Outside the box branding
21st century gift giving certainly looks a lot different to the way our parents shopped for presents. More product choice is actually making it harder for us to choose things. More of us are shopping online than ever before, and people are also demanding more creative gifts which can be personalised to suit their needs. One e-commerce retailer has cornered this unique niche in the online marketplace, selling over 70,000 original products from more than 3,500 independent businesses. We're talking about Not On The High Street (NOTHS).
From gifts that will make you look good to out-of-the-ordinary home and fashion accessories, Not On The High Street sells unique products from creatives and designers, many of which can be personalised. Think mirrored balloon lights, retro-inspired 1950s armchairs and initial pendants.
From little acorns
In 2006, co-founders Holly Tucker and Sophie Cornish sat around their little kitchen table and came up with a big idea to provide the nation with something different, - the most unique, stylish and never-before-seen products. Now one of the most high-profile e-commerce businesses in the country, the company is valued at £81.4 million. To date they have received over 24 awards for customer service and entrepreneurship and have just landed £21 million in investment, allowing them to expand their market.
