Hi everyone! It feels like it’s been so long since I’ve sat down and written a blog post, when in reality it’s only been a couple of weeks. I wanted to take a little break from it after taking part in Blogtober. Whilst I enjoyed doing it, it was a lot of work whilst working full time and working on my small business’ Christmas collection, so a little break was much needed!
I’m back today with the first instalment of my Christmas gift guides. I can’t believe it’s that time of year already – it feels like I’ve only just posted last year’s guides! This one is all about supporting small businesses this year, and I have some fantastic ones featuring in today’s post. Let’s get into it:
Run by the lovely Tiffany, Bear’s Brownies & More is one of my absolute favourite etsy shops. They sell a huge range of homemade brownies and blondies, including some delicious Christmassy flavours. Some of my favourites are the Milkybar brownie, the Strawberry delight brownie and the Ferrero Rocher & Nutella brownie. These would make such a lovely gift for pretty much anyone – everyone loves brownies, right?
Luna Celeste is an online store that sells beautiful handmade jewellery pieces. There are lots of dainty earrings, rings and bracelets available, including crystal intention bracelets. These are all so affordable too and would make lovely main gifts, or there’s plenty of stocking fillers available.
Another great place to shop for handmade jewellery is Amante Boutique. There are loads of unique pieces in this shop, including wooden earrings and statement brooches. How cute are these festive gingerbread earrings!?
This is my own little business, which I started back in March. Here you can find a range of handmade candles and wax melts, including everyday scents, a Disney/fairy-tale collection and a Christmas collection. The Christmas collection even has a wax melt advent calendar! The fairy-tale collection has candles and melts inspired by some of my favourite stories, including Beauty and the Beast, Moana and Snow White!
If you have a friend or family member who loves anything ocean related, they’ll love these beautiful handmade soaps, which are all inspired by the sea. There are some gorgeous soaps available, including shells, dolphins and mermaids. These soaps are vegan and cruelty free. You can also find lots of ocean inspired accessories including hanging felt beach hut decorations and even bracelets.
Until Next Time

Hello everyone! Christmas is fast approaching, and I’m sure by now you will have already thought about gifts for everyone in your life. But what about your little rodent friends? I always see so many gift guides for dogs and cats, but small animals often don’t get much of a mention. So I thought I… Continue Reading →
