Can you believe it is only 33 days until Christmas? I can’t! 

I really wanted to highlight some of my favourite indie businesses - from bath products, to jewellery and books! There will be something for everyone.

There are also plenty of people who don’t celebrate Christmas, but do like to give gifts around this time of year, and so many of us that give gifts all year round, so please feel free to keep coming back for more ideas.

Let’s get started!

 Fawn Press is a small independent and socially conscious publisher of extraordinarily beautiful poetry. “Poetry that takes you by the hand and leads you into the woods”.

The Elements anthology is An anthology of poetry inspired by the natural and supernatural elements of the universe and beyond.

From the molecular chaos of running water and the impatient budding of leaves in Spring, to the whispering aether that fills the darkness of night, this anthology will explore and celebrate the natural world, spiritual entities, and the forces at work all around us.

They also only use carbon-offset printers and compostable packaging.

Fawn Press was only founded in 2021 and is not funded by large arts bodies, so support of this debut publication will be invested into publishing emerging and underrepresented writers in our upcoming series of single poet pamphlets in the spring.


Caitlin Daw Studio makes funky statement earrings and homeware powered by a love of groovy girl power graphics and dreamy colour inspo! They use Jesmonite (an eco alternative to traditional resin), to create terrazzo and cow print patterned pieces in gorgeous colour combos. No two pieces are the same - each one will always be one of a kind.

Currently working on a made-to-order basis, means no wasted stock piling up waiting to be sold, and no more resources used than necessary. In true slow-fashion style, using Jesmonite as a material allows for any leftover material to be recycled - as any offcuts and waste can be reused by being broken back down into chips to be used in terrazzo.

Over at Silly Girl Club they use a big love of cartoons to recycle vintage sheets into killer new products. Making everything from earrings & festival bumbags to smock dresses & smart shirts. Ttheir hope by repurposing unwanted items that it will give these fabrics an extended life and therefore save them from landfill!



Self care but make it spooky!! An alternative bath bomb business delivering fresh, creepy and frighteningly colourful bath treats to satisfy your spooky side all year round, not just for Halloween!
Hand made, environmentally friendly products packaged in planet friendly materials, The Creepy Peach creates bath bombs, solid bubble bath bars, soaps and reusable cotton scrub squares all with a spooky, Halloween and horror theme - so you never have to settle for an ordinary bath time experience again!


Rad Melts is a female owned and run business inspired by emo, pop punk, metal and alt rock music and subculture. You can find everything from My Chemical Romance wax melt selection boxes, to Death Metal inspired candles, and album inspired snap bars - Blink 182, Paramore, Biffy Clyro and much more! Every product is made with vegan, cruelty fragrances and comes in biodegradable and recyclable packaging.


Studio Pepita is a colourful accessories brand on a mission; proving you don’t have to sacrifice your style to be kind to the planet. Our joyful eco resin hair clips and jewellery are inspired by memphis milano design, charity shop finds, and all things bright and bizarre.





Killrbangz makes bangin’ bling for bad babes ‘n’ killer merch for the rule breakers, rebels ‘n’ misfits! Fierce jewellery and art designed in Birmingham by disabled designer Marie. With a background in fashion design, motorbike apparel and advocacy for women, Marie creates pieces inspired by all things from vintage style to b movies, wild west and biker style to gothic architecture and desert landscapes. With a love for the bad girl movie icon Marie likes her work to inspire confidence and empower.



Elevating erotic bakes beyond a pair of fondants breasts in a football shirt, Kween Kream is a UK based Queer bakery inspired by those who love to unapologetically be themselves. Kween Kream was founded in London, after working in some of the most established kitchen’s, the mastermind behind Kween Kream realised the scene was becoming dull and over saturated by people making the same sweet treats. They decided to go left and reinvent a market for themselves. You’ll find them putting a spin on the ‘trends’ by making it filthy. They are not for everyone and accept that, they are here for those who like to get weird!

You can find them on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter or visit our website at Kweenkream.co.uk. They also take custom orders, so feel free to email them at info@kweenkream.co.uk
