Hi , my name is Louisa. I am the proud owner of Hudson Belle – a fabulous selection of online gifts. HB was borne from my love of giving gifts with meaning and finding ways to connect to those we love and care about. Having worked for the NHS for over 20 years and seen all that life can be, sometimes it’s the little things that matter. A card, a gift, a message or something to make you laugh out loud can all bring brightness to someone’s day which has culminated with one of the best gift shops in Halifax & seller of online gift in the UK.
Our gifts are carefully chosen, with love, humour and kindness, are high quality and unique, and we stay strong to other small businesses and family-run suppliers.
Our beautiful boutique gift shop opened in December 2018 is based in the spectacular Piece Hall in Halifax, West Yorkshire. Built in1779 as a Cloth Hall for trading ‘pieces’ of cloth – hence the spelling, it now stands in ‘splendid isolation’. It is ‘one of Britain’s most outstanding Georgian buildings’.
It is the jewel in the crown of Yorkshire now a stunning combination of historical interest, outstanding boutique shops, artisan eateries and comfortable, welcoming places to enjoy your favourite tipple. It has attracted visitors from all over the world and makes for a wonderful day out, during all seasons for the whole family.
Sid Dickens Memory Blocks
I was first introduced to Sid Dickens Memory Blocks 10 years ago when I was gifted one by my Sister in Law, who is Canadian, from that moment on, I was hooked. Hand made by the Canadian sculptor Sid Dickens these 6×8 inch blocks are truly a thing of beauty.
Each block holds a special meaning on the reverse, reflecting the image that is created on the front.
Handcrafted from a porcelain type plaster poured round a wooden mould, no two blocks look the same and when hung together can create the most stunning installations in your home.
They can be wall-mounted, framed or displayed on tabletop stands whichever you choose. Create a display that matches your personality or a family collection where you each get to choose a piece that means something to you; the possibilities are endless and fluid-like life itself. We are one of only 4 stockists in the UK and the only one in the North and currently hold over 50 of the current collection.
All blocks can be pre-ordered, and we can discuss individual requirements through our consultation process.
