Wooden Heart Birthday Gift

I am regularly asked to make birthday gifts, something a bit special and preferably personalised too of which I have made lots over the years and now I thought it was time I added my most popular one to my shop for all to see (and hopefully buy!!).

Our lovely new Birthday Heart.  


A lovely wooden heart featuring large wooden numbers which can read any age you wish and the heart is personalised with a name and birthday greeting.  This lovely gift comes in one of our gorgeous gift boxes too.

Perfect for male and female birthdays we think this is a great gift for all ages. 

The heart and gift box is only £10 and is available to order directly from www.bynicki.co.uk

Log Slices

Wood is my favourite material to work with, in fact, most of my products are made from or feature wood of some sort or other, so when I saw these gorgeous rustic log slices I couldn't wait to make something pretty with them!. 

I wanted to make something that could be used as a little gift or that you could just have for yourself and a bit of hand-stamping and drawing later I came up with these cute hangers.


Each one measures approximately 7cm but of course that varies as they are made for natural wood!!....  they are then stamped with a cute message and tied with some jute so they can be hung from any available hook or door knob.  They also make really lovely little gifts and are only £2.75 each).


If you would like more information on these or any of our products then I would be delighted for you to visit my website and shop at www.bynicki.co.uk and I hope you'll come across lots of things you love.

It's Time For A Change...

I have been feeling the need for a change within my little business for a while now and whilst I have loved every minute of making and personalising all of your wedding and special occasion gifts over the last 8 years I am afraid that I have a slight problem in that my wrists haven't!. I've had a lot of trouble with my wrists since breaking them when I was young and going from 14 years of typing in my previous job to handwriting anything up to 150 wooden hearts a day for the past 8 years it has really started to take it's toll.  So this left me with a very difficult dilemma, either to close the business down, or restructure it. 

I love my business so much that closing it down simply wasn’t an option but this has given me the perfect opportunity for me to change direction slightly.  

I certainly didn't want to cut out making altogether as I really enjoy it and so whilst I will continue to make some of our most popular items, our range has been cut down greatly.  From now on I will be focusing a little more on my passion for interiors and have been busily sourcing some gorgeous home decorations and gifts from select suppliers around the UK to add to our collection.   This will hopefully help give my wrists a well earned rest from excessive amounts of handwriting as well as being able to offer my lovely customers some new and different goodies.   It also gives me the perfect excuse to shop so it’s a win-win situation!!!

I hope you'll stick with us as we have some fabulous new items and ideas coming along over the next few months as well as a lot of stock and craft items to get rid of so there will be a massive SALE announcement very soon too!!. 

Thanks so much for your time in reading this very long post.

NEW Beach Huts

We're starting to feel a little Spring like at 'By Nicki'.  We've had a few nice sunny days in Cumbria, and a few April showers of course!! but the nights are getting lighter and with that we're starting to think of pretty pastel colours and summer holidays.  With this in mind we have introduced our cute large and small wooden beach huts.  Each one is handmade from solid pine and has it's own handmade paper bunting.  


We also have our extra cute small wooden huts which are sure to cheer up any shelf you put them on.  They also make a great gift idea.


The large huts are £7.00 each and the smaller ones are £5.00 each.  All are available to order on our website at www.bynicki.co.uk

The Living North Christmas Show has now come and gone for another yeart and what an excellent time we had.  Infact by the Sunday we had nearly sold out of everything!.  


Our handmade wooden trees and quirky signs were extremely popular....

I would just like to say a huge thankyou to everyone who came to visit our stand and especially those of you who bought some of our goodies.  We had a wonderful time and I am looking forward to doing it all again next year.
