sales power to UK indies!

With the all-important Christmas season getting ever closer, we’re delighted to report more #giftideas power to UK indies and creatives!

Here’s the latest rundown of original and thoughtful gifts that buyers have snapped up during our three-hour Saturday morning and #Sunday morning Twitter marketplace.

Clockwise from top left:

  • South Wales outdoor gift specialists Adventure Accessories kicked off last week’s #UKGiftHour #UKGiftAM hailing a #UKGiftHourPower sale – we don’t know if it was for these crochet ear warmer headbands but they’re worth recommending too!
  • Cambridge traditional bookbinder CraftedBooksBySueDay reported another ker-ching during #UKGiftAM for her popular palm-size journal/notebook wrap, handcrafted using vegan and eco-friendly Portuguese cork
  • The ‘amazing craftsmanship’ of Isle of Wight eco bag designer SammDesigns was highlighted by delighted customer Whispers of Wood, who added: “My friend will be so thrilled to receive it as a very special gift.”
  • They’re slow burners but #UKGiftHour sales began to take-off for these handmade wooden log candle holders by Herefordshire wood creatives Goodmans Handmade
  • No need to travel back in time – now was the ideal moment for a customer to buy this Doctor Who style scarf by South East knitter extraordinaire Granny’s Fireside, one of #shopindie collective under the umbrella of London fashion designer Masato Jones
  • #UKGiftHourPower struck again for East Sussex jewellery designer MaisyPlum when she received a custom order one of her exquisite pill boxes
  • Silver tree of life earrings by Yorkshire jewellery designer TwiggyPeasticks didn’t take long to find a new owner – posted on Saturday’s #UKGiftAM, it was announced on Sunday they’d been sold
  • Sussex woodturner and artist MJA Wood attributed an order for his ‘C’ walking stick to positive feedback he had received to his ‘B’ walking stick on #UKGiftHour
  • Centre – with Halloween approaching, there had to be interest in these cute pumpkin beanie hats by Buckinghamshire maker Bettysmumknits. And indeed another #UKGiftAM sale was rung up!

If you're selling or looking for gift ideas - or just like to spend time in fun and supportive company - there's always a welcome and plenty of inspiration at #UKGiftHour #UKGiftAM from 9am-midday every Saturday and Sunday.
