Living in rural Sussex with my husband, three loud boys and three contented pigs, sewing is my escape to a girly world of pink, glitter and Liberty of London fabrics. But I create gifts for boys just as much as girls, otherwise my children would revolt – hence the rockets, pirates and building bricks in my designs.
nickynackynoo began as an antidote to the plastic offerings available on the high street when shopping for party gifts. I wanted my children to arrive at parties bearing beautiful, creative, fun presents and when I couldn't find what I wanted at an affordable price, I decided to make my own. Now, years later, I still love seeing the delight on children's faces when they open the presents I've designed and made for them. And when a mother tells me her daughter took her Liberty print cushion to her first sleepover, or that her son slept with his new personalised water bottle that night because it was his favourite present, I know I've done my job!
We offer an inspiring collection of personalised gifts for children. The Liberty of London range of personalised purses, mirrors, hot water bottles and cushions appeal to all ages - from little ones, through to "tweens" and adults. Boys are equally thrilled with my new Building Brick Figure personalised range of purses, pencil cases, cards, prints, mugs and water bottles - great favourites of my boys and their friends (the joy of being immortalised as an image of a small plastic figure!). I hope our ideas make your present shopping more enjoyable.
