The Small business Christmas Post.




Last year I did a Christmas post, my blog was live only 3-4 months, I enjoyed putting it together.
So I decided to make it for every Christmas!

Christmas, Is arguably the most busiest, craziest times of the year, and for massive corporate chains, easy pickings, In my opinion, same old tat year in year out.. I want to get my loved ones, my little family something made with love,thought,dedication & know that when I hand over my hard earned money,it's going to something, someone who deserves it, because of the true quality, time and energy they've put into creating.

This year I've picked some great small businesses, to get you really in the mood for Christmas.

Photoshop has never been my thing, but over the course of my adult life I've got to know Photoshop better & better, mostly because of my very talented husband, but I wanted to do this post from start to finish, so I did, I'm rather proud of how the collection of small businesses go together, If you click on the image, you'll get a greater idea of the details & sheer beauty of each item.




1 & 2 - Florafairweather- A collection of gorgeously bright, colourful knitted & crocheted blankets,booties,crowns etc.. I found FloraFairweather whilst trawling through Instagram, I'm so glad I did at that particular moment, I've purchased from Flora's talented creator before, & I will not be stopping any time soon!. perfect for the new baby in the family, or your own baby, A still loves blankets, & incorporates them into his playtime-so you see, they're not just for babies either!.


3- HELLOhenry- Individually designed, personalised, hand painted boxes and storage bags, I found HELLOhenry via another instagrammer, & I love the variety, there's something for everyone at HELLOhenry, whether you are after a new way to store the plethora of toys in your home or a super duper backpack. We just love this Christmas storage bag, perfect for keeping all of your little ones presents inside & really reiterates the joy of Father Christmas, with presents for them, hauled off his sleigh!, with a space to write your little ones name also, It's a purchase you can gain joy from year in year out!.


4-SausageandMissus- Stunningly crafty creations, from felt ball garlands, wonderful prints to confetti balloons, we love every single item in the Sausage and Missus store! we already have plenty on our "to buy" list! a gift to suit any child's tastes! or just to hang in your own home. We were recommended to check out Sausage and Missus, and I'm very surprised I have not seen her wonderful creations before.
Let Sausage and Missus take you on a fun,colourful, handmade journey!.


5- Nadinoo- Gorgeously designed women's wear & home wares, I had the pleasure of meeting the creator behind Nadinoo, earlier this year, we chatted about what we each did, myself an inspiring writer & with a busy little blog, and she, a creator of clothes, we both being modest ladies, played down our own talents, so when I dashed home, her website address in my hand, I was stunned at the beauty of her clothing! & her home ware items. It's also left me thinking differently about my own personal clothing style. Nadinoo's store Is a must visit if your looking for that special something for that special someone, or just to treat yourself! (we all deserve a treat!).

7- Copper & Solderunique home ware pieces that have an industrial, robust feel to them. Coffee dripper stands, hooks, rails & more! I discovered Copper & Solder, whilst ever trawling through my Instagram of an evening time, we love the industrial feel to her items, and have our eye on the coat rail ourselves!.
Ideal gifts for those who seem to have "everything" buying something for someone's home, can definitely be daunting, but let Copper & Solder take care of things & you'll have yourself the best gift you've ever purchased for the or someone else's home. (we promise!).


8- Bearded Colonel- A subscription razor blade service, for the bearded, or cleanly shaven love in your life, this is the ideal gift for them!.
with plenty of options you can choose how often you receive your blades & razor & should you ever need to- cancel any time as well.
We love the freedom, quality & design of the razor & blades, guaranteed to give your lover the best shave they've ever had, why would you get them anything else?.

10- Timbatree- A wonderfully crafted wooden tree, not just for Christmas, but for Easter even Halloween!, It stores away small enough to go under a bed or inside a cupboard! with 3 sizes to choose from, you can pick the right size for you & your family, & even personalise your tree!.
