Blogmas Day 6 – Not On The High Street Christmas Favourites

All the way back in July, I went to the Not On The High Street Christmas Press Day. At the time the big day seamed like a really long way away, but now with a matter of weeks to go, I’m feeling far more ready to share my highlights from the day.

As I mentioned at the beginning of Blogmas, I want to buy the majority of my gifts from small businesses where possible, so this is a great place to start.

The marbled cracker is absolutely gorgeous and who couldn’t fall in love with a quirky flamingo plate. That gold cutlery needs to find its way to my table all year round, definitely not just for Christmas.
