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 1 husband, 3 children and 3 crazy dogs ) I worked at George on Mount Street London ( part of the then Mark Birley "Annabels" empire ) and then went on to head 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 Moroccan sequin baskets - but as you can see I've widened the range massively since then and mostly sell my own Gift Pop brand now, travelling to India as and when I can.

I am 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 9 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. We used to live in a cosy pretty pink thatched cottage - but now live in a big industrial modern barn!! If you follow me on Instagram @giftpopboutique you can see behind my stock room door and my crazy home too. I find it hard to sit still so there is always something going on! I am 6 ft 1, 49 years old and I looooovveeee to party! I'm a terrible sleeper yet love to get up early. I love a good Netflix cheesy series, adore tea and vodka i equal measures ( not together ) I am insanely superstitious and I have a mole on the palm of my hand! I'm mad about  bright colourful interiors/ clothes and above all I'm passionate about supporting small businesses. 

Stay tuned this year for lots more fun and colour. Also the expansion of my new BOYS range @albieandwalt with a fresh website coming soon www.albieandwalt.com

Keep Popping!
