Updated: Dec 28, 2022

The best part being part of a small business community is making everyone part of your creative journey. Nothing feels better than being mentioned by industry's top Gift Guides. We are super proud that our designs impressed these fabulous industry leaders and they felt inspired to add on their curated Gift Guides'. Thank you...

These thoughtful indie gifts are perfect to delight any age group. You have something for everyone in the family and friends even the teachers, 'secret Santa', office colleagues etc.

Both the fabulous curators have spent days to select gifts from all ages and budgets.


Word of mouth and recommendations have never been more important for us smalls. If you love the independent brands that are in the guide, please share far and wide!

Is it a bit early to be Christmas shopping?

Not when shopping small, absolutely not... Many of these businesses are 1 human outfits! Also, Royal Mail are holding a lot of strikes between now and Christmas. Please do shop as early as you can.

Word of mouth and recommendations have never been more important for us smalls. If you love the independent brands that are in the guide, please share far and wide!

It's a people-powered Gift Guide, made up entirely of amazing, small

and independent brands. This is the third consecutive year of the Small, Indie & Mighty Gift Guide.

What's new? This year's guide is even BIGGER and this year there is a Stocking Filler & Secret Santa gifts category and this entire section features beautiful gifts under £10. I was so impressed with the beautiful things in this new category as the rising cost of living means we are all feeling the pinch and small businesses are defo not exempt from this.

''Christmas is just around the corner and you still don’t have any ideas for what you should buy for your loved ones? Well look no further as we have composed the ultimate gift guide for not only your eco-conscious relatives, but for anyone!

The brands & products featured are all specifically sustainable, as at Teapro we promote living a greener life, especially around Christmas time when the levels of waste are at an all time high.''

4. Small Business Christmas Gift Guide


DECEMBER 12, 2022

This Small Business Christmas Gift Guide will not only give you some serious present inspo, but also help to support your local businesses. We're encouraging you to shop small this Christmas and help to support the businesses that need it most... our local shops.

This small business Christmas gift guide will hopefully show great results for local businesses and give you great gift ideas! Half of the UK’s small business owners have said they fear this will be their last Christmas trading. We, as customers, can change this and help to keep our local high streets thriving with independent shops. We have put together a local gift guide to encourage people to support local this Christmas and help to make a big impact for our small businesses. The gift guide below has present inspo for all members of the family and even for fussy friends. All the gifts linked are from our listings here at Local Life, which we think is pretty cool!
