Are you like me and leave your Christmas shopping till the last minute? Every year I tell myself that I will be more organised, but it never happens. Luckily I have worked (through my time on the Superfast Business Cornwall Project) and work with some awesome businesses who make great products. So I know exactly where to go for the perfect Christmas gift.
If you are stuck for present ideas, here are a few of those amazing local businesses and their awesome products!
Green and Blue
Green and Blue are based in Perranporth and have a large range of stylish and beautifully designed eco and nature products. These include their famous Bee Bricks and Birdballs, which are ideal for any garden, bird or nature lover.
Not only are their products Eco friendly, using recycled materials, but their whole passion and their ethos flows throughout the business, which earned them being awarded as a B Corp organisation, a year ago.
You can be safe in the knowledge that not only will you be giving someone a beautiful product, whilst helping a local business, but also helping the environment.
Single Fin Collective
The Single Fin Collective, was started by two surfers, Chez and Sam, who have taken their inspiration from surfing, the Cornish coast, nature and their travels abroad.
Their range of prints, include the sealife range, Cornish beaches, renowned surf spots, Retro surf prints and mountain landscapes.
Their new site is coming soon, but you can order their prints, greetings cards, bags and mugs from their Etsy Shop until the 20th of December.
Kernowfornia are not a client of ours, but we love their products and the business’s environmental credentials and their overall ethos.
Inspired by Banksy and stencilling, Kernowfornia produces hand printed t-shirts & hoodies from the heart of British surfing. When Ben is not surfing, or dreaming of waves, he is coming up with more awesome designs.
Ben ensures that the materials are made from 100% organic cotton, using verified ethical manufacturing conditions, in facilities powered by green renewable energy.
Checkout the Kernowfornia site and kit out the whole family.
Devon Cove Vodka
Devon Cove Vodka is a new business based on a farm above Hope Cove, Devon. They distill a smooth vodka, ideal for drinking on its own or mixed into a cocktail.
The exceptional vodka is created using King Edward potatoes, grown on the family farm overlooking Hope Cove in South Devon. They are already stocking their awesome vodka in many places, checkout their website for stockists, but can be found at one of the many Christmas markets.
