Gift Guide 2020
Christmas might be a little different this year, but at the time of writing we are all keeping our fingers crossed for the chance to see our wider social network. We also know that millions of jobs and businesses are at risk due to the current restrictions, and so for that reason I have made the decision to focus upon small businesses for my gift guide this year.
Although this includes some businesses I am already an affiliate or Brand Ambassador for, I have also included some of my personal favourite small businesses and also reached out on social media in order to help promote small brands.
Personally, I am going to be using small businesses and the high street as far as possible for my Christmas shopping, and I really encourage you to do the same. With that in mind, here are my top picks from small businesses this Christmas.
I absolutely love this brand based in my hometown of Cleethorpes. If you are local to the area, you can find Minimo Jewellery stocked at House of Harriet, Seaview Street. Or you can check out the Etsy shop on the link above.
Here are my 3 favourite pieces from the shop:
I love this brand for all things retro and pop culture! They have a range of unique products to suit fans of Star Wars, Disney, Beetlejuice and Hello Kitty to name but a few. Here are my favourite picks from the shop, at prices to suit most people’s budgets when buying for friends. (I’m thinking £20 and under.)
Star Wars Coasters – £10 – Quirky coasters like this are one of my favourite cheap and fun ways to add a bit of character to a room!
BlowLTD are a unique hair & beauty at home service, where you can book a salon grade treatment in the comfort of your own home. They also offer an online shop, and currently you can get 20% off your first order with the code SHOP20.
Treat a friend or family member to a beauty treatment at home with a BlowLTD giftcard – you can choose your own amount and this way the recipient can pick and choose a treatment and date to suit them.
A beauty box would also make a great gift idea. I love this “Me Time” beauty box, worth over £70 which is just £24 after the discount code is applied.
You can pick up some very affordable treats from bath salts to mystery boxes, all with a zodiac theme. These would make great gifts for any zodiac lover!
Balmonds SkinCare is a UK based Skincare brand that uses 100% natural ingredients. They are particularly effective for those with skin conditions and sensitive skin, but are even suitable to use on babies. I first discovered the brand when treating my daughter’s eczema. It proved to be so effective that it has since become one of my go to brands.
This Travel set would make an ideal gift and currently you can save a massive £19 PLUS 20% with my exclusive discount code (see below).
This all natural starter set is another great gift idea with a current saving of £15.00 PLUS 20% (see below).
As a brand ambassador for Balmonds, you can get 20% off your entire order with the code SKINNY20 applied at the checkout.
Money Mum is a fellow UK Money Blogger and she has a range of educational printables over on her Etsy shop. What’s more she is offering a 15% discount code for my readers. Apply code MSS15 at the checkout until Jan 31st.
Grace Etc make hand poured soy candles in a range of exotic scents on Etsy. At just £10 an item, they would make ideal Christmas gifts. I really like the sound of this Rooftop Bar fragrance.
