Our favourite mini gift ideas
- Bottled Matches and Match Boxes
Wonderfully, we have an entire collection of matches. Indeed, often not the first thing that comes to mind when wishing to give a gift, however it is a present that is undoubtedly useful and our selection make them stylish and fun. Our variety is made up of multiple sizes, shapes and prices suitable for whomever you plan on giving it to.
In my experience, the more over-the-top, silly, or out-there size and shape of this particular gift, the greater the reaction and the appreciation by the recipient… On this note, best to check out the Tiger Box of Matches pictured below!
I truly believe that if in doubt, a keyring is a great failsafe gift for anyone. Whether your best friend, brother, sister, mother, or even work colleague, a keyring is another useful gift and one that will last. We have multiple keyrings available – in various shapes, sizes and colours. Our Alphabet and Tassel key rings double as an asset when finding your keys or a chic accessory for your bag.
While our other key rings may be smaller, they are equally as cute and the bright colours will help you find them in the depths of any bag. Our personalisation service makes this mini gift small in size but with great potential for added thoughtfulness to make the gift extra touching. See the photo below for inspiration!
- Luggage Tag and Phone Bank
Both a luggage tag and / or a phone bank are novel but great gifts in their own right. However, the reason I group them together is due to the commonalities that make them great gifts. Each of these gifts are somewhat usual however undeniably useful – in particular, when travelling around. Hence, these are especially good presents to give to a friend or loved one planning a trip. Take a look at our guide on how to write a travel diary.
The luggage tag is easily fastened to any bag and as well as its primary purpose of holding your contact details in case of lost luggage, the bright array of colours they come in will help with the often ever-difficult task of working out which bag is yours at the airport luggage reclaim. Similarly, a brightly coloured phone bank will help you find your charging bank in your bag and keep your important wires nice and accessible in one place.

- Lavender Bags
Since their launch our gorgeous arrange of dreamily scented Lavender Bags have been a popular and eye-catching product. The combination of the sweet embroidery of either Mummy, Home, Granny or Love, and each of their concurrent patterns of bunnies and bumbles bees, with their floral freshness, has proved to be constant source of appreciation and attraction. This mini gift is an adorable way to show your love for someone on any occasion.
- Mini album
Despite being ‘mini’ in name, this is one of our mini gifts that packs the ultimate punch and really has the power to pull at the heart strings. Although the gift of an empty album is also a wonderful thing (photo albuming is fantastic hobby to get into at any age and should be encouraged – yes, we are biased), should you choose to buy and fill the album with your most precious memories, it is a gift that will be cherished forever by more than just the receiver. Both our mini landscape albums and mini square albums fit standard 6x4 photos, yet their small size makes filling them with photos a less daunting task.
Of course, giving somebody an album filled with your greatest memories that you’ve gone through the effort of collating is an amazingly personal thing in itself, our engraving service means that you can add the cherry on top with a special name, place or message on the front.
- Mini Journal
Sometimes there is a danger with giving mini gifts whereby it is tempting to give something for the sake of giving it rather than something of any want or use. A wonderfully simple option when short of time but insistent on giving a gift, is a journal. A journal or notepad is an exceptionally useful gift wherever you are – and a mini one is not only a cute gesture, but can be easily brought anywhere. Learn more about how journaling can improve your mental health.
Our latest range of mini journals are an exceptional gift whatever the occasion. They come in a variety of colours, each with a small logo and message on them suited to whomever you are gifting including, ‘Rooting for you’, ‘On top of the World’, ‘Clever Clogs’ and ‘Good Luck’. Furthermore, as with most of our products, they can be personalised with name, place or message to make it extra special.
- Candles and Diffusers
A candle and/or diffuser is a lovely item although not totally essential to have in a home – some people may say. For this reason, it is yet another fabulous example of one of our mini gifts particularly because people don’t often indulge in buying one for themselves.
Both our ranges of Diffusers and Candles come in three different scents, Patchouli and Llang Llang, Geranium and Orange Blossom, and Lime and Black Pepper. Of course, each can also be personalised with a leather letter. Their heavenly aroma, and great added decoration to a room, is something the recipient of this item can enjoy over and over.
To finish the article with a slightly cheesy (and very bad) pun referring to one of our own fantastic gift suggestions, we really do have a ”perfect match” for everyone whatever the mini gift you are looking for and whomever you plan to give it to.
