The inspiration behind Alexandra’s Angel Gifts began in memory of our beautiful daughter, Alexandra Grace who was stillborn and came into this world peacefully sleeping on 22nd September 2006, the day after my due date. I looked everywhere for a personalised keepsake box, that would be special to us and after not being able to find anything suitable, decided to make my own.It made me realise how incredibly difficult it was to find any kind of suitable keepsake in memory of a precious baby in the UK. At the time, it meant spending hours trawling through new baby websites which was utterly heartbreaking and then having to contact someone who perhaps does not understand the importance of making such special memories. Webites dedicated to gifts in memory of our little ones are few and far between and we understand how important it is to feel safe when searching for something so special.
Alexandra’s Angel Gifts, established in 2008, was the first UK website dedicated to finding gifts especially for precious babies who have passed away. It soon became clear of the overwhelming need for such a special understanding website and thankfully the importance of being able to create memories for our little ones is now much more recognised and accepted.
Over the years we have forged strong working relationships with a number of very talented artists and craftspeople who we work closely with and who’s work you see featured on the website. We are no longer an actual shop and instead provide links directly to the designers we work with.
We very much hope we have created a safe and comforting place to be for bereaved parents, family members and friends also experiencing this devastating loss, whether that be by finding a special gift or idea, inspiration to make something yourself, lighting a candle for your baby, or simply realising you are not alone.
We are so very sorry that you have had reason to visit our website at all, but hope that you find just a small amount of comfort.
