More about me

Hi, my name is Chris and welcome to Poppy’s Handcrafted Gifts.

People often ask why Poppy’s when my name is Chris? – Years ago in my working life someone from the Far East thought my surname was my first name, mispronounced it, and called me Poppy. The nickname stuck until the day I retired. So when thinking of a name for my craft business, Poppy’s was the obvious choice.

I’ve crafted all my life, but with a family and a very busy working life, my makes were limited to gifts for family and friends, special requests, and Craft Fairs. I’m now in a position in my life where I can do what I love, crafting handmade home decor that also makes great gifts. I live 100 metres from the Sea, and although I never go in, I love walking along the seafront getting in my 10,000 steps thinking up new designs and ideas.

Everything in the shop is handmade by me, with the exception of Bottle Openers and Bird Feeders, these are made by my husband which are then laser engraved by me.

Personalised options available on many items, so please enjoy browsing my shop for Handmade Home Decor and Gifts for friends and family.

Whether you call them Cushions or Pillows, my shop has a choice of Harris Tweed, Appliqué, Embroidered, and Patterned Featured ones all individually hand made, and depending on design suitable to brighten any room, and make great gifts when matched to the persons colour scheme, likes and interests.
