About Us | Our History & Our Brands
The Home of Gifts is the exclusive, direct from source, outlet store for 5 of the world’s leading gift and home collections.
For over 130 years our parent company WIDDOP and Co. has been one of the UK’s most esteemed suppliers of wholesale gifts and home accessories to the retail trade. Now in its fifth generation, with suppliers who we have dealt with for over 30 years all over the world, the same family values and pride runs through all that we do.
The Home of Gifts shop was launched in 2020 in response to the unprecedented changes to the global retail environment and it means that WIDDOP & Co finally have a platform that showcases the complete collection across many of what were previously, wholesale only, brands.
Each of our brands is exclusively designed in the UK by our team of wonderful designers to provide perfect gifts and keepsakes to celebrate all of life’s most important milestones and special occasions.
Not only are we the original source for these brands, but we also know that ethics and sustainability have never been more important.
With this in mind, you should know that;
- Everything we sell is designed in the UK by our own team
- Our gifts are curated personally by the team from over 350 factories around the world
- Our factories are ethically and technically audited to the highest SMETA standards
- We have won 14 GREATS awards in 14 years for our standard of customer service
- We are one of the founding members of the Slave Free Alliance and we do everything possible to guarantee a slave free supply chain
- We are proud partners of Mahdlo, Dr Kershaw’s hospice and Hope for Justice
When you buy from The Home of Gifts, not only are you supporting our global mission to eliminate modern slavery, but you are supporting a family business. Our mission is to create truly unique gifts which can be an everlasting gateway to your most precious memories.
