About Maia Gifts
Welcome to our online store and thank you for visiting! We are an independent, award-winning gift company with a passion for unique gift ideas!
Maia was founded because we love to make people feel special. We understand the importance of giving gifts that are received with excitement and create special memories. We therefore made it our mission to hunt out all the cool, fun and unusual gifts to offer in one lovely website!
'The Best Gifts Are The Ones We Give'
We hope you will enjoy the product selection we've put together. It is hand-selected with a lot of love and care to give the shopper a wide and unique range to choose from. Only the good stuff makes it in and we don't select our products on the strength of a brand. We believe that things should be special in their own right not just because they carry a certain label.
We first began trading in 2009 and have since picked up multiple awards and established ourselves as one of Scotland's leading gift stores.
The founders of the company are Soni & Samantha, two people that share a common passion for the unique and unusual things in life. The pair met while on separate backpacking adventures in India and upon returning to the UK they began the Maia Gifts journey.
Since a young age Samantha has always loved to seek out gifts that really leave an impression on friends and family. She learned early that a thoughtful or sentimental gift is often more valued than those that just carry a big price tag. This experience set her on the way to becoming Maia's expert gift finder!
Soni has always had an eye for design as well as a love of quirky things. He collected a variety of keepsakes and sentimental items from the many places he visited on his round-the-world trips and now enjoys sourcing new and interesting products for our customers.
We hope you will enjoy browsing our website. There are over 2000 amazing products available with new ones arriving every week. Hopefully that will make for an enjoyable gift shopping experience and remember you can always treat yourself to something special!
If you live in Glasgow or just visiting the city then we definitely recommend that you pop by our shop. We have a wider range instore and we're sure you'll enjoy wondering around our little gift haven!
