A brief history of all things unusual at Unusual Designer Gifts:

Founded in 2017 in Liphook, Hampshire, Unusual Designer Gifts Ltd is the digital creation of John Flowerdew, a professional photographer by trade with over forty years in commercial and social photography. Unusual Designer Gifts was actually inspired by a previous online gift business that John created back in 1999 around the time of the dot-com boom. Nearly two decades later it was time for another go at online sales. After a lot of research, steep tech learning curves and plain old hard slogging, Unusual Designer Gifts was born and developed into what it is today. It’s been a mission but was definitely worth it to see it flourishing today and we are all very proud of it!

How we run the Unusual Designer Gifts store:

We improve the store daily, refining the look and feel and adding new and exciting gift ideas that we think our customers will love. Running the online store on a day to day is fun; it doesn’t really feel like work. We enjoy researching new suppliers and finding new gift ideas, creating the product pages, processing your orders (thank you for that!), and ensuring our lovely customers are happy. Great customer service is key, and this is amply illustrated with our multitude of 5-star Google reviews, so feel free to browse some of them here >  Read our Google reviews

Running a very competitive online business is tough too; anyone who thinks it’s a breeze clearly hasn’t tried it. The time it takes to research and find new suppliers, visit costly trade shows all over the UK and beyond, and making sure the new suppliers are in sync with us, is just a part of the picture. Then there is the listing of the products and writing unique descriptions…that takes forever too. Ensuring we can be found online is a major headache and expense due to the many competing online businesses. The technology is always evolving at a fast pace too, and you have to embrace it to remain competitive. We have to ensure the website is 100% perfect, that it runs smoothly and loads quickly.

Our day to day challenges:

As a business, it’s definitely not for the faint-hearted! But despite the challenges, we love it, and so do our loyal customers who come back to us again and again. Thank you so much to them!

So, explore our range of beautiful unusual gifts, unique gifts, gifts for him, gifts for her, and home décor gift ideas, and the gifts for pets of course! We promise you’ll find something that brings inspiration, joy and much delight. We hope you love Unusual Designer Gifts as much as we do.
