British Invasion Brings Unique Gifts to United States

It all started when two British entrepreneurs armed with an impressive range of hand-made products, embarked upon a mission to save craftsmen and women of the UK from extinction. Together, they set a course for a new market--the United States--targeting American collectors who appreciate the finer things in life - just in time for the holiday season!

With only 42 shopping days until Christmas, American consumers want…err ... need to know where they can find the highest level of craftsmanship, artisanship and products that have character, style and a uniqueness not found in typical U.S. retail outlets.

“Our product line offers the highest quality, one-of-a-kind, perfect gift for the person that has everything,” said Peter Witts, founder of Unique British Gifts. “These are special gifts, with the heart and soul of the artisan woven into each piece,” he added. has compiled a diverse inventory that includes handmade barometers and clocks, pewter and lead crystal table décor, ceramic birdhouses, paintings and historic pen sets, including the limited edition 1805 pen commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. The pen has been crafted using the genuine oak timbers and copper from Admiral Nelson's flagship HMS Victory.

“We are excited about the opportunities we see as we reach out to the United States,” said Witts. “We need the media’s help,” he concluded.

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And mild and sweet the words repeat,
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

I thought how as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had roll'd along th' unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bow'd my head:
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong, and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."Keep it up Nice blog.
