Independent Business Month: Introducing Some Of Our Indie Community.
July marks Independent Business Month!
As an indie business ourselves we know how important it is to shout about them, which is why we wanted to share with you some of the excellent fellow independent businesses that we have the pleasure of working with.
Because we work with so many fantastic businesses you’re getting not one but two posts full of brands we work with and recommend!
A tasty treat is always a welcome gift, which is why we love to include them in our boxes. Gardeners Cookies are a family-owned business spanning 5 generations based in Northampton. Not only do they taste delicious but their shortbread cookies are also suitable for vegans and vegetarians!
To see for yourself some of their tasty creations click here, although maybe not on an empty stomach.
Pampering is always high on our self-care list, especially when the products are made with natural ingredients while also helping the planet. Bee Good work with sustainable and ethical sources as well as ensuring that they support initiatives that educate and encourage people to do everything they can to help the bees not just survive but to thrive.
Bee Good has a whole range of products to make you smell gorgeous including, lip balms, skin care products and hand and body products which you can find here.
For those of you with a sweet tooth (we’re definitely guilty) Sugar Sin is a business you’re going to want to know about for gourmet, vegan and quality sweets.
Chocoholics will fall in love with their delicious flavours such as Sicilian Lemon, Salted Caramel and Pink Champagne. You can find their cocktail and fruit gummies in some of our boxes, including build you own and our ready-to-go Night In Pamper Treatbox.

The Little Coffee Bag Company
Who doesn’t love a good cup of coffee for a pick me up? Born from wanting something more than what was already out there The Little Coffee Bag Company set out to create luxurious coffee without the mess of a coffee machine, which is why they’re the perfect addition to our boxes for new Mums.

Up Circle Beauty
Positive environmental change is at the heart of Up Circle and the excellent beauty products that they create from used coffee grounds is a great byproduct. Collecting from hundreds of coffee houses across London and turning them into 100% natural skin products.
