I adore supporting small businesses, throughout 2018 I supported just a couple, Fizzy Smelts, Geeky Melts and EllesDoodleBox to name a few. 2019 is going to be no different, I’m starting the year off right by supporting Leviko Designs, an independent store located in Edinburgh. Louise, the owner and designer of the jewellery, produces handmade bespoke quality pieces.
They can be tailor-made to your set specifications and are all presented in a beautiful gift box. Louise established Leviko Designs in 2016 following the birth of her first child. Looking for a creative outlet she was introduced to the Japanese Art of Kumihimo and quickly fell in love with the variety, versatility and relaxation which comes from it.
There’s nothing better than snuggling into a blanket with a candle flickering in the Winter, with Christmas just around the corner there are some great festive candles to be lit. A candle can bring warmth to any room, what I love most is when the scent fills the room, especially if it’s something such as Cinnamon Stick and Spiced Orange. I much prefer wax melts, they’re becoming really popular.
You don’t have to worry about a naked flame and it will still fill the room with a lovely scent, sometimes the main reason for burning a candle. There are some great scents out there for wax melts, I swear it opens the door for inventions and there’s a lot more variety than candles. I recently reviewed Geeky Melts, the brainchild of Laura, an all-around geek and zombie enthusiast.

This Christmas, why not visit a small business to purchase your gifts from, over the past couple of months I’ve brought from a couple of small businesses. There are so many good businesses out there that hopefully will allow you to shop for almost anyone. Also, I don’t know about you but I swear it leaves such a good feeling in yourself.
I always try to explore places such as Etsy to come across gifts, with a simple search you can uncover a variety of gifts. Just be careful you don’t spend the whole day searching, once you start, it’s very hard to stop. I have got lost in Etsy a couple of times, thankfully I do purchase a couple of things, maybe more than I should have.
Today, I wanted to share with you a couple of small businesses in this handy Small Business Gift Guide.

I adore supporting small businesses, as described in my How to Support Small Businesses post one of the easiest ways to support is to blog about them. I recently received a couple of goodies from Geeky Melts, home of Geeky soy wax melts. I have been supporting Geeky Melts for a little while now, it’s been great to watch the store grow and add new products.
All of her products are handmade by herself, congratulations go out to her here as she does this around her two years old! People like this are just so inspiring nothing stops them from being creative and doing what they love. Geeky Melts is the brainchild of Laura, an all-around geek, zombie enthusiast and cat lady.
Geeky Melts are made from biodegradable soy wax and high-quality vegan fragrance oil. Only biodegradable glitter is used so the sparkles are guilt free. Most of Geeky Melts wax packaging is plastic free and compostable, and whenever possible Laura even reuses postal materials too.
