You'll want to go buy, buy, buy at this delightful online gift boutique.

Ella James is one of those online boutiques that make you want to go click, click, click until your shopping basket is crammed full with all manner of delightful gifts and home accessories. The founders, two sisters, have used their expert eye to put together an eclectic collection of gifts for birthdays, special occasions and weddings. Many are handmade and eco-friendly, made by designers in the UK and artisan makers and importantly, priced very reasonably.

It's no surprise to read that the company has been recognised by those in the know, with their products regularly being featured in major publications in the UK.


The site is an oasis of calm and you can shop by department (Weddings & Parties, Home Accessories and so on) or instead choose to springboard yourself into an edited selection of products drawn from across the categories. This includes Best Sellers, Mother's Day Gift Ideas - who can resist the rose wreath or silver bud cup, to Home Office with a range of wire storage baskets, peg boards and leather journals.

Need a gift for a hostess? Ella James takes the strain by putting together a page of ideas of gifts for occasions or recipients. The bank note tea towel is one of its best sellers and a fun gift. For Easter, there are little baskets for Easter egg hunts, bouncing eggs and embossed heart egg cups.


Once again, Ella James hits the spot with its careful edit of tasteful children's gifts, from traditional wooden toys to wigwams and playtents. The baby clothes are worth a mention too, with fun leggings and hat sets, cotton nighties and traditional pyjamas with planes and trains motifs or soldiers.


There is free mainland UK p&p on orders over £50 and if you sign up to Ella James' newsletter, you'll get 10% off your first order.
