Can you believe Christmas is almost upon us?! If you've been to my shop lately, or follow me on social media, you might have seen that I've designed some printable advent calendars. They feature cute Christmas graphics, are inexpensive and can be easily printed at home. While it may be easy to choose an advent calendar, it can be hard choosing nice gifts for the calendar, especially ones that are small enough and don't cost the earth. So I've done the hard work for you and found 24 handmade products, perfect for your advent calendar. Best of all (providing the exchange rate behaves and stays the same!) all of the items are under £10.
On the 3rd day, it's probably time to start thinking about Christmas shopping. In England stores have stopped providing plastic bags (yay for the environment!), so this shopping tote from ZO-HAN is a perfect pre-Christmas gift.
For day 8, I'm thinking this cushion cover from ZO-HAN is a great choice. There's lots of different prints to choose from - I went for the striking polka dot and gold foil option.
There were another couple of items I liked for the home. This pretty ring dish is customised with your choice of initial and will be made just for you in Slovenia by TatjanaCeramics. I have to be honest and say I'm not usually a fan of felt, however I loved the modern hexagonal design of these coasters by fmdesign and have put them on my wish list.
It's cold outside so a handmade scarf will come in very handy. This option is from Loutik, I love the blue tones together for a modern look. For day 14, I've chosen a phone case, because if you're anything like me and drop your phone a lot, this can be a lifesaver. These pretty combination of pastel colours and marble is from ZO-HAN.
By December 15th, we're already half way through the month, so it's time to get those New Years Eve plans sorted. This digital download can be customised to your party and easily printed at home. While we talk stationary, I've also suggested some thank you cards so you the recipient can show appreciation for the gifts already received. Both digital downloads are my designs from the 29andSeptember shop.
By day 17, people start to get a bit stressed and last minute panic sets in. So I've chosen this eye mask from LOVARTI to ensure the recipient can get a good nights rest.
Last but not least, my choice for Christmas eve would be this delicate and detailed tea light holder from 13gramm.
