At Olivia & Smith we search the globe for gifts with a difference. Bringing them home to our gift shop in Hoole, we stock something for everyone to suit all budgets. Our suppliers include Mementos of Home, a beautiful, colourful and vibrant collection of coasters, cushions and cards (shop only) inspired by famous landmarks from around the UK. Soruka Bags, every bag unique made from upcycled real leather. To compliment this we have jewellery from Rodney Holman, one of the leading distributors of highest quality fashion jewellery along with Carrie Elspeth and of course the award-winning Shrieking Violet, jewellery made with real flowers. We have handbags galore, from shoulder bags to classic designs which include designs from David Jones – a gift for every occasion!

About us


Hello! I am so pleased you are visiting our store. We are the Smith’s, a family run business  in the village of Hoole, Chester, on the outskirts of the city. Hoole is a village with real community and fiercely independent spirit, sometimes referred to as ‘Notting Hoole’. The majority of the businesses on the street are independent.

Our team literally scour the globe looking for those gifts that are a little bit different. Gifts we would use in our home with accessories we also want to wear and show off. 

We also make our own in house jewellery, and this be tailored specifically to suit you. All you need to do is ask! Can be made to fit any size too. 

 In addition to this we now offer an engraving service and samples of this are shown in the Olivia & Smith jewellery selection. 

 We are quirky, independent with service at the heart of everything we do. 

Whatever you need just ask! We are a DM, a call or an email away.

We look forward to assisting you!
