It’s that time of the year again. The time when we create our lists of presents to give to friends and family for Christmas. You would think that now we have the whole world at our fingertips to buy from that choosing what to get would be easier. Unfortunately, I often find that whilst fun and helping me to feel festive, I can become overwhelmed with the choice.
Let us help you by offering a choice of professionally handcrafted items from our members. In each part of this seasonal guide I will be popping over to visit each of our members and will provide for you one of their beautiful creations. You will also be able to visit them yourself and see what other wonderful things they have to offer. Don’t forget that each of these pieces is created by hand so almost all of the businesses accept bespoke orders and many can be personalised.
Buying from a small business owner will not only provide you with a thoughtfully created gift to give but also help the owner. You will be allowing them to continue to do the things they love and provide for their families. It is the gift that keeps on giving.
Buy handmade this Christmas and make the difference to everyone.
Let us start off with our first selection of gifts.
This beautiful necklace comprised of a solid 925 Sterling Silver Chain and a silver owl with a vibrant bright blue Swarovski Crystal in the centre.

Memory keepsakes (bears) are typically made out of cherished clothing to commemorate a special event, mark a milestone in a person’s life or to remember a loved one young or old. Each keepsake from annadoos is a bespoke creation individually hand crafted from cherished clothing or fabrics. They are all one-off and no two keepsakes are ever the same.
