Independent Makers: A Christmas Gift Guide 2018

Independent Makers: A Christmas Gift Guide 2018

I’m a bit late in my independent makers gift guide this year, but I thought I’d do it anyway for those last minute gifts and any birthdays coming up in the near future (*cough* mine). Also check out last year’s post for some more inspiration! I’m also gutted that I can’t make it down to Renegade Craft fair this year. So if you’re in London this weekend definitely pop down there to bag some beautiful handmade goods. It’s my favourite craft fair ever, full of the coolest wares – not a crocheted tea cosy in sight!

Keep reading to see my favourite picks from makers I’ve been loving this year.

HOMEWARE

Cold Picnic

Cold picnic make the most beautiful home textiles. Seriously swoooooning over those rugs.

STATIONARY & GIFTS

The Completist

The Completist's patterns and colours are right up my street. Hoping to get one of their daily planners which look like the perfect way to stay organised in 2019.

JEWELLERY

PRINTS AND HOMEWARE

Helo Birdie

Helo Birdie creates the most beautiful artwork, the colours are perfect and I love prints that remind me of summer. You can also get the designs on phone cases, cushions and even a bath mat!

PET ACCESSORIES

Four Legs Four Walls

Know a design conscious dog lover? Four Legs Four Walls have you sorted with their beautiful pet accessories! Bonus points that their leads and collars are made from cork so they're totally vegan. I think the bowls are almost too pretty to give to the dog!

SOCKS

Lookmate London

For the person who likes to get a bit unusual with their accessories these socks are perfect! I especially love the Mary Lou Faure pair!

BAGS

Wyatt and Jack

Possibly the coolest recycling idea ever, Wyatt and Jack turn inflatables into bags. Who wouldn’t want to own a bag that was a bouncy castle in its previous life?!
