Real teas, as gifts for Tea Drinkers, do not, make such good tea gift ideas, as you might think.
Even if you know for a fact , your particular recipients favorite teas, when all considered, real tea as gifts for tea drinkers, is perhaps not as well inspired a thought, as you might think, as far as tea gift ideas go, as chances are, most tea lovers will have quite a stockpile of their favorite brew already.
I realize that living in North America, the land of habitual coffee drinkers, it is perhaps a little challenging to come up with none tea themed gift ideas ,other than actual tea itself which is of course available everywhere in presentation boxes ,gift baskets , attractively wrapped variety packs .But with a little perseverance They are out there, if you are prepared to search a little. Some none tea gift ideas, that I have seen are :-decorative teapots, mugs and cups, with or without saucers, items of tea themed kitchen décor, tea inspired posters or wall art, attractive and colorful tea caddies and canisters, tea themed kitchen clocks, to name just a few, none tea gift ideas.
Who said there was no such thing as sentimental gifts for Tea Drinkers?
Wanting to add to my own tea collectibles, and to be able to give as unique tea gift ideas to fellow tea lovers, I have started a range of sentimental gifts within my Pages from the Heart gift collection inspired by my own love of tea. Just a small collection, of tea motivated sentimental gifts at present, but one that I will certainly be adding to, as I get great pleasure and satisfaction from creating this group of sentimental gifts designs.
One of the best things about creating your own decor items, or having custom pieces like my range of sentimental gifts, that get you all “stirred up” (pun intended sorry) about tea, is that no one else that you know is likely to have anything even close to it.
Not too long ago, I recall being invited to a house warming party, not really knowing ,what would be a good or original gift to buy for a young couple I really didn’t know that well. I eventually decided to create a custom Pages gift book just for them .I borrowed an image from one of Pages sentimental gifts designs and combined it with an Irish blessing poem I had always liked. I don’t’ usually make or gift Pages sentimental gifts to strangers unless commissioned , as it feels too much like blatant advertising on my part .However on this occasion I was so glad that I did .
On opening, their gifts the unfortunate young couple revealed two identical coffee pots and three exactly alike sofa throws. The young couple felt very awkward as they didn’t know quite how to joke off what was happening, and the people who gave the gifts ,were mortified with embarrassment, the lady giver of the third throw actually fled the room rather than witness her gift being revealed.
I’ve often seen and even received duplicate gifts before who hasn’t? That’s, the penalty of the Wal-mart age, in which we live, I’m afraid, but I’ve never seen it occur to quite this extent before, it was a comic real life candid camera event.
A funny and humorous memory now, but at the time not so funny, not even for me, a thought that lives vividly to this day in my mind ,is that although not a big wal-mart fan, but reluctant ,about appearing to advertise Pages sentimental gifts to a group of strangers. I had aimlessly wandered around our local wal mart super store; my attention too, had been grabbed by the sofa throws, as they were about the only thing in the whole store I actually even liked. I had come so close, to being the fourth giver of a throw. I vowed there and then, never to feel awkward about giving my own handcrafted sentimental gifts as gifts myself, ever again.
I am constantly told, how the sentimental inclined gifts that I create , are loved and cherished by all who receive them .Not only appreciated, as the unusual items of room decor that they are, but for the love and feeling that so obviously goes into their creation. Just one of the factors that puts Pages sentimental gifts, as all handmade gifts, far above any store bought, mass produced gift item.
So whether you’re on the hunt for Custom Crafted tea gift ideas or sentimental gifts inspired by other subjects I invite you to place your orders now, as now ,is always the best time to act, when ordering individually handcrafted gifts, as unique additions to your own room decor or as gifts for others. Procrastination often leads to disappointment. Order now. If your new to this site ,I guess you’re wondering what are Pages from the heart Sentimental gifts and what are they all about .Each of pages unique custom made gifts ,start their life as a graphic template mounted onto a real hard backed book that has been rescued from the jaws of the recycling shredders. When complete, after several processes, and about 18 hours of work, the flat graphic becomes a Pages from the Heart gift book. Which are unique, 3D ornamental, handmade sentimental gifts .The first step after a template has been chosen (so far there are around a 100) is for it to be mounted onto a stiffened and lacquered hard backed book.
The next step is to give each gift book its 3D aspect; this is achieved by incorporating elements of three dimensional paper tole, and paper quilling and various other handmade decorations.
