Christmas is fast approaching and now more than ever it is so important to help small businesses. I’m so excited for Christmas this year and, I’ve tried to spend more time researching the perfect presents for everyone in my life and I’ve tried to shop small. This has become a rather large gift guide and, there are some absolutely amazing small businesses in here so you’re sure to find something that suits everyone. I hope you find something that you like for the festive season and remember to shop small!

For the Candle Lover:
Inside the Frangrance is run by the lovely Alisha who has some absolutely amazing scents to choose from. I have bought some of her wax melts for some people for Christmas and they look incredible – I love the design of the wax melts and they smell amazing. I’m a huge fan of all her Christmas scents and I love anything cinnamon related so some of her Christmas wax melts are a big win for me!
Grace Etc sells vegan-friendly and cruelty-free candles in some amazing scents! She sells Movie Night scented candles which sound incredible and perfect for someone who’s a film fan too! If you’re reminiscing about holiday season then there’s also a Lime in the Coconut candle which sounds like the perfect scent if you know someone who wishes they were abroad!
For the Foodie:
Vinny’s vegan snack boxes sound incredible! You can purchase a single box or gift a subscription to someone if you want to make Christmas happen for every month of the year. They allow you to pick your own snacks for the box or you can leave it as a surprise. I think this is such a cool idea and I love that they support independent vegan food brands too. I’m such a big snacker myself and I always find myself wandering the food aisles for something new to try so Vinny gives you the chance to find a new favourite snack every single month!
If you like chocolate then this is the Christmas gift for you! Slap & Tipple handmake all of their chocolates and they really do have a flavour for everyone! Some of my favourites are white chocolate with honeycomb, milk chocolate with salt (I’m a big fan of salted chocolate!) and dark chocolate with raspberry! They even have a vegan range and sell handmade fudge so if you know someone with a sweet tooth then check out Slab & Tipple!
If you know someone who is looking to try some healthier snacks or is too busy to create their own snacks then Treat Trunk have you covered. You can gift a one-off box or buy a subscription which means a whole bunch of healthy snacks will be delivered to your loved one’s door. I love how they focus on picking healthier alternatives to what you might regularly snack on so it’s a great Christmas gift that also allows you to discover some healthy and delicious brands!
For the Home Lover:
Benji’s shop have some absolutely gorgeous bits and bobs that are perfect for Christmas! I have found myself scouring their website in the past few months looking as there are so many items that I love (*hint to any of my family reading this*)! They sell so many lovely pieces for around the home and their Christmas decorations are so cute too! Some particular favourites of mine are the Woodland Planter, Silver Moonshine Earrings and any of their mugs or bowls. I genuinely love the entire website so much so that I could buy everything on their website if I’m not careful!
For the Drink Lover:
If you fancy going one better than just a bottle of bubbly for Christmas then look no further than Say it with Champers. They let you the personalise the label of your bottle to tailor it to whoever you wish to gift it to which is such a cool concept! Personalised gifts are some of my favourites to receive and if you know someone who is a fan of champagne then this is perfect to make their gift extra special!
Friary Drinks have some absolutely amazing sounding drinks flavours that I have already purchased a few for my family for Christmas which I am sure they will love on Christmas day! Their Christmas range have so many incredible sounding flavours in their whiskey and gin liqueurs that are perfect for your festive tipple – ginger, apple, cinnamon, cloves, orange and nutmeg! If you want to buy an alcoholic beverage that screams Christmas then Friary Drinks have got you covered!
For the Fashion Lover:
I absolutely love a good tote bag and use them all the time when I’m at uni as they’re so handy for so many things. Sew Totes have the most adorable designs, I am a particular fan of the star sign totes as I’m a sucker for anything with Libra on it! Bry even makes personalised designs so you can create the perfect tote bag for someone in your life! They make such a fab gift and are perfect for Christmas!
So that’s it for this mammoth small business gift guide! Like I said earlier there are some absolutely incredible businesses out there with some amazing and unique gifts that really will suit everyone. I hope you’ve found some Christmas present inspiration and found something that you love. I’ve personally loved shopping smaller this Christmas and found it so rewarding buying things I know someone will love but also supporting small businesses too!
