Cards and gifts for the creative at heart

Home > Explore > Bristol > IOTA

Prints by local artists, quirky accessories, and greetings cards that include your own tree planted in Africa - whether you're shopping for your kooky best friend or that rich aunt who already owns everything, IOTA and their unique selection of gifts are here to help.

The only danger is you're likely to want to keep all your purchases for yourself!

IOTA's black exterior is a deceptive screen: step inside and delve into the colourful array of objects that cover every corner and every shelf.

Owner, Meibh set up the shop more than 20 years ago and since then it's become quite the Gloucester Road institution. Sidle your way round locals picking up that special something for their loved ones as you browse this pocket-sized treasure trove.

One of our regular customers described IOTA as 'a shop where you know there’s a present waiting to happen'. That’s what we’ve tried to create for the past 20 years: a shop that you’re always excited to walk into, whether it’s your first visit or your regular port of call. Meibh O'Connor, Owner
