So this year I thought I'd give a shout out to some gorgeous little online stores that you can actually take pleasure in shopping at this Christmas, and your family and friends will be thrilled with their unique gifts too.
I should add that if you are my own family and friends don't get too excited - not all of these gifts come under my generous £5 limit.
1. Rigby and Mac
I could happily choose one of absolutely everything featured on this site. It is all just gorgeous. Divided into three 'shops' it allows you to browse according to your taste - it's impossible not to love everything in all of them though. Just look at those Babushka Salt and Pepper shakers - ridiculously cute - what sister \ mother \ aunt \ friend wouldn't love to unwrap those this Christmas?
My only issue - and quite a large one if you're me - they don't ship to Ireland! *sob*
2. The Green Door Bookshop
Sounds perfect. And you only have to take one look at their site to see that's it all true.
3. When I was a Kid
4. Regal Rose
That's just four of my favourites - I'm sure lots of you have others to suggest so feel free to add a link in the comments and share the love.
Now I'm off to write my own Christmas list - what do you think are the chances of me getting one of everything here?
BTW -this is NOT a sponsored post - just sites that I love. I will however be reviewing some books from The Green Door Bookshop soon - but only 'cause I love it.
