Altr Small Business Gift Guide

Is it just me, or is gift buying TOUGH this year! Especially with everyone locked down at the moment. It's also more important than ever to shop small and shop local, with so many small businesses facing restrictions due to COVID. Consequently we've put together a short gift guide shouting out some of our favourite fellow small businesses. Check it out below!



First up, Shandy Shack, a UK based drinks company who have recently gotten into Sainsburys! A bunch of proud shandy drinkers who believe that moderation shouldn’t be a choice between all or nothing. Brewing original craft beer shandies with more taste but less booze to let you cut loose while cutting down. So perfect for the designated driver! We recommend gifting the variety bundle to a friend (or yourself!)




Next up we have Goodordering, an awesome Hackney based accessories brand. The brand name ‘Goodordering’ comes from the joy and satisfaction of ordering well at a restaurant. “Our family often went out for meals together and after a very satisfying meal, we would all call out ‘Good ordering!’ to mum. This brand incorporates all the values of family get-togethers and those captured moments of happiness. They specialise in bags and backpacks for on-the-go, a great gift for the athletic person in your life! 



Salt Grooming are THE new hair styling brand, and positive reviews are already flying in! Hybrid Hair is an advanced hybrid styling compound that offers all the benefits of wax and clay. Paraben-free and using organic, natural ingredients, it thickens hair, smooths fly-away strands, and absorbs excess oil and grease, thanks to its unique blend of actives, including unrefined Atlantic sea salt, aloe vera, and vitamin E. Ideally suited to longer hairstyles but suitable for all hair types, it promises all-day hold with a natural finish. A great stocking filler this Christmas at £17.99.
