Christmas Present Gift Guide
In recent years we have all suffered in some form or another. This is particularly true for small and independent businesses they have certainly been hit hard by the whole pandemic situation.
We wanted to let you know about some great local products that make for wonderful presents. We have gift ideas for explorers, outdoor lovers, and those that like a bit of pampering. What is more is they are all from local Cornish companies.
By buying from one of these small businesses, you are helping to support a small and independent local business whilst contributing to the Cornish economy. By spending locally, the money is kept in the community and helps to support the community as well as growing other businesses.
Local suppliers offer quality products, so you know you are gifting loved ones something premium, special and made to last. Also, products are more likely to be sustainably sourced and therefore, better for the environment.
Additionally, you may find a more quirky or unusual gift than you would from a major retailer.
We hope you are inspired and find the right gift or perhaps a little something special for yourself.
