Not On The High Street - Unique and Different Gifts

I love supporting local and small businesses and I adore Not On The High Street. It has all your small family run businesses online, it's like your local independent and artisan marketplace and you can order all at a touch of a button.




If you want the most exquisite gifts and unique products then this is the place. They are passionate about hand-picking the best creative small businesses to sell on their marketplace, making it simple for you to find inspired, personalised, stylish or unique things.

The website is easy to navigate in various categories. Want a present under £15? No problem! Want to find a personalised art print?  They have plenty. What about a vintage style rag doll or a wooden train set? This is the place.

The difficult thing was picking items to review, as I really couldn't choose. 

Firstly I picked the cookie cutters. Recently I have been cooking more than ever and I thought these looked cute and would be great to give my biscuits that professional look. I wasn't disappointed, a beautiful looking cookie cutter which made great cookies. I just loved the gingham packaging too.

My next item was a gorgeous pearl bracelet with silver coloured initials from Kathy Jobson. The freshwater pearls were a lovely ivory colour and although the initials are not silver the bracelet was only £11.50. For a quality piece of jewellery this price can hardly be beaten.

My last lovely item to review was the Marvellous Movie Night Hamper. I ordered this as I thought it would be a perfect treat for my son. He loves movies and wants to work in the film industry. The tote bag is packed full of delicious treats such as tortilla chips, gourmet popcorn, American sweets and other tasty goodies. A perfect present for a friend or loved one that just adores films. Unfortunately a couple of items were missing from my hamper (the Reece's Peanut butter cups and Oreo cookies), and the presentation in the tote bag could have been better themed as the bag was plain. Still a tasty gift but perhaps a little bit expensive at £24.99.

I am keeping this for him for his birthday, just have to add the film Alpha Pappa now :D
