This year many people have found themselves buying from small, local businesses over larger chains. This Christmas presents another opportunity to shop local and source unusual and bespoke presents for your friends and family.

If you’re still struggling to find gifts, the University’s annual Christmas Charity Craft Fair is a great place to start. You won’t be surprised to hear the Christmas Fair has gone virtual this year. Open until Sunday 20 December, you can visit the online exhibition hall website to browse the gifts on offer and read about the people making them.

It includes a huge range of handmade products where you’re bound to find something for everyone. Choose from jewellery, prints, Scottish-themed gifts and much more. The Fair is supporting the Edinburgh and Lothians Health Foundation in their work against Covid-19. You can also donate a contribution through their Just Giving webpage.
