We’re calling into Yorkshire as we continue our round-Britain tour of UK indies and creatives who grace the timeline of #UKGiftAM, our weekend #shopindie Twitter marketplace.

Yorkshire makers and designers all have the character and ingenuity associated with the White Rose county – as we hope our gift ideas selection shows.

It’s not a definitive list –we’ll be back to highlight more from this talent-packed county after we’ve visited other UK regions.

Clockwise (from top left):

Glorious gargoyles, goddesses and all manner of animal and bird sculptures are the speciality of Sheffield stonemason Natural Stone Carved Creations

Fun Yorkshire-themed clothing, gifts and greetings cards from Nidderdale’s Fettle. A tidy 50p from every item sold goes to local charities
