Buying ethically made and sustainable gifts is the best way to support your small, local businesses and share unique gifts with your loved ones. It's so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind that is Christmas and end up not knowing what to get anyone so below I've got a huge gift guide for you all to hopefully help!

For the Jewellery Lover

I know jewellery is such an obvious one for a present, but I still 100% think it's a good idea. Especially if it is personalised or unique. So instead of heading to Pandora or the likes head to independent stores online or boutiques that sell more unique pieces. I think it means so much more and is extra special when that person knows you've really hunted down this one of kind piece just for them.

As I mentioned in last weeks post, a close friend of my has her own jewellery line called Pina Jewels, of course I am going to give her a special shout out because every single piece she hand makes is beautiful and at a really great price with pieces your loved one can wear every day. This is the link to her Easy store here. Etsy in general is a really great place to hunt down unique jewellery from independent stores!

The Hostess with the Mostess

If you know anyone like me who is obsessed with homeware than this little section is for them! Since redecorating my room I have been on the hunt for really cool, unique pieces for my room. Again with the jewellery having that special piece in there home will not only look great but have a great story behind it too. Below I have linked some pieces that I think are great to buy anyone how has just moved or is a homeware obsessive like me from blankets to candles, those finishing pieces always make the difference.

Homemade Hampers

This is one of my favourite things ever. Creating your own hamper for a someone special with all their favourite things or little things to make their days better is just the best idea. For instance, if you know someone who gets stressed easily and doesn't take that all important time to relax and have some real me time ( I mean we all should do this more anyway) then why not create a pamper hamper which has their favourite candle, something cosy like socks or a hot water bottle, a good book they want, and maybe some premium chocolate to munch on so that they can use all these things to create their own little me time and it will be just that extra special because you put it all together for them! It could be anything from food to musical to mini homeware pieces!

For those hard to buy Guys (this also be a great gift for girls too)

I always struggle when buying for my boyfriend, brother and dad. Instead of buying physical things that they will either not like, get bored of or end up throwing away, buy a gift to do an experience of some kind. It could be something they've always wanted to do or somewhere they've always wanted to go. There's an idea for every kind of budget and I've listed some of my favourites below!
