The year has been tumultuous – to say the least – and it’s no doubt that most of us will be spending its last few weeks in a pensive state of reflection. As Michael Bublé prepares for defrost and we furiously add Mariah Carey to our playlists, the incentive of a forthcoming season of festivities is carrying us through the next few weeks like the prospect of a post-night out jaunt to the takeaway (remember nights out?). Sure, it might be mid-November, any other year and the whisper of the ‘C’ word would be very un-PC, but let’s hang the stockings, stick a sickly-sweet Netflix original on and settle in for an afternoon of seasonal shopping.

2020 has got us all celebrating small; from small pleasures to small wins, we’ve learned to find contentment in the simplicity. With this in mind, it’s only virtuous that we support our small, local, and independent businesses. We’ve all fallen victim to the siren call of free next-day delivery but, in true Christmas spirit, it’s time to give back. So, let us give back to you. Here at House of Coco, the team has rounded up their favourite independent mavericks and gilded gifts for you to choose from for that special someone. It might be the season of sharing but, be warned, you might end up treating yourself in the process
