Corporate gifting and personal gift shopping
Send your Christmas gifts with us because seriously, who has ever asked Santa for a tin of shortbread?Get started
At drop by LOCAL, we believe that corporate gifting should be an opportunity to support the best of independent UK businesses while making the process less of a headache for the person put in charge of that Christmas gifting task in August.
Gone are the days of uninspired, generic gifts that lack thought and quality. You don’t need to play it safe with the same Fortnum and Mason hamper or box of Hotel Chocolates because we are here to offer you a refreshing approach, bringing you better quality gifts that people truly want. Think indy coffee roasters to local chocolatiers, funky bottles of orange wine to personalised goodie bags.
Say no to poor quality items that are just bulking out hampers and wasting extra money spent on wicker presentation baskets. We believe in our products and we believe that your recipients will remember them and you for championing small indy producers.
So here’s the 411
We offer a range of “actually good” gifts, no shit picnic baskets that just get palmed off on your grannies here. Instead, we offer a totally bespoke service where you can guide us by price, type or even challenge us to produce something totally different just for you.
We understand that each corporate gifting client is unique, that's why we offer a personalised experience tailored to your specific needs, not a one size fits all.
Let us know the number of gifts required, your budget, and the type of gifts you have in mind, and our dedicated team will take it from there. Once you’re set on the gifts, supply us with the addresses and we will play Santa. Sorted.
We really pride ourselves on producing thoughtful but cool, bespoke gift options that reflect your brand without any added stress. Also, importantly for you, we keep your finance team happy by invoicing directly to you, with client names, breakdown of costs and payment terms all in one place. Sounds like a small thing but in our experience, it really helps make the process run smoothly.
Choose from a carefully curated selection of the coolest natural and organic wines sourced from small UK importers who work closely with independent farmers that actually look after their land and care about the environment.
From bold red wines to crisp white wines and trendy pet nats for good measure, our wines are from all over the world, natural and unfiltered and bloody delicious. No set boxes, price points or types, we can personalise every single recipient's gift, you just guide us and we’ll offer up the wines. Plus your competitors probably will be delivering them Sainsbury’s Prosecco… you’re cooler than that.
Speciality Coffee & Accessories
Maybe you’ are keen to treat your recipients to some speciality coffee sourced from our very favourite UK roasters. We work really hard all year round to find the best independent coffee suppliers who source their coffee beans from all over the world and then get to roasting them right here in the UK. Pinky promise; no stale coffee here (cough cough supermarkets we’re looking at you and your ground coffee shit), we pride ourselves on every single bag being small batch and fresh as.
Want to send more than just a few bags of coffee? No problem, maybe consider adding some brewing equipment as we also offer a wide range of coffee accessories, from stylish brewing equipment to tried and tested coffee travel mugs, ensuring a complete coffee experience gift.
Craft Beers, Spirits & Cocktails
Because it’s Christmas, we can all do better than a 4 pack of Carling or a bottle of Gordons Gin, we deserve it. For those who appreciate craft brewing and distilling, we offer a diverse range of craft beers, artisanal spirits, and expertly crafted cocktails (some even in the cutest mini cans).
Impress your employees or clients with unique and distinctive alcohol that not only celebrates the UK's thriving craft scene but doesn’t look like a last-minute dash to the closest shop.
Something a little more fun? For a foodie? Or a bookworm?
Sadly we can't really ship fresh-fresh food produce however we do have an epic selection of bits from our small independents that are great for bespoke gifts boxes.
From Northern-made pasta, our own house hot sauces, deli & antipasti items, local cookbooks, Noble Rot Magazines to locally produced honey, if there are specific things you want, chances are that we can hunt them down.
Finally, it wouldn’t be a true gift list without choccy getting itself involved. We have worked with local chocolatiers to build a range of handcrafted chocolates that we can even score you some personalise labels for. You send us the brief and we’ll work on it.
