Hello, and thank you for visiting Gift By Post - Homeware and Gifts for all Occasions.
Along with personalised and non-personalised gifts we also sell products featuring characters from TV and Film.
We are Mike, Chris and Beth, and this website was set up as an extension to our already successful gift store and Post Office in the market town of Leek in Staffordshire.
Back in July 2004 (what seems like a life time ago), Mike and Chris bought their first Post Office, Picton Street, which was 1 of 12 at the time. An exciting but scary time, as it meant working together as a married couple, and also becoming self-employed.
At the time the office only had room for a couple of card stands, stationary, and a very few select gifts.
In 2013, they were presented with the opportunity to move into bigger premises. Along with this came a name change to Westwood Post Office, and a massive expansion of the shop. They now stocked a wide range of gift ware and party supplies for the town.
In May 2017, Chris and Mike were approached by Post Office Ltd, and asked to once again expand into larger premises as they were now to be the only Post Office in the town. A big change from when they first started!
Not to shy away from a challenge, the two worked tirelessly so that on 8th November 2017, the new Leek Post Office opened on High Street in Leek. With a large retail space came the opportunity to once again develop the retail side of the business.
Towards the end of 2018, it was decided that the retail business should expand, and that we should sell our goods online. In March 2019 their daughter Beth (me by the way), joined the family business, having spent the last 15 years working for Post Office Ltd and Royal Mail as an Area Manager.
Below you can see some of the wonderful reviews our customers have left us on Facebook.
We are very proud of our family business, and we hope you love our products as much as we do.
