Now 25 years old, the Heart of the Valley gift shop has seen a lot of change and has experienced much. We’ve seen fads like the Beanie Babies come and go and the advent of “Big-Box” competition moving into the market but, we’ve never seen a diminished interest in unique, personally chosen gifts that make a statement to someone special.


We offer personalized service, free gift wrapping and attention to detail completse the offering and makes Heart of the Valley a must-see if you have some-one difficult to buy for.

Opened originally as The Dunrobin Gift Merchant, the shop has focused on unique gifts with intrinsic value and upon local artisan works whenever possible.

Heart of the Valley Gift has always been and is a community focused business. Dedicated, long-serving staff  are  from the community, and many local artisans help stock the store.

Lost completely to fire in the summer of 2008, Heart of the Valley Gifts was re-built (with the help of the community) in a lovely and unique structure known as a Yurt.

Still focused on the community, Heart of the Valley Gifts strives to offer unique gifts of value to the discerning buyer.
