Our Story

Meet the Maker Kerry Francis-Watts

Hi, I’m Kerry the owner of Despicably Charming! This story begins way back in 2010 when I wanted to send gifts to long-distance friends across the globe. I wanted them to have a little keepsake of our friendship that would make them smile when they felt down. That was the birth of my Wish Bracelets! I would send each one on a little handmade card with an uplifting message to help spread positivity in their time of need. They were so well received my friends were asking if I could make some for their friends and family and even help them celebrate their special events. Fast forward to 2013 and I had turned these random acts of kindness into a business to help support my family and over the last 7 years expanded the range greatly to include a whole range of personalised gifts which is growing daily.

Many of the items in our shop have a focus on Mental Health or Long Distance Relationships, this is no coincidence. Both are situations I deal with daily and I am passionate about helping and connecting with people who are in the same position. Often it is hard for their friends and family to know what to say, but the gifts I create help to bridge that gap with positive and supportive messages at the heart of every design.

It continues to be a pleasure to help people celebrate, commemorate and connect across the miles!
