The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide; Small Business Edition

We all go through those times at Christmas when we have no idea what to get someone. We end up spending hours trying to rack out brains for something to get and don't get anywhere. Well I have put together a few ideas to hopefully help, however all of the below ideas are from small businesses in the UK.


Candles you can't go wrong with a candle. You could always change it up and give incense or max melts instead or aswell. At the moment I am obsessing over @PartyliteCandles which would be perfect as a gift. They have so many different product options. I have done a review before for their Mango 3 wick candle, link above, so you can read what I thought before you purchase. Definitely worth the look and the support small business owners.

Bath Goodies; You could treat someone to a novelty bath bomb from @BubbleTroubleUK a small bath bomb company I recently review also. Their new range of bath salts, accessories. If you have a friend or family member who loves to get their hands a little messy you could give them a make your own bath bomb such as the one I recently mad from @TheSoapLoafCompany - which I also reviewed.

You can get a mix n match gift box from @G&SSoaps filled with fragranced soaps, lip balms and reindeer flannels. Perfect for a Christmas self care pamper session.

Everyone knows @TheBodyShop but they also so multi level marketing so instead of buying from the shop why not go through an MLM rep and help them to make some money. I have used Leah's Body Shop At Home @BeautyPower before and would 100% recommend.


Do you love to treat your fur baby? If this sounds like you then @DogCatz has everything covered from luxury made pet beds to Christmas costumes. Definitely worth the look for your super cute fluffball at home.

Calling all fudge lovers, I have had fudge from @Foreverfudge before and every single flavour was sooo good. I have tried jaffa cake, chocolate & orange, marzipan and coconut ice. Their fudge is incredible, highly recommend.

@Beth'sBakes in Newport do the most delicious brownie boxes. You need to try!

Did Somebody Say Doughnuts?; @Who cult doughnuts are based in Bridgend and they do some awesome looking doughs. I have been there and pre reviewed it for you so no worry about wondering what the prices are and whether it's worth it, I got that covered. They are now doing deliveries so you can easily get your hands on them for a doughnut lover.


Tours & Tastings; A local brewery do tours of their distillery and tasting of their Welsh Brewed Whiskeys, Gins, Cream Liquors and more and after attending myself and absolutely loving the experience I feel something like this would be perfect as a doing gift for someone. If you want to here more about my experience at @PenderynDistillery you can check it out there. There are so many distilleries over the UK that do have this experience so even if you don't live close to Wales there is still the option of attending one nearer you.

Another great gift may be a hamper box filled with alcohol and nibbles from @Thewelshhampercompany


Subscription boxes; you can go many different boxes now from pyjamas, cakes, golf to marvel themed ones. A lot of companies allow you to buy just one box or you can extend it for a few months and give them a treat for the next couple of months. One for example would be @Treatboxuk who do monthly subscription boxes. they even do a build your own which I think is a fab idea to personalise it.

Online Experiences; For my boyfriend's birthday I recently bought an online murder mystery experience and it was so much fun. I bought this from Groupon from a small UK Company. There are so many online experiences whether it's a cocktail making class, sushi making kits or even online courses.

Another lovely gift for decoration is hand painted bottles by @Sally'sbottlesnbobs where you can choose your own light colours and message on the glass bottle.

@Jasmineshomewares do lovely Christmas and home decor. My favourite are the willow reindeers which are currently sold out, think we can see why as they are adorable.

Do you know someone who loves to decorate with cool and quirky prints around their house, if so @Bellaandwolf have got some awesome prints available. You can even customise your own quotes. How cool is that?


I really hope this had helped or even just given some inspiration if you were struggling. Also can i just add on how the heck is it the middle of November already? Sorry, but where has this time gone?!


Until Next Time! X
