Our journey began in October 2019 when I was on maternity leave with my second child.
Christmas had always been one of my favourite times of the year and after seeing a number Facebook posts advertising hand-made Christmas gifts, I realised how much I loved those items that made Christmas even more magical.
I started off with the launch of our personalised letters from Santa, elf gifts and Christmas Wish bracelets. Excited and passionate, the ideas kept coming and I rapidly added more items to our collection. As more and more orders came in, my husband began helping me hand-make products and process orders.
After Christmas, we had some time to reflect and we were overwhelmed by the number of orders, positive reviews and the success of our products. We started to plan and prepare for 2020 – completely unaware of the year ahead!
Full of ideas and following the success of our ‘Pocket Hugs’, our business continued to grow quickly and more family members and friends joined our team. In March 2020, we decided to make a few changes to brand and we are now delighted to welcome you to … The Funky Deer!
