Cards & Gifts for the British Cuppa
For a little while now I’ve been collecting together some greeting card and gift products that are deeply entwined with a number of trends; you’ll spot union jacks, London scenes and Diamond Jubilee themes. The common factor however that brings them all together for today’s post is the great British institution that is tea time. So grab a cuppa, sit back, and have a look at the card and gift goodies; starting with some beautifully illustrated, fine bone china mugs from Sophie Allport. Designs are Diamond Jubilee and London; £8.50 each from the Sophie Allport website.
Next up, why not grab yourself your very own personalised tea set. These cool, contemporary teapots, and cup and saucer sets are from Aston’s of London. Featuring on trend union jacks and bunting; each one can be personalised with two lines of text (before and after the heart motif). Teapot retails at £26, and cup and saucer, £16; both can be seen and purchased at the Aston’s of London website.
Now it’s all very well having tea, but what about the biscuits? Well you could treat yourself or a friend to a tin of beautifully decorated Queen’s Diamond Jubilee biscuits from artisan bakery Biscuit Village. The collection contains 13 vanilla-based, perfectly iced biscuits (bunting, stamps, postcards, and crowns) for £29.99. Order your tin from the Biscuit Village website.
The British tea time theme isn’t restricted to the world of gifts, as our last few images prove. Fresh from Sabah Designs are some beautiful greeting cards with delicate, hand-drawn illustrations in soft, pastel colours. The Georgie Porgie collection has twenty designs celebrating the good old British summer, including these fab cupcake and vintage teacup designs … perfect for a great British tea party!
