I was looking for a gift for a friend of mine recently and I happened upon the Cath Kidston gift set of four mugs. My friend is a designer and as soon as I saw this set of mugs I knew that they would be perfect for her. She is also very classy with a great sense of style which is exactly what these bone china mugs are too!
A little history
Cath Kidston MBE is a very talented and much loved designer from the UK. Her passion for nostalgic vintage chic combined with bold modern designs stems from happy childhood memories. Each of her design collections pays tribute to enjoyable moments from her childhood, and they offer many of us a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Many of her designs are re-workings of the traditional English country house style and she has become a cult success at home and abroad. Her style fuses nostalgic vintage chic and bold modern designs which work well in a wide range of products, large and small. In 1993, Cath opened her first shop in Notting Hill selling vintage fabrics and old furniture, but it wasn’t long before her empire had grown to almost 140 outlets in the UK alone.
China maker Churchill traces its origins back to 1795 with the opening of its first factory in Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire, England. Due to their many years of experience, Churchill’s craftsmen are an established company with a worldwide reputation for producing quality tableware and gifts, exporting their china products to over 50 countries worldwide.
A gift for stylish ladies!
Of course, this gift set of bone china mugs is not just for women, but I feel that the delicate design and elegant style fits more with a ladies lifestyle than a man’s. It would make a super birthday present or Christmas gift for people that love tea or coffee. In fact, this set of mugs is so pretty that I think it would be a shame to use them… perhaps they could be for display purposes only!
When I first wrote this article, this mug gift set had a price of just £17.99, however as I revisit this page now I see that this Cath Kidston gift set now costs approx. £75 (Latest price: Out of stock)*, however I expect that from time to time, the price will drop as special offers occur. This is a lovely gift for work colleagues or family members, especially aunts, nieces or cousins, or teat yourself – you’re worth it!
