I’m a huge fan of shopping small, independent or handmade. Christmas is no exception. I do shop from big retailers or brands, don’t get me wrong.

I’ve browsed through Etsy stores and found 10 products that stood out to me. These were chosen because they are all meaningful to me in some way. I love using stationery in a positive way in my life. Writing letters to loved ones, journaling (which is a good for my mental health and self-care routine), crafting or just being inspired by beautiful artwork or motivational quotes. I decided to choose products that range in value but all of them are under £30 each, as it’s just a little better for the budget at this time.
