We’re past the buying window for UK based Mothering Sunday, but it’s always a good time to buy someone a handmade present, no?

I’ve recently got into TikTok (I know, I know) and have found a wonderful supportive community of small businesses and artists. So I’m compiling this gift guide with people I’ve met through the app, and my favourites of their products. They’re mainly UK based, I’ll try to highlight where they aren’t, have some fun browsing through.
First of all, how about a fantastic Dolly Parton print from StephHoweStudio? Let’s face it, Dolly is an icon, and who better to offer life advice in your kitchen along with an uplifting song or two?
Terrachuu Art are based in Eastbourne, UK, and have a range of Kawaii Horror Illustrations and crafts. Most of them look more on the cute side than the horror side to me though, like this A5 Luna print.
Dream of Luna is making ethereal art for ethereal people, and I’m particularly in love with this custom acrylic painting – the example illustration is of a galaxy and it’s just gorgeous.
Isobel’s Creatives have a range of knitted and sewn gifts, with the latest range including tie dye wheat bags. (Why does it always take me several attempts to type tie dye?)
See Paul doodles has a range of doodle based stickers, my favourite being this cup of something reading room.
Brushed Earth Home has a range of hand painted boho home decor, which look wonderfully calm and friendly to me. Definitely worth checking out for plant pots that are a bit different to those from your local DIY superstore.
If you’re looking for individual cards or gifts, Vanessa at Stitched by V will do you cross stitch cards/ bookmarks etc. Really unique and very good value.
Geek Mind Creations has some somewhat less cutesy stickers in their range, but I also really love the watercolour style, like this rather fabulous bee.
I’m in love (see what I did there) with this heart shaped tufted wall hanging from Sarah at Sarah Hack Art. Her portraiture prints and cards are fabulous too.
And finally, Vexican art launched today, and what could be better than a crochet mushroom gift box? Come on, you know you have that one friend that would love it!
