Shop Small This Christmas

Shop Small This Christmas

It’s that time of the year again! The time to indulge in plenty of hot chocolate, biscuits and mince pies. All whilst snuggled up watching classic Christmas films. The reality though is that, we usually run round frantically looking for those last Christmas presents, rather than actually enjoying all the wonders of Christmas.

Although this year has been, well…many things. I am still super excited for Christmas. And, what’s more exciting I can enjoy all the Christmas shopping with my hot chocolate and Christmas film at the same time. I must say, all the deliveries, have me skipping to the door (a bit like Christmas Day, when you’re running downstairs in excitement).

I’ve also enjoyed looking further than just the stores I’d usually shop from. There are so many wonderful small businesses out there who create beautiful things with so much love.

Here’s a small list of little businesses that I have enjoyed following and ordering from. Ranging from delicious treats, gorgeous jewellery, amazing portraits and more, there’s definitely something for everyone.


What can I say about Honeywell Biscuit Co. Not only are their biscuits gorgeous to look at but they are incredibly delicious. All put together with love and care by a super talented team.

Using only the best and where possible local ingredients, you are in for a real treat.  

With so many stunning designs, baking kits for adults and children there is plenty for you to choose from as a perfect Christmas gift.

I came across Rosie Bow Jewellery whilst swiping through insta stories. Straight away I had to check out Kate’s account.

I just adore the dainty, simple style of everything Kate makes. 

If you’re looking for a special gift for your friend or loved one, be sure to check out Kate’s account. 


A personalised portrait is always an amazing gift, that keeps on giving.

And Kamala’s bespoke portraits are simply breathtaking. The detail in her drawings are out of this world. 

A perfect gift for that special someone.

Charlotte creates the most gorgeous, freehand embroidered house accessories, cards and prints.

I have a few little Christmas decorations waiting in the basket too. Which reminds me, I must get them ordered in time for Christmas. 




Organic and gentle skin care for little ones and grown ups too.

I was super excited to find Rue & Cole little business, as I am always on the look out for good skin care, especially for my little ones. And even more excited to know that it’s a Yorkshire based business too.

Using only natural ingredients and products that are kind to the planet too, you or your loved one are in for a real pampering treat. 



Jessica Steele Jewellery is another Yorkshire based business. Making the most gorgeous jewellery. From wedding rings to necklaces, bracelets and more, there’s plenty to choose from.

Oh and not to mention her bespoke service too. If you would like to make something new from something old. Maybe something passed down. You can work closely with Jessica Steele Jewellery to create the perfect gift, whether it’s for you or a loved one. 



Murphy and Me is one of my favourite little businesses out there. Frances creates such adorable portraits and personalised illustrations.

From personalsied pet portraits (we have one proudly displayed at home of our beloeved lab), to baby and family illustrations.

There’s plenty to choose from.
