Menkind started in 2001 as a gift shop that offered I’d-really-like-that-for-myself kind of gifts, and that’s still their passion. They aim to offer an all-out fun experience for anyone who shops with them. But, since they began, they've grown a lot, expanded their target audience, and even had tech brand RED5 join their ranks.
Their shops are spread across England, Scotland, and Wales and they also have numerous concessions in places like Hamleys and Selfridges. Also, much like an eccentric relative, they like to pop up at Christmas! They open an additional 30 or so pop-up shops over the Christmas period, making sure that they’re as present as Father Christmas himself.
So what makes Menkind special? Their product range is as extraordinary as an empty motorway on a Monday morning. They offer interesting and exciting products for just about anybody, with gifts ranging from licensed fan merch to Secret Santa stocking stuffers to proper tech.
But, what really sets them apart is that they have a sense of humour. They put a lot of thought into the products they offer, and are fully committed to giving their customers an amazing experience, but they take themselves about as serious as the ‘wash with like colours’ tag on a t-shirt.
So, if you want to give a gift that’s full of fun, head on down to Menkind!
