Hi guys, Andreia here! I am here to help you guys find the perfect gift for yours friends and family. This years gift guide is all about small businesses because we wanted this season to be about giving back.
Did you know that small businesses employ over 24.3 million people in the UK ?
By supporting a small business not only are you supporting a dream your are also supporting the countries economy and providing more people in the UK with jobs.
1- Cushions and Notebooks by MrsBDesignsLTD
Mrs B (Aka Karen) runs MrsBDesignsLtd from her garden studio. Everything in her Etsy shop is handmade and printed by her in her Oxfordshire home. She offers free domestic shipping on all her items and can make custom orders. Upon picking up her cushions you can really feel the quality of the product but you can also feel and see all the time, effort, dedication and live that went into designing and creating it. Her little notebooks are perfect little stocking fillers for your blogger friends or anyone that enjoys writing or drawing and her cushions make the perfect little home accessory. Being a single mum I instantly fell in love with the “ We are all wonder women” cushion and proudly displayed it on my sofa. It’s the perfect reminder that I am doing a pretty amazing job at raising my little lady but also shows her that no matter what she too is Wonder Woman. Mrs B also sells soy wax candles, personalised shopper bags and pencils.

I am a user of these earphones personally and absolutely love them. The are super comfortable, have awesome sound quality and charge relatively quickly. This product is ideal for those who are looking for a lower priced alternative to Apple wireless earphones, retaling at just £47

What I particularly love about this product is that you can clearly see the product designer thought about all the small details which I really appreciate.
The product was truly built with customer convenience at its heart.
I know, totally cool right?
I could harp on about how much I love the product or you could simply try it for yourself.

This is service we included simply because of how quirky and innovative, yet thoughtful it was.
To all of you book lovers out there, this one is for you!

I know what you’re thinking, I can barely contain my excitement either!
