As a company based in Nottingham and with Christmas just around the corner, we wanted to create a Christmas Gift Guide that is not only helpful but also supports local businesses around Nottingham. Some of these businesses are our Premier Partners and others are whom we would love to support. The good thing about these businesses is that they are all online, no need to go out into the cold, you can stay safe and order gifts for your loved ones in a few clicks. Nottingham is full of unique, special and independent businesses so here are the ones we decided to include in our Christmas Gift Guide 2021.
August Moon Tea
We have recently rekindled our partnership with August Moon Tea. August Moon used to be a Premier Partner at Link3 when they were based in Nottingham but since they moved our clients and candidates were no longer able to attend a tea ceremony. However, August Moon have an online shop and we are so pleased to announce that our Loyalty Card Members can grab 10% off using a code!
You are able to find the most beautiful and elegant teacups, the finest section of tea and a precious selection of jewellery. Here are some of our favourite’s from their website: Square Bamboo Tea Tray/Boat , Celandon Hand-carving Teacup , Black Goji Berry with Rose Petal, August Moon High Mountain Green Tea, and Rainbow Porcelain Tea Set.
Flying Fig Studio
Flying Fig Studio are a recent Premier Partner of ours and they have a wide range of unique and personalised gifts for yourself or a loved one. Everything you see at Flying Fig is designed, handmade to order and packed in lovely plastic-free packaging by Karla at her studio in Nottingham. Karla believes that when something is made with love, it is just that little bit more special and whilst we are on the topic of special, Karla has recently got a new dog called Dougal. He is adorable! Everything is cruelty-free, vegan- friendly and all their packaging is plastic-free and either recyclable or compostable. There is a wide range of gifts on their website, suitable for a wide range of people. We love all of the items on Flying Fig but we especially love their Star Map items: Personalised Night Sky Star Map Mug, Personalised Star Map Engraved Wooden Memory Box, Personalised Night Sky Star Map Cushion and Personalised Night Sky Star Map Print
