Meet The Team

Head Office

Danielle

Founder / Managing Director

What's the best gift you have even given?
This would have to be the first ever map necklace I made back in 2012. The idea came when I was looking for a present for my friend who was leaving Brighton for a job in London. I had always collected old maps from jumble sales and so I made her a little pendant to remind her of her home. She loved it so much and still wears it today.

New Year is my absolute favourite occasion, it's massively sentimental. I love the feeling of having reached a milestone and looking ahead to the next one!

Christmas! I love Christmas. Not only is it the most exciting part of my job being the first to see all our amazing products, but it is a chance to get all the family together to
 eat, drink and generally be merry!

Jonathan

Product Designer

What is your favourite yearly celebration?
My favourite yearly celebration has to be New Year as it's full of family traditions.  We all gather at my parents, devour an enormous Chinese Takeaway and play games until midnight when we have champagne and watch fireworks.

Lauren

Photographer

What has been your all-time favourite adventure?
Has to be my trip to Havana, Cuba. My three passions are Photography, Dance and the Spanish language, it was an amazing opportunity to share my cultural experiences with local residents and learn a lot from them in return.

Moise

What has been your all-time favourite adventure?
When I was a kid I loved nothing more than exploring the local park with my three best friends. We loved pretending to be our favourite Gladiators from the tv show and finding new hiding places.

Olivia

My all-time favourite adventure was a road trip down the South coast of Brazil over Christmas a few years ago, visiting family, going on boat trips around little islands and drinking fresh coconut water every day.

What is the best gift you've ever given?
I was really excited to give my mum her birthday gift this year which was a mother-daughter champagne day out in London for her birthday.  It was one of the first times we had spent a day out just the two of us since I had moved out for the university, so it felt really special. 

Liv

What is your favourite yearly celebration?
It has to be Christmas! I love everything to do with Christmas; putting up the tree, writing my Christmas cards, drinking mulled wine and making mince pies. It's just all so exciting and I get to wear my elf hat everyday!

Ivana

What is your favourite yearly celebration?
It has to be Christmas, it's the time of the year when everybody gets together. I love the atmosphere, the music, curling up on the sofa watching a classic Christmas film and of course the food and drink!

Melissa

Goods In Assistant

Whats the best given you've ever given?
This would have to be the family DVD that I made for my mum's 50th birthday. I'm a big fan of personalised gifts and I wanted to make something really special which would last a long time. It took me a long time to make, but the response I got from it made it all worth it and it was so much fun to do!

Roisin

My most exciting adventure is probably to South Africa - I did the highest bungee jump in the world (216 metres!!), went cage diving with great white sharks, saw whales in the wild and went on quad bike safari.

Andrew

Pick & Pack Coordinator 

What is your favourite yearly celebration?
I love Christmas because it's so exciting here at Ellie Ellie, it's very busy with the whole team working hard to get all our orders made and sent out to customers in time for the big day. I then get to relax and celebrate Christmas with my family.

Emily

Manufacturing Coach (Maternity Cover)

What has been your all-time favourite adventure?
It has to be when I took a weekend road trip with my dad across the Texas Hill Country. It was like being in a movie staying in cheap motels and eating junk food from gas stations. It was pretty surreal.

Lindsay

Order Fulfillment Assistant 

What is your favourite yearly celebration? 
This would be my birthday! I love to treat myself to a little get away every year for my birthday. This year I visited Budapest with my sister in law, where we went to the zoo, did an escape room and visited the famous thermal baths.
