From the makers and craftsmen across Europe.
Great gifts don't have to be expensive. It is more about the gesture and thoughtfulness.
So here is the deal. When you think of a present, and suggestions bellow thinks about what story will you tell him or her about it. Not how or where he or she will use it, and not about how much it costs. Just whether the story would be interesting to them or not.
There are just so many of the artisans out there. Hence I tend to go for more unusual looking gifts within a certain category. So this time, when considering the budget, I went with wallets, notebooks (always been a hit with women), key wallets, pens and bathroom accessories.
These espresso cups are hand made on the potters wheel from white clay. I like the unique design and variations. It would be nice to buy a set of 2 or 4.
On the opposite side of the spectrum we have the finest bone china option. Showcasing patterns from the 19th century, it is as luxury cup as it can be.
Tradition meets 21st century. Hand crafted wooden coffee scoop personalised using laser. Great for funny hidden messages or a simple 'thank you'.
Eoghan Leadbetter, an Irish woodturner, makes these beautiful coffee scoops from wind fallen tress. Choose your look from variety of wood types used.
Yep, you might as well push it that far. It is a bit of a funny gift idea, but some people would really appreciate it. Lots of good reviews from buyers.
