Are you still looking for the perfect present with the Holidays fast approaching? The Hullfire has got some great suggestions for you!
Now more than ever, buying locally and supporting small businesses is incredibly important. That’s why this little guide of where to shop focuses away from the high street with a variety of ethical and hand-crafted gifts on offer.
- The Stone Seasons
This small business sells handmade jewellery, bookmarks and other small gifts! Check out their Etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/StoneSeasons
- Sweet Little Things
This new tearoom on Newland Avenue creates the most amazing platters full of cakes, sandwiches and other small snacks available for takeaway! You can order one for the Holidays and enjoy some nice finger food with your loved ones. Visit their Facebook page to have a look! https://www.facebook.com/sweetlittlethingstearoomhull/
- Soap from the Heart
This Hull-based business sells handmade soaps that are 100% cruelty-free. They are also currently selling Christmas-themed bath bombs! These indulgent bath products are a great gift for anyone, because let us be honest, who doesn’t love soap? They have a physical store as well as an online shop, that you can check out here: https://www.soapfromtheheart.co.uk
Coming in with another business located in our lovely Hull: 19Point4. This shop sells lovely fashion and home pieces from their physical store on Humber Street, but they have an online shop as well. How convenient! Here is the link to their website: https://19point4.com
This Etsy shop sells theme-based, handmade jewellery. The Christmas collection is obviously a great gift idea for this time of year, but I’m personally in love with the Tim Burton-inspired earrings. You can never go wrong with a little creepy. Visit her Etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/AngelsDelightsUK?ref=search_shop_redirect
- The Little Ray of Sunshine box
These well-being boxes are great for friends or family members who deserve to be spoiled this December. There are a few different boxes you can choose from on their website here: https://www.littlerayofsunshinebox.co.uk
- Poorboy Boutique
Ethical shopping means sustainable shopping. And what’s more sustainable than buying pre-owned? This amazing vintage shop in Hull will have something for everyone. Check out their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/PoorboyBoutique
That concludes The Hullfire’s ethical Gift Guide for December 2020. We know this year has been hard on all of us, so go out and treat yourself and the people you love. Wish you a very happy ending to this year!
