Shop the rainbow this Colour Friday!

Updated: Nov 25, 2022

To celebrate #ColourFriday and Holly Tucker's Shop Independent campaign today we've put together a rainbow range of gifts and ideas for you! You'll find something for every colour of the rainbow all created and made by fabulous independent businesses in the UK - we hope you like it.


Alex Light is a body confidence influencer who is committed to helping women across the world feel better in their own skin. These collections are an extension of her online work, and she has created each piece with the hope it will help women to feel happy and confident exactly as they are.

This raspberry colour is perfect for Christmas holiday lounging and comes in a range of inclusive sizes and fits.

Hurleyburley is a luxury jewellery and accessories company specialising in high quality products, beautifully personalised to create treasured bespoke gifts. Hurleyburley was started in 2009 by Sue Buckland following the start of school for her youngest children. A trained silversmith, she set out to create wearable, forever pieces inscribed with love and wisdom.

We could get a few of these bookmarks for a few bookworms we know, and they come in more than just red!



Cheesegeek was set up when founder Edward Hancock decided to leave the Fund Management world for the far less corporate, but far more exciting and stinky, world of cheese. He’s beyond geeky about cheese.

We're trying very hard not to buy every single one of these cheese box creations - they are amazing! And they do a cheese advent calendar!

Carrie Elizabeth is a British Jewellery brand designed and based in London, England. Launched in October 2015, it was founded by Carrie Elizabeth Dennahy who spent her last 10 years working as a Fashion & Jewellery Buyer for one of the UK’s leading retailers. Targeting the mid market, the range bridges the gap between ‘fashion’ and ‘fine’ jewellery.

Not just yellow, but yellow gold! Carrie Elizabeth's range starts at the affordable vermeil versions to full 18k solid gold luxury versions. Our favourite is this heart ring.



A self-confessed stationery addict, Martha’s love of paper goods was evident from an early age. In 2013, Martha left her corporate role with the dream of doing something more purposeful and followed her passion to create Martha Brook. The brand name combines Martha’s name with where the brand originated, her first home in Brook Green, London.

There's an awful lot of beautiful pinks in Martha Brooks offerings (a woman after our own hearts!) - just look at these personalised notebooks for a start!

Fable Heart is luxury children's dress up company, dedicated to producing high artisan level clothing and accessories for your little one.

We love that this crown will last and last in the dressing up drawer and love the beautiful finish and sentiment of the product.

We couldn't do a pink list and not include Pink Peppercorn, our very own beautiful candle fragrance. This fresh smelling candle, from my limited edition hand made collection, is the perfect gift for warm and cosy Christmas nights.



Gardener Ned Trier germinated his idea nearly 30 years ago when he found himself in yet another London traffic jam en route to a client’s garden. Keen to avoid the traffic and to keep busier in the quieter months he devised a plan to deliver a range of growing gifts for the same price as a decent bunch of flowers.

There are so many glorious offerings on this site for all levels of gardening (we get a lot of birthday and anniversary gifts from here). This Christmas Cook's Box is the perfect choice for this time of year though!

As lovers of the great outdoors and big believers in the healing power of nature, Clarity Blend are on a mission to help you live happier and more balanced lives by harnessing the transformative properties of plants in your self-care routines.

This muscle recovery set is a great idea for those gym lovers that need a bit of recovery time over the festive period.



After many years serving cocktails to thousands of guests, the expert mixologists from Coxtails decided to make their cocktails available to everyone. That’s when Hunter & Grey was born.

The team created the perfect blend of premium spirits and fresh ingredients to make the best cocktails around. They wanted to disrupt the market of the overly sweet cocktails you find in the shops (yuck!). Why can't you have bar quality cocktails at home?

Offering small bottles, large bottles, and gift sets - the Porn Star Martini is on our list for Christmas!

Catherine started her business in November 2016 when she needed to earn some money for Christmas. She's a mum of 4 and has always loved doing crafts and making items.

Her wreaths are amazing, this very unique take on seasonal chillis and oranges must smell amazing!



Grey Star Interiors journey started naturally with a passion for homeware. Their aim is to source and hand pick new and exciting products to add to their ever growing collection of gifts and homewares. From home decor to kitchen furniture they have something for every home and style.

These purple dahlia napkins would make a lovely gift or a unique addition to your Christmas table.

Flowers At The Mill came about mostly during the Covid-19 pandemic. Previously, they only offered weddings and events but now they can offer flowers and beautiful gifts to all your loved ones. With gorgeous plants and hand dried flowers, they now ship products all over the UK.

The dried pampas! The purple! The wallpaper! This photo is everything!



Of Life and Lemon's aim is to solve your gifting dilemmas with a range of products featuring clever word play, guaranteed to make you laugh or cry. Sometimes both!

We love a blue plaque sign here at Christine Gardner and so thought these keyrings were a delight! There are a lot of lovely things on this site!

Hotdog Petwear is a small, independent UK based dog jumper brand that is growing year on year. Based in Hertfordshire, their team is made of experienced Knitwear specialists that ensure their products are of the highest quality, machine washable and fun!

Yep couldn't resist a dog in a jumper, they need Christmas gifts too!

And when you've shopped from all these lovely people, don't forget to get your wrap from an independent too! This blue star wrap is our biggest seller year on year, and looks so smart under the tree.

Happy Colour Friday everyone! Spread some joy and happiness by shopping the rainbow, and independent, this Christmas!
