Giving Pottery Gifts
Pottery makes a beautiful addition to any home and an extremely thoughtful gift. Not only is most pottery quite beautiful from a decorative point of view, there are also literally tons of practical uses for pottery other than simply looking nice sitting on a mantel or decorating a shelf. Pottery is many things to many different people and there are all kinds of wonderful gift ideas that center around pottery if you are willing to take the time to find the perfect piece or have the imagination to create a nice combination of your own. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of housewarming gifts is a pottery bowl full of goodies. Seriously, it is much better than a basket for some and offers just as many alternatives for filling. There are coffee mugs made of pottery that can be filled with coffee snacks and single servings of favorite gourmet coffee beans.
Chocolate dipped coffee spoons are excellent additions to this particular pottery gift as are biscotti or even your favorite muffins to enjoy with a nice cup of coffee. This is a great gift to share with a coffee drinking friend or sibling or to give yourself as a quick pick me up on a dreary day. Other great pottery 'basket' ideas include pasta related themes. There are actually colanders made of pottery that are perfect for draining pasta, washing fruit, and other such activities. You can fill the colander with dried pasta, a favorite sauce, a jar of olives, a nice bottle of gourmet olive oil, and a few favorite Italians seasonings to complete the theme.
This makes a great gift for housewarmings, holidays, and birthdays. If you are really thoughtful, this is also a great gift to give to new parents and newlyweds as it gives them an easy night of cooking. Other great pottery gifts include pasta bowls, mixing bowls (particularly those of varying sizes that stack one inside the other), pie plates, and casserole dishes for baking. Most people appreciate anything that saves time in the kitchen and dishes that are suitable for both baking and serving save time, effort, and clean up, which are equally appreciated when all is said and done. For the people on your gift list with international designs you may want to consider a pottery Sushi set, Sake set, or rice bowls for their collection. These pieces are quite lovely in their own right and will greatly enhance the international dining experience. For those on your list that enjoy Japanese cuisine this makes a very thoughtful and elegant gift. Of course there are pottery pieces that can be made to purchase or found on a whim that include floral depictions, painted tiles, and other wall art that may absolutely be the perfect gift for a certain someone on your gift giving list in the near future. If you have characters in your family then it is quite likely there are a few pottery artists that may just have their number. I have seen some very interesting and lovely pieces that have been made from pottery and hope that you will find many along your travels that appeal to you as well.
Giving the gift of pottery is often sharing something you love with the people you love. There are few gifts in the world that are better. PPPPP 563 .
