|The Ellie Spoon Gift Company is a small family run business that specialises in luxury baby baskets, brimming with adorable gifts for baby boys and girls, and provides a beautiful collection of babywear bouquets and nappy cakes.
We began with a vision to offer unique luxury baby gifts for those special occasions, at affordable prices, without having to find the time to visit the shops ...
As every mum will concur, it is increasingly difficult to find the time to browse and find good quality baby gifts for friends and family, especially when you have young children!
As a mum with a career and three little ones I know how precious time can be.
All Ellie Spoon gifts are carefully chosen and beautifully presented. We offer only high quality baby products that we would like to receive ourselves. Time is taken to give each order it's own personal touch - something that you don't find on the high street.
We hope you enjoy shopping with us and would welcome any comments or suggestions. It is always worth talking to us because we often have codes for discounts / free delivery / special offers so go on, click here and tell us what you are after and see what we can do!

I KNOW WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE A GREAT BABY GIFT. AS A MUM OF 3 I DON’T JUST KNOW WHAT MUMS WANT, I KNOW WHAT THEY NEED
Imagine you are a new mum and you are very very tired, the door bell rings and it is the last thing you need - talking to someone. BUT this is a courier with a very large box and it's for you and you weren't expecting anything. And inside this fairly plain box is a stunningly and professionally presented gift basket. This is a big box of love and best wishes all cellophane wrapped with ribbons, bows, and your personal message and it's from someone that clearly cares a great deal about you! Yes all mums want a lovely gift – but I think they DESERVE a gift that will take their breath away.
As a mum I know that buying cheap is false economy. Babies clothes and toys are in for some very tough treatment. They're going to need washing - lots of it. Mums want quality products that are going to stand up to these rigours and that are going to last i.e. a Silk blanket that improves with time.
I know that mums want babies clothes to look cute but they also need them to serve a function and be practical i.e. Cashmere to keep the baby warm in winter and cool in summer.
A quality product that can be handed down to future siblings is not just a lovely gift - it's an investment and possible even a family heirloom. Remember traditional simple styles aren't going to go out of fashion.
Babies grow up so fast, so make the most of this precious time now and spoil them, just a little bit, before time marches on.
I only sell products that I would like to receive myself. I have sole responsibility for sourcing all products, and I create all the gifts personally with my own hands. Yes, I have lots of help from my family and I couldn't do this without them. I acknowledge that I’m not the best at Web Design, Finance, Stock Control and Packing up boxes BUT I am good at selecting the finest products, the presentation of the gifts and ensuring excellent customer service. This business is like another of my babies!
Mums care about ethics - Over 90% of our range is made in the UK, most is handmade, and this ensures quality and that certain standards are adhered to. Raw materials are ethically sourced and fairly traded. We strive to use organic products wherever possible. Unfortunately all this doesn’t come cheap and we are never going to compete on cost with items mass produced thousands of miles away and sold on the High Street with little regard for workers or the environment.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT "CREATE YOUR OWN GIFT"
Yes we really do this for free and we include a quality wicker basket as well. Just select a minimum of five items!
Simply choose five or more items from the menus on the left and we will build your own unique Gift, tailored especially for the lucky recipient. It's that simple - the price of the items that you see on the menus is what you will pay (a delivery charge is made only for orders below £60).
By default we will use one of our gorgeous cotton lined wicker baskets. Our range of baskets and keepsake boxes are specially selected for their quality and endurance and will be utilised for years to come. You can of course have any of our Gift, Memento, or Keepsake Boxes as long as the size is suitable. Just email us to let us know your wishes and we will vary your order accordingly.
Every Gift Basket and Gift Hamper is beautifully presented in an individual manner. We are a small family run firm and everyone working here has a direct interest in the business. Nothing less than perfect is acceptable and all our Gifts are guaranteed to take mummy and daddys breath away. After its creation, each Gift Basket is cellophane wrapped, tied with a co-ordinating organza ribbon and complimented with your own personal message handwritten on the gift tag.
It is then packed in a double walled outer packing box and carefully protected to ensure that it looks as stunning when it comes out of the box as it did when it went in. A major national courier is then tasked to get it to your recipient, and the tracking code is emailed to you.
Don't forget to add your personal message at checkout.
If you have any queries or special requirements we will endeavour to help you. Maybe you can't see exactly what you want, maybe you have a specific budget to work to.or maybe you don’t know what you want in the gift, maybe you are a man – only joking.
We do think that we are a lot more flexible and amiable than our larger competitors. So go on, just try us and see for yourself.
Please click here and give us all the information you have and we will endeavour to help you.

... the present arrived safely and very promptly and X was delighted when I gave it to her. I had a look at the present when it was delivered (we never saw what we had ordered before)the presentation is beautiful and the note was just right. Thank you Steve - London - Dec 12
Dear Frances, Thank you so much! I currently live in Cyprus and wanted a site that was not just safe to use but also had a great gift basket that had everything! I searched a lot of sites looking for the perfect basket for my friend who lives in the UK for her new baby girl and to be honest was a little disappointed with the selections. I came across Ellie Spoon by chance on google and as soon as I saw this gift I knew it was the perfect present. My friend absolutely loved it too!! The emails you sent to confirm the order and then again to confirm the delivery was also a very nice touch, in future I will be using this site without a doubt for baby gifts and will be recommending you too. Thank you so much!! Jale - Cyprus to Bromley, UK - Sep 2012
Hi Frances, I would like to thank you for you excellent service and your fabulous range of truly unique and gorgeous gifts. I spent many hours searching the internet for something a little bit different and I was delighted when I discovered your website. Your service is fantastic and delivery extremely prompt! My sister called me only half an hour ago to tell me she had received the gift and absolutely loved it! I will definitely be recommending you to my friends and will certainly be shopping with you again in the future! Thankyou once again. Anita - ordered Australia delivered London - Aug 2012

I just wanted to let you know the new mum absolutely loved it and burst into tears when she opened the box. Kate - Southampton - Feb 2012
Hi Frances, Congratulations on your new business and thanks for reading my books! My friend was delighted with the hamper, this is her first girl so she was delighted to finally be able to indulge in girly pink things. The cupcake set was so pretty. I found your prices very reasonable for the amount of pieces in the hamper and really liked how it was displayed in the basket. I'm constantly buying gifts online and find that many hampers are filled with many unnecessary items just to bulk it up - like combs and teddy bears that newborn babies do not need! I really liked your hamper, it was so sweet and perfect! Best of luck with the business, I'm sure I'll be back shopping with you. Do you deliver to ireland to? Cecelia - London - January 2012
Hi Frances, What can I say... the feedback has been wonderful and Mummy and baby have all enjoyed their gifts. I will be ordering one more off you shortly. Many Thanks. Pure Sports Medicine - Kensington - Jan 2012
Hi Frances, Thank you so much for the beautiful gift - recipients were absolutely overjoyed! Will recommend Ellie Spoon to all my friends! Cerian - London - Jan 2012

Simone - London - November 2011
