The idea of giving gifts, instead of flowers, came from Jan, founder of Gifts Instead of Flowers, when she was gifted bunches of beautiful flowers during an illness – a lovely gesture that was greatly appreciated. But as days went by, the flowers fade and die and she was left with just stems and a few note cards to remind her of the kind thoughts from the person who gave the flowers. So, the idea arose that it would be lovely to give a small gift that could leave a lasting memento for all kinds of occasions

As well as supporting businesses in the art industry, Gifts Instead of Flowers also supports ‘William’s Fund’, a charity set up by the Dodd family after tragically losing their son to childhood cancer at just four years old. Mother, Johanna Dodd, has raised over £1,000,000 so far and has recently pledged to raise a further £1,000,000.

Supporting Independent Artists

Gifts Instead of Flowers is such a great concept! I love that the idea is kind to the artists and small businesses who are part of it. There are so many great, new products to give as gifts. Very exciting!
