Living my Best Life

When my eldest was little, whenever she wanted something and she knew I was weakening, she’d do this really cute smile and come up and whisper “please? with a Cherry on top?” When I was thinking about my business, that’s the feeling I wanted my products to have, so Gifts with a Cherry on Top was born!

By opening this shop, I have been able to shape my work life around my dreams and goals. Practically, this means being around more for my two girls and enabled us to relocate to The Witterings.

Professionally, all my time, effort, and ideas are shaping something that is mine instead of other peoples. It is a definite learning curve but one that I fins very exciting.

I love that clients message me and ask me to create something really special for the occasion or when people contact me having admired a friend’s Gifts with a Cherry on Top piece, as I know I am doing something right. Recently, bring a client’s favourite painting to life via stencil on a drinks tray! Working with Corporate clients was something that I hadn't envisaged but fortunately, it has

The shop is growing, and it is interesting seeing what products work, at what time and it isn't always the ones you expect!

Anyway, please have a look at my shop and if you have a special gift or an idea needing brought to life, please do not hesitate to contact me

What is “Live Edge”

Live Edge refers to an edge that has been left in its natural shape and the bark has been stripped back to reveal the grain underneath.

It does not refer to the curve, wavy nature of the edge. The shape will be down to the piece of timber used on your piece but as each of our pieces are made to order, each piece will be unique. Unfortunately, we can not guarantee how curvy the piece will be as we will always choose the best quality piece over the shape of the piece.

If you have any specific requirements, then we would recommend discussing them with is prior to purchase.

Treatment for wood boring insects

All the oaks have been treated with EVERBUILD Triple action wood treatment for wood boring insects. This protects the wood against re-infestation but also means that it breaks the life cycle, as, if there is any "activity", insects that may appear will have had to burrow through the treated wood so will die prior to multiplying &completing their life cycle. However, as with any exposed timber, we recommend a retreat every year with a treatment for protection against moisture &with Oaks, protection against wood boring insects.

Care Instructions for trays & boxes

All the trays & boxes have been sprayed with a coat of lacquer “Rustoleum Crystal Clear” to seal the design. We recommend only using a damp cloth (with no residue of spray on it) or a baby wipe to clean them. If you use any chemicals, including antibacterial wipes, this can react with lacquer meaning you will smudge the design.

Customs & import taxes

Please note that any orders going outside the UK may be subject to customs or import taxes, as per Etsy policies these are solely the buyers responsibility as they differ from country to country and eve state to state. We suggest checking these prior to purchase as your order will not be released by customs until the fees are paid & any delays may mean your item is returned back to us. If this occurs, no refunds will be issued and any re-shipping charges will be at the buyers costs.

Aftercare for your wood piece

Please note oil treatment can take up to 2 weeks from application to fully cure.

Here are a few tips to keep it looking special:
1. Do not leave water to dry on it, treat it like you would a coffee table, even when treated water can mark. The treatment protects it against penetrating water damage but this doesn’t mean water won’t mark.
2. Do not use chemicals on the piece. Any chemicals may affect the treatment used. We don’t just mean cleaning products, even soap, shampoo, body wash, tooth paste etc can react with the treatment effectively striping it.
3. You will need to retreat your piece from time to time, depending on use & environment. Give it a light sand down (until any marks disappear) then retreat with your oil of choice.
