When Lynne was tasked with updating many of the "Personality" and "Occasion" themed gift baskets in our range, she headed off to the Spring Fair for gift inspiration and was delighted to come across many great new products that could work really well in gift baskets. The only problem she had now was deciding which ones to select!
When we were little I remember mum having a collection of Silver Spoons, and perhaps Lynne thought the same thing when she discovered La De Da Living's vintage, hand stamped cutlery range. When we visited different countries mum would collect a spoon or a family member would bring her one back.
La De Da was started by sisters Rita & Dominique and here's how they describe the company on their website:
"La de da! prides itself on sourcing vintage cutlery from all over the UK in turn offering our customers something original and unique. The talented team then hand stamp each and every letter into the silver plate creating a true one of a kind keepsake from a piece of our history."
As you can see from the picture below, the tea and dessert spoons come in LOTS of lovely designs and Lynne snapped up ones for Milestone Birthdays, Congratulations (engagement, marriage, graduation, retirement) and Thank You. The designs we stock are all listed on our "Create Your Own Gift Basket" site here.
Lynne has also started incorporating them into our pre-designed gift baskets by overhauling the Graduation and Wedding Gift Basket range.
We hope you enjoy this new product, as we think it's a great way for the recipient of the gift basket to have a keepsake for after the rest of the delicious contents have been devoured!
