If you're in need of a birthday gift or just want to send someone a little treat in the post (OR you importantly need a little treat for yourself...!) then here are a few ideas!
I have pulled together some of my favourite small businesses to give you some inspiration - so you can send something lovely and also support small.
Personalised star sign notebooks from me
(Obviously I had to include myself..) The star sign notebooks are a great way of sending something personal! Select your star sign, artwork cover and add some text at the bottom too.
Each star sign features an illustration of its constellation, this is Taurus perfect for any birthdays between 20th April - 20th May.
Candles & home and pillow mists from Apothecary Essence
These candles and room scents make lovely gifts, and include essential oils which have loads of different benefits. In particular the Composer features lemongrass and ginger which are great to help ease anxiety and stress.
These can also be sent wrapped in tissue and you can also add a gift note.
Natural skincare from Mallow and White
All of Jo's gorgeous (and award winning) skin care products are made with 6 ingredients or less. Natural, and made for sensitive skin types the range includes facial oils, hand creams and clay masks. And a soon to be launched hand sanitiser spray made with tea tree oil and mint.
All packaged beautifully with shredded tissue and rose petals.
Biscuits in the post! from Honeywell Bakes
I cannot tell you how much I LOVE these biccies from Honeywell Bakes - their bakers make them look incredible and taste lovely too. Loads of options to choose from including this 'breakfast in bed' selection in the picture below. And let's all just appreciate what a work of art their 'Freakshakes' are...
Lots of their bakes are also made to fit through the letterbox too.
Bright and beautiful gifts from Postcards Home
Colour lovers head here! Postcards Home is an online boutique selling a lovely selection of homewares and gifts inspired by travel. They work with other independent designers to bring a completely unique selection. I particularly love this peace pouch!
Statement jewellery from LB Beads
Handcrafted and made from recycled and fair-trade beads, no one will have jewellery quite like this! Maker Lolonyo creates these beautiful pieces from home in London and each one is totally unique and super colourful - perfect for when we are allowed back out the house again!
I particularly love these cluster earrings!
