Yay! So this is actually one New Year's Resolution we stuck to past January! I know, we are shocked too! Well we are officially OPEN! Beautifully Gifted is in bricks and mortar and we would like to say a huge thank you to every single person who came through the door on Saturday, just having people visit the shop makes the team here so happy. Even though yesterday was a very long and tiring, we had such a fabulous time getting to meet you all and seeing that you love our products as much as we do.
The goodie bags flew out the door, you guys loved the raffle and children and adults alike brightened at the free sweets! We also had some furry, four-legged customers who are always welcome at Beautifully Gifted and may find some treats they’ll love too. So after a very successful first day, we look forward to many more days to come, seeing faces new and familiar and bringing you more gifts throughout the year. The shop will be constantly changing and evolving so be sure to keep popping back, even for a catch up!
As our product of the month for February we have decided on a collection of products, rather that just one. One of our favouite brands Shruti Designs has been selected by the RSPB to collaborate on a new, fresh, fun range of seabird products, inspired by the variety of birds found around the UK. This beautiful collection includes cushions, coasters and heat tiles, soon to be followed with bags and accessories, bringing wildlife into every room of your home. Designed in neutral colours the products will match most colour schemes too.
Here at Beautifully Gifted we like to do our bit to give back and support small businesses as well as charities, and also to do our bit for the environment. That’s another reason to love this collection; not only does it raise awareness for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (an excellent charity that does so much for British wildlife) but for all items sold, 8% of the wholesale price of the product will be donated to the RSPB by the supplier. So not only are you getting a fabulously stylish piece for your home, your conscience can rest easy knowing you've done your bit as well. Then next time you see a Seagull, or Puffin you can be proud you have helped conservation efforts so they can stay in their natural habitat.
That’s it for this month but stay tuned to all our social media or pop into the shop and as always if you have any questions feel free to get in touch. Check back next month for our next blog post all about Spring (which can not come quick enough!) and maybe some help to find that perfect Mother's Day gift.
In the meantime from all us of here at Beautifully Gifted, we hope you have a great rest of February!
