Pretty Shiny Shop Gifts Galore
This shop sells plenty of pretty shiny things. It’s brimming with gorgeous gifts for kids plus prefect presents for grown-ups. I’ll talk you through some of the items available, so you know what to expect when you visit.
Pretty Colouring Pencil Necklace and Earrings by Zinc White
Stunning Jewellery: This store has an extensive jewellery offering including necklaces, earrings and bracelets. It’s a great mix of sterling silver and fashion pieces with quirky and classic designs. Prices range from £5 for sterling silver studs and go up to £50 to keep this treat cost effective. A few of my favourites included the Irish Filigree Disk Drop Earrings, Dinosaur Studs, Dragonfly Earrings and Pencil Necklace.
Dreamy Dragonfly Earrings
Curated Greeting Cards: The shop owner has a penchant for greeting cards, so you’ll find a carefully curated collection here. They have even been nominated for the Best Independent Greeting Card Retailer in London which is well deserved. The selection includes gender neutral and politically correct cards along with beautifully illustrated, humorous and witty options. Every occasion is catered for including anniversaries, birthdays plus love and friendship. Most of the cards are designed by UK makers with a focus on environmentally friendly practices.

Wonderful Scented Products: The store owner has commissioned her own range of scented candles and diffusers. Fragrances include Black Oud, Moroccan Rose and Pomegranate with Mint. The hand poured candles are made in Wiltshire using the 100% organic plant wax and cotton wicks. The scented room diffusers are available in the same scents, these also use ethically sourced ingredients in the production. I particularly liked the Oats and Honey variant. Check out the Cotswold Lavender products if you want a Slumber Spray or Gel to aid sleep. A lovely gift would be the Baressential Soaps which are made in Ireland using ethically sourced ingredients along with natural oils.

Beautiful Vegan Bags: I couldn’t believe that the women’s bags were vegan because they looked so much like leather. Treat yourself to a mini backpack, evening clutch or purse. The cosmetics bags were cute too.

Handy Homewares: Pick up a slogan mug for your friend. Drinking on the go is growing in popularity. The eco bottles, bottle flasks and heated travel mugs will keep you hydrated. Brighten up your kitchen with a colourful illustrated tea towel. The framed art work was fabulous and different from the norm.

Give Useful Gifts: You will discover so many interesting gift ideas in this shop. The Salmon Curing Kit, Bicycle Puncture Repair Kit, Multi Tool Flash Light and Telescopic Torch were a few which caught my eye. If you want to brighten up someone’s day give them a pair of quirky socks!
Useful Multi Tool Flash Light
Gorgeous Gifts for Kids: You will find a section in-store display gifts for children. The small knitted soft toys were adorable. Buy your child the Build a T-Rex which you can hang on their bedroom wall.

Greeting cards are on racks which you can swivel around for a better look. Kids gifts are grouped together for easy viewing. I loved the dark grey walls which was a bold choice, but it really does work. There is plenty of room to manoeuvre about with a push chair. Check out the retro cocktail bar which is where you pay for those gorgeous gifts. You’ll enjoy the shop, it’s pretty and it sure is shiny!
