#shopindie - and make it posthaste!

#postagiftday delivered first class #shopindie gift ideas from UK independent and creative businesses.

The special theme day on the #UKGiftHour #UKGiftAM Twitter marketplace unwrapped packets of post-friendly inspiration – from original art prints, stationery and jewellery to bags, cosmetics and homeware.

We’ll be following up on it a lot more but for now we’re focussing on the most post-friendly aspect of all – gift ideas that came with free P&P!

Clockwise from top left in our picture (above):

  • Bookmarks are one of the handiest gifts to pop in the post and Devon bookmark specialists VanityFairGifts told us all of their magnificent markers came with free UK postage.
  • Crochet baby shark cocoon described by Warwickshire handcrafter FluffyKnittens as great for pram, cot or new born photography. Great for posting too - and it's in her sale.
  • All necklaces and earrings offered by Lincoln hand-etched glass virtuoso CreateEngland fit the bill for stocking fillers and Secret Santa. And at low prices with free UK P&P, for posting as well.
  • Lovely wildlife bookplates were just one of the gift ideas that Sussex artist bySWTeal said were being offered with free UK P&P in her shop.
  • Friendship was well and truly extended by Nottingham's gorgeous gifters Five Little Piggies Gifts who presented this celebratory stretch silver bead bracelet with free shipping.
  • Notebooks are very post-friendly too – there’s free postage on this A6 lined book with hand-drawn cover from London card aces SthDifferentCards and others can be made to order.
  • Here’s a felt ornament that will hop into the post with no problem – bunnies were just one of a menagerie of cuties offered by London handmade hotshots PrettyHopsandJumps with worldwide free postage.
  • Buttercup moon from LapinLuneStudio – whose resin jewellery is made from flowers grown in the Breton countryside and is despatched free to the UK and EU.
