The Little Gift Hive, is an online store run by mother and daughter team, (Kerry and Katie) and it’s full of lovely gifts.
The handmade gift section features some of their own handmade gifts which are quite lovely.
I Sell Crafts.
I thought it would be a nice idea to join up with their new venture and see if in someway i could help them get some sales but the proof is in the pudding so i ran a little test purchase to gauge how efficient their venture is.
Gifts for a loved one.
My immediate thought was a Christmas gift for Mum, you know Mum’s have everything and are so hard to buy for, so I set about looking through the store.
My Mum is a walking fashion statement! Always immaculately dressed and wears incredible jewellery but she does like a little bit of bling, I found some in the way of this Diamante Heart Keyring!
Mum is obviously not my valentine! So i added my own little message at the shopping cart (you can have up to 15 characters per line over 3 lines. 45 characters in total) and sent off my order.
Within a couple of hours, I got an email asking if i was happy with my intended inscription and had the opportunity to change it. Kerry pointed out a capitalization of a letter that in hindsight should not have been, so I requested that it be changed. Another quick email arrived for me to confirm the new message and the order was placed.
Another email arrived informing me it was being inscribed and would be dispatch as soon as possible and i didn’t wait long for a confirmation of dispatch.
The item arrived 3 days later.
The keyring as you can see from the image is silver in colour and is quite weighty and solid in make, the inscription is laser etched and for what I paid, excellent value for money. A presentation box would have been nice but again for £10 what do you expect.
A lot of hard work has gone into setting up The little gift hive and I am pleased to say the whole gift buying experience was a well thought out journey. Credit to the girls, i wish them the very best of luck into the future.
Why not pop over to the store and help this fledgling small gift business?
