About Us

We are a small family-run online shop in Cymru.

I'm Becca, the owner and manager of welshgiftshop.com. I live in the Treganna / Canton suburb of Caerdydd / Cardiff and my husband and I have two young children and a friendly cat called Tom (all who have modeled our products for us!). My mother is first language Welsh so helps me with product inspiration and our gifts are packed by the lovely Jenna Abertawe / Swansea

I started the business in 2012 and I feel very fortunate to be able to work from home throughout the pandemic, a serious family illness and welcoming my daughters into the world. It hasn't been an easy time for us and many other small businesses like us - but it is with the support of customers like you which means we are still here!

I will always go the extra mile to ensure you are happy with your purchase. Think of us as your own personal shoppers!

Through this website, we aim to preserve, celebrate and support the wonderful traditions and crafts of Cymru - and make them available worldwide.

All of our products have been sourced by us and are of the highest quality. Enjoy the very best of Cymru!
