Not since the three Kings took gold, frankincense and myrrh across the desert for the first Christmas have unique gifts made such a journey as they have now with the voyage of Brighton gift shop Tsena onto the internet.

Even though it is situated in the heart of the alternative North Laines in that most unconventional of cities Brighton, Tsena is a shop that stands out from the crowd for its imaginative gift ideas. Long sought out by visitors to the town the shop’s gifts are now available online at

Local artists for global people

‘One of the unique things about Tsena ,’ said its proprietor Jane Higgins, ‘is that many of our items are hand made by local artists to a very high quality. For people who are looking for a different and unique gift, this means that we can supply items that they won’t be able to find elsewhere.’

Almost £3 billion was spent in the UK in 2005 on christening gifts and birthday presents for godchildren alone and this reflects the current vogue for buying gifts of quality that will last.

Traditionally, christening gifts have always been made of silver, and were intended as a gift that the baby might keep for life, but the trend for giving quality presents that won’t be merely forgotten about in a few months time is spreading to other markets as well and it is a trend that Tsena is set to provide for. As Ms Higgins said, “Many of our gift ideas, particularly for christenings, are real keepsake items which can be treasured as the child grows. Our bespoke gifts are very popular too as a real personalised keepsake gift.”

Just as the nature of the present itself is changing so too are the occasions on which they are given. In the inclusive society in which we live the traditional times of gift giving of christenings, birthdays, weddings and Christmas have been joined by a wide variety of celebrations and Tsena provides for these by offering, in the children’s market alone, personalised christening gifts, naming ceremony presents, birth celebration presents and newborn baby clothes plus a host of other gift ideas. However it is not just the occasions that are changing for gift giving but also the people who they are given to. For example traditionally presents were given by the bride and groom to the best man and the bridesmaids, but just as it is now frequently seen for the bride, instead of leaving the groom to take all of the spotlight, to also make a speech, more frequently gifts are handed out to other members of the wedding party. Ever at the forefront of events Tsena can therefore provide not only unique gifts for the best man but also personalised presents for the other important participants in the day including the father of the groom and the ushers.

Tsena’s first priority is customer satisfaction, offering rapid responses to inquiries, confirmation of orders, and a satisfaction guarantee. The site is easy to navigate, and the gifts are displayed in clear, professionally produced images.

In a changing world where individuality matters Tsena is providing gifts, cards and ideas for the individual to take with them through life.
