Handmade gifts show that you took the time to select something truly special, and table settings make a wonderful gift. Whether you're choosing from a wedding gift registry or planning a surprise, a unique table setting will be remembered as a thoughtful, personal gift that can last a lifetime. Handmade table settings display the hand of the maker in every detail - the curve of wood, the hand-built clay form, the individual variations in glaze. When you shop online for handmade table settings, you’re showing that you value the creative spirit and support small businesses. High quality materials and craftsmanship mean that your bride, friend, or family member will enjoy a lasting gift.
While a complete set of handmade dish ware is an amazing gift, a single place setting or two is a thoughtful way to help someone build a collection. While many people establish their table setting collection through a bridal registry, other occasions can be perfect for gifting handmade table settings as well. Give a place setting every year for Christmas, Hanukah or a birthday, and watch the collection grow. Serving pieces such as handmade bowls and platters are both practical and beautiful.
