What I Always Wanted is a beautiful online gifts and homeware store. It supports home grown talent and independent businesses, something which I wholeheartedly support. Three cheers for them please.
When I was asked if I’d be interested in writing a blog post about them I didn’t need to think twice. I love nearly everything on their website including their ethos.
All their products are designed and made in the UK, many of which are made from eco-friendly materials or ‘upcycled’. There is even an option to personalise some of the products.
One of the many things I love about this website is how passionate owners, Deborah Bancroft and Ann Ellison are about their products. They love nothing more than tracking down beautifully designed and crafted British gifts and homeware. This passion shows in the products they’ve carefully chosen.
With Christmas just around the corner, yes I did just mention the ‘C’ word, why not pop over to What I Always Wanted and see what they have to offer. Not only will you be supporting some great British Designers but you also have the opportunity to purchase some original and unique homeware.
