Gift Ideas

Secrets from the Shires

Secrets from the Shires provides select and unique local products including Wiltshire Liqueurs, Tilly’s Treat Chocolates and Chalk & Cheese Candles. Owner Julia tells us more: ‘The idea behind it is to build a small portfolio of unique, local businesses from ‘the Shires’ and offer their products in hampers and individually. Quite often the people behind these fabulous, very individual and quirky businesses don’t have the time to get their name out there as they are so busy creating and making.

The newest product from the Secrets from the Shires is the ‘Quiet Moments Book Club,’ a monthly subscription box which was born of the fact that being a mum of three, I never seemed to put myself first and create that ‘quiet moment’ to re-energise. The subscription is paid monthly and a new box is delivered every 3 months. It will include a book, a liqueur, a chocolate, a pack of tealights and a ‘secret’ product made by a local supplier. As a subscriber you will also be invited to join the Quiet Moments Online Book Club on Facebook where you can discuss texts with like-minded readers. Take some time for yourself and join the club.’
