My name is Louise (Lou for short) and I am the founder of Louchee Boutique, a place where you will find inspirational and heartfelt, handmade personalised gifts. Louchee Boutique was born out of my creative love for pretty ways to display beautiful memories.
I started by making bespoke items for family and friends and from there my hobby grew into a little business. My story began with personalisation and that is where I continue today.
Those who know me, know I’m a sentimental person. When purchasing a gift for someone I care about, I like to put the sentimental thought into it. We buy gifts to celebrate special occasions, to show we are thinking of someone, that we are here. Although a box of delicious chocolates, fancy bottle of wine or fresh flowers are quick and easy to buy from a local shop, it doesn’t quite make the same statement.
How it all began...
Taking time to find something unique that speaks ‘I Love You’ or ‘I saw this and thought of you’ is what is always unexpected. A forever keepsake will become of your gift, a constant reminder when displayed with pride on a wall or unit within their home of how thoughtful and caring you are.
I spent so much time trying to find the perfect personalised gift that I decided to make my own. What started off as one present soon became two… People then began to approach me with requests to make them something for their friends or family. Hearing how my gifts had moved people emotionally (for the right reasons) encouraged me to do more. I started showcasing my products on Facebook, Instagram attending local craft fares. My social pages grew into a little business and my range of products has grown substantially.
I now make gifts for lovely customers from all over the UK and Europe. Now, here I am, writing all about my journey so far. I update my shop regularly with new designs to ensure a wide variety and choice of products is available. Therefore if you want a gift to impress, that’s not listed in my shop, then please use the contact form to get in touch. I will begin designing something that’s perfect for you. I value your custom and feedback so please let me know how happy you were with your purchase and customer service.
Thank you for visiting Louchee and becoming part of the journey.
