IT'S A time of year for giving gifts - but instead of something mass-made and plastic, local artisans can provide you with a gift made with love.

The popular Made with Love Christmas market is on tomorrow at C.ex Coffs.

With more than 110 stallholders, the market has been booked out since August, and anticipation is growing.

"People are itching to buy gorgeous handmade and locally made goods this Christmas," market organiser Alison Paul said.

"The Made with Love markets are not only a unique experience for local people to purchase beautiful handmade items for their family but also to see the amazing amount of talent we have here on the north coast."

For most stallholders, the market is the only place they sell wares, making it a great place to source truly original items.

As a special treat, parents will get an opportunity for child-free shopping with C.ex Coffs opening the Little Digger's Club from 9am.
