You can’t buy happiness, but you can shop local, and that’s kind of the same thing!
Your local independents are what makes Harborne a real destination – you simply can’t beat the personal touch that comes with shopping locally. Independent businesses offer an unrivalled personalised shopping experience that’s reflected in the products and services on offer. They are the heart, soul and character of our community, and when you shop local at locally owned businesses, our local economy benefits.
Give your loved ones a gift that’s truly unique this Christmas, and give the gift of your support to Harborne businesses this festive season. #GiveTwice.
Check out our Harborne #GiveTwice Christmas Gift Guide below, featuring some of the very best spotlight products from your High Street!

Spotlight product – Harborne Kitchen Fig Leaf Gin Batch #1 – £44
A gin made in collaboration with the fantastic Rachel from Staffordshire distillery.
Jamie often uses fig leaves in his recipes so transferred the idea to a gin. Rachel makes her gin with vapour distillation, often seen as a premium way to distil. With this in mind, Rachel and Jamie decided on a gin that, although is clearly a London dry juniper forward drink, has subtle creaminess from the hint of coconut and green walnut from the fig leaves. This is a small batch premium distilled – only 120 bottles are available.
