All I want for Christmas is made by the Brighton Etsy Team

It’s the #BtnEtsy fair NEXT SATURDAY – December 1st!! And I’ve been crushing on sooooo many things by the awesome Brighton makers. Here’s my list – oh and I asked each maker what their favourite Christmas song is – be warned some are a bit hardcore and some full on cheese….

Socks, gimme socks for Christmas, good quality fancy socks – especially ones with dinosaurs on and I’ll love you FOREVER!!

Favourite Christmas song for the ravers out there, it’s time to get dancing with Jaguar Skills Christmas Mix

My homie Mooshpie makes the cutest ceramics and my fave little treats are plant friends, they look so sweet snuggled in plant pots around the home.

Her work is cute, wish I could say the same for her fave Christmas song!
It’s that famous London postcode East 17 with ‘Stay Another Day‘ (I can’t complain as I bought the single!)

OMG. I have a thing for bumbags aka fanny packs 🙂 I didn’t know I had a thing for them until I met Rebekah. Holy moly I’ve never seen sequins look so good and be so very practical.

See what I mean????

The Christmas song is also in my top five, and hopefully yours too… The Pogues ‘Fairytale of New York’

I’m gonna need something big and bright and bold to add a WOW factor to my home – now this is a showstopper all year round…

Claire is also loving the Pogues New York festiveness.

Nobody ever buys me precious bling (boo hoo) so if you’re reading Santa, a pair of these earrings would look great with my Christmas jumper 😉

And more worrying is Toby’s song choice – The entire ‘Snowed in by Hanson‘ Christmas Album – Now who knew they had one?! Listen at your own risk.

Now I love pin badges, especially if they’re bright and bold and have a little glittery sparkle. This is soooo cute and cool, perfect for #HatBling.

And oh I go goosebumps listening to Angela’s choice ‘Mele Kalikimaka’ by She & Him

GLITTER!!!! I’m gonna need some glitter to throw all over myself and my loved ones – and yes it has to be eco, biodegradable loveliness…. Where am I going to get that from…?!

HeadblushEcoGlitta of course 🙂
And Sofaya has chosen that awesome 80’s Christmas classic ‘Last Christmas’ by Wham Oh George how we miss you.

It’s time to cosy down and I’m crushing on this beanbag, totally handmade in natural denim and dip dyed in super fab colours – who wouldn’t want one of these…?

I’ll send my loved ones one of these AMAZING pop-up papercut cards, it will blow their festive minds.

And Kate’s favourite Christmas song… That romantic tale ‘Christmas Wrapping” by The Waitresses “Bah Humbug…..”

Oh and Ben aka PorkChops has chosen the same festive musical ‘Christmas Wrapping’ tale as Kate, it’s a good un!
This making lists is fun 🙂 I wish I had a notebook dedicated to list writing…

Hmmmm, remember I mentioned a Christmas jumper, one to go with my Lulu earrings… How about this hand screen printed number featuring a festive dinosaur…?

A girl can never have too much bling, especially when it’s super bright and playful like the pieces made by Hello Terry. How freakin’ cool is this necklace…

And talk about tugging at the heart strings, Claires favourite Christmas song is Dean Martins ‘Let it snow‘ and here’s why… “It’s the song I walked down the aisle to when I got married, not because it was at Christmas or that We particularly like it or anything but because it was snowing on our wedding day in April!!! I changed the song at the last minute” The best story!!


Who knew there could be so much major talent in this little city, if you’re in Brighton you’ve just gotta come to the Etsy market on Saturday – even if there’s a queue, it’ll just build up your anticipation!

I’m feeling festive after all that, where’s that mulled wine? And what a great selection of tunes…

Oh and if you’re wondering, my favourite Christmas song? Yep, you’ve guessed it Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt.
