On the approach to December, the majority of us aim or hope to be underway with our Christmas shopping and those of us who are really organised are probably already finished and wrapped. In light of the recent economic struggles, it is more important now more than ever to show our appreciation and support for independent businesses. It can sometimes be a little tricky to support small businesses as they are not always the cheapest method, especially compared to global giants such as amazon which is understandable. If you feel it can be difficult to support a small independent business it is always important to remember that in the majority of cases, a small business will be more eco friendly, their products are hand made or sourced locally, you are helping a family live comfortably and it helps fund your community.
In this gift guide, we have put together some of our favourite products which we think would make someone really happy, we also have some little bits and bobs which would create lovely stocking fillers for a loved one.
In line first is our luxurious sheepskin footwear, the majority of our moccasins and sheepskin footwear is crafted in the UK or Europe, we always ensure these workshops meet up to the usual high standards of craftsmanship and that the finished product is of quality.
It is the perfect time to treat yourself or someone to some of our beautiful crafted moccasins, these are made in the West Country of England and we have a wide range of styles, colours, materials to suit everyone. If you prefer a mule or boot, we have full stock of our Shepherd of Sweden collection, each year this collection moves so fast, we always recommend ordering early to avoid disappointment. Our price ranges throughout our sheepskin footwear range varies substantially, so you are highly likely to find something to suit your budget.
If you are after some socks to go with your footwear, for the first time we have now introduced socks into our collection of clothing. Our socks are sourced from trusted stockists who do not use any nasty chemicals or fibres. If you want a light sock we have a cheerful collection from Doris & Dude, they are made using sustainable organic cotton and bamboo with antibacterial properties, no nasties here. We also have some lovely thick natural wool socks in a variety of knits and colours, great stocking fillers.
