We are all about nabbing a bargain, but this Black Friday weekend we wanted to share some of our favourite gifts from small, local and independent shops and designers. We believe it’s really important to champion independent businesses at this time of year, partly because we want to encourage creators to keep creating, partly because everyone loves receiving a gift with a more personal story and partly because we know just how wonderful it feels to receive an order for something you've worked really hard to create.
We've scoured the internet to find you our selection of the very best vintage-inspired, quirky and creative gifts for your family and friends. These gifts have been hand plucked by the three of us and we've curated this list from things we own, things we wish we owned or things that were made by people we’ve met in 2018!
Enjoy, and shop independent this Christmas!
