Personal gift for tea lovers

DIY decorated teacup and dish

Looking for a personalised gift for a tea fanatic? This beautiful presentation box is guaranteed to please! It holds everything they need for a special teatime break: a fabulous mug, fragrant tea, a tea strainer, a pretty candle, tea bags, a small dish for the teabags, plus delicious jam for scones. And, to make the gift even more personal, we think it’s a great idea to decorate the mug and dish by hand. edding porcelain brush pens are ideal for painting your own designs on porcelain and they’re available in a choice of 15 gorgeous, carefully co-ordinated shades. The special ink has a creamy application and produces an even colour result. When you’ve finished designing, leave the ink to dry for a short while and then bake the crockery in the oven. This heat fixes the motifs and actually makes them dishwasher-safe. This is definitely a gift you’ll love to give!
