Want to shop local this Christmas? Be Social Cambridge, which flies the flag for indies in and around the city, has made it easier than ever to do just that - thanks to its limited edition festive hamper launching today (October 20).

Retailing at £80, it contains a dozen treats from local hero brands: a houseplant from Small & Green with pot from Amber B Pottery; a White Christmas scented candle from Lottie Luxe; a DIY macrame cable kit from Macramazing; Christmas Brew loose-leaf tea from Kettle Leaf; Nectar Roast coffee beans from Kickstart Coffee; a festive-flavour chocolate slab from Bitesize Bakehouse; a Cosy Campfire soap bar from The Cambridge Soap Company; an organic flaxseed and lavender eye pillow from Handmade by Emily Jayne; a set of three reusable cleaning cloths from Mayme Angel; an A5 Cambridge art print by Kate Harrison; and, the finishing touch, a ‘reindeer poo’ Christmas card and gift tags by Triple Kiss Designs.

The holly on top of the pudding? For every hamper sold, a £5 donation will be made to homeless support charity Jimmy's Cambridge.

Now on pre-sale, with the first deliveries going out first week of November, the Be Independent Christmas Hamper can be ordered via besocialcambridge.com.
