Meet The Team
The Talent Behind Daisy Chain Gifts
The team at Daisy Chain Gifts is experienced, skilled, but most of all, friendly. This amazing group of people is such a huge part of what makes your online shopping experience as enjoyable and satisfying as can be.
Gillian started out on her soap making journey after seeing an online "how to" video and thinking "I can do that!".
Failed attempts followed but despite that she absolutely loved the process and with practice progressed from simple melt and pour bars, to more complex cold process soaps. Marriage to Steve meant a move to the US and new opportunity for Daisy Chain Gifts. Primarily an online store, Gillian was keen to retain it's English identity.
"We wanted the store to have a strong nod to my English roots, especially because of the Colonial links to Virginia, so all our stock is either handmade in-house or sourced from sellers in the UK, meaning we have a wide range of products, some of which are not available anywhere else in the United States."
Margaret (Gill's Mom) is the knitter extraordinaire! She is responsible for creating the luxuriously soft and snuggly scarves, hats, and baby blankets found in our online store. She is also an avid photographer with a keen eye for a picture, often spotting images no one else notices. It is Margaret's photography (most of which are scenes from around Yorkshire, England or the flowers in her garden in Leeds) which grace our prints and handmade cards.
Margaret is a regular visitor to the States (bringing yet more knitting) and loves to see her creations on our Etsy page. "We are delighted to be able to feature some of Mum's photos on our cards and prints as it is a way to share our hometown with our customers and friends."
