AD- this gift guide features gifted products.
It’s that time of year again! It’s time for the 2021 Thrifty Londoner festive gift guide. Each year, I aim to feature independent businesses, London based makers and creators, and more! Hopefully this guide will give you some alternative gift ideas, and point you in the direction of some affordable gifts from small businesses. It’s more important than ever to support small business owners- even if we buy one or two gifts this year from an independent company, we are supporting someone’s dream!
Arran Sense of Scotland
The Citrus Woods Candle Gift Set is fantastic way to set the festive mood this Christmas. The Arran Sense of Scotland candles are luxury candles available in a range of scents. The uplifting scents include Amberwood, Cedarwood & Citrus, Grapefruit and Fig.
Located in Arran, this small business’ goal is to help the world connect with nature, with all products made in the heart of Scotland.
SEAMS are a leading hand care brand. Founded by Karen J Gerrard, the brand was born when, fed up of her hands getting sore, pinpricked, and dry when working in the fashion industry, Karen decided to create a hand cream that didn’t transfer grease onto fabrics.
SEAMS is now the number 1 hand care used on set at ITV and Netflix. It’s now used by people far and wide as a hand care treat during the winter months.
The Cranes Cider Gift Set includes three refreshingly natural fruit ciders (Blueberries & Apples, Cranberries & Limes and Raspberries & Pomegranates), along with a branded pint glass.
Cranes ciders are crafted using only the most natural ingredients resulting in them containing 30% fewer calories and over 40% less sugar compared to brand leaders.
Cranes also have the Cider Club App where customers receive points which can then be used to purchase products online or plant trees. Cranes have also made all of their employees carbon negative by planting trees across the world. All of Cranes products are crafted in Cambridgeshire by co-founders and twin brothers Ben & Dan, using the finest and most natural ingredients.
