Beauty and wellbeing gift guide

Updated: Nov 18, 2020

If you've been around here before and follow me over on Instagram you will know that I love a scented candle and natural skincare. In this gift guide, I share some lovely small businesses to support this Christmas if you are looking for a beauty and wellness gift.

Wellness to me includes anything that makes us feel good so this guide includes products to help us relax, yoga mats and mindset products.

Tag me over on Instagram, @small_business_collaborative, if you decide to pick up anything from any of these wonderful small businesses.

Little bit different

Little bit different crates hand-poured candles using vegan soy wax and oils to create beautifully fragranced candles with gorgeous high-quality labelling that stands out from the crowd. The range includes Welsh language labelling and a range of very popular man candles which are fragranced with men in mind but are popular with everyone.

The business is family-run, Victoria creates the candles, her husband runs the IT and design side, her mum does the packaging and her daughter works on social media.

What I love: That Victoria caters to the Welsh market and the rest of the UK. Catering to different languages is a great way to appeal to a wider market.

Fun fact: I created a batch of candles for my wedding in 2009 because I couldn't find any I liked. They were so popular with guests that a year later I began selling them at local markets. They can now be found in 60 stockists in Wales.
