Being an independent brand ourselves, we know how important it is to support other creators and makers on their journeys. Even if it's just a like, follow or share on social media, it means so much to smaller businesses when they know that people love their work. We wanted to share a few of our fave indie businesses with you ahead of Christmas, so that when you're doing your shopping you can keep them in mind. Think colourful jewels, cheeky cards, statement denim and loads more lovely stuff... ✨✨✨
Lily at The Draw Store designs these fabulously fun Christmas cards locally in Birmingham. They're so unique and the quality is outstanding (we can vouch!) Your friends will love them! 🍹
Say hello to ethical, thoughtful and unique jewels made by Rosie in London. We especially love these colourful signets (and yes, there are more shapes available)! She also offers personalised pieces which is ideal if you want to add an extra thoughtful touch to someone's gift 🎉
Think flowers, squiggles, shells, bubbles and lots more quirky shapes! These colourful candles are all hand-made in Edinburgh using sustainably sourced soy wax that's free from paraffin ✨
You can’t go wrong with a box of brownies! These gooey, delicious bakes will be posted straight to their door, and yes, there are vegan options! 🌱 Just so you know, Bad Brownie ship across the whole of the UK.
How beautiful are these dried flower displays by our talented friends, Frog Flowers in Manchester? 💐 These, plus more colourful dried and fresh bunches, are available to buy on their website - we want them all!
Tort create the most beautiful resin hair clips, which make such a lovely gift for your friends - or a fancy stocking filler. Every design is so unique and there are lots of colours (and even the odd glittery style) to choose from! They’re all made in London 💕
Ella creates thoughtful cards, prints, bags, mugs and more. Her designs are fun and creative, and she loves using bright colours (so obviously we’re obsessed)! These prints are some of our faves! 🌈
These cheeky Christmas cards will make everyone smile! ✨ They're made by the very talented Sophie and Zoe, who also sell stationary, cushions and lots of other lovely bits for your home.
Denim Stories repurpose pre-loved denim, sourced sustainably from thrift shops and markets. Each style features a customised design to the back that gives it a boho feel. ✨ These jackets are such a unique and gorgeous gift 🎁
Looking for beautiful jewellery for someone you love? ChloBo have so many gorgeous designs. All of her jewels are inspired by her travels to Bali and made in the UK. Think pearl bracelets, charm bracelets, gold-tone necklaces and lots more ✨
We love these snowy Christmas cards by Zoe, an illustrator living in London! 🎄 She has a few more festive designs on her online store too in case you wanted to send a variation of cards (we would)! 🎅
