turning the tide
Welcome to Rory & Ruby and thanks so much for stopping by! We make shopping for unique gifts full of joy - just like our gift hampers, baskets and boxes!
I founded Rory & Ruby after years of working in the creative industries. Having worked with lots of other businesses and brands along the way, I thought it would be fun to start a new adventure focusing on the things that have mattered to me and my family over the past 20 years or so.
Our name was inspired by the Rory & Ruby Adventures, the picture book series that kicked the whole thing off, which grew from the original picture book series I published and ghost wrote back in the day called The Rory Stories. Today, the new books still have pride of place in our gorgeous Snuggle Hamper!
We love what we do and care about quality - the quality of our products and quality of life. Top of our list is making sure everything we offer is sustainable, ethically made and beautifully wrapped. We source our products from tried and trusted artisans, suppliers and manufacturers who share our commitment to the environment and sustainability.
Being based in St Andrews, on the beautiful east coast of Scotland, and spending time at the beach are big inspirations for our ethos. We're proud to be helping to turn the tide on ocean pollution by eliminating single-use plastic throughout our business. All our packaging and finishing touches are recyclable and plastic free - even our tissue paper is acid free!
We're always adding to our collections with lots of gorgeous gift ideas to share and enjoy with family, friends and colleagues. So please keep dropping by and dipping in. And do get in touch if there's anything we can help you with or you have any questions.
