Unless you’re one of those enviable people who have already done their Christmas shopping and wrapped it by Halloween the sudden realisation that we’re only a few weeks away from Christmas can send some of us into a flat spin. This hasn’t been helped this year by the national lockdown throughout November which has lead many of us to leave Christmas shopping to the last minute. Thankfully though we live in an area with many local independent businesses all of who are more than happy to help you find the perfect gift this Christmas.

2020 has been a tough year for independent businesses and it’s more important than ever that we shop local and support the local economy wherever we can. When you shop local not only will you be getting better service and a more unique gift but it will most likely be a lot less stressful and more enjoyable.

Here are a few suggestions of fabulous local businesses offering special gift ideas in the South Hams with links to their listing in our Directory where you will find more information and their full contact details:
