The best things come in small packages

Online gift service just one of the entrepreneurs taking part in Small Business Saturday 2016

Richmond-based business owner, Steph Douglas (pictured), has been named as one of 15 entrepreneurs nationwide who are now ‘Small Business Saturday’ champions.

Steph, who owns online gift service Don’t Buy Her Flowers, founded her business to offer thoughtful present packages for new mums. The company has since grown to include gifts suitable for any occasion where TLC is required.

Small Business Saturday is now in its fourth year, and on 3 December the UK’s 5.4 million small business will be placed in the national spotlight.

Britain’s most successful small business campaign, in 2015 an estimated £623 million was spent on the day supporting those taking part – up £119 million on the previous year.

Between them the UK’s small businesses provide 60 per cent of private sector jobs and nearly 50 per cent of private sector turnover.

‘Small Business Saturday plays a valuable role in reminding consumers and fellow business owners what small businesses can offer in terms of range of products and services and levels of customer service,’ explains Steph. 

‘Most people in this country either own a small business, work for a small business or know somebody who does so we are delighted to have been asked to champion Small Business Saturday 2016 and to do what we can to get people thinking small.’
