I couldn’t do a 2020 Christmas gift guide without including one for small businesses. There a few small businesses that I have come across this year, and I want to share them with you. They haven’t all had an order from me yet but they caught my eye and are saved in my bookmarks, which eans they deserve a mention in my eyes.
Dorkfacecreates is the owned by Jemma. She has been running her business now for 6 years and her products are just so adorable. I have recently placed an order and cannot wait to receive them. She sells pins, notebooks, cards, bookmarks, washi tape and so much more. These are perfect little stocking stuffers. @dorkfacecreates is her Instagram
Next up we have Thriftbox UK. I found them while scrolling through the Instagram discovery page. It is owned by a “Yorkshire based cat lady” by the name of Lauren. Just a heads up, some of her products are not child friendly, however, there is something for everyone. From cups, to tree decorations, to cards. She has a shop full of treats just waiting for you! You can find her at @thriftboxuk on Instagram.
Fat Baby Soaps
Do you have someone in your life that loves a bit of a pamper session? Then head over to Fat Baby Soaps. I especially love the cute little bubble bars. You can’t go wrong with smellies at Christmas. I personally love getting soaps and bath bombs. To find out more about their new products head over to @fatbabysoaps on Instagram.
Oh Luna Creates
Pretty stationary is a weakness of mine and Oh Luna Creates has some great pieces. Lisa is the owner, and she runs Oh Luna Creates from sunny Manchester. They are another local business to me and it makes me proud to be a northerner. You can find them at @Ohlunacreates on Instagram.
The Wily Fox
The Wily Fox has a bunch of the cutest vintage items. Retro VHS lights , vintage disney cups and even a Burn Book from mean girls. Looking at these items takes me back to my childhood and I ain’t mad about it. I haven’t seen any other small business like it. Head over to @wilyfoxvintage for more information and products.
Q and Frey
Q and Frey is a new clothing business that launched this year. It is owned by the lovely Jessica (who is also an amazing Make-up artist). At the moment they have a range of socks, tie dye t-shirts and sweaters.
They have a new burnt line coming at the end of November, which I am really excited to see. You can also find @QandFrey on Instagram.
Now these small businesses are just a few that have caught my eye. I believe in supporting small businesses where I can, especially during these crazy pandemic ridden times. If you have any other business you want to recommend feel free to leave a comment with a link to their website. I want to buy from as many small business as I can, when I can.
