West Berkshire Christmas Gift Guide - Shop Small & Local in 2022
As well as being a resource for local families, West Berkshire Family Life is all about supporting small and local businesses. Christmas is a great time to support small. Instead of heading straight to the big household names for those all important gifts, why not consider seeing where you can support your local businesses first? These businesses will appreciate your custom a lot more!
This Christmas gift guide has wonderful ideas from some local businesses, including tasty treats, educational toys, and gift vouchers.
Please support these fantastic businesses. Even if you don’t buy anything, go and check out their social media and give them some love; just a like, a comment or a share can make a big difference!
