About Us

Victoria Gifts began life as a Tearoom and Giftshop in Port Fairy, Victoria.

After a while it was time for a move, so we packed up our favourite things and headed further along the South West coast to Portland – where we have dropped anchor again.

Our home and business is now a circa 1853 Bed and Breakfast, called Victoria House.
We don’t have a shopfront here in Portland, but all of the treasures on this site have their home here in Portland. When you order, we personally choose the item, check it, wrap it with love and post it ourselves. There is no impersonal drop shipping or warehousing here. If you order a plush toy, we wish it a fond farewell before we place it gently in its wrappings for the journey to the new home.

We love finding and making lovely new things to offer to you, and we only stock things we love ourselves. Our criteria for choosing what we offer is that it must make us smile; and if it doesn’t bring even a little happiness into the world, then what would be the point.

We hope that something that you find here can help you, or someone that you care about, to smile.
