About us


Welcome to our web site.


How did we get our funny name? Pronounced CHRIS , SYL , DEN....


Chrisylden Crafts was established in 1996 when Chris, Sylvia and Denis opened a small gift shop on Mersea Island , which is just off the coast of Britain's oldest recorded town Colchester in Essex.


Whilst we stock a wide selection of  giftware we also specialise in affordable personalised gifts. Most things are possible just ask!

If you looking for a gift to cherish always, you've come to the right place.


We also offer free local delivery please call for details.



We are always happy to help.
