The story so far...
A one-woman team, hand blending spices and herbs to create beautiful gift boxes. I started blending my own spices in 2011 in my small flat at university using my student grant to source different spices from my local supermarkets. Living in Manchester means we get a broad range of supermarkets which makes it easy to go and explore what kind of spices are out there. My love for spices started from a very young age and I was always very curious about what kind of spices my mum used in the food she cooked. The food was always so fragrant and would make you hungry before you even tasted it.
Exploring different spices became a hobby of mine and I find it exciting each time I discover a new spice that I would add to my blends. I began to mix my own spice blends, which I would store and use to cook once in a while, (after all who cooked at university all the time? Not me..). All I knew is I loved herbs & spices and how they transformed my cooking.
The world has changed as we know it due to the pandemic and in one way or another we will all have changed. I wanted to create something during this time that I would be proud of , so I stretched my monthly pay check and paid for a simple grinder, a side table, crafts, containers, storage ware, a scale, loads of spices and herbs, tasted them and created new blends. With this, I decided to open an online spice shop to turn my dreams into a reality. I LOVE spices and I love anything that's presented as a gift. This, if you hadn't guessed, inspired the name of the shop “The Spice Gift”.
I'm so excited to continue creating new and innovative spice products/blends that make "moving" gifts. I have plenty of ideas bubbling away in the kitchen so watch this space. I’d like to personally invite you to stop by and try one of our spice blends.
Thank you for supporting my business.
For the love of everything spicy.
