Where do you go to get the best alternative Christmas presents and stocking fillers? We’re not talking online here … we want suggestions for great independent high streets that support local makers, cool markets selling handcrafted goods, or perhaps there’s a winter weekend of artists’ open studios near you where you can hunt down unusual artisan gifts. We’re after suggestions in the UK (and good value not high-end shops!) – simply share your suggestion and why you love it and you might even bag a trip yourself.
If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
Keep your tip to about 100 words
The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on 22 November at 9am GMT
