Christmas shopping

Okay so I was going to put ‘guide’ in the title but honestly I’m terrible at Christmas shopping so I’m just putting some feelers out there for who I’m probably going to buy from! And we’re also well in to December so half of you will probably have everything bought and wrapped already! I am not that organised.

There’s a big push this year to buy from local companies and family run businesses because let’s face it, they need that one little sale so much more than big companies do! It literally could keep them in business and if their product is good quality, why not pay that extra 50p and help someone out?!

So I’ve come across a little company who make such cute things that are right down my street! They’re also really affordable so win win!

They’re called Family Merch and much like many other retailers they’ve got a super cute Christmas Range but theirs is a little different from the rest!

The pricing is really good in my opinion too! I’d certainly be happy with what I get for the price, and i’m by no means rolling in it! Check out a couple of my favourite items!

Another place worth shopping this year if you’re local to me is Outdoor World! No, I don’t work there anymore and YES, it IS definitely shutting down this time! It’s due to shut on the 31st of December 2018 providing they still have enough stock to stay open, that being said they are running very low and selling a lot of things off cheap! So, if you want to stay warm and you prefer a bargain, Outdoor world is the place to be!

While we’re talking about December 31st let’s talk about New Years resolution, If like me, your resolution is to do with losing weight and getting healthy, I beg you to get a gym membership at a local gym rather than a big chain one. You’ll receive such better experiences and generally enjoy the social side too! If you’re local to me, Colne Valley CrossFit is amazing!! (I mean come on, who else am I going to recommend) Be sure to get in touch with them!

I love giving gifts that are personal so this year I’m super excited to be making a gift up and just buying a couple of extras to finish it up. Obviously I can’t say any more about it because the persons it’s for might be reading this and I really don’t wanna ruin the surprise ☺️☺️ personal gifts are a great idea if you’ve got the time because they mean so much more than the value of what you’ve paid for the things to make it, so consider doing that this year too, even if you’re not the best at creative craft/activities, you might surprise yourself!

I don’t know where or (when for that matter) I’ll be doing the rest of my shopping but it’ll likely be around the 23rd haha!

Where are your favourite places to shop?! Let me know in the comments

Happy mad Christmas shopping,
