Shopping Locally This Christmas
As I live in Slovenia, I will introduce to you some Slovenian brands that are close to my region. Therefore, check their websites if they ship international, if you see something really interesting;).
Firstly, as I mentioned in my previous post, a candle making brand. Their candles are so beautiful and what is really exciting – they are vegan. I am not a 100 % vegan, but I really like to support vegan community. Own Candles has a great choice of candles.
Next one I would like to mention is a planner of the year. Ustvarjam sanjsko leto is a planner that I buy every year in December. Moreover, it is also a motivational and life goals diary.
One another small local business that I recommend is Glina.si. Their beauty products are made from clay in Slovenia and are all natural. They have soaps, shampoos and creams appropriate for a Christmas gift.
Big Slovenian company Afrodita Cosmetics offers a big selection of all sorts of cosmetics. My favourites are from 100 % SPA which are also vegan products and all natural. Sun Care line is one another that I like and it is affordable and vegan as well.
What about jewellery;)
In Slovenian we have a lot of unique jewellery makers, I will name two of them. So, the first one is MyUnikat by Tjaša Vodeb. She is a young entrepreneur who loves to make jewellery. What I like about her, is that she has a really nice range of everything and she is not afraid to be unique. Second one is a lady from Slovenian mountains The Mountain Pearls.
If you are a foodie here is a great vegan chocolate alternative for unique food shopping. Lizin vrt has raw cakes and vegan chocolates in the offer. Are you a fan of different oils? Here are a few choices. For a pumpkin seed oil Kocbek has the best. One of the producers of Mediterranean olive oil from Slovenia is Nona Tonca. But if you want a bit more products to choose from, here is a Malinca * website. Coconut oil*, energy mix*, body care products*.
