A few months ago, I had an idea for a giveaway I wanted to do for my readers and followers. I love y’all so damn much and wanted to do something nice as a thank you. But then I wondered how I could do more good from this giveaway, instead of just giving away an Amazon gift voucher for instance.
So for this giveaway, I’ve hand-selected 5 items from 5 different small businesses online that I love to include in one bundle for one lucky winner. I spent a long time sifting through businesses and recommendations online but I’m really happy with my choices and I know that you’ll love them too!
So below is a little bit about each small business I purchased from as well as the item from that business that the lucky winner will be receiving in their prize. Nothing in this post was gifted in exchange for this giveaway, I purchased everything with my own money to support the businesses. Scroll to the end of the post to enter the giveaway!
Sugar & Sloth
Sugar & Sloth have been on my radar for some time. I follow the Twitter account and am always struck by how cute and colourful the products are! Sugar & Sloth is a UK based small business, run by Anita, who creates and sells a number of items from gifts, cards, stationery, clothing and subscription boxes!
I chose this super cute Self Care Sloth pin for this giveaway because quite frankly, it was too cute to pass up. This pin also gives you the helpful reminder that self care isn’t selfish, which is something I always want my readers and followers to know and remember. And hopefully this pin can serve as a cute reminder!
Mary’s Jewellery Bakery
Next up in Mary’s Jewellery Bakery and I’ve purchased from Mary’s story a couple of times in the past. Once for myself and once for a friend, who absolutely loved what I picked for her. Mary sells beautiful, unique, handmade, whimsical jewellery – pieces you really won’t find anywhere else! I adore her galaxy and Princess collections but there’s really a little something for everyone!
I nabbed these super cute pair of Cherry Heart Earrings from the Simple Pleasures collection. I think this collection is SO cute and definitely fits in well with the theme of this giveaway, which is all things cute, self-care related and joyful!
The Flame Game Candle Co.
The next product I chose was from The Flame Game Candle Co. run by Ellie from Ellie’s Little World. Ellie’s candles and wax melts are all Vegan friendly and come in a wide range of scents, shapes and sizes! There’s so much to choose from and honestly, I’ve been wanting to purchase something for myself but truth it, I need to get through some of my candles at home first!
For this one, I didn’t want to go for anything that might be too strong for the recipient of this giveaway bundle but I tend to stay away from anything to floral or scented anyway, when it comes to candles. So I opted for the Coconut Milk & Honey melts which I think will be perfect for this time of year!
Leaf Lane Studio
Leaf Lane Studio was a small business recommended to me when I put a tweet out. I instantly fell in love with the products when I went on the website! Leaf Lane Studio is for all thing stationery in beautiful nature theme print. From wedding stationery to notebooks, washi tape to cards and prints and more.
Due to my love of organization but also living with gratitude and intention, I had to get this gorgeous tear-off daily planner to include in this giveaway. Not only does it help keep you organized but also encourages you to write down an affirmations, gratitude’s and also tasks that you can leave for tomorrow, so you know you’re not overworking and still have time for self care!
If you want to see what the planner looks like, then check out the link above. I didn’t want to un-wrap it for the photo.
Manifest & Magic
And finally, I had to grab something from Manifest & Magic, run by the lovely Lauren who I’ve worked with in the past on gift guides. Manifest & Magic is the GO-TO for all your crystal needs. Lauren sells beautiful crystal kits with specific crystals for whatever you need that little bit of guidance on!
I chose the crystal kit for self care and self love – of course! There was no other option for me really. I hope this kit will serve as a reminder, a grounding and a lesson that self care is important and you are worthy of self love. If you’re new to crystals as well, these sweet kits are the best place to start!
