Christmas is well and truly on the way, and with the icy arctic blasts showing no signs of abating, the best way to do your christmas shopping this year is with your feet up, by a roaring fire, complete with a glass of mulled wine.
With our economy in what seems to be a permanent crisis, its even more important than ever to support small businesses close to home. Shop Handmade UK features hundreds of british designers in its directory and there are so many choices online when it comes to handmade present options. So I have picked out some of my favourites from the directory (and from a few other places too) to help ease the burden of deciding what to buy your sister / father / friend / postman / neighbour's dog etc this year.
I'm looking at homewares and accessories and a smidgen of fashion, some of my very favourite things.
