Roll Up Roll Up - It's almost Christmas and I dont know about you but I just LOVE gifting awesome presents to my friends, especially if I can purchase all those gifts from small and eco friendly businesses!
Christmas can be an incredibly wasteful time with tons of extra plastic, packaging and unwanted gifts going into landfill. So please support small and eco, if you can!
We've compiled a list of our favourite Christmas presents and stocking fillers from The Alchemists Garden and other small equestrian companies that we just LOVE.
