About Us

The story so far

TokenGift is based in the beautiful and historical city of Exeter. We are deliberately small meaning we can provide the attention to detail synonymous with thoughtful gift giving.

My name is Angelina and my partner Mark and I are the sole staff at Tokengift.

I have always enjoyed giving surprise little gifts, the seed was planted very young when my Gran gave me a tiny doll, no bigger than my hand, to carry in my bag on my first day at school.

It has since struck me how the little gestures we make often have the most meaning.

Over the years I have spent hours (probably weeks!) hunting high and low for unique little treasures and thoughtfully worded cards. I have found that it is actually quite difficult, not to mention time-consuming to wade through large websites to find exactly the right thing. I love handmade items and am in awe of the talented crafts people and designers we have in this country, I love to support them whenever possible. However due to the very nature of individually handcrafted items, the wait is often a little longer, so I decided to create a shop which celebrates the amazing designers and makers we have here in the UK.

I purposely wanted each item to be a small token rather than a large extravagance, to arrive quickly and beautifully packaged.

If the pieces we sell bring a smile to someone's face or help provide the quiet, understated reassurance that my tiny doll did on my first day at school, then our job is done.

Because we are so small, we can provide a completely personalised service. If there is anything you want please just ask, I love gift wrapping and we can hand write cards and gift tags at your request.

Meanwhile my search for perfect little gifts continues, fuelled entirely by tea and enthusiasm, so keep watching for tiny new treasures!
