Personalised Wooden Spoon by Auntie Mims

As a child, Michelle Lanstone was affectionately named by those around her as Little Mims. Then she was Big Mims, until eventually she became Auntie Mims. The name was perfect – it fully encompassed everything her business stood for: family.

Michelle works alongside her husband to create unexpectedly personal gifts, “we believe that with a little thought, there’s fun to be found in the ordinary.” She continues “with a little effort, the mundane can make you smile.”

From their workshop near the White Cliffs of Dover, the husband and wife team do just that – make gifts that you just can’t help but smile at.
