For those that are like me and always a bit last minute, or whether you’ve just a couple of presents to buy, why not support small where you can. There are so many fantastic small businesses out there, here are just a few all selling handmade items, unique and beautiful and still posting out for the next few days! Of course, the poor Postie’s are up against it, so always bear that in mind, but these indie businesses need our support as much as ever!

Grab a brew, maybe a mince pie and enjoy a little browse….

If you can’t buy from a small buisness this Christmas, a follow, a like or a comment, even a newsletter sign up can really make a big difference! However you choose to do it, supporting a small business is a great way to vote with your money and if they’re local to you, that’s even better!

Merry Christmas everyone!
