Our Story

Amanda Charteris, Founder, had the idea for Gift Wrapped and Gorgeous in 2008 after reading an article in The Times newspaper about other successful women in ecommerce.  However she wanted to offer something more than just another online gift marketplace.  So she devised an affordable press service specifically for designer makers, artists and artisans in addition to a readymade boutique.

Gift Wrapped and Gorgeous has moved from the Midlands to Cornwall and now to Scotland, gathering the crème de la crème of small creative businesses on the way.

When designers are asked why they sell with Gift Wrapped and Gorgeous, they always reply that it’s the amazing support they receive from Amanda and her team.

Amanda puts people first every time and customer service is paramount to her, as is the success of her partner companies.

The website continues to offer different and unusual gift ideas, from personalised art and jewellery to more contemporary and on trend accessories for your home.

Less ordinary gifts by extraordinary people since 2009 with love from us to you!
