Whilst on holiday in the Lake District last October half term, we discovered a great shop in Ambleside selling all kinds of fabulous gifts, gadgets and home interiors. What we loved about it was its contemporary, inspirational stock and unusual mix of brands.
Detail, on 2 small floors is an eclectic mix of stationery, home and personal gadgets. Interesting, modern and with a nod to the absurd, many of the products shout ‘buy me now’ and it was hard to leave without bags full of purchases. Several Christmas gifts were made that day.
Brands that we love? Well, there’s Koziol and it’s cute contemporary products and gifts, like the Taschelini bag. Ideal for storing anything from jewellery, pens, makeup, even useful for flowers.
Herdy, contemporary products with a design based on Herdwick sheep, a Lake District breed that survives against all odds on the high fells. We particularly loved the Herdy mugs, which are very popular in many gift shops across the Lakes.
And finally Fred, amusing, innovative and very different products. We loved the shaped Gin and Titonic ice cubes and the very cute and useful kids chopsticks.
Never fear, if you aren’t going to be in Ambleside or Windermere in the near future, you can shop online at Detail’s website DetailRetail and they will deliver direct to you.
Definitely a shop to bookmark for when you are next looking for a gift for that difficult to buy for family member or when you want something a little more unusual for the home.
