The countdown has started and with all the panic over Christmas presents, it’s best to start planning early.
Scottish family run The Just Slate Company has launched a cracker collection of Yuletide presents which will suit all differing budgets.
The firm’s ethos to use natural materials means you get something very special to treasure. From cheese boards to gin glasses and dog bottle openers to whisky stones, the easy to use website has a trove of goodies on offer.
Last year we took a look at their exciting range of products made using locally grown wood to create something special for the kitchen, which included chopping and serving boards made with wood from oak and sycamore, cheese paddles, trays, coasters and bottle openers.
Sure to be popular this year though, is their bee inspired gifts, which not only promote a need to protect the environment but prove how lovely the industrious creatures are.
For champagne lovers who want to keep their fizz from going flat, the beautiful gold bee stopper priced at £12 is a must, not only does it look classy, but it does its job well.
To complement the stopper, the firm has hand crafted slate bee coasters (£18) which are all individually made from fine Scottish slate with an impressive image of our winged friends taking centre piece.
The coasters are foamed back to protect food surfaces and finished with a special food safe coating to make sure they are a perfect accompaniment to any occasion.
