Christmas is Coming (Gift Edition)

Christmas is Coming…

“…and the goose is getting fat, please put a penny in the old man’s hat”! But that’s not what I want to talk to you about today, well not fat geese and old men’s hats anyway.

Christmas is indeed coming, and if, like me, you’ve started to ponder what on earth you’re going to buy your friends and relations this year, I would like to suggest a few small Christian businesses who may sell just the thing you didn’t know you needed in your life!

I don’t know how familiar you are with Etsy, (it’s a website that allows small businesses to sell their wares), well, there is a Christian version called Cheerfully Given (! I discovered it recently and it’s brilliant. Most of the list below can be found on that website. I know it’s only October, but as a lot of the businesses below sell handmade items, ordering earlier may help ensure your gifts reach you by Christmas.

So, if you need some inspiration, here goes:

This is just a snippet of some of the wonderful, small, Christian businesses that are out there. Obviously, shopping local is always going to be more beneficial for the environment, but we are getting a bit limited here on the Island. So, if you can, why not help out a smaller business this year. I can guarantee you (as a small business owner myself) they will be so much more grateful for your purchases than any of the bigger stores around. They will probably do a little dance when they receive your order!

I hope you find something you want/need/love/simply can’t live without!

Happy Shopping!
