The last few years have been tough on small businesses and Christmas is a great time to show your support. Why not choose some lovely personal gifts from the independents on our local high street this year? I’ve listed some of my favourites here and some of them have special offers just for us! 

For the grownups

Tropic have lots of great skincare products for the ladies and men in your family, all totally organic, vegan free and eco friendly packaging.

Create your very own bespoke hamper with tasty treats and culinary delights from Laura’s Larder, or surprise them with a gift voucher.

Treat them to a meal out in one of our local restaurants by purchasing a voucher – there’s plenty to choose from including Chapter One.

For the golfer in the house, there are plenty of things to buy from Chelsfield Lakes, pop into the shop, buy a voucher, get them some lessons or even buy them a round.

A night out on you! how about a trip to the theatre – a great present for all ages.

Greyhouse is a lovely online and local boutique selling high quality clothing and accessories at affordable prices.

Vault and Vine is a local wine bar who do lovely afternoon teas and also wine tasting events ideal gift for that someone special.

Mount Vineyard is also great for vouchers or pop along to the 10 acres shop and find great gifts in store – my personal fave are the candles (after the wine that is!)
