With the festive season ending, I decided to treat myself to a little something for making it through unscathed. I enjoyed browsing Oakdene Designs website; it has a wide range of personalised gifts, items for the home, artwork, prints and canvasses to choose from. I also liked the idea of supporting an independent retailer which sources all of its materials from British suppliers.
I plumped for the Smoothie Recipe Coasters and I couldn’t be happier. The item arrived quickly and came in a black gift box, so no wrapping would be needed if they are intended as a gift. The coasters are wooden-backed and have a waterproof gloss finish – I can tell they are a quality item and will last. I love the funky colours and designs – they look fantastic in my new kitchen and add a unique touch.
The recipes on each coaster are simple with easy to follow instructions; they are ideal to make with my young daughter and a good way of getting one or two portions of my five-a-day (which is my New Year’s resolution).
I think these coasters, along with a lot of the other items on the website would make an excellent Mother’s Day gift, I for one will definitely be ordering again!
This set of 6 scratch proof and waterproof glossy coasters with a wooden backing has recipes for kiwi & raspberry, banana, strawberry, pinapple & coconut, mixed berry and mango smoothies. Each coaster measures 9x9cm.
