Nellie Mimosa is a local independent boutique gift shop in Southbourne, Bournemouth.  Run by two local families who compliment the business with strong business backgrounds and a vision to bring the personal touch of a unique independent shop.

Formerly known as The Candle Box, Nellie Mimosa was introduced as brand in 2014 with the shop undergoing a transformation over the past year. A well established gift shop in Southbourne on Sea, Nellie Mimosa sells Giftware, Homeware,  Jewellery, Candles and ladies accessories.

The two families have 6 children between them, all of whom help out with events with the older two working in the shop during the school holidays and the youngest helping in charitable and community events.

With a strong community vibe and ethic, we are pleased to support our schools and our chosen charity is Multiple Sclerosis, inspired by Steven’s mother Georgia. Both directors are members of the Southbourne on Sea Business Association (SOSBA) and the Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce (BCTC) where Heather is an Executive Director.
