The Indie Oxford Christmas Gift Guide 2020!

 In Inspiration

A Christmas gift guide really needs no introduction – especially when the gifts ideas are as good as these! – but this one is extra special because all of these items are from small, independent Oxfordshire based businesses who, over the last year have worked so incredibly hard to adapt, try our new ideas, and provide for their communities.

And so this gift guide is also a bug hurrah to the brave, kind and determined indies of Oxfordshire who’s gifts will be spreading joy to friends, family and loved ones across the region, the UK and sometimes across the world!

Without further ado, here is our Indie Oxford Christmas Gift Guide 2020!
