Ho ho ho! Its that time of year again where I will be showcasing some of the best presents for that special someone, and they are all presents you can buy locally, rather than having to travel to MK or beyond!

In this guide we take a look at our favourite indepent gifts for Christmas 2021! 

I am particularly excited about this guide because it really does show how many cool things can be bought right our our doorstep.

Pin clothing

Reuseable Cotton Face pads – 50p each!

Eco Friendly – Plastic Free – Zero Waste.

Reusable face pads are made a cotton bamboo towelling one side and a soft cotton print on the other side.

Pads are machine washable (& can be tumble dried!)

Each pad measures roughly 8.5cm square.

Choose from either –

Soft towelling (best for applying products like toners)

Or scrubby towelling (best for make up removal)

The cotton print side is made using the offcuts left over from making clothing, reducing waste from the business and saving them from landfill.

Please note that every pad is unique so the towelling colour and cotton print will vary from what is on show, a pad of your choice (soft or scrubby) will be chosen at random, but if you love what we do you’ll love what prints we’ve chosen for you!
