Helen Lloyd - Country Mouse

It’s the season for giving, and what better way to show you care than by supporting a small business this Christmas? In today’s world it’s more important than ever to shop small and support small businesses.

The third of December 2022 is small business Saturday and what better excuse to go and support your local high street, favourite online retailer or take a trip to your favourite Christmas market. I am lucky, I have Bath right on my doorstep and its a great way to get into the festive mood. 

Here are three reasons why you should shop small this Christmas

1) Amazing Gifts

When you shop small, you’re more likely to find wonderful gifts that you wouldn’t see in the bigger online or chain shops on the high street.

When you shop small, you can find one-of-a-kind gifts that your friends and family are sure to appreciate, not to mention, handmade gifts often come with a personal touch that mass-produced items lack.

Plus, you are helping to support a small business. 

2) Brilliant Customer Service

In such a hustle-and-bustle time of year, it’s more important than ever to receive excellent customer service. I really try hard to provide my customers with great customer service.

When you buy from a small business, you can usually  be sure that the owner will take the time to help you find the perfect gift.

Small businesses do what they do because they're passionate about their products which often means they take the time to get to know their customers more.

This personal touch can make all the difference when it comes to finding the right gift. Plus, small businesses will often go the extra mile to ensure you're happy with your purchase.

Not only do small business owners have great customer service, but they will have in-depth product knowledge. 

3) That Feel-Good Warm  Feeling

When you shop small, not only are you buying unique gifts and experiencing amazing customer service — you’ll also be getting that warm happy feeling knowing that you supported a small business owner during their busiest time of year.

It truly is a win-win for everyone involved! When you spend money with a small business it usually remains in the local community and makes a big difference to that business owner.

Here are  three great reasons why you should do your Christmas shopping with the small businesses this year, You'll find unique gifts, receive excellent customer service, and get a warm happy feeling knowing that you're supporting a small business owner.

So forget going to the chain stores or a big online retailer and support your favourite makers, artists and independent businesses.

For the ultimate gift this Christmas, consider a merino wool blanket.
