Welcome to The Little Gift Hive and thank you for stopping by! Over the past few weeks, we have been busy bees making sure everything is ready for the big day we go live! Our hive has a host of products, so whether you are looking for luxury presents, a treat for yourself, something to spruce up your home or the perfect gift - we have a little something for everyone.
There is no queen bee here - this shop is manned (or womanned) by mother-daughter duo, Kerry and Katie! Our little shop is close to our heart - we are a family-run business after all! Everything we do here is personal and meaningful to us, from Kerry’s hand-crocheted gifts, clothing and bespoke jewellery, to Katie’s love of the environment and her wonderful upcoming Wiccan themed gifts such as handmade Books of Shadows. The shop is full of gifts and products that we love and we are sure you will too!
Getting to our long-awaited opening day hasn’t been easy, for the last 5 years I (Kerry) have been battling myalgic encephalomyelitis, commonly known as chronic fatigue syndrome or CFS. This debilitating, lifelong illness has been challenging for me on a daily basis and has pushed me to try new things in an attempt to stay sane and regain some independence.
I left my job in 2015 to achieve what many seem to think impossible - a healthy work/life balance. Sadly, my illness surfaced soon after this. However, as a result, this project was brought to life with the help and support of my business partner and loving daughter Katie.
I have had a passion for crafts for as long as I can remember. Over the past few years, partially as a result of my circumstances, I have been crocheting gifts and clothing as well as creating unique jewellery and other bits and bobs. All of these are on my Etsy store but you’ll see them on here as well in due time!
The Little Gift Hive was created to provide a bespoke shopping portal for you to find luxuries for your home, treats for yourself and gifts for friends and loved ones, and we hope you enjoy your time with us!
