11 MORE brands that want to work with YOU on gift guides.

I can’t believe it’s officially October! Christmas is already starting to creep closer and closer and that means it’s time to get tackling your Christmas gift guides! We had a bit of a debate over on our blogging facebook group about Christmas gift guides and I’d love to hear your plan of action. Do you stick with just the one or make a series of super-niche guides? How do you ensure the products are top value and worth your recommendations?

With that in mind, last week I shared ’10 small brands looking to work with gift guide bloggers’ part 1, and Today, we’re back with part 2. So if you’re looking to uncover some amazing small brands and make connections-here’s 11 more brands that should be on your radar.

Words are often the hardest things to etch! Any minor wobble in their etched lines stands out because we do actually look carefully at text. . Here is one of my favourite etched book bottles.
