Hello, hello, hello! It’s time for my third and final gift guide of 2018. I know that this one has been a long time coming, but I wanted to make sure that I was 100% happy with it before posting, so if you’re reading this, that means that I am!! As ever, I’m happy to take any additional suggestions, just pop them in the comments! 

As a little disclaimer, a lot of these are small businesses that I have worked with over the last year or so. However, this particular post is not sponsored or endorsed in any way, it’s just that I really have fallen in love with these brands so wanted to share them!

Now, without furtherado, let’s get into the gift guide…

PNK Lettuce

Looking for personalised, unique hand-stamped jewellery? Look no further! These are handmade in England, affordable, great quality and completely inappropriate, what more could you want?! I actually worked with them a few months ago and I have a post about it if you fancy a nosey.

Bold Tuesday

I actually have one of their travel posters, and I absolutely LOVE it! In a simple black frame, these look so classy and are the perfect gift for any travel lovers in your life!!

Natural Essentoils

For all your cruelty free and vegan beauty needs! From pillow sprays, to brush cleaners, to lashes, Natural Essentoils are one of my favourite brands for all things beauty.


Still need to get your Christmas cards? Thortful have got you covered! They are always my first stop for cards, as they just do so many cute and funny ones. And, I’ve just had a little browse of their site, and their Christmas collections do not disappoint! They also do gifts such as personalised chocolates and notebooks!

Own A Moment

What could be a better gift than an actual moment of time? I can’t think of one! It’s the perfect gift for that person that has everything, and a truly unique and special one too!

Paperless Post

Got friends or family that live too far away to send a card to? Do not fear, paperless post has got you! Ranging from simple yet elegant designs, to extravagant ones, to personalised designs, and even humorous ones; they’ve got you covered for the season!

Friction Free Shaving

Will I ever stop raving about this brand? NOPE! I get a delivery from them every month and I absolutely adore them, and their Christmas gift box is as cute and useful as ever!

Secret Scent Box

The gift of a subscription is always the gift that keeps on giving, and this one is perfect for any perfume/after shave lover! Or, perhaps, maybe even someone that hasn’t found *that* perfect scent yet!

Sorry that this is rather short and sweet, but I only wanted to include the small business that I can personally recommend as being great! I did, however, ask on twitter for some suggestions, and here’s the small business that others are loving!!
