A Little Bit of Chic is an online gift and homeware store, ran by me, home-styling obsessed Amy. I carefully choose items from UK based suppliers that are sure to provide that special gift, or give your home the finishing touches it so rightfully deserves.
From country esque to shabby chic and modern designs; there’s nothing I cannot and will not stock. If you’ve seen something you like online but can’t quite remember where, I promise I’ll do my absolute best to find it at the best price just for you (and in time for Christmas!).
All of my products come individually gift wrapped, in gorgeous pink recyclable packaging; saving you time if you’re purchasing the product as a gift for someone special. In the run up to Christmas there are several raffles taking place on my Facebook page, with the occasional giveaway too! Talking of Christmas, there is still plenty of gorgeous stock still available, from ceramic gonks to minimally designed t-light holders, something for everyone I’m sure.

We truly value what an integral part of the festive season picking the perfect tree can be. As always we will have a Christmas forest of Trees. These are all locally sourced and grown to be minimum needle drop trees – to save on the hoovering of course. Available from 28th November 2020.
Our Trees can range from 4ft to a whopping 10ft tall, and from the bushiest Nordmann, to the sleekest Fraser Fir. The Nordmann Fir is your stereotypical Christmas Tree; bushy, long needles and branches which are a deep dark green. The Fraser Fir however, are just as stunning but a slimmer build with shorter needles which have a certain silvery sheen to them, these may be more suited to fit into corners as they take up much less space. In addition to this we do supply a range of potted trees. These are ideal for anyone who wants a tree for outside their house, or even to use inside and then plant in the garden once the festive period has reached a close. Upon selecting your tree, our team will net it up for you and help you get it into the car… you’d be surprised the size of trees we’ve managed to get into small cars.
We have a selection of in house made wreaths by expert florist Caroline.
Do visit the shop where we can provide you with a bespoke hamper to please the most discerning of recipient (starting at £20), and of course, you can place your Christmas Food Order with us ready for the big day.
