Welcome to Sleepyheads and our world of beautiful gifts for your family, friends and home. Based in the beautiful South Derbyshire countryside, we are a small team who are passionate about what we do and take great pride in designing and sourcing high quality gifts and offering great customer service.
Our story began in 2003. At the time, Sleepyheads founder Claire Hynam was enjoying a long and successful career working as a retail buyer for international high street brands. The job had been my dream and I’d worked long and hard to get there, yet I didn’t feel fulfilled by it. I needed a more purposeful role where I could work closely with other small businesses to design and source memorable gifts that weren’t available in every shop and which really meant something to the recipients. So with a deep breath, I took the plunge, left my role (and its’ regular salary!) behind me and set out on a mission to create a really passionate little business.
Thirteen years on, there is not one day I regret my decision to go it alone. As a small British business ourselves, we remain passionate about sourcing British products and supporting other small British businesses along the way. We work with a fabulous team of expert embroiderers, ceramicists, engravers and machinists throughout Britain and I hope the passion that my team and I feel for the business shines through in both our products and service we offer. After all, our business is nothing without our wonderful customers and you deserve to receive a warm welcome and feel highly valued. Every single purchase matters to us, no matter how large or small and we’re often able to accommodate special requests. Our ‘queen of customer service’ Morag is always happy to have a chat so please don't be afraid to click on the ‘contact seller’ button with any questions you may have.
I hope we can help you find a truly memorable gift for your family, friends or home and we look forward to serving you.
