Throw in some cashback and it becomes a no-brainer…
Back in the 2000s, Not On The High Street founders Sophie Cornish and Holly Tucker got around a small kitchen table and came up with a big idea. They decided to bring together the most unique, stylish and never-before-seen products they could find – literally, the stuff you can't find on the high street – and sell them in one handy place. As keen independent shoppers themselves, they were frustrated at how hard it was to find products from small businesses online, and wanted to find a way to give customers more choice by connecting them with under-represented indie producers and designers.
The good news is that it worked. Not On The High Street is now home to more than 5,000 of the UK’s best small creative businesses (and counting). It sells thoughtful gifts, original homeware and more. From garden ornaments, artisan food, cushions and clothes to lingerie, earrings and experience days, Not On The High Street has a huge range of beautifully made unique products, many of which can be personalised.
The Danish word ‘hygge’ might be a relatively new arrival on these shores, but we've always loved doing the thing it refers to: making our living spaces cosy, charming and special. At Not On The High Street, you'll discover quirky wall art by new artists, unusual photo frames for your own best-loved snaps, and cushions and ornaments that'll add splashes of colour and originality to your living room. It’s the little touches that make a house a home, and notonthehighstreet.com is big on them – from home décor and atmospheric lighting right down to that cute retro mug in your kitchen.
There’s no occasion more special than the arrival of a new baby. And while most retailers have sections for babies and children, Not On The High Street’s focus on unique products makes shopping for those little bundles of joy that much more satisfying.

Once baby arrives, choose and personalise a huge range of new baby gifts, or find a special keepsake for naming ceremonies and christenings. And as that precious little one gets progressively bigger, you can still turn to Not On The High Street for first birthday baby gifts, and toys, games and clothes for the toddler years.

So, next time you go to buy that perfect gift from notonthehighstreet, be sure to head to Quidco first to cut the cost (we won’t tell on you).
