The Big Indie Christmas Gift Guide 2018

With the year flashing by so quickly, I’m definitely lagging behind on the Christmas shopping. Amazingly, even with a new born last year I seemed to be more on top of my gift buying than I am now, ( I did most of it online during the night feeds!).

Having tackled a large, busy shopping centre only today, I get why people choose to shop online. Before you go filling your cart on Amazon though, why not spend some time looking at all the things indie sellers have to offer? If you’re finding yourself stretched for time, below I’m sharing a snippet of some of my favourite items (including a few from my own Etsy store). I’ve also pulled together a Pinterest board of over 50 gift ideas for your nearest and dearest featuring these gifts and more.

Trim Those Trees

We won’t be having a full sized tree this year (it’s not going to end well with a very inquisitive one year old in the house), so I’ll be making the most of our small tree with lots of lovely unique decorations. These are some of the decorations I’ve been eyeing up, and are definitely different to what you’ll find in your local garden centre.
