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.

Are you a Dragon lover like me, or do you know someone that is, well this Baby Dragon gift makes a wonderful keepsake, and because it’s made by a Dragon Fanatic it’s made with love. This hand cast polymer clay Baby Dragon is finished with Genuine Metal Leaf, set with an Antique Gold effect. The cute Dragon rests on a birch branch chip which lays on a bed of soft silver moss, all curled up in a glass orb.

My personalised family tree pictures are unlike anything else on the market. They have been hugely popular and are ideal as a gift for that someone who has everything! There are two sizes of frame available; the smaller one measuring 28x33cm is ideal for up to 8 names whilst the larger frame measuring 34x44cm is more suitable for larger or extended families. Each size of frame comes in a choice of contemporary white or oak effect finish. The family name or other inscription can be added at the bottom of the tree and you can even include beloved family pets. As each tiny piece is individually hand cut, no two are ever the same.
