Novemblog #23 - Christmas gift guide (from independent businesses - all under £10).


It's so important to support independent and/or local businesses at this time of year when we're all looking for places to spend our hard earned cash. A great place to start is either Etsy or Not on the High Street who have an array of independent sellers selling beautiful, weird and wonderful products. One of the things I love about Etsy is that you can search for shops in specific locations, so it's super easy for me to find lovely Sheffield sellers.

I have picked out a few of my favourites which are all under £10 so they are great for stocking fillers or main gifts if you're on a budget this year (I know I certainly am!)

I bought Paul one of the map key rings when we moved in together, which shows the street where we live. I thought it would be a nice keepsake for us to always remember the first house we lived in together. I've also tried Ailey Mae's raw chocolate in the past and I can safely say it tastes incredible. It comes in a variety of flavours and you can buy bundles if you want a few bars at a time.

I love the idea of the self care kit, and I know a few people who would go wild for those Mean Girls pencils (me included!) I am also now seriously craving marshmallows... dammit! 

Let me know if anything tickles your fancy!


  1. This is honestly one of the best gift guides I've read so far (and believe me, that's quite a few!) I think it's great that you've focused on independent retailers as they're so often forgotten about yet have some of the most unique products out there. I really like the look of the Harry Potter print and the map keyring :)

    1. Thanks for your kind comment! I had fun putting it together and thought I had found some lovely bits and bobs. x

  2. Great idea! I've just opened etsy and will look on there first for the last of my Christmas presents! x
