Our Story


Nellie Mimosa is an established business in Southbourne-on-sea and has built up a great reputation for its affordable and unique gifts and home-ware.

Now in its 14th year, the company builds on its previous trading name The Candle Box through the introduction of its own brand to the business called Nellie Mimosa, covering candles, gift-ware and jewellery.

Nellie Mimosa still carries the tradition of being known for its range of home-wares, gift-ware, candles, home fragrances and we are also delighted to support local artists such as Dorset Coast and Country who handcraft cards and Richard Watkin of Watkin Art.

With a keen eye on detail and customer service the staff pride themselves on offering a unique customer experience in store to our valued customer base who deserve great customer service and quality products.
