The Best British Indie Brands to Shop for Christmas

For last-minute gift ideas, look no further.

The festive season is well and truly upon us, so last-minute gift ideas have never been more necessary. As more of us become more conscious about our fashion footprint and feel more of a desire to opt for small businesses and independents, gift-giving is something that requires more thought than ever before. As a result, we’ve pulled together some of our favorite independent British brands, for the party-goers, the sustainable shoppers and everyone in between.

From clothing to candles, our definitive list features everyone from fashion labels like AGR and Ahluwalia to jewelry brands like Daphine and Hatton Labs, plus it-girl indies like House of Sunny and Peachy Den.

Scroll down for our full list of British brands to shop this Christmas.
