I’m not going to pretend that i’m one of those people who does their Christmas shopping in July or anything like that. Oh no, I am definitely of the ‘leave it til December, at the last minute if possible’ group of people.
It’s just because I like browsing, and looking at pretty shops, and just thinking that the next best thing is going to be around the corner…(I may also be indecisive, but that’s another story!).
One of the shops i’ve come across recently is The Little Deer. Launched in April 2009 and set up by Jade Golding while she was in her final year at university studying a Design and Photography degree, after working in retail for 6 years Jade decided it was time to create something of her own to reflect her passion for retail.
The Little Deer “aims to celebrate individuality and to encourage young people to express their identity through what they choose to wear”. And not only do they stock lovely pretty things, but they do so to provide a platform for independent designers to showcase their unique and quirky clothing and jewellery.
I’ve picked out some of my favourite items from Jade’s shop, perfect for either a stocking filler or maybe just a little treat for yourself. Well, Christmas shopping is exhausting, isn’t it?!
I love this clutch bag by Nicola Brighton! Colourful, geometric, and the perfect size. What more could you want?!

The Little Deer’s last day for mailing is 20th December, that’s just 11 days away! Eeek, I need to get on it, and quick!!
Big, Christmassy love <3
