About Us

A Place You Will Always Find Something Unique! 

Here at Maia we love all things unique, quirky and out of the ordinary! We are an independent Gift Shop and Online Store that specialises in Unique Gift Ideas for All Occasions! 

Maia was set up by Samantha & Soni, two people that have a passion for fun, adventure and travel. After returning from a backpacking trip in India in April 2009, they decided that they would depart from their respective careers and start a business that made them and hopefully others happy! Maia Gifts was what came out of that inspired move!  

Only Lovely Things Make it to Maia!  

Each and every item is hand picked by Samantha, with the occasional help from Soni and the rest of the team. So nothing makes it in unless it measures up! We can say for sure that our collection of gifts is one that we truly love ourselves!  

Our aim was to create a gift store that provided an alternative to what you would typically find on the high street, so that no matter the occasion you could rely on us to come up with something that would delight and impress in equal measures! On offer is an exciting variety of Gifts for HimGifts for Her and Gifts for Babies & Kids.

We believe that our extensive range of products will always throw up surprises and make it much easier for you when looking for that special gift for friends and family. From beautiful jewellery to vintage home accessories, fun novelty gifts and a whole lot more in between you will never be stuck for gift ideas again! We really hope you will enjoy looking at the special collection of unique, unusual and sometimes rather cheeky products that we have put together.


Here at Maia Gifts we were absolutely delighted to be crowned: 

Specialist Independent Retailer of the Year - Scottish Independent Retail Awards 2012.  

The award is presented in recognition of our dedication in providing an exceptional level of customer service with a range of products that marks us out as specialists in the Gift Industry! It is really great to know that all the hard work and effort has been appreciated by those who matter most.... you the customers! Getting such wonderful feedback and recognition from all our lovely customers and to realise we are doing the right things has inspired us to get even better and make sure we stay at the top of our game!
