Hi there Poppers!
Thank you so massively much for browsing my site! Gift Pop was created at a kitchen table over a cup of tea one very wet, cold and miserable morning back in January 2014 although it feels like yesterday! I was chatting with a special mate about a desire to set something up that's fun and colourful. I fine-tuned the idea during more chats that were shoe-horned into dog walks, school runs or whilst flipping fish fingers.
Before I had a family (I have a gorgeous husband, 3 children and 2 crazy dogs) I headed-up marketing at No.5 Cavendish Square (in its hey day).
I took the plunge, dusted-off my apron and put together a small collection of bright and wonderful things - vibrant 'bits' I would adore to buy for myself and for my friends. I started off selling the Moroccan sequin baskets and neon tassel necklaces - but as you can see I've widened the range ALOT since then and as from 2018 I am primarily selling my own Gift Pop Boutique range. I am just a very normal mum who had a dream and I'm working really hard to make it happen!
Everything I choose feels exciting, individual and affordable. There are lots of sites to buy gifts from, I know that, but I hope you get especially excited when you see my pop of colour and special mix of bits. We all deserve to feel special and I believe in everything I sell!
Gift Pop has come a long way since I started 3 years ago and I cannot thank all of those who have supported me enough - your energy and enthusiasm is amazing. That saying: 'When you buy from a small business an actual person does a happy dance,' REALLY is true!
I live near Newbury,in leafy West Berkshire. You can follow me on Instagram @giftpopboutique and Facebook. I don't plan to pop up at Fairs so much this year as I would like my main focus to be on the website and product development. I am lucky enough to have a bit more time now to travel and source new products - I absolutely adored my recent and most magical trip to India and hope to go again soon to develop more exciting Gift Pop branded lines. Please give me feedback and keep sending me those pictures of your Gift Pop purchases - I love seeing them!
Thanks for looking and please keep popping with me! Here's to a happy, sunny and safe 2018.
