While we are all stuck in Christmas shopping, it can be too easy to trust places like Amazon for quick and easy delivery and convenience.

To combat this and maintain the effort to support local businesses that have had to shut down for several months, Independent Derry has released its Guide to Christmas Shopping.

Divided into different sections: “Gifts, Art, Prints”, “Scents, Fondants, Soaps”, “Clothing” and “Food & Drink”, it’s easy to navigate to see which local Derry business can offer exactly what you’re looking for. Christmas.

The guide includes many online businesses as well as physical stores that can be explored in the downtown area.

Offers such as coupons, click and collect and delivery options are clearly listed under each business.
