About Jane

Jane Means has always loved adventure and creation and after working in the travel business and working as a florist,  she started her company in 1995 with a small budget and a mind full of creative ideas from the kitchen table.  Her early days were spent making bespoke cards and wedding stationery which became very successful. 
She was commissioned to make a card for the Queen (which later went on display in Buckingham Palace Mews) and was a regular supplier to Harvey Nichols.  By the late 1990's Jane realised her true passion was gift wrapping and after doing her City and Guilds teaching training, decided to start her own gift wrapping courses.
The hobby has now turned in to a full time business with clients travelling worldwide to attend her workshops throughout the UK. Known as the ‘Gift Wrap Guru' her portfolio includes services for Harrods, House of Fraser, Lakeland, Mappin and Webb, Marks & Spencer, American Express, Crabtree and Evelyn, NSPCC and Claridges to name a few.

Based in London and Lincoln, Jane travels nationwide running private courses in ones home and workplace, in addition to her own workshops based around the UK. She is now a popular demonstrator to clubs, galleries and at national charity events, exhibitions and trade events.
