W&W Wishlist - Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with String...

One of the best things about the festive season is the chance to treat loved ones to a gorgeous present and here at W&W we love the idea of finding unique, individual gifts from smaller independent brands, just like us.

When you shop small you're buying originality, and showing imagination whilst supporting independent shop owners and their families.

We are so lucky here in York, we have a plethora of 'Indie Quarters' including areas like Fossgate, Swinegate, Gillygate and Bisopthorpe Road and of course there's always the option to shop online for one a kind gems.

Everything in our edit is under £50 and we only recommend items that we have personally used or would really like to try ourselves. Plus, with some of these purchases a percentage of the sale goes to a charity they support, so its win win really.

Therefore, its time to name drop a few small but mighty indie brands to help you with your choices this gifting season and in turn build a community spirit all across the UK.




Voak Natural Soy Wax Candles £15.50



 Kokepotmama  Pots individually priced on request


 Peekawoo Long Tunic Blouse £14


 Cult of Youth Jewelled Star Hoops £40 


 Dreamonstagram Make Mistakes Club Adult T Shirt £30


 Majomedicine Face Food Age Well Cream £48


 Young Double Future Artist T Shirt from £15


 Cheese Trader The Fruity Kitchen Chutney from £5


We'd personally be happy to receive any of these (...hint hint) and think they'll be a sure fire hit this Christmas.

Shop small and spread the joy this Christmas!
