What Shop is this?

Gifts, Cards, Souvenirs & more...

The shop's orange door (now white) next to Dog Leap Stairs in Newcastle upon Tyne opened in July 2014.
Our shop is located just under the majestic rail arch, down Grey Street and Dean Street and just up from the Quayside and Tyne Bridge.
We stock some mint Geordie Gifts, or presents as we prefer to call them, and they aren't all Georide. We're getting more known for the growing collection of truly original greeting cards that 'say it like it is'.
Newcastle Souvenirs upon Tyne Logo
Our Souvenirs upon Tyne Shop is now integrated within our Gift & Card Shop.
Whilst we are called UpSide Down Presents, we wanted to make the web address shorter and snippier, so 61side.co.uk is the online version of 61 Side, Newcastle, NE1 3JE.

What the shop sells...

Gifts, Cards and Souvenirs...

Orange Gift Presents Icon
We carefully select gifts from a range of local, national and international suppliers.

Impulse gifts like little pick ups that will make you or others really have a perky-pick-up, to industry design-led and proper cool keepsakes you just gotta have/want.
Geordie Gifts Links Icon
We stock a range of greeting cards for all occasions, that are truly unique, many hilarious, lots of nice, some naughty.

We don't believe in cards for cards sake, we think greeting cards should really state something, and wow do ours stand out.

We have locally themed Geordie cards, especially those rare cards with MAM on (not Mum or Mom), and lots of funny one-liners that "say it how it is".
Our thoughtful product ranges are centred around affordability, creativity and originality.

For a relatively small souvenir shop (cosy, cute and quirky), our present shop has got a huge range of gifts, cards & souvenirs all in the one-store both in-person and online.
Fine Retail Detail...
We don't just dot our i's, we turn them upside down !... a symbol for our obsessive detail on product quality and the like. Below are just some previews of the items we stock, to get a full picture come into our Newcastle shop or shop online with our new web store whereby 97% of stock is on hand from Tyneside wherever your are worldwide!

Why Visit?

We're not just a shop...

We aren't exactly just about generating transactions. We're all about the experience, the personal touch; from when we sell you quality stuff to give onto someone else, or even yourself! We're always open to have convos about the area, what to see and do, the weather and all in-between. Well behaved dogs are welcome too. So we're open, the shop door isn't just open, lets open our minds ...
then wallets/purses if you want to :)

Present Directions

We are rethinking and reinventing gifts as you know them! We're uniquely placed geographically & creatively.

Gift Gems

Signed local art, quirky gifts both hand-made ourselves and carefully hand-picked for sale. An always refreshing range.

Thoughtful Ideas

New ideas can equal new tangible products, we're a conveyor belt of these kind of goods. We're always open to joint enterprises too, of the good kind!

Quality Keepsakes

Good quality with the right prices to match. Some of our products have even been spotted in Harrods and Selfridges, with us better value of course!
