of the Pandemic run riot over the retail industry, but it can be hard to know where to start. I asked for your suggestions on Instagram and compiled some of them together with a few of my personal favourites so that I could perhaps inspire you to shop small this Christmas. There are lots of things to choose from for pretty much anyone on your list and to suit any budget. Together we can all chip in a little this Christmas to help save small businesses (and the jobs they provide) - think of it as doing something nice for your neighbour, just when they need it most!

These small businesses are in no particular order, so if you don't see something you like or that fits into your budget, just keep scrolling... 

You may recognise this business as it's my local coffee shop/lifestyle store and I go there a few times a week. They literally sell just about anything you could think of, all from Nordic designers & suppliers including artwork, candles & diffusers, homewares, fashion items & accessories, jewellery and so much more. If you get a chance to visit them in person, you'll also find a pretty amazing selection of Nordic foods & sweets for sale that make great stocking fillers, but in the meantime, these are the gifts on my radar from Blåbär this Christmas.

Opari Design was suggested by an Instagram follower and it's such a cute brand offering beautiful belts and accessories for dog lovers. Matching belts & dog collar sets are just one of the unique things they offer and the gorgeous leather belts are perfect for the person on your list who has absolutely everything whether they love dogs or not. That said, if you do have dog lovers on your list, the key rings are so cute and perfect to give as gifts or to stuff in stockings!

I came across this fun brand on someone's Instagram feed (consider me influenced) and I loved it immediately. It's the perfect place to find a unique gift and everything they sell is so cute! I had a hard time narrowing down picks for this gift guide, but these are my favourites... The prints are available in multiple sizes, either on their own, framed or framed without a mount and to be honest, they might be my favourite gift idea this season.

Here's another brand I found on another grammer's feed selling beautiful Scandinavian things, mostly for the home. Located in Suffolk, Vanil has a beautiful offering and you'll probably want to treat yourself to something as well while doing your Christmas shopping.

Another suggestion from an Instagram follower, Tiny Silver is an online jewellery store selling - you guessed it... Tiny silver. Delicate, dainty jewellery is what's on offer for both adults and children. For something extra special, choose one of the pieces that can be personalised.

Earlier this year during the first lockdown I saw a Watson & White sweatshirt on an instagram post and ordered it immediately (influenced again!) - it's been one of my favourites ever since. This is such a fun brand, offering lots of clothing & accessories options that are perfect for gifting this holiday season!

Last, but certainly not least is Rose Mae Jewellery. I started ordering accessories from Rose Mae Jewellery last year and the pieces I have are some of my favourites! Since then I've been following Rose Mae on Instagram and she has impeccable style, so check her out! Rose Mae Jewellery is the perfect small business to shop if you're looking for fun jewellery & accessories on a budget. Everything on this gift guide is £25 or less with most of them being under £20. Perfect for wrapping up and putting under the tree or for filling stockings, the pieces on offer are fun, stylish and on-trend!
