If you’d like to spend less on Amazon & support local businesses this holiday season, you’re not alone.

Plus giving gifts like massage therapy, meditation, and other therapies, or sustainable, environmentally-friendly gifts are much kinder to the planet.

But it can be so hard to find the right gifts, and let’s face it Amazon search is SO much easier than trying to work out which of the hundreds of outcomes on google are good businesses.

So I’ve done some leg work for you.

Watch to see what 11 local businesses are offering as gifts this year, with prices starting at around £10 up to full packages / series of treatments, you’re sure to find the perfect gift for anyone on your list who wants to take better care of themselves.

All these businesses are known personally by me or recommended by our community.

If you like the look of any of our gifts, each business is listed by time in video and contact details so you can reach out to them to purchase.

Let them know you found them via this gift guide so we know this video worked!

If you know anyone who’d like this, please do share with anyone and everyone around Waltham Forest/East London.

If you’d like to learn more about Waltham Forest Feet on the Street as mentioned in the video, here’s a post about them:
