THE UK GIFT COMPANY
Our Product Ranges
With the experience we have of the gift industry, we’re all too aware of the need to keep our product ranges fresh and appealing. In this section, you’ll find a summary of our principle collections –
Willow Tree Figures - these amazing gifts have been with us now for over a decade. Our initial thought were sceptical. Would these enchanting figures with the oddly featureless faces, catch the imagination of the gift buying public? We needn't have doubted their success. From the very beginning, Willow Tree Figures took the world by storm and broke all records. We're proud to have been for many years the country's number one stockist of this great Willow Tree range and look forward to supplying this amazing and evocative collection for many years to come. Susan Lordi, the creator and designer of these beautiful figures never fails to come up with new designs year after year.
- Moorcroft Pottery For Sale! -Britain's favourite and most famous art pottery continues to stand proudly as our premium gift brand. Our range of thee beautiful and striking pieces is second to none. Moorcroft Pottery celebrated its centenary only last year and continues to surprise and delight collectors from around the world. Established ranges include Queen's Choice (designed by Emma Bossons FRCA) and Anna Lily (designer Nicola Slaney) both of which have been in production for over a decade. But such longevity is unusual. The more customary lifespan of a design from Moorcroft Pottery is just two years or eighteen months. Recent additions are Anemone Blush, Courting Birds and the striking Chocolate Cosmos. With new and enthralling designs emerging year after year, there's no doubt that Moorcroft Pottery will be around for many more years to come.
- Swarovski Crystal - this gorgeous crystal gift brand is now known the world over as one of the most upmarket and prestigious names in the gift industry. However, few are aware of the origins of Swarovski Crystal. For a hundred years or so, this name was known, not for manufacturing beautiful jewellery or crystal animals. It was known instead for the production of glass for use in laboratory science. The break from tradition came in 1974, when the Winter Olympics were held in Innsbruck in Austria and Swarovski Crystal were invited to produce a little crystal bear to represent the Olympic mascot. Now, of course, the company has changed beyond all recognition, with it being renowned the world over for the Swarovski Disney Collection, for its stunning jewellery ranges, as well as it sculptural crystal ornaments. Customers buy this collection for any number of reasons, but probably the most populr reason for purchasing Swarovski Crystal is for an Anniversary Gift.
- Lladro Porcelain - probably the best known and most popular range of porcelain figurines on the planet, the story od this amazing company is much like a fairy tale. It all began in the 1950s, when the three young and artistic Lladro brothers, set out on their path of destiny to produce porcelain figurines of exquisite beauty and artistic content. In the decades that have followed they have produced an almost uncountable collection of porcelain musical figures, romantic figurines and porcelain animals.

Our Company Philosophy
Although The UK Gift Company has been trading online for almost ten years now, we were established as a gift retail business for many years before - 150 years in fact! So, when we set up online, we were convinced that, although the technology was new, the main principles of successful retailing still applied – in other words, looking after the customer. If we were to continue to remain at the forefront of selling gifts and collectables, putting customers first was an absolute non-negotiable ‘must’. If you read our Delivery and Shipping Information, as well as our Returns Policy, you’ll see exactly what we mean. In short, we understand that without you, our customer, we have no business at all. So that’s exactly, every decision we take about the design of this website and about the service we offer, is made by putting ourselves in your shoes and asking ourselves, “What does our customer want.”
