A collection of Gifts

We hope our gift page offers you some inspirational and alternative options.

Finesse is well renowned for their creative floristry. To enable us to offer you an exclusive bespoke gift selection Finesse have teamed up with Tania Eyre formerly of ‘Eyrie Gallery’ who is a widely recognised creative designer. Should you have any thoughts of your own Tania has some very clever ways of turning your own ideas into something individual and spectacular.

The majority of the gifts on this page are hand-made, by June or Tania. They have been created by us so many of them can be made in your own colour themes. Variations are subject to the availability of components, some items will require longer ordering times than others, however we do hold some stock for same day purchases.

June and Tania collectively have over 60 years of experience in floristry, card, craft and gift making, ensuring you only the best in quality and design.
Should you wish to discuss any of your own ideas or you require more information please do not hesitate to contact us.

The China Basket

Formerly of Church Street Mansfield


We have rented a shelf at Finesse, Fascinators, Gift and Craft Studio at Rufford Water Mill. We have a selection of gifts in the studio there which you can buy at clearance prices. For almost 40 years the China Basket has helped its customers with their search for the perfect way to say ‘Thank you’ ‘Happy Birthday’ and even ‘Bon Voyage’. So when that "special gift" is in order, - a wedding or an anniversary, a birthday or a christening, congratulations or commiserations we hope we will be able to supply something to suit the occasion.

After 38 years of trading the shop is now closed, all the stock has been transported to a new warehouse. In future we will be online only but any customer living locally will be welcome to call. Our aim now is to upload our website with all the stock we have available after the closure. The remaining stock will be offered at reduced clearance prices.

Despatch within one working day of receipt of order payment.(Second Class Recorded or economy unless otherwise arranged). Europe and Rest of World. Please ask for postage quotation if not stated.
