A more meaningful Christmas shopping experience

Consider this your guide to a more meaningful gifting experience this Christmas. It’s that time of year again, when we are rushing round ticking off those gifting lists for loved ones. And, this year in particular, has lead us to think differently, and a little harder about the gifts we are buying and where we are buying them from. Small businesses and business owners locally are feeling the impact more than ever, but how can we support them? Here, we’ve pulled in super meaningful ideas, which should inspire you to spend your money with those who’ll appreciate it most.

Top tips for meaningful gift buying:
- Ask friends for recommendations - when you're struggling with ideas, asking friends for gifting advice makes you think of things you would have never thought of.
- Treat friends to dinner - although you might not be able to do it now, many bars and restaurants are offering gift cards as a treat when they are allowed to open!
- visit a virtual Christmas market - support your small or local business with virtual Christmas markets! There are Facebook groups/communities that are here to offer stallholders or little shops the chance spend.
- Shop at your local farmers shop or deli - don't forget about your local farmers and deli shops, especially during this time (and sometimes you might find yourself a bargin).
- Try handmade gifts - whether you're looking at cards, posters, jewellery or more, there are so many handmade businesses out there just waiting to be discovered.
- Tell your friends / leave a review - Share your photos and thoughts on social media, leave a review, tell your friends about your new discovery! Small businesses have brought outstanding services!
- 12-month subscriptions - Why not source a course that suits your loved one, sign them up as a Christmas gift, and help support small businesses? This gives your loved one a great opportunity to focus on your thoughtful gift!
