Prowling the high streets for travel, festival or even home essentials? There’s a store that’s got you covered, Tiger! The Danish outlet is roaring success having expanded to over 400 stores since opening in Copenhagen 20 years ago.
I was invited to explore my local Tiger store in Cardiff and gather some of my favourite, must-have products. If you’ve yet to visit or want some shopping inspiration, check out these handy things I picked up…
Tiger Stores sells their products in £1 dominions, and most things are priced VERY reasonably at around £1-3. The simple pricing, store layout and welcoming staff make it quite an enjoyable and easy shopping experience.
I also like that the stock is regularly refreshed and updated, meaning there’s always a reason to come back and explore again.
This is not a travel must-have, but it’s definitely a tea time essential. The writing on the biscuit barrel does, however, provide fun travel facts about Denmark, and recommends dunking them in cold milk – yum!
The container is a handy size to re-use and is generously loaded with sweet shortbread.
Tiger stores offers really quirky, useful storage solutions for jewellery, glasses, lunch and more. When meandering around the store I always come across things I never realised I wanted/needed!
There’s a section dedicated to travel with luggage tags, locks, water bottles, neck pillows, eye masks – you name it! It’s ideal for any last-minute essentials before jetting off.
Tempting Treats and Teas
My sweet tooth couldn’t resist all the bags of sweets and fudge, perfect for any long road trips.
For the health conscious they’ve got an impressive range of herbs and spices to season your meals, as well as herbal teas.
Tiger’s impressive stationary range is really funky – from oversized pencils and pens to stamp sets and haberdashery. I’m naturally drawn to they’re photography/film themed products and loved their suitcase drawing pad (above).
Whether you’re festival-going or home redecorating, there’s products here aimed at almost every type of scenario and lifestyle.
The store layout also acts like a one-way system guiding you through all the handy bits-and-bobs they have on offer.
If you’ve not been, think of it like a small scale IKEA on the high-street. For more information, check out Tiger Stores website by clicking here.

Thanks to Tiger Stores for letting me have free reign of the shop. Opinions are my own.
