ABOUT BESPOKE + LOCAL
Hi, I’m Alison, the Founder of Bespoke + Local. I’ve had a strong connection with Devon for over 30 years. I created Bespoke + Local to help showcase the region’s exciting and undiscovered artisans, allowing them to reach customers who share their passion for unique crafts. Bespoke + Local creates a luxury gift experience which highlights the best of the region.
Bespoke + Local is designed to give you a truly bespoke and personal gift service that makes thoughtful gifting simple. I carefully curate each gift box to meet your specific needs for any occasion.
Devon has always had a place in my heart, from holidaying here as a child to attending Exeter University and getting married in Devon! I now have two beautiful young boys who will be lucky to enjoy growing up with the beauty of the Devon coastline and the gently rolling hills of the countryside.
With a rich history of craftsmanship, there is a wealth of talented artisans across the county. Bespoke + Local showcases and celebrates these Devon artisans. By choosing a Bespoke + Local gift box, you are directly supporting these individuals and helping to keep artisan craft alive across many local communities in Devon. From the drama of Dartmoor to the craggy coastlines, the art and produce of the region have a unique and strong sense of provenance.
My family and I strive to make choices which help support our local community and protect the environment. I wanted Bespoke + Local to do the same.
The handmade Bespoke + Local gift boxes, bespoke printed fabric wrap and all our print and packaging are sustainable – everything can be recycled, reused or repurposed.
Every year, Bespoke + Local makes donations to local Devon charities to help support local communities and the local environment.
“Bespoke + Local boxes are like no other hamper I have received. Everything has been selected with me in mind. I live in Devon and my family home is central to what I love. Bespoke + Local arranged for an illustration of my home to be commissioned and included in my gift. I adore the artwork and I have sat in my garden to enjoy the amazing local produce that was included in the gift.”
“The Bespoke + Local box was a wonderful thank you gift and really stood out! I’ve had hampers before but they have never been so high end. You don’t expect to get tailored gifts from local artists in these types of boxes – it’s all usually jams and chutneys – so for me it was absolutely perfect and it was like getting a gift box that I would design myself… but as a surprise!! Definitely a service I will look to use myself when the next opportunity to impress comes around.”
“Simply amazing! Alison was extremely helpful and professional, and understood what I wanted better than I did. She went above and beyond to help out. Overall, my experience with Bespoke + Local was outstanding, and I can’t wait for my next purchase.”
“I recently ordered a Bespoke + Local hamper as a gift to my agent and it has gone down an absolute treat! I always think giving personal touches is so important, and Alison went out of her way to do that. When you are gifting to offices with multiple people, it’s really important that everyone has something they like, that feels special. The whole team let me know how much they liked it and how wonderful their office smelt! Thank you so much, Alison, for really going the extra mile. It’s so nice to do good and support local businesses, whilst making others happy – thank you!”
