What is it?

A hidden gem of a shop, Snowden Flood's HQ is tucked away in London's iconic Oxo Tower. Specialising in unique and beautiful gifts and souvenirs made in the UK – from ceramics and jewellery to foodie treats – you need never enter a tatty souvenir shop ever again (as if you would). There are also carefully sourced products from other designers and producers, as well as antique one-offs. If you're not within reach of the capital, don't fear – everything's available on Snowden Flood's online shop, too.

What's the style?

Fresh, contemporary and crisp. Think cool, graphic printed plates and illustrated everyday glassware.

Why do we love it?

As the wedding season approaches and the desperate hunt for gorgeous, meaningful and stylish gifts commences, Snowden Flood could be your secret weapon. Striking a fine balance between quirky and timeless, Snowden's designs are effortlessly chic, not to mention of the highest quality. A platinum finished tea set featuring the winding river Thames is the ideal gift for that cool young couple, for example, whereas a silk scarf by designer Karen Mabon makes for a great present idea for a special occasion or birthday. So that's your gift shopping sorted until Christmas, then.

Oh, and one more thing. We love Snowden's personal introductions to each product on the website, explaining why she's chosen each and every thing in her shop and what makes it so special. Be warned – It might make your purchases harder to part with.
