Bristol Pounds aren’t just for Christmas!

It’s that time again; morning frosts, short days and the early signs of Christmas shopping mania.

There’s not much we can do about the morning frost (except to recommend gloves) and early sunsets but we can help to neutralise the pain of Christmas shopping. How about making the positivity of Christmas last by buying all of your Christmas presents with Bristol Pounds (£Bs)?

£Bs will keep circulating around the local economy for the rest of the year; they will nurture and support Bristol’s independents and our precious Credit Union. By spending £Bs you will bring prosperity to Bristol long after the celebrations end. Doesn’t that sound super?!

We’ve made it really easy for you – if you don’t have an account, you can sign up here – click on the buttons below for our special £B Christmas Shopping Directories:

If that is not enough to persuade you, here are a few reasons why Christmas shopping in local independent businesses is great:

  • Unique presents – beautifully crafted gifts that can be exclusive to smaller businesses.
  • Delicious flavours – fresh produce supplied by local farmers and growers will make your Christmas dinner one to remember.
  • Great offers – don’t believe the myth that going local is more expensive; many local stores have fantastic deals on gifts and food. Just pop in and ask!
  • Festive spirit – buy from a person, not a machine. Christmas is a time for building relationships and there’s no better way to connect with your local independents than shopping with them.
  • Challenge yourself – haven’t done your Christmas shopping yet? How about you add a bit of fun to it and see how much of your shopping you can do in Bristol Pounds!
