Christmas is full of traditions. Christingle services, Carols, decorating the Christmas tree, visits to see Father Christmas to tell him what you’d like (train sets and more train sets please) and leaving mince pies, a small glass of sherry and a carrot for Rudolph by the fireplace on Christmas Eve. These are enduring and lovely traditions and things we wholeheartedly embrace.
Last Christmas the small boy was very excited to discover the empty plate and the half eaten carrot on Christmas morning, so when we were given a lovely personalised Christmas plate by Bluebelle Create for that very purpose, he couldn’t wait to fill it with his homemade mince pies (well he helped to make them).
The cute Rudolph Christmas plate arrived quickly and was really well packaged. The box is labelled with his name on it and the plate was safely wrapped in layers of bubble wrap and tissue paper. We carefully saved this so we can wrap it back up every year after Christmas.
The Christmas plate is hand painted by Bluebelle Create and personalised however you’d like, we chose to have just his name on it, but you can have whatever you want as long as it isn’t too long. The plate says “A gift for Father Christmas & Rudolph… Love from Benjamin xxx” and is 24cm in diameter. There are a few options for what text you’d like on your plate. They’ll even put a personalised message on the back, which is a lovely idea if you’re giving it as a gift.
The plate is hand painted and probably best not put in the dishwasher or microwave, but it’s not too delicate either and will happily be hand washed the old fashioned way. It’s cute, brightly coloured and very festive looking. It would make a lovely keepsake for your child or a pre-christmas gift for someone.
There are lots of designs to choose from and personalisation options. I cannot fault this lovely feative plate, nor the service or delivery. The price is very reasonable too, starting from £14.99 for a smaller plate, though we chose the larger £18.99 option, I think it’s good value for a hand painted personalised plate.
It’s beautifully hand drawn and painted, it’s a real keepsake gift, one which we’ll use year after year and beyond the time when he puts his mince pie and carrot on it on Christmas Eve. So here’s to traditions, I’m sure Father Christmas and Rudolph will appreciate the gesture too.
