Did you miss the best shopping event of the year? Or regrettably didn’t buy that cute candle or sumptuous slippers you saw. Well this is your complete guide to shopping the Indie Christmas event. Below is a full list of suppliers, how to buy from them and some great gift ideas I saw at each stand.
1. Harewood Food & Drink Project
Harewood Food & Drink Project, headed up by Eddy, sold their seasonal beers and craft gin – Greystone. Using mulberries and elderberries from the historic Harewood estate, the gin is a perfect winter warmer this Christmas.

Online indie, It’s The Thought, run by Georgie, offer’s gorgeous gift boxes which can be personalised to the person receiving the gift and to suit any budget. I especial like the magic in a gift box with a Santa bell and reindeer food.

I love Everyman. Yes, they are not an indie but a big support of Harrogate Tribe: An Indie Christmas. The food, the comfort and the vibes are spot on for a night at the cinema. They have some incredible membership for locals to take advantage of, starting off with ‘Like Us?’ membership, which includes 7 tickets plus bring a guest free on Mondays for just £95.00.
The lovely Bettys donated a gorgeous hamper for our raffle and a pretty Christmas bauble filled with chocolates for our goody bag. The hamper looked so delicious, I couldn’t not including it in my Christmas gift guide.
20. Harrogate Spring Water
Another big supporter of Harrogate Tribe: An Indie Christmas was local company Harrogate Spring Water. So it only felt right I gave them a shout out on here too. I hope you’re all enjoying the great reusable bags they gave us? – made from old plastic bottles!
And there you have it, a complete gift guide to a very Harrogate giftmas! I hope you enjoyed it and, the best thing is many of these items are available online so no excuse to not support a Harrogate Independent this Christmas.
