Friday Feature! Gift Wrapped & Gorgeous!

Happy Friday!!!

Ooooh I've got a GORGEOUS Friday Feature for you today!!!!! If you've not heard of them yet - where have you been hiding? Gift Wrapped and Gorgeous is a haven of all things, you've guessed it, totally gorgeous! As the strap line says "for a gift less ordinary" and it is so true.  Gift Wrapped & Gorgeous have brought together the UK's finest and most talented designer makers and showcase their products in this one fantastic place. I am of course a little biased as I am proud to have a Kate Lewis Design boutique on GWAG where I sell my Wedding Stationery and Greeting Cards!
So if you're still looking for some GORGEOUS Christmas Gifts and  Christmas Cards - look no further!

So I will stop rambling on and let you see the gorgeousness of this amazing company.......

  • About you......who you are, what you like, what you don’t like…. Basically anything you want to share

I’m a married Mum of two beautiful girls and about to become a Grandma for the first time next month which I am very excited about.  I am passionate about design, interiors, soft furnishings, art and textile design which is bizarre as I am absolutely terrible at sewing and painting.  I do have a good eye for an excellent product though which helps in this business.  I love animals and have a menagerie of 4 cats, a Jack Russell & 5 fish.  I would have more but time & husband deny me this pleasure.  I am a real soap and telly addict, love chocolate and having a good natter with friends.  In the past I have been a model, acted and sang in panto and have travelled the world as a BA Air Stewardess.


  • About your company......when, why and how you started, what your company does and why it does it best, where can we find you (email, website, shop, etc)
Gift Wrapped& Gorgeous started because of a situation where I was badly let down by an ex business partner.  We had a wedding design company and she literally walked out on me after only 3 months of trading, leaving me with a shop lease, a full appointment book of brides and a bank overdraft!  I knew I couldn’t manage this business on my own because of child care issues so I decided to close it and start up Gift Wrapped & Gorgeous.  Having caught the business bug I couldn’t give it up entirely!

  • What or who inspires you?
Lots of people and situations inspire me such as soldiers who have been in Alfghanistan & who have lost limbs yet keep smiling & trek miles for charity.  People with great tenacity and compassion inspire me.



  • Top 3 on your wish list right now?
  1. My baby granddaughter being delivered safely
  2. My business being a huge success for everyone concerned
  3. My house being completely re decorated and styled by Linda Barker!



  • Tell us your best/ funniest joke…………go on its Friday!
Oh good grief, I don’t really know any jokes.  Let me see….. Why do only 10% of men make it to heaven?
Because if they all went, it would be hell.


  • What do you have planned for this weekend?

Putting e newsletters together for the following week, going to see a movie with my little girl & my husband & cleaning the house.



  • Finally (thank Chrunchie) what give’s you that ‘Friday-Feeling’?
Hmm, the last time I had a Friday feeling was when I was at college & looking forward to seeing my boyfriend at the weekend doing normal things like going out for a meal or a party.  Now I actually think weekends get in the way and look forward to work on Monday!!


I'd like to say a massive THANK YOU to the gorgeous Amanda who's taken the time to share all of this with us, I know she's an incredibly busy lady and I really appreciate it - so thank you so much Amanda x x

Hope you all have a festive Friday!
Love Kate x
