A RETIREMENT GIFT THAT STANDS IN TIME: If you are looking for the ultimate retirement gift for your beloved one, then we have got you covered. We proudly present you, our modern collection of sundials! Combining, simplicity, elegance and durability, our sundials make wonderful presents that will be appreciated for many years to come!

Scroll down to explore the collection on the links below.

THE PERFECT GIFT FOR ALL: Our handmade sundial collection is here to accommodate even the most demanding needs! Ideal for a birthday, anniversary, retirement or Christmas and every celebration in between; for him and her, your favourite couple, your parents or grandparents, dear friends and beloved ones!

FOR BOTH INDOOR & OUTDOOR USE: Each 6.25” sundial comes with a bracket to facilitate the sundial to stand on its own at an angle indoors for ornamental purposes. Alternatively, each sundial can be purchased with our outdoor large pedestal stand if you do not have a plinth to mount the sundial onto.

99% RECYCLED: All our plaques and sundials are made from SCRAP METAL and are completely recyclable with absolutely NO PLASTIC. Feel free to reuse the packaging once your sundial or plaque has its special place in your home, office or garden.

MADE IN THE UK: All our sundials and plaques are proudly and completely handmade in the United Kingdom by skillful English craftsmen. These solid heavy duty hand polished cast brass sundials are forged as they have been for hundreds of years, using traditional sand casting. Each one is then painted with quality outdoor paint, fully lacquered on completion for extra protection, to enable it to endure wind, rain, frost and the occasional British sunshine.

DIMENSIONS: Diameter 160mm (6¼") and height with gnomon 75mm (3").

Both the standard and custom retirement sundials are cast from Brass, with a choice of up to 8 colours for the painted background. The inscription on the standard retirement sundial reads;

Congratulations On Your Retirement"

The custom Retirement sundial allows you have personalised wording. With your message cast into the very fabric of the metal itself your loved one will know the effort we have gone through to bring your thoughts and your message of love to them. To use personalised wording, please select the ‘Fully Custom’ option.

Please note, orders for standard items are usually dispatched the same day if ordered before 1pm GMT. Or dispatched the following business day if ordered after 1pm.

I was very pleased with this gift and couldn't wait to give it to my boss for his retirement! Chris was wonderful to work with and always responded quickly to my inquiries! He was able to use the quote I requested to personalize the sundial and it turned out to be the most special and unique gift. Can't wait to see it in my boss' garden! Thank you so much!

This shop was very easy to work with. I changed the order half way through the process and they coordinated it perfectly. The item is beautiful and much better than the pictures depict it. The item showed up right on the day I needed it even with the changes that I made. This is the way you are supposed to do business. Thanks guys.

It was delivered really quickly and absolutely beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. Perfect retirement gift for our avid gardener, it now has pride of place at his allotment 😃

Very cute and very timely. My dad would have appreciated a little handout to go with it. Not about how to put it together but the best place to put it outside.
