My 5 Favourite Small Businesses for Christmas 2018

This year I have decided to buy the majority of my friends and families Christmas gifts from small shops and sellers, which I have mostly discovered this last year through Instagram and Etsy.

Twinkle Sprinkles

I first discovered this incredible shop in March this year and I now own roughly 8 or 9 of her incredible designs. Each piece is handcrafted using resin and then touched with magic to give each piece a unique finish.   You can expect noting but absolute perfection from every single order and often a cheeky extra within your package.
Everything within this small shop is meticulously thought out with such exciting attention to detail…from the stunning visual delight of the website to the pink package delivered to your door filled with glitter, sprinkles and your necklace or broach delicately wrapped in tissue paper
“What better way to advertise your Instagram account than a personalised sparkly Minnie brooch to grab peoples attention? This super sparkly design can be made in any colour combination and measures approximately 50 x 60mmPerfect for Disney bounding, blogging events and adding a touch of magic to your outfit. Adorned with delicate flowers this design is perfect for any princess”

Rock Paper Sisters

Established in 2013 by two sisters looking to combine pop culture with affordable fashion, Rock Paper Sisters quickly gathered a cult following thanks to their quirky slogans and designs you can’t find on the high street.
From Disney to Game of Thrones to customized wedding tees this is the store for you. On my recent trip to Disneyland Paris, I had a different tee from this amazing shop for each day I love them that much.
Alongside the amazing tees Rock Paper Sisters also do Jumpers, Makeup bags, tote bags, and children’s tees to name a few.
What I love most about this brand is how each item is fun, completely customizable and all items are made from the highest quality with the perfect range of sizes to suit everyone. When you order from this brand expect incredible customer service and nothing really is to much trouble.

My personal favourites are my 3 tees featuring the slogans ‘Self Confessed Disnerd’, ‘Meet me at the castle’ and ‘Really want a castle’.  I am a size 14/16 and wear a size Large.

Bishop Please!

Run by a husband and wife Duo Bishop please! offer Pop culture and fun graphic designed Cards, pins, badges and much more. This fun and an adventurous couple are also definitely worth following on Instagram for their hilarious daily stories.
I found this company due to their incredible ‘mental health trooper’ badge which I bought to wear when I am out and about. I know this badge means so much to myself and other people who are coping with mental health issues.
So if you are looking for an individual item for a family member this Christmas you are 100% guaranteed to find something within this website.

My personal Favourite item is the blank greetings card featuring the incredible Pixar short Lava which I just love and this card is in a frame on my Disney wall.

Within this Etsy store, you will find hair bows each individually themed to their chosen Disney or film character. Each bow is available in different sizes to suit all ages and I cannot express how much attention to detail each bow has.
Alongside the hair bows there are also bows which are made specifically to be worn on your shoes which add a touch of Disney to all your outfits whether it be in the parks, Bounding as your favourite character or if your like me and just want to take something, Disney, everywhere you go.

I was lucky enough to be able to order 2 bows themed on Moana and Alice and wonderland which were for my daughters birthday and the personal service I received was just beautiful…individually wrapped with a personal letter just makes receiving your order that bit more special.

This incredible enamel pin and jewellery brand will blow your mind with their unique and fun products.  Probably one of the companies most recognisable products is the Instagram camera which is available in a number of colours and designs.
Alongside the pins there is a collection of necklaces again in the fun and original signature style of this brand with classic pastel colours and unique Disney designs.
Still some black Friday deals live online too…I am not going to lie I went a little crazy and ordered 5 new pins for my collection which I received today and they are INSANE….
