Gorgeous gifts and homeware; flying the flag for British design and manufacturing.

With the incredible and sometimes overwhelming choice the internet offers when it comes to gift shopping, it makes a welcome change to come across a website where all the products and their artisan makers have been carefully selected. This is most definitely the case at Gift Wrapped & Gorgeous, where you'll find an edited collection of unique handmade gifts, homeware and jewellery.


There are some wonderful gifts to be found at Gift Wrapped & Gorgeous, suitable for a variety of occasions from birthdays, weddings, anniversaries. Handmade jewellery, stylish home accessories to fashion accessories, contemporary and typographic artwork, gift cards and bits and bobs for babies and children all jostle for space and as you browse around the site, recently viewed items are listed at the bottom of the page.

You can search the categories in a number of ways, by price, fairtrade, personalised, free delivery or by occasion. Alternatively, if you've found a seller whose products you're particularly fond of, you can see their whole range on one page.


British design and manufacture is central to Gift Wrapped & Gorgeous and the founders, Amanda Charteris and Alison Griffiths go to great lengths to handpick creative businesses that are working on a small scale. Thier engaging marketplace enables artisan makers to reach the public in a way that they could never have done, had they been working on their own. We recommend that you head to Meet Your Maker to find out more.

Encouragingly, Gift Wrapped & Gorgeous keeps a tight grip on the number of artisan makers selling on its site, capping membership, to ensure that gift options are sufficiently varied but not too extensive, so that each product gets the same opportunity to be properly displayed.


Delivery charges vary and are listed on individual product pages, with many offering free mainland UK p&p.
