Ham & Pickle was started with a vision of a thoughtful gift sending service with a personal touch. We felt there was something missing from the usual large-scale, mass produced options;
Some gifts come without gift wrapping. Sometimes the sender makes the effort to request a gift bag and it is sent beside the gift in a boring box.Sometimes the card feels like it has been reeled off in the thousands. Sometimes you're not in to receive a gift which means a frustrating trip to the post office.
Does all this sound familiar?
From the beginning, we knew we didn't want to add to the masses. Ham & Pickle aims to be a platform to sell thoughtful, sustainable and UK made products which will showcase and support the incredibly talented makers, designers and brands that we have right here in the UK.
So, the time was taken to find the right products from the right people that shared our ethos. We are really proud of what we have achieved so far and excited about the potential for the future.
If you have any questions or feedback then please get in touch with us, we'd love to hear from you!
Love, the Ham & Pickle team x
We source wonderful, ethical products made by UK-based designers and makers - some are even local to us in Stratford-upon-Avon. Ham & Pickle then curate a selection of these products to create something even more special, neatly laid into a box that fits through a letterbox. And of course, you have the freedom to create your own box too on the 'Build Your Own' section of the shop page.You can also add other personal touches, because sending a gift should be as heart warming as receiving it.
Every aspect of Ham & Pickle has been developed with an ethical and eco friendly ethos. Naturally all the packaging is either recyclable, biodegradable or reusable. And our boxes fit a standard letterbox, meaning no extra miles and time wasted chasing an undelivered package. To reduce the distance our products have travelled, and to support our home grown talent in the UK, they all have been made in Britain, with passion and thoughtfulness, by independent makers and designers that care for our environment.
Personalise your gift, so you choose...
- The greeting card and message
- The colour of the tissue paper
- Designs, colours, scents of the products in the gift box
- If you want to add an organic cotton gift bag
- A message, such as 'Happy Birthday', on the box with 'do not open until' instructions
Each box is fully customisable, so it really is a gift sent with love.
