Hi guys, Jessie of Jessie Bakes here giving you guys a Christmas gift guide. I start feeling festive as soon as the leaves start to change colour so by the time December actually arrives I'm normally beside myself. I've loved adopting lovely traditions with my young family and pride myself on being able to put together a fabulous Christmas hamper or two!
My Christmas gifts are normally a mixture of home-made items, delicious things to eat and for my remaining gifts I love to 'shop small', rooting out really amazing small brands and businesses. So I hope my Christmas gift run down serves a spot of inspiration for you all in the run up to Christmas!
Bake your own gifts!
I'm completely sorted for decorative ideas this year with my stash of Cake Angels supplies.

Of course, if you don't fancy baking, you can always commission a great baker. A personal favourite of mine is Luvelia Bakes. Pop over to this fabulous baker's website for a look at the most wonderful personalised and crucially post-able biscuits and bakes! Check her out at www.luvelia.com
Other small brands and businesses that I've either already purchased from or continue to swoon over include Elanor Bowmer, Tilly & Sage and The Happy Newspaper. When you shop small someone like me does a little happy dance!
Hello, I'm Jessie bakes and I LOVE creating colourful, nutritious family friendly recipes. As a busy Mum; Baking is something I do to relax and I love sharing my recipes and creations via my Instagram and blog. My spare time is spent running after a lively toddler, baking together and making him healthy fun meals also. He’s a big fan of Sprinkles and often try’s to get into Mum’s baking cupboard! As a long-time Cake Angles admirer and customer, I am so pleased to be an Archangel - I cannot get enough of all the wonderful sprinkles and decorations Cake Angels has to offer!
Calling all BAE-kers, it's time to join the Archangel revolution.
