Here at LilacDonkey, we wanted to create a collection of rare and unusual gifts, thread and vinyl to make you feel great.  Whether it be a collectable vinyl, aromatherapy starter kit, Zodiac inspired shampoos or some great smelling incense indulge your senses, we have loads of products to lift your mood.

Why the name LilacDonkey? Many many years ago, when our founder was trying to decide on a name for the business, a friend gave the suggestion of putting his favourite colour and his favourite animal together. At the time he had a thing for lilac (don’t ask), and after a fabulous road trip to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, where a pack of beautiful Burros lived (one of them is pictured here), he decided that his favourite animal was a burro.  Lilac and burro just didn’t seem to go together, and as the burro is a very close relative of the humble donkey, the name LilacDonkey was born. We think it has a great ring to it.

The donkey is a symbol of determination and a strong will. They are hugely dedicated animals, and they continue doing what they do best through sheer force of will. Here at LilacDonkey, we follow the same principal; to always keep our customers happy.

Browse and find the perfect gift for yourself or a loved one.  We are always adding new products so keep your eyes peeled for the ultimate find to give you that wow factor.

We’re always looking to improve the shopping experience for our customers, so please don’t hesitate to let us know if there’s anything more we can do to help.
