Hey everyone, here are the latest instalments in my ethical gift guide! I have chosen 10 gifts from independent or small businesses to feature. I always try to buy handmade/homemade bits and bobs when shopping for my Christmas presents. By buying from small businesses and participating in small business Saturday, you can support local crafters and makers and keep smaller shops going too. Etsy, Folksy, Yummly, Ebay and Facebook are my go to sites when looking for things. Facebook pages where crafters sell their work are increasingly popular but always be cautious when paying for products and remember your buyers’ rights. Its always important to keep track of what bank details you give away or stick to paypal, keep track of payments and deliveries also- to make sure you receive all purchases. Facebook page; ‘Santa’s Little Hikers‘ is one of my favorite for finding unusual gifts to purchase, so do check it out, as many people are still taking orders.
