With Christmas around the corner I’m taking on a local challenge and would love to see others join me.
It occurred to me whilst out shopping this week how sad it was that every other shop in the high street seemed to be closed so with that in mind I’m committing to buying local for this Christmas.
I’ve done a bit of research already and found that very often you can get price matched on popular toys and gifts in independent local stores. So no amazon gift buying for me, I have to break it to hubby, as that’s the limit to his gift buying – if amazon don’t sell it, we don’t get it!
We have some amazing local crafters, gift makers and food producers so why not build a hamper of local goodies, (I’ll be doing exactly this on a later post) to get the ball rolling here are some fab suggestions – locally produced jams & chutneys by From Dorset With Love delicious chocolates Chococo Chocolates tea to include in hampers from Dorset Tea, stunning Swarovski Xmas decorations from Tiaras By Becky.
