Small business owners are passionate about the joy their products bring and what better way to celebrate the season than to give gifts from independent brands that are thoughtful, ethical and sustainable.
We’ve put together a Christmas Gift List to inspire you and share the love this season.
Earth-friendly and functional goods sourced directly from independent artisans & makers
Jungle Culture is committed to helping you go plastic-free, easily! Taking the stress and worry out of everyday life, by providing you with beautiful, plastic-free, and handmade products that you can trust. From safety razors in rainbow colours and beautiful coconut shell bowls to everything else in between, it's never been easier to eliminate plastic from your everyday routine. Plus, every purchase not only plants a tree, but helps continue to support and empower developing communities in Vietnam where the majority of products are made and sourced.
Ohelo is a family run, award winning independent brand, ethically making all their products from safer materials – the UK’s only lead free insulated bottle brand (isn’t it bonkers that there is still lead in almost all flasks out there?). All Ohelo bottles and travel cups are 100% leak proof and dishwasher safe. They are lead free as well as BPA, BPS0 and BPF-free. Endlessly recyclable and packaging is recycled and recyclable too. 5% profits go to charity.

Ditch the Waste, Embrace Memorable Experiences this Christmas!
Here's a thing each year, the UK spends £700 million on unwanted Christmas gifts. Consumers throw away approximately £42 million of unwanted presents each year (most end up in landfill). Of all purchases made in the UK for Christmas, only 1% will still be used six months after the big day! That's just a few reasons that Buy Women Built member Calypso Rose set up experience gift company The Indytute. Handpicked experiences that are "lovefilled not landfilled" run by people that love what they do. From full moon paddle boarding to pottery to foraging. Unusual and unique experiences that you won't find with all the big experience gift companies.
To help you shop with small businesses and give good times, The Indytute has given us a 10% discount with the code: KIND2CHRISTMAS (valid until Dec 7th) https://www.indytute.com/discount/KIND2CHRISTMAS
