Gift Ideas – Made in The United Kingdom!
This year I have become a more discerning shopper and have made a concerted effort to source my style from designers/retailers who manufacture in the UK and USA. I have always veered to quality and positively go weak at the knees over exquisite designer creations but lately I am much more concerned with where my latest lust-fors are made – indeed I will no longer shell out for expensive high-end labels if they are made in China when fabulous style alternatives exist created on home ground.
Although I happily live in the USA, I am a Brit at heart and could not let this festive season go by without showcasing fabulous gift ideas made in the grand isles of old blighty! Not only are these featured retailers passionate about sourcing materials and fabrics in the UK but are equally dedicated to utilizing the talents of British craftsmen while adhering to ethical and responsible trading practices – I for one would be happy to find any of these gifts under my Xmas tree! Happy Holidays!
