Here at Dotty Fish we know how celebrating special occasions can mean so much and our soft leather baby shoes, children’s slippers, bibs and other accessories all make lovely presents for those special little ones in your life. We have several gift options and can make sending your gifts simple by taking care of gift wrapping for you. Our new video gift message can also be added which makes your parcel that little bit more special and personal.
Gift wrap can be selected at basket, and is available on all products at a cost of £3.49, which will be shown in your Basket and at Checkout. We have a selection of coloured tissue paper with matching ribbon and all items are put inside a white box. A lovely gift card will be put in with your parcel and we will automatically remove any pricing or payment information from the order.
Our gift boxes are limited in size and usually fit a few items. We always take extra care to make sure that your parcel is packaged up beautifully with the coloured tissue paper and ribbon of your choice. If you have selected more items than will fit in one box our team will ensure that your gift is packaged up to look lovely and so it arrives in good condition.
Our shoes and accessories make great gifts for new babies, first birthday’s, christenings and Christmas. They are usually small enough to fit through the letter box and don’t need a signature. All Dotty Fish shoes come packaged in a drawstring organza bag and come delivered in our sustainable packaging. Our Shimmy Shoe range come in a cardboard box and our bibs are wrapped in tissue paper. If you are sending a gift we can remove all pricing information from your order, simply tick the free gift message option at basket.

We know that giving a gift in person is always special but not always possible and so we have a lovely new Video Messaging Service that allows you to record a short video (about 2 minutes) that gets sent with your gift and costs just £1.49. This includes a gift message card as well as your personal video which makes sure your gift is that much more special when it is opened and it couldn’t be simpler to do.
You select the video message option at basket and once your order is complete we will prompt you to record your message. This is can be done on most devices but if you are not ready to record your message there and then we will include the link in with your order confirmation email. Your video message will have a unique code which is written on a lovely You Have a Message card that is included with your parcel. Once they receive there gift they can go and watch your recording and even have the chance to send you a little video back of your lovely gift in action.
You can include a written gift message as well as gift wrap options too at basket or you can simply send the video message. Either way your parcel will be sent out using our lovely sustainable packaging. If you would like to know more about how the video message works or you have questions we have more information below.
