Shophandmadeuk Christmas Gift Guide 2019
Let's all aim to try and shop small this Christmas. Whether you purchase one gift from a small handmade business or all of your gifts this Christmas.
Shopping from small handmade businesses this Christmas ensures more than just the gift recipient will have a smile on their face. It also means the recipient will receive something hand made with love, time and passion and that the item will be a one off piece, as nothing handmade can be made identical to another like a mass production factory would.
Buy one of one, not one of a million!
Some people may think that handmade items are more expensive than those sold in large high street shops, but that is not always the case, and handmade items will always be made to a higher quality and standard due to the time, love and care put into them.
Here are a few businesses we think sell lovely handmade items perfect for gift-giving this festive season!
First up we have: The Wire Nest
Hi I'm Tally and I run The Wire Nest. I started this business to allow me to stay at home with my children and to enjoy my favourite hobby, art. I create a range of wire art, from quotes, bedroom door signs and more. These are the perfect gift for any interior lover and they add the perfect finishing touch to a room. Have a look at my popular items or contact me for something bespoke.
Next up we have: Fair Bloom Jewellery
My name is Marianne and I am the founder of Fair Bloom. I design and create delicate Japanese glass seed bead jewellery to celebrate women. Fair Bloom is all about appreciating and affirming the women in our lives - for who they are and the many roles they play in so many people's lives. All of my jewellery is inspired either by women in my own life or a personal memory. I hope you enjoy reading the inspiration behind each piece of jewellery, and perhaps find yourself within it too. p.s. All UK orders are entitled to free shipping - perfect for Christmas shopping!
Next up we have: The Little White Moon
Hi, I'm Lindsay, creator of 'The Little White Moon'. A mum of to two little boys and a military wife to boot; it's safe to say that life is incredibly busy! 'The Little White Moon' was therefore started with the passion to start my own small business from home, which allows me to unleash my love for all things handmade, whilst giving me time to enjoy my young family.
The Little White Moon is the place to find beautiful handmade macramé creations made in the heart of Devon. I also create bespoke pieces, so please do not hesitate to drop me a message and I’ll be more than happy to make something original for you.
