This year has been challenging. But, the end is just around the corner! We’re very excited for what awaits us in 2021. This is why our 2020 holiday gifting is all the more special. We want to let our loved ones know we’re thinking about them, whether we’re together or apart, and we want to support other small businesses.
Our team has put together a holiday gift guide including our favorite small, local shops and brands in honour of Black Friday today AND Small Business Saturday (28 November).
Sort out your gifting needs and help small businesses by letting them know you haven’t forgotten about them.
Here are our hot takes:
Emone: London-based, hand-poured candles. Their body-shaped candles are one of our top picks. We think this would make a beautiful and unique gift for that interior-loving friend.
Liha Beauty: This black-founded, London-based beauty brand is on a mission to keep West African traditions alive and celebrate British practices through botanical and aromatherapy expertise. Our favorite product is theirIvory Shea Butter, we promise it’ll leave your skin smooth and glowy.
HIGHR Collective: This lipstick brand is on a mission to create more sustainable, organic and effective products. Their lipstick shades are killers and this one is definitely going to that make-up obsessed friend.
Glow Bar: An oasis right in the middle of central London, Glow Bar is a space for women to take a break and focus on their well-being. From infrared saunas to Ashwagandha-spiked lattes, this space is a gem in London. Take a friend to sweat all the holiday excesses out and sip some body-renewing potions.
Lion/ne: Soho and Notting Hill-based skin consultants, we love Lion/ne’s commitment to authenticity, truly transparent and independent from working with brands, they listen to your skin and act accordingly to its needs. For the skin junkie, you know what to get!
Elizabeth Scarlett: Artist Elizabeth Scarlett’s designs are like an escape from London’s busy city life. Her pouches are perfect to store and carry our beauty products anywhere we go, the ultimate beauty accessory for that friend who can’t wait to get on a plane!
Anna Philip: we love Anna Philip’s earrings, this is a hand made and carefully curated London-based luxury lifestyle brand. Their ethos is all about treating yourself, and we’re here for it, so treat a friend or family member with a hand crafted, unique piece.
