Christmas Shopping the Just a Card Way

By Sarah Cowan

If you've been keeping up with the Just a Card blog over the last seven months then you'll have seen us featuring some amazing independent artists, designers, makers and shops.

Christmas tends to be the busiest time of the year for independents and designer makers as people search for something unique to give to someone special.

Well search no more! Here we bring you a reminder of some of the fantastic businesses we have featured on our blog, along with some of our favourite gift ideas from our fabulous supporters - just in time for the festive season.

Yes, it's Christmas shopping the Just a Card way!

Below you will find my top ten picks across four categories - Christmas cards, gifts under £15, gifts under £50 and gifts under £100, along with the all important information you’ll need to find out where to buy them. We were inundated with entries, and it was genuinely difficult to narrow it down this far. But I can honestly say that every single thing featured here is gorgeous!
