There has been a lot of talk this year about buying small and I couldn’t agree more. Don’t get me wrong, Amazon is great and all but let’s not give ol’ Jeff all our money. So, with Christmas fast approaching, I thought I’d share a few small businesses that I love.
I may be slightly biased with this one but Marcie’s work deserves ALL the recognition (which its definitely getting)! Marcie creates the most beautiful illustrations which she has turned into cards, stickers, prints, bookmarks and more. Her Instagram is booming and I genuinely couldn’t be more proud of her. You can check out Marcie’s shop here.
simply katy prints.
I am well and truly obsessed with Katy’s gorgeous, colourful prints. There is so much to choose from on Katy’s shop, she creates amazing cityscapes which I think would make the perfect, personal gift. I’m also obsessed with her cocktail prints, I know if I had my own place I’d want one for my kitchen! You can check out Katy’s shop here.
You definitely can’t go wrong with candles and you’re bound to have someone in your life who is obsessed (there’s always one). YR Studios have such a wide variety of candles, with gorgeous packaging. They have different slogans on all of their candles, from wholesome ones to funny ones. I’m definitely going to be purchasing one or two for Christmas this year. You can grab yours here.
The wonderful Cally has set up her own jewellery business and everything is gorgeous. I’m completely obsessed with anything space/star related and I know its quite a big trend at the moment. Each piece is so dainty, perfect for layering or wearing on its own. My personal favourite is the Celestial Space Pendant Necklace. Check out Constellation Co here.
the couture cake company.
Couldn’t finish this post without including something food related. Who doesn’t love a sweet treat? The Couture Cake Company offer letterbox brownies, cookies, shortbread – you name it! Everything looks absolutely delicious and Christmas certainly is the best time of the year to eat as much as possible. You can shop The Couture Cake Company here.
