Hyde + Seek
Muddy says: Light, bright and oh so pretty! This gorgeous, multi-award winning gift shop in the centre of Exeter absolutely nails affordable gifts for every species of the human race. We’ve a lot of love for Hyde + Seek (can’t say my bank balance feels the same, though…)
Gift shops can be tricky, can’t they? It’s not easy staying on the right side of affordable, fun and fresh, without straying into Tackyville. I’m often wary of stepping inside them, for fear of realising it’s not for me and then wondering how long is polite before I can leave again (just me?). Which is why Hyde + Seek is a total breath of fresh air, beckoning you in from the street with its ‘come to me’ eyes. In fact, you’ll find it hard to leave this one.
Seriously, if you’re looking to stock up on a gift or two, some pretty stationery, or a few pieces to add a pop of colour to the home, I’m fairly confident that you’ll come up trumps here – I’d bet money on it. Curated with the words ‘quirky’, ‘fun’ and ‘functional’ in mind, it’s a total pleasure losing track of time browsing.
And may I add that the welcome is as sunny as the store itself? We’re loving your work, team Hyde + Seek
