No matter what the occasion, choosing a gift for someone can feel difficult. You want to make sure you get something they will love that is within your budget. You also want it to reflect how much you care about them. This can lead to hours of browsing the internet or desperately walking the high street.
Well, no more! We’re here to take some of that stress away from you.
Next time you need a gift for a loved one, look no further than a delightful handmade ceramic gift. And no, we aren’t just talking about pots! There are so many wonderful ceramic products out there that you’re sure to find the perfect gift for your loved ones.
But if you’re not sure where to start, let us inspire you. Here are nine beautiful ceramic gift ideas for you to choose from next time you need the perfect present.
Let’s start with a classic; if you’re going to look at ceramic gifts, then mugs are always a winner. Whether your loved ones are tea drinkers or coffee lovers, you can’t go wrong with beautifully crafted and decorated mugs.
And it doesn’t just have to be one. Why not go the whole hog and get them a beautiful ceramic set?
2. Milk jugs
What pairs well with a ceramic mug? A milk jug to match, of course. This can be the perfect addition to any tea set and is sure to impress their guests every time your loved one has someone pop by for a cuppa and a catch-up.
3. Bowls and plates
Mugs aren’t the only type of crockery you can gift, either. Ceramic plates and bowls will also go down a treat. Whether you opt for a full dining set, an individual item or perhaps even a decorative plate, there are so many special ceramic goods out there that will look wonderful in their kitchen.
4. Bread baking pot
Why not take your kitchen gift-giving to the next level with a ceramic bread baking pot? This gift is ideal for the cooks or bakers in your life and is something unique that they are unlikely to have already - making it the perfect way to show them how much you know and care about them.
5. Indoor planters
Indoor plants have so many wonderful benefits. They bring nature indoors, and they are great for boosting our moods and mental health. So why not treat your loved one, not just to a house plant, but to a beautiful ceramic planter to keep it in as well?
Or alternatively, if you know their house is already overrun with plants, just opt for the planter instead. That way, they can beautifully present their existing greenery.
6. Wax melters and oil burners
Who doesn’t want their home to be warm, welcoming and smell great? This is why wax melters or ceramic burners can be a very special gift - complete with essential oils or wax melts, of course.
And these oils can serve a number of purposes, not just to smell great. They can also help the recipient to sleep, calm anxiety and bring positivity to their home. So think carefully about the oils or melts that you choose for them and make these personal.
7. Utensil holder
Heading back to the kitchen theme, you can help your loved one to organise their space with a unique ceramic utensil holder.
And if their utensils are already in order?
Well, these items have so many more uses than just acting as a holder. They can be used as a vase for flowers or even as a wine cooler when kept in the fridge during the summer.
8. Jewellery dishes and holders
If your loved one is always wearing jewellery and you’re constantly noticing that they’ve left it on the side to wash up or taken it off to do the gardening, consider getting them a ceramic jewellery dish or holder to stop them from losing their favourite jewellery.
These sweet little pieces are not only practical, but they can also be a very beautiful and stylistic addition to their home.
9. Driftwood spoons
Finally, if you want to get them something a little different, consider driftwood spoons. If you’ve not heard of these before, these are small handmade spoons made from clay and wood and usually hand-painted.
These can be wonderful for serving up sugar, salt, spices, sauces or chutneys. Ideal on display or as a fun addition to a dinner party, this can be a quirky little gift for someone who loves to host or spend time in the kitchen.
