Our Story

At Marvling Bros Ltd we produce inspirational gift experiences at affordable prices.

In 2010 a school competition was held to see how much children could fit into a matchbox. Hayley’s son was not enthused by the school competition, but Hayley entered for him and came up with all sorts of objects that not only fitted in the matchbox, but fulfilled a concept too, for example a grain of rice and a coriander seed which she labelled ‘curry takeaway’ and a picture of the Mona Lisa and Van Gogh’s Sunflowers- ‘an art gallery’. She did not win the competition but Emma loved the ideas.

Two years later, Emma, inspired by the matchboxes, thought the concept could be the basis for a business and for nine months she and Hayley developed a company dedicated to innovative token gifts. In July 2013 they launched an initial range of 12 boxes and had an instant hit with Hot Stuff In A Matchbox. 

Since then our company and range continues to grow. Our bite-sized gifts are thoughtfully designed, cleverly packaged and made to be as much a joy to give as they are to receive. Whether it be the chance to sample the hottest chilli powders in the world or power a clock using a couple of potatoes, we create gift experiences that are surprising, informative and fun.

A celebration of Britain and Britishness all our products are designed and packed in the UK, and where possible we work with small independent businesses to create our range.
