Girl Tribe Gang is brimming with hugely talented business owners who design, craft and create products from every industry and niche. What better way to showcase just a fraction of their excellent wares than with a GTG Gift List collection? This is perfect for Christmas present inspiration and to support female-led small and local businesses in what they do best.
We asked our members to share their best Christmas gift ideas with us and here’s a sample of the incredible array of goodies on offer across our network of Tribes throughout the UK.
For the home
Wool laundry balls
LITTLE BEAU SHEEP 100% wool laundry balls help soften clothes naturally, increasing fluffiness as the dryer tumbles, eliminating the need for fabric softeners or dryer sheets. They are also much quieter and more environmentally friendly than the plastic alternatives. Just pop all three balls into the dryer for a small load of laundry. Or for larger, more heavy duty loads I’d recommend six or more. They can be scented with laundry fragrances to add a natural fragrance to your laundry. Just add a few drops to each ball and add to your tumble dryer. In between loads they can also be used to keep your sock drawers smelling wonderful!
This quirky set of Cocktail Christmas Baubles will certainly bring the fun factor to your festive interior scheme! Sold as a set of 3 baubles, these beautiful modern glass ornaments are finished with silver string so they are ready to hang straight on to your Christmas Tree. These trendy hanging decorations come in a lovely festive box so would make a great gift. Make mine a Margarita!
Lots of people have started joining in the Christmas tradition of Christmas Eve boxes. If you don’t have a box, an alternative is a… basket! It can be used for different things throughout the year or storing the presents from Santa but it will always look nice and has a million other uses. Maybe you could make an adults basket instead of one for the children? Exclusive to Choice Baskets, these baskets have a removable lining in cream, black or cottage rose, lid, and faux leather hinges. They are very sturdy with wooden posts in each corner, which means they can be stacked on top of each other to maximise space and storage solutions. All sizes excluding the X-Small have integral carrying handles in the shorter sides.
High resolution Giclée prints of original watercolour paintings of a wide variety of animals. Customisable with names, sayings and alphabet letters to make your print one of a kind. Each print is hand signed and dated on the reverse and available in size A6, A4 and A3. You can buy in pre-designed sets (Safari, Arctic, Farm etc) or pick and choose the animals of your preference to make a custom set.
These wooden carts are perfect for storing books or toys, or as a Nordic-inspired Christmas Eve box. Varnished, painted and built by hand, each box is personalised with a name or initial and there are a number of designs and colours to choose from (plus a special festive lining for carts with a Christmas design). Available in two sizes, both with optional wheels and rope, prices start at £25 plus postage. These carts are made to order and the Christmas order book is closing very soon, with limited carts available in time for Christmas delivery.
First Aid never looked so cute! Perfect for the handbag or car, these ouch pouches are packed to the brim with all the First Aid essentials a mum on the run might need.
