This Holiday season, shop responsibly by supporting small merchants to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list.
Is it weird that I actually enjoy shopping for Holiday gifts? I love the thrill of planning and hunting for thoughtful and unique gifts. A good gift doesn’t have to be the latest gadget or super expensive, but rather reflect the receiver’s tastes and interests.
Personally, I would be super thrilled if someone took the time to find me a unique foodie gift. So when I came across this lovely small business called Bellocq, I decided to treat myself! Bellocq is a charming tea atelier, which sells the loveliest collection of teas and tea accessories sourced from global producers. Plus, they come packaged in cheery yellow paper with a lovely note. How cute!
I loved the fact that I was supporting a small business and the economy while discovering unique gift options for other tea lovers on my list. I was also sold on the fact that I didn’t need to leave the warm comfort of my home or brave the throng of Holiday shoppers, and pay securely without needing my wallet and credit card via PayPal.
What’s more? PayPal understands that we have our moments and not every online purchase may be a good fit for us. So PayPal offers return shipping refunds called Return Shipping On Us, up to $30 in return shipping costs per order and 12 orders per calendar year.
Well, I loved my Holiday tea gifts from Bellocq, so I’m keeping them all. I got a beautiful Japanese teapot for one, a charming silver-plated tea strainer, and a box of their signature tea blends.
The tea collection that I chose had Bellocq Breakfast, Majorelle Mint, The White Wolf, The Queen’s Guard, and Etoile de l’Inde. My favorite has to be The Queen’s Guard, inspired by classic, dew-studded English gardens. It is a perfect afternoon tea, with light floral notes of rose and lavender.
Once I began checking out the Bellocq website, I literally couldn’t stop, they’re all so pretty! And checkout was super easy with PayPal. Now, if you don’t know what to get someone on your list or simply ran out of time, just Send a PayPal digital gift card and schedule the date it will be delivered. Aa an added bonus, you will not be charged until the day the gift is sent!
Do check this small business out if you need Holiday gifts for food lovers. And don’t forget that PayPal offers you secure payment options.
