A Year of Dates

Go out there and have fun.

The perfect gift that keeps you laughing, trying new things and making memories together. with friends or by yourself. Everyone has busy lives and the dates are here to help you spend quality time doing things you might not have thought of or wanted to suggest.

At A Year of Dates, we are a small business built on a Christmas present from husband to wife; a date jar containing sealed envelopes – the same style glass jar that we use today.

We are on a mission to encourage everyone to date more, spend quality time with friends, make memories with your family – and most of all have fun! Life is fast paced and fitting it all in is tricky, often the best bits are the first things we give up – the adventures, the date nights, the laughter.

All our ideas are sealed in envelopes, so there is a surprise for everyone, and the decision is made for you once you open the card.

A thoughtful gift that has led to an award winning business, and lots of happy couples all over the world.

Lottie’s is a relaxed and spacious boutique, opened in December 2012 with just one aim in mind. To be all about you, the Bride.

Memories, stories and tales that will be relived within your families for years to come and a day that you and your husband will cherish. That’s why we know how important it is that every step along the way is fun, enjoyable and how you imagined it to be.

We work on an appointment basis which enables us to solely focus on you and your friends and family during your time with us. We will listen to your thoughts and ideas, perhaps suggest things you hadn’t considered before, and in the end, help you find the dress you love!

Offering one to one appointments with fabulous service, we can help find the dress of your dreams.

Sofia Ryan Forever Roses

Sofia Ryan is an online floral designer specialising in forever roses, based in Chorley, Lancashire.

My business is named after my twins.

I make bespoke flower arrangements. Made to order services.

The roses are real and have been preserved to last a year or more. They are in luxury hatboxes and also in glass domes. No water or sunshine is needed.

I also emboss on fresh roses lovely messages that customers can choose themselves to be printed on the roses. They usually last about 3-4 weeks in sufficient water.

All of these gifts are carefully handmade by me. I also have hand-poured luxury soy organic candles. Beautiful and just gorgeous.

I hope you will love my roses and the candles as much I do and when I make others happy, it’s an amazing feeling I will always treasure.

Thank you.

The Last Straw UK
The Last Straw UK

The Last Straw with Plastic Alternatives LTD  is a Bolton based company which was set up with the aim of supplying businesses an opportunity to provide customers with an alternative to plastic straws as well as an alternative to paper straws. Whilst we know that paper is better for the environment, people still see them as disposable and they, therefore, they contribute to a business litter footprint.

Currently, there are 5 ‘garbage patches’ polluting the world’s oceans and destroying the delicate ecosystem. Although straws are only a part of the problem, they are a part we feel we can do something about. It’s up to all of us to make the change and do our bit to reduce the incredible amounts of plastic that find its way into the world’s oceans and destroys sea life. Whilst we primarily supply straws we can also provide other products which can be personalised with your business name and logo.
