The Local Salisbury Business Gift Guide


The Local Salisbury Business Gift Guide

As part of my gift guide series this year, I wanted to dedicate one to the small independent businesses dotted around Salisbury... I moved here at the beginning of the year and even now I'm still discovering small local businesses that I hadn't heard of up until now. With Christmas mode in full swing in the city, I wanted to share some independents to check out when Christmas shopping...

The Local Salisbury Business Gift Guide 

Etica Boutique 

Located in St Thomas Square, Etica Boutique sell a range of clothing, accessories and homeware. Not only are all of the pieces beautiful and really well curated but the shop as a whole has a very sustainable focus. I mean, Etica itself means 'ethical' in Italian. It's worth noting that Etica Boutique is closed on a Sunday so do plan ahead! 

Captive Worlds 

Captive Worlds was one of the businesses featured in this year's festive windows created by Fran, Amy and Dean from Interior Design Masters. They're a specialist aquariaum and terrarium store. Not only do they have all of things you could ever need to set up your own aquarium or terrarium, but they also sell some plants and host their own workshops too. Captive Worlds is a great place to head for the green-fingered people in your life. (And if you're not sure what to get, they sell gift cards too!)

Sister's Wardrobe 

A newer addition to Salisbury, Sister's Wardrobe is a preloved clothing shop that only sell items that are in good condition. The items are all higher ticket pieces but at a far better price than you'd pay for them new, including those still with tags! In case you weren't aware, you can actually sell your pieces in the store and receive 50% of the profit. From All Saints to Lucy & Yak, they stock a wide range of different brands, but by the very nature of the shop, all pieces are one off and the stock is always changing. It's worth noting they are closed on a Sunday too.

Casa Fina 

If you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen me mention Casa Fina a few times now. They're a homeware shop not far from the cathedral and sell new, vintage and antique pieces. They were actually featured on series three of BBC's Interior Design Masters and the shop is fab to wander around. I've bought a few of our baubles from there this year and they're stunning. Casa Fina is a great place to have a look around for the home decor lover in your life. Candles, mugs, trinkets, they've got it all!

Blueberry Den 

Looking to make more sustainable purchases this year? Look no further than Blueberry Den. They're located on Winchester Street and are a plastic free shop that sell sustainable, local and ethical products. From plastic free beauty products (such as soaps and bath salts) to kitchen bits (like coconut wood cutlery) there's something for every eco-concious relative or friend. 

Mhoho and Co 

Currently available to buy on Etsy, Mhoho and Co make beautiful, personalised jewellery in both silver and gold. The pieces are all handmade here in Salisbury and cost between £20 and £38 each. From rings to pendants, all of the jewellery can either be personalised with a name, date, initial, or even a pet's paw print. I was kindly sent a personalised ring by Jenny at Mhoho and Co and I wear it every single day. The quality is brilliant and I always get comments on it! 

And there we have it, a short (and by no means exhaustive) list of local Salisbury businesses to support when shopping this Christmas. From terrariums to personalised jewellery to plastic-free beauty products, there's something for everyone in Salisbury.
