Historic Gift- About us

Our Story

Historic Gift began as a passion project in 2014 when husband and wife team James and Julie Bramley opened a stall at the famous Stratford-upon-Avon Christmas market. Their bespoke surname histories and family coat of arms designs were an instant hit with customers looking to celebrate their heritage.

Spurred on by this early success, James and Julie traveled to Christmas markets across the UK over the next few years, including Yorkshire, Malvern, Bridgnorth, Newcastle, Nottingham, Hyde Park Winter Wonderland and The Highland Show. Their unique and meaningful gifts brought joy to thousands.
