Thank you so much for the wonderful cushion. It was perfect and even nicer than I had hoped. The personalisation on the back was brilliant. I haven't bought a nicer 50th birthday present and will come back for more!! Thanks again,

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the t-shirt. It arrived in plenty of time for Father's Day and my husband loved it. I've been telling everyone about your website!

I received my lamp, delighted with it, as it was to replace the identical lamp my 3 year old granson knocked over and I needed to match it with my two others. Thank you for an excellent service.

Hi, received my order swiftly, thanks for that, really lovely items, the little shoes are cream and not pink as shown online, however, they're so pretty the colour doesn't really matter, thanks again for super service.

Just a small note to say a big thank you for pulling out all the stops for my late order of the Josy/Ella blankets which arrived this morning, and are now winging their way to Toulouse and Leipzig. Blankets as lovely as ever, and up to your high standard as usual.
Pam, Truro

Thanks ever so much for the quilt and pillowcase "OWEN's" parents were thrilled. I am sure you will receive a lot more orders as already a few of my friends have asked where they can buy the same.

I just wanted to email to say how delighted I am with my recent order. So quick to arrive, and such a beautiful blanket, thank you. I have many friends with babies due and will almost definitely return to order more of these.

Many thanks for the Christmas Sack I ordered and safely received today. I am absolutely thrilled with this, the quality is superb and it looks so much better in 'real life' than on the web page. It is absolutely gorgeous and I know it will be appreciated by my granddaughter for many years to come. Once again many thanks.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for dropping off the hot water bottle by hand. It was really unexpected and I certainly didn't expect anyone to go out of their way to get it to me so I am extremely grateful. The bottle cover is gorgeous and will be very much appreciated at the birthday party tomorrow. I am sure there will be more orders coming your way - certainly from our house. Thank you again for going out of your way to drop it off - it really was truly unexpected and heartwarming in this day and age.

Dear Sue, thank you very much; the apron arrived on Saturday morning with plenty of time to spare before the birthday tomorrow. The quick turn around has been appreciated. With kind regards

About Us

polaroidOriginally based in the lovely Derbyshire village of Mickleover, about 4 miles from Derby city, The Alphabet Gift Shop Ltd is four businesses in one.

It has 2 gorgeous gift shops, in Mickleover and Burton on Trent, specialising in personalised gifts for all occasions and celebrations, a wholesale gift business, a product design and personalisation department and within The Alphabet Gift Shop Burton, the Lowercase coffee shop!

From it’s party planning days back in thelate 90’s the business has changed and developed over its fourteen year history.

It started with the birth of “Sweaty Sues” (don’t ask!) our bespoke fleece tops that were sold by a team of party planners through home parties up and down the country (some of those fleeces are still going strong!)

As fleeces became popular on the high street it moved on to design and produce a range of nightwear and casual wear under the brand name “Lazy Sunday” which were selected by buyers from independent shops across the UK and department stores Beatties, Harrods and Jenners of Edinburgh.

The success of the Lazy Sunday brand led to the development of a range for babies and children which was called Little Lazy, the brand name which is still use for the company’s range of baby and children’s cushions, blankets and bags.

We continue to supply our Little Lazy range to mail order catalogues such as Mothercare and Party Pieces, to websites specializing in either children's gifts or personalised gifts, to independent retailers with shops or boutiques across the country and to specialist gift website Not on the High Street.

And of course, the Little Lazy range features in our gift shop and on this website.

When we buy for our shop and for the website we look for beautifully made, thoughtfully designed, inspiring products that we would love to have in our own homes. Products that are made in the UK and, in particular in Derbyshire are particularly appealing and we are constantly amazed at the skill and talent of our local Derbyshire and Staffordshire designer makers.

We hope you will find something to surprise and delight as you look through the pages of our website and we would love to hear your comments and suggestions. sue@thealphabetgiftshop.co.uk
