As part of our meet the makers series, we’ve been asking some of our rad sellers to showcase their favourite products on hardtofind. The result? An awesome array of gifts and finds to (hopefully) inspire and delight!
First up, is lovely Welsh duo Sean and Gafyn from MijMoj Designs.
Tell us a bit about your business?
Shwmae! We are long-time university pals, Gafyn and Sean and together we own and run MijMoj Design along with a small team of dedicated and skilled craftsmen.
Collectively, we love to design and handcraft a range of beautiful personalised gifts from our studio workshop, based in North Wales and we are really proud to say, that they are now distributed and gifted right across the world with love.
Our passion is developing useful, original, design-led products. We love to work with hardwoods such as oak and walnut which are from sustainable sources and combine them with other materials such as glass and metal to add aesthetic detail and functional appeal.
We take every care to ensure our customers are always totally thrilled with their purchase or gift and love to hear their feedback, so we can continually improve and develop new products.
What are your top three things to shop for online?
Between us we are not massive shoppers, but we always default online for gifts.
There is always something unique and thoughtful just a few clicks away if you know where to look and it’s great that you can buy and send a gift direct to the recipient.
- Wouf travel case 2. Personalised koala couple print 3. Personalised child’s dressing gown 4. Personalised birthday bangle
We love travelling so shopping for holidays is up there too, but that’s something that never happens often enough!
We also shop for tools for the business online to help improve the finish and quality of our products, so quite often get lost in machine and tool websites!
What’s your favourite item in your hardtofind store and why?
We really love our range of handcrafted solid oak watch stands to store from three to five watches.
We love making these, and as one of our original designs as a partnership (a MijMoj Design classic) they have become one of our most sought after product ranges.
We love the honesty and simplicity of their form, the storage functionality and the opportunity it gives the buyer to add thoughtful and meaningful personalised messages to the watch stand for the recipient.
They make great gifts for watch collectors for birthdays, Father’s Day, anniversary and wedding thank you gifts.
What’s your favourite item on hardtofind (not in your store) and why?
There’s nothing like a proper beer shared with friends so we are hoping Nia and Sarah (our wives) will take the hint and get us one of these this Christmas on behalf of our kids.
We had never heard of a ‘beer growler’ before… we love the name and are left wondering if it’s designed to say ‘don’t try and take our beer away!’
