Betty loves Les Beautiful Upcycled Gifts

How it all began


 Our gifts are created from a preloved product, enhanced, and embellished into something beautiful and unique therefore original. Anniversary boxes, wedding gifts, handmade journals, wreaths, signs and works of art are just some of the luxury products made by founders Tim and Julie Baldwin who named the business Betty Loves Les as a tribute to Julie`s Mum and Dad

The business was founded in 2004 when Julie left a career working with young people in a variety of care situations to focus on her hobby of card making, decoupage and anything vintage. 

 ‘We make beautiful gifts that our clients will cherish, so you could find something special for your special someone.  The products are often made specifically to order in the same way that you personalise birthday cards and cakes.’

‘We are dedicated to contributing to a sustainable future for our planet through reducing consumption and pollution, reusing, recycling

Julie’s husband Tim  joined the business full time when website orders took off and the business continued to expand, “we noticed there was very few craft kits available to young children, so we created some easy kits suitable for children 3years plus and from this Funtastic Kits for Kids was born. Crafts are on the National Curriculum and our kits may help with co-ordination, socialisation, dexterity but above all Fun

All our paints and glues are non-toxic”
