Ordered from UK for my son. Choice of gifts was brilliant.
Communication was excellent. My son was away so asked for delivery to be delayed. Valerie arranged for that and messaged me when delivery was made. - 29/06/2022

I got a Health pack for my niece for when she came home after a mastectomy. Her response was "I have just received a lovely and very welcome gift box in the post. Thank you.I was feeling a bit flat but this has really picked me up and I love the fact the products are all local and artisan". I will definitely get them again! - 29/06/2022

Great to deal with, I ordered two deliveries. One online and the other they took my special order over the phone. Did take a tiny bit long for the local delivery (online) to take place (ordered on Monday and delivered on Wednesday I think); I would have expected it to be delivered next day. But great range of products and I will definitely be using them again! Thanks - 27/06/2022
