It was then when we decided to take matters into our own hands so we visited our first gift exhibition and founded
Wrap a Wish shortly after given the right tools. Wrap a Wish was born on the principle that the presentation is just
as important as the gift itself, and no effort is spared in making what we sell as beautiful, elegant and aesthetically
appealing as possible. A beautifully presented gift shows you really care! So there we were – two full-time mothers
in search of a hobby, ordering our husbands and sons up and down the stairs, carrying crate-loads of stock. Within
a short time, we had transformed the basement into a veritable treasure trove – a real ‘Aladdin’s Cave’, as affectionately
named by our enchanted customers.
Three years later, we found that we were facing too much demand to run our little gift emporium out of the cellar,
and felt the time had come to cease being the best-kept secret of the local housewives. With a small shop to
let just around the corner, our business was no longer just a hobby, we began to move our stock, certain that
nothing would stop us. In May 2007, we moved into our shop on Regents Park Road, opposite College Farm,
and have been operating from there ever since.
