Why Give Polish Pottery as a Gift?

They’re Beautiful

Let’s be honest--the first thing you’re likely to notice about any of the items you’ll find on our website is that they’re incredibly beautiful. Each and every design is captivating and you’re sure to find something to love. Whether it’s a teapot, bowl, round baker, jar, or spoon, each piece is made with care and attention to detail that’s simply unmatched. What makes them so beautiful, you ask? Well, it’s because...

They’re Handmade

Each piece of handmade Polish pottery is made by hand from clay that’s mined specifically for the purpose of making stoneware. The clay is fired, then stamped by hand and given to local artisans to be painted. Designs are made from sea sponges that are cut for their specific purpose by the artists. When this process is complete, the piece is glazed, then re-fired. The amount of effort that goes into each piece is astounding and their appeal is a testament to the fact that people still appreciate when things are done the old fashioned way.

They Stand the Test of Time

Sure, things that are mass produced in a factory can be cute or charming or even durable. Those things have their place, to be sure, but the truth of the matter is that handmade Polish pottery is unique. No two pieces are exactly the same and that’s part of what makes them so special. These are items that you’ll be handing down to your kids someday. They’ll hand them down to their kids who will hand them down to their kids. The beautiful Polish dinner plates you purchased are likely to become a family heirloom. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Looking for Housewarming Gifts? Cute Kitchen Utensils Are the Answer

Wondering what to get for your friends who just purchased their first house? Polish dinnerware may not be the obvious answer, but we believe it is absolutely perfect nonetheless. You may not be convinced just yet, but we’d be willing to bet that by the end of today’s post, you’ll be considering the idea.

After all, the traditional gifts will soon be forgotten. The bottle of wine will be gone in a few days and the personalized door mat will wear out after a season or two in the snow. A Polish pottery set, on the other hand, will be around for many years to come. Still on the fence? That’s okay. Keep reading to learn more about what makes our cute kitchen utensils the perfect way to welcome your friends or family members to their new home.

Why Choose Polish Dinnerware?

They’ll Use It Every Day

As we mentioned above, choosing to purchase Polish pottery for a housewarming gift means that the recipient will get several years of use out of your gift. The same can’t be said for a bouquet of flowers even though that’s also a thoughtful gift. Providing your friend with something like this 12 oz. Tea Infuser Mug means that when they come home at the end of a long day at work, they’ll relax with a cup of tea and be thankful that they have such thoughtful friends in their lives.

It is Completely Unique

One of the best things about the Polish pottery you’ll find on our website is that each piece is unique. Handcrafted and decorated by skilled artisans, this isn’t the same as what you’d buy at the nearest big box store. Instead, you can be pretty certain that your friends won’t have the same items that everyone else has--unless, of course, all of your friends also love Polish dinnerware, that is!

They’ll Think of You Every Time They Use It

This is perhaps the best benefit of getting someone something like a piece of Polish bakeware. Not only will they think of you each time they use it, but you will be doubly thankful you purchased it for them when they bake using the kitchenware you purchased and decide to invite you over for dinner. That sounds like a win/win situation to us!
