Thank you so much for stopping by our little website! My name is Linzi, and I am the founder of Just A Little Something.
Just a Little Something has been built and expanded on my absolute love and obsession for the little things; small but hugely meaningful gifts designed to make people SMILE!
Back at the start of 2018, I was on maternity leave, and just a couple of weeks away from returning to my job, which I absolutely loved, but it didn’t make my heart pound! I was so excited to get back to work, after 9 months spent at home with my gorgeous little girl but I was super nervous about leaving her, and juggling work alongside being a mum. We then received the news that the company I worked for had unfortunately fell into administration, and along with around 300 of my colleagues, I had been made redundant and had no job to return to. It was such a huge mix of emotions, and whilst I was heartbroken, there was also a huge element of relief that I wouldn’t be leaving my little Ayla just yet.
I had always been a fan of handmade gifts, often spending hours making something you could easily buy in a shop for not very much. But it was the thought and effort involved in gifting that I loved so much. So it was decided, with the encouragement from my ever supportive and wonderful husband, that I would try and turn my passion into a little business to be able to run from home, whilst being able to stay with Ayla.
Within a couple of hours of our first item being listed on ebay – the kerching came and we had made our first sale! I danced around the living room like an idiot – and it has snowballed from there. Within 3 months, we had fully outgrown working from home – and the house had been totally taken over, so we signed our first commercial lease, on a small little shared unit. Fast-forward another 9 months and we were quickly outgrowing that unit also, so we moved into our new lovely offices – complete with playroom and bouncy castle for Ayla (the real boss.) We are now growing our lovely little team – and I could not be more grateful for my amazing Just A Little Something Family.
We absolutely love what we do, and we honestly have the best customers! We believe you shouldn’t have to spend a lot to be able to make somebody smile and let them know you are thinking of them, so whether that’s a little wish bracelet, or a bespoke gift box filled with goodies, we have options for every budget and occasion, and we hope you enjoy browsing and choosing your gifts and much as we love getting them all made up for you!
Lots of Love xxx
