items of note A Modern Gift Shop
There’s nothing quite like giving a really good present. It feels nice to give something special, or even to treat yourself now and again.
A great gift doesn’t have to be big or expensive. But it should be well made, and it should make you smile. Even better if it comes wrapped in lovely papers, with a beautiful card tucked inside.
items of note is an evolving edit of gifts for children, the home and you. The collection has been lovingly edited for quality and style, with a particular soft spot for hand made, east London and UK design. We think some of the best gifts are special versions of the things you use every day.
We love searching high and low to source affordable, amazing things including cards and wrapping papers, ceramics, plants, candles, books, stationary and children’s toys. So you can enjoy shopping from some of the best international design brands and London creatives on your local high street. Some items have been made specially for the shop, so you won’t ﬁnd them anywhere else.
We are proud to be established in our favourite cafe and pizzeria, Corner Kitchen, in Forest Gate, east London. Good food, drink and shopping is an excellent combination. Why not enjoy browsing for a gift after lunch, or pop in to pick up a birthday card with your take away coffee?
We look forward to saying hello soon.
