About Harriet & Rose
Harriet and Rose is a unique and independent online shopping service based in Jersey, Channel Islands, making thoughtful gifting in Jersey simple.
Offering a specialist gift reminder and finder service alongside our online shop, Harriet and Rose is here to take all the hassle out of finding an original present while living on an island where fog, customs and courier companies sometimes conspire to make it hard to buy something original… especially if you (and we’re not saying you do) leave it to the last minute.
Jersey is an island bursting with talented creative businesses, and we work closely with them to ensure that we are offering the best our island has on our website. We also stock selected pieces from the UK and further afield. If we can source it in Jersey we will, but if we can’t we’ll get it here for you. What you can be assured of, is that we will not import goods if we can source them here. It’s important to support small, local businesses, and we’re proud to be part of such a brilliant community.
By shopping in small quantities (with small makers), Harriet and Rose guarantee our stock is always changing with weekly updates that ensure you'll always be able to find a new and original gift you've not given before. Simple right?
We are passionate about sourcing products responsibly, and many are fair trade or recycled. All gift wrap, cards and packaging is also responsibly sourced and sustainable (as well as recyclable), and should you opt for our gift-wrapping service, there won't be a scrap of sellotape used as we opt for fully recyclable tape (we tried to go without it altogether, but that just ended in a mess).
Harriet sold her bridal accessories business shortly after relocating to Jersey in 2016. Having run the online business for five years she not only understands the importance of impeccable customer service and an easy online shopping experience, she has a genuine passion for retail and sourcing unique and original products (as well as creating a few too).
Spotting a gap in the market for an online boutique specialising in original and bespoke gifts delivering only in island, in 2018 she set about sourcing products and founded Harriet and Rose - the gift finders, a business founded in Jersey, for Jersey.
With her wealth of experience as a designer and maker alongside her business knowledge, she's passionate about bringing a different shopping experience to Jersey. With all the upside of the high street (including an in-town collection point), along with a website that can be shopped from 24/7, Harriet chooses every single item that is on the site herself, and uploads them too, so that you have all the information that you need to shop confidently.
She hates spiders almost as much as she dislikes having her photograph taken and on occasion she has a statement fringe cut which she immediately regrets and spends the next two years growing out. From May onwards she can be found at St Ouen most Sundays with her daughters and husband. She's not afraid to admit she's a fair-weather-beach-goer.
She cares about supporting small, creative businesses, and offering a curated product range that you can shop from the comfort of your home or desk taking away those last minute panic buys.
Rose is not an actual person. She’s just the idea of the other half of the Harriet and Rose that will launch in July/August 2019. Essentially, she’s that really useful friend who prompts you to remember birthdays and anniversaries (except Rose even goes so far as to handpick, source, wrap and deliver the present for you or to you). She’s sort of better than a friend actually, because she does it all for you and won’t harp on about how brilliant she is or demand wine as a thank you gift.
Using an automated service, ‘Rose’ will remind you via text and email of a forthcoming birthday or anniversary, and you can just let us know your budget. With an emphasis on considerate, rather than luxury, our gift-finding service starts from just £25. From bespoke personalised prints, to thoughtful food platters for a new parent, ‘Rose’ sorts everything out for you via our network of creative business contacts and gets it through customs (when needed), delivering it complete with a suitable card for you to sign. You of course get all the credit. She’s good like that.
Harriet and Rose also source one-off gifts for a baptism, wedding or any other occasion. Whilst we carry a stock of gifts, the more notice that you can give us, the happier we’ll be that we’re going to get you the perfect present for your occasion.
