christmas gifts from not on the high street

If you need a Christmas gift that’s totally unique, look no further than Not On The High Street.

With thousands of unusual gifts, and something to suit everyone, it’s a great one-stop shop for everything you need. Here’s what you need to know:

What is Not On The High Street?

The online marketplace was launched 10 years ago by two female founders, Holly Tucker and Sophie Cornish. The site works with ‘partners’ - often smaller businesses (5,000 and counting) - to sell unusual, unique products that you wouldn’t find on the high street.

With lots of personalised products, and some very niche ones, it’s a great place to find thoughtful gifts, original homeware and unforgettable experiences. For example, need a card for someone moving to Australia? You can get it. What about a festive tree topper? Get a personalised one! A gift for someone who loves golf? Their very own personalised gloves should go down a treat.

So, as you can imagine, it’s a great place to get Christmas gifts for even the fussiest person in your life. With hundreds of thousands of products to choose from, we’ve found 19 of the very best to inspire your gift list this festive season.
