About us

3 Wishes is a family owned and run greeting card and gift retailer with 5 stores located either side of the Hampshire/Dorset border, we are lucky enough to have the beautiful New Forest National Park and Dorset coast and countryside on our doorsteps.

Our first shop opened in 2004 in West Moors, Dorset with as big a range of cards and gifts as we could fit into the small retail space. Over the years we have expanded the business by opening stores in nearby Verwood, Dorset, the market towns of Ringwood and Lymington in Hampshire and Broadstone near Poole in Dorset. All our locations are big enough to keep our shops lovely and busy but small enough to get to know the majority of our customers. That way we can offer the best service possible to suit our customer's individual needs.

The biggest focus of our business has always been to do what we do as well as we can, not to make large profits. This means that alongside our bestsellers we also stock lots of products that may only appeal to a small handful of people, most importantly this approach offers all our customers a greater choice from which to make their selection. We are also very focused on value for money, we always aim to sell all our products at a reasonable price. For this reason we never use misleading promotions, all our price reductions are designed to clear through stock and make room for lovely new products.

This open and honest approach to retailing has worked really well for us, we even have many "regular" customers who live sometimes 100's of miles away. They visit once or twice a year to stock up on their favourite ranges of cards to take home with them.

After focusing on face-to-face retailing for many years we have decided to offer the same great range of products, reasonable prices and service to our customers online. With the current need to social distance it is important to offer our customers an alternative way to shop with us. You will still be able to shop locally in store but for convenience you will also be able to shop online and either click and collect from one of our stores or have your order delivered to you.

Whichever way you choose to shop with us we are here help you with your purchase in any way we can. This can be advice and help with selecting items, transferring stock from other stores, helping you order out of stock products or assisting you with exchanges and refunds.
