Shop small gift guide including all the businesses that need our support, especially at this difficult time
As you probably know by now I love shopping small. My Instagram is a catalogue of our favourite brands and independent shops which I love. I enjoy styling the bits I buy to show you them in our home and being used and loved by my little ones.
My followers often ask me what I love to buy as gifts so here is my round up! Supporting small means a lot to me, I know we all have things to buy and bills to pay but if I can try and be mindful of my spending so I can maybe spend a little more from a small business I will. In turn, these items last so much longer than mass produced products!! Please do sign up to newsletters too as you’ll often get a little reward off at checkout.
I’ve broken down in categories and also added various items for every budget. If you have any questions just fire away!

I’ve carefully picked items for the age One upwards range that last. Toys that Bodie has and will continue to play with for good few years. I firmly believe Open ended toys that have no age limit should be in everyones toy boxes. They spark imagination, motor skills and no end of fun!
