Be an independent gifter

At the same time as #shopindie gift ideas platform UKGiftHour reached 10k followers on Twitter last week – the number of UKGiftHourPower sellers hit 150!

#UKGiftHourPower sellers are UK creatives and independent businesses who have achieved a sale as a result of posting their makes or products on #UKGiftHour #UKGiftAM on Twitter between 9am-midday every weekend.

To be strictly accurate, we know of one who has rung up a sale after posting on the #UKGiftAM Facebook page, too!

The honour of becoming the 150th indie to hear the #UKGiftHour #UKGiftAM tills ringing fell to Hertfordshire eco-soy wax candle creators SimplySona.

They take centre stage on this round-up of the latest #giftideas to have been snapped up recently (clockwise from top left):

  • Summer flowers coptic stitch notebook by Cambridge bookbinding specialist Handcrafted Books by Sue Day
