Arriving at a gift for someone who appears to have everything could be a very difficult task. In this article, we take a closer look at some unique gifts derived from slate, and provide you with some tips on selecting gifts from Slateplate for that difficult to buy for individual.
It’s at this juncture that some inspiration is needed and a look at something different could turn out to be the answer.
My recommendation would be, take a look at a customised gift derived from slate. What! I hear you gasp, slate doesn’t sound like a perfect gift item.
But wait, don’t throw this suggestion away without taking a critical look at the kind of thing that I have in mind.
Firstly, slate makes a durable and long lasting gift that will look good and last for several years and it comes fashioned into an immense variety of objects, both decorative and practical.
Slate is in vogue at present for functional and decorative tableware and items like cake stands, place mats, cheese boards and coasters from Slateplate. Additionally, slate serving platters with little serving bowls or salt and pepper mills are very common.
If you are on the lookout for something more personal than this, then slate picture frames could be something to consider. These could be engraved with your own message to customise the gift.
If your loved one happens to be a keen gardener plaques for different parts of the garden are available and again could be customised with a message that you want.
If the individual that you are getting the gift for has just moved into a new house, then a welcome plaque or a house name, number plaque could be something you can go for.
The possibilities for customisation are almost limitless and this gives the opportunity to offer a gift that is special.
