And send it ‘contact free’….

There’s nothing quite as special as receiving an unexpected, and thoughtful, present in the post.  And it seems you lot are a very thoughtful lot indeed! Since the start of lockdown, Uniquely Manchester has had an influx of orders from people wishing to send meaningful gifts to put a smile on the faces of folk that love our incredible city and region. 

There’s no getting away from the fact that it has been, and still is, a difficult time for many people.  Being unable to visit friends and family and desperately missing spending time with the people we care about is really tough.  People everywhere want to show those who matter to them that they are thinking of them.  And those who have loved ones with a penchant for all things Manc, have been turning to Uniquely Manchester to help them send surprise deliveries of pure delight.

Perhaps predictably, we’ve had a significant number of orders for spirits to be sent to, well, keep spirits up!  Uniquely Manchester stocks over 50 different gins and over 20 different rums, as well as a range of gin liqueurs, all originating from the region; so you’re spoilt for choice if you want to send a taste of Manchester.

Did you know that Greater Manchester and Cheshire have a vast array of local distillers working hard to bring us an incredible selection of small batch gins and rums? From Oldham based Defiance Premium Ginto The Salford Rum Company Spiced Rum, to Imaginaria Premium Gin Liqueurs, we really do have a tipple to suit every fancy. And it would be amiss of us not to mention two of our suppliers, Manchester Gin and Didsbury Gin, who really are taking the gin-lovers’ world by storm on a rather big scale.  Didsbury has also just released its amazing Manchester Tart Gin. and we love it!

We do, however, hasten to add that not all our gifts are alcoholic!  Favourite ‘thinking of you’ gifts include the Ceramic Worker Bees, Manchester Bee engraved glassware Manchester Modern Retro Art, and our range of Glass Art and Street Signs.

A lot of people are also choosing to send birthday gifts direct through us too. In the past we’ve had the occasional request to send things direct and we’ve offered to include a personal message.

Since lockdown, and the closure of shops, we’ve seen a marked increase in people wanting us to send the gift to the recipient with a personal birthday message inside – which we are more than happy to do.   Pick of the pressies include Manchester themed Glassware, Homeware, Doodle Maps, Mugs, and Iconic Photography (oh, and obviously alcohol!)

All our gifts are prepared in a safe environment and delivered directly by Uniquely Manchester or via Royal Mail, with all the necessary health precautions in place.  Delivery is contactless, with no signature required.

If you would like to send a gift, please visit - and remember to add your message in the notes.  If you have any questions you can always email us:

Finally, the biggest THANK YOU to everyone who is choosing to support local businesses, and in particular those who have chosen Uniquely Manchester. We, along with our artists, are truly grateful!

PS just a little reminder that Father’s Day is nearly here…
