As usual, I have decided to shop small this Christmas, and by that, I don’t mean minimal gifting.  So, what does it mean to shop small? For me, shopping small means supporting local, independent businesses and brands.  As a small business owner myself, this is something that is super important to me and something I am really passionate about.  There are so many reasons why I believe you should shop small this Christmas, too many to list, so here are just a few...
 

1. Find unique, one-of-a-kind gifts

Alongside the magic of Christmas, time with the family, eating ridiculous amounts of food, and drinking copious amounts of alcohol, Christmas is a time for giving.  For me, there is nothing better than watching the people you love open gifts and that look on their faces when they see what’s inside.  However, one thing I do not enjoy is trying to find that perfect gift.  How do you find something for the man who has everything? How do I know they haven’t already got it?

 

Independent businesses offer unique, one-of-a-kind gifts that you won’t find in high street stores.  Thoughtful gifts are the best type of gifts and by shopping small you are sure to find something perfect for even the most difficult of family members!  For me, I love creating bespoke orders for customers and helping create something personalised and truly unique.  You know there will not be duplicate presents sitting under the tree when you shop small!
 

2. Excellent customer service

Small businesses are all about the customer, as without you guys we wouldn’t exist.  There’s no big marketing budget to get the word out there, so for many of us, word-of-mouth, reviews, and recommendations really do mean so much.  Small businesses get to know their customers, we can listen and adapt to meet your needs and really get it right.

 

The key to a small business is just that – small.  That means you get a more personable service and get to know the face behind the brand.  Not only do we deal with every order that comes through our doors, but we are also involved in many, if not every, aspect of the process.  From designing, making, packing, and posting your orders, it’s all on me.  I lovingly deal with each stage of your order and will only let it leave our doors when I am 100% satisfied that it meets my high expectations and standards.
 

3. Become part of the story

When you shop from a small, independent business you become part of our story.  Not only are you supporting a family, but you are also supporting a dream.

 

I would love you to join me in shopping small and supporting independent businesses this Christmas. 

With this in mind, below are a selection of gifts available for delivery before Christmas, if ordered before the 18th of December!

CUSHIE DOO

All my products are hand-printed using Eco-Friendly inks on to the last of the Scottish Linen produced in Fife before the mill closed earlier this last year, so are totally unique.

My new Storage Pots make great bread baskets filled with freshly warmed rolls - the perfect addition to your Christmas Table!

SOAP & PAMPER

Choose an individually wrapped bar of your choice from our limited edition, handmade, Natural Soap Bar collection.

We've relaunched Bar Humbug just in time for Christmas, which has Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Cedarwood & Clove essential oils.

The combination of these essential oils in this soap makes you think of Christmas sweets!  As there is a black and dark green pattern running through it looks like the old-fashioned street, the ‘humbug’. 

This explains why we named it ‘Bar Humbug’!


Each soap bar is handmade, uses natural ingredients, and is scented with essential oils.  All of our soaps are vegan-friendly, palm oil, and chemical-free. 

Unless otherwise stated, all of our soap bars have a minimum weight of 70g, in reality, they are much larger as we cut them by hand!

A seasonal favourite smells just like you have been baking gingerbread - a delightful mix of cinnamon, clove, ginger, caramel, and maple syrup with a hint of anise to finish - a true Christmas Classic!

MISTLETOE KISS MAPLE WICK LUXURY CANDLE

A break from the traditional spicy Christmas fragrances - our Mistletoe Kiss gives you a herbal, pine fragrance with subtle hints of spice - Greenleaf, pine, lime, and basil lead into a heart of jasmine, lily, and cinnamon gently closing with a woody base of moss, sandalwood, and amber!

Truly captures the essence of Christmas with a festive pine aroma unfolding with an intoxicating blend of eucalyptus, juniper, and hints of peppermint, nestled amidst a fresh, green heart of spruce, pine cone, and fir, while the warmth of sandalwood, resin, and woody undertones brings the fragrance to a close.
