I am in for anything simple. Nothing too complicated and all that jazz. Handmade, artisan is up my street and supporting Fairtrade. If, I have such talent and time to make handmade presents for everyone, then I would. But, I am nowhere there so, I prefer to give out something simple-not so much going on, personalised, handmade and artisan products.
I am sure, I am not alone. If you know someone along this line, here’s a gift guide that will surely rock their boat. Fingers crossed that Santa will be reading this too, hey?
Jord Watch – Gorgeous wood watch and works like a treat. Perfection is the word. Jord sent me one to sport this Christmas and I am already over the moon.
Picks from my favourite shop for anything handmade, artisan and boho products- Ian Snow. This company is responsible for bringing in all this gorgeousness to us. What’s not to love about Fairtrade, hey? Every time, I get to visit their shop, I literally don’t want to leave. Everything is made by such great artistic skills all over the world.
