Mimic Gifts started in 2013 as 'pocket money' business progressing from stocking a 'shelf' in a local store, to Gift/Christmas fairs, to a permanent Saturday slot on Leighton Buzzard Market. Then in Summer 2019, a shop in Hockliffe Street came up for rent and after a lot of number-crunching, worrying, hoping... we got the keys and moved in!
Now Mimic Gifts is an eco-friendly, independent retail shop stocking locally handmade Soaps, Bath Bombs, Shower Bombs, Shampoo Bars, Conditioner Bars, Upcycled Candles, Eco Gifts, Plantable seeded Cards, Reusable Cloth Nappies, CSP and a pick’n’mix which is all Vegan & Gluten-free.
Located in the Historic picturesque market town of Leighton Buzzard the shop houses a large refill station for liquids such as Shower Gels, Bubble Bath, Shampoo, Moisturising Lotion, Kaolin Clay Facemasks, Diffuser Oils, Bath Salts and Household cleaners; Washing Up Liquid, Laundry Detergents, Cleaning Vinegar. Bring an empty bottle!
Locals know us for our plastic-free Bath Bombs (in-fact some are completely packaging-free!) starting at £1, and regulars reuse their own containers to get their bath goodies home again.
We are proud that all our products are Vegan, Cruelty-free, SLS-Free, Paraben-Free and we’re happy to advise on ingredients in products if you have allergy concerns.
