I was super excited to be chosen by Marthese to review one of her beautiful personalised mugs. All I had to do was to choose the picture that I wanted to be printed on the mug……………….. after a little bit of thought I decided on a picture of J feeding a Kangaroo at the Zoo.
J doesn’t drink from a cup, he only ever uses a water bottle so I thought this would make a great first mug for him. I chose to have “lunch time” printed on the mug along with the picture, I thought by making it personal to J, he might be encouraged to use a mug at lunchtime rather than his water bottle.
The mug came beautifully gift wrapped and J loved it when he opened the box, (of course we’ve also had to keep the box and the ribbon because they are special!), he immediately asked if he could use it!
This mug is made of Fine Bone China and the images are not screen printed like you find in most places that offer them…but they are fired in a kiln…which means that they are dishwasher safe..and they do not fade with light or heat. The image printed on our mug is stunning, it’s bright and looks just like the photo I took. (sorry about picture quality, my camera not really up to the job) Not only was J impressed with the mug but so was I, it really is beautiful.
This would be something I would buy for one of J’s Grandparents (he has 4 Nannies and 2 Grandads!), or maybe even for a good friend back in England, the only thing that would worry me about buying one for them is if would arrive in one piece, (England is a long way to send something breakable, without it getting broken). I think it would make a great personalized gift and even comes gift boxed so there’s nothing left for you to do.
Our only problem now is, it’s so nice and special that J has decided that he doesn’t want to use it anymore because he doesn’t want to break it and has placed it on his shelf with his other “special things” :)
Marthese also has various other personalized gifts available here , including some gorgeous baubles which I’m already thinking would make great Christmas gifts for some special people in our lives. Also available are various toys, including a good selections of wooden toys, (some of which I have already purchased). I’m a big fan of wooden toys, J loves them and they seem to last so much longer than some of the plastic toys available today.
