Did you see my post last Friday with the discount codes for Sweet-Bea - if not do take a look here.
But on my various shopping trips and online browsing I have come across a few other ideas that I think you might love.
We are very lucky to have a gorgeous pop-up shop in Marlow called Craft Coop and it is a showroom for lots of local craft businesses. I really enjoyed browsing in there this week and thought I'd share some of the products that caught my eye and would make really special gifts. I love to support small and local businesses if I can and most of these have etsy or facebook shops or a website.
First up, these unique fabric items caught my eye and yes I have ordered something! They are from Crafted by Gina on Etsy.
Then I spotted these gorgeous personalised signs and Christmas decorations, have a look at their facebook shop here - Dandylion Designs UK. Really good prices and made to order - and not just for Christmas.
Indigo and Rose have a website and I have in the past purchased their lavender hearts as small gifts and I quite fancy the lavender eye pillow for when I finally get into a routine of doing daily relaxation/meditation! I love their blankets.
And the last one from Craft Coop... the Cookham Candle Company, we all love to give and receive a candle and these ones are homemade, natural and free from toxins (which is much better for us).
Or how about choosing a pretty gift box and adding a scarf and bracelet. This gift box is from Indigo Artisans on Etsy and the scarf and bracelet are from Sweet-Bea (see my previous post (here) for a discount code valid until Friday 8th December).
I hope this gives you a few ideas that are more individual - and if you do live in or near Marlow then have you found Craft Coop in their new location yet? They are on Institute Road towards the library (and near Mooch - another great independent shop).
