The Giftbox has been trading in the market town of Ballymena , County Antrim since 1995 and is recognized as one of Northern Ireland's leading Gift and Cookware shops.
The business which was purchased from the then Wellington Gallery, was mainly giftware and tableware, and as we shared the same building with Wellington Gallery we called ourselves Wellington Gifts.
Within a few years due to customer demand we opened a Cookshop on the other side of Ballymena, keeping mainly cookware but adding in everyday tableware and upstairs a mirror showroom. After a number of years we moved both shops into one larger unit on Church Street and rebranded ourselves as The Giftbox, and over the years extended this to where we are today, a giftware showroom, a cookshop at the rear of building and a picture gallery upstairs.
We are a family run business with 2 generations managing the business. The Giftbox is known not only for customer loyalty but also for the loyalty of their staff. Many of the employees have been with the company from when we took it over in 1995. Our staff are well trained in product knowledge and customer service skills and it is our aim for you to have a pleasant shopping experience with us, both online and in our shop.
Our aim is to offer a very personal service in helping you select that perfect gift, whether it be a gift for someone else, or a purchase for yourself.
The Giftbox has become a landmark store in Ballymena due to how it excels in three main areas; personal customer service, the extensive range of high quality products on offer and its ability to change with the times. Customer service is what brings people here and what keeps them coming back, successive generations of customers have shopped here. What sets us apart is that we try to give extra special personal customer service.
Our shop stocks an extensive range of Giftware, Tableware, Crystal, Cookware and a beautiful selection of prints in an expanding Gallery section.
Our online shop gives you a sample of the many products and services we can provide.
We hope you have a pleasant shopping experience with us, both online and in our Shop.

Nicole Abbey reviewed The Giftbox at Wellington Gifts – 5 star 3 January at 09:19 · Excellent customer service that I have never experienced before. Order was placed fairly close to Christmas and Gareth kept me informed of the status of my order. Gareth also advised that he personally took my parcel to drop off point to ensure that it arrive to my address in England in time for Christmas (which it did). Parcel was very well packaged and my parents absolutely love their Belleek lamp.
I am sure I will be shopping with Wellington Gifts again.
Thank you Gareth for helping me as much as you did, keep up the very good work.
Superb customer service, my turntable arrived well packaged and within three days. I'd have no hesitation using your website again.
I have a lot of Little Venice equipment (including the 14" turntable), which is really good quality and this is no exception. It's a brilliant turntable, very stable and a really good size. I purchased this for my daughter in law for Christmas (then hopefully I can get my own back)!! Good price too.
