If you are looking for delicate looking gifts with a sophisticated and British feel to it then you would love enjoy reading this blog post as we were sent some items from Gift Giving All Wrapped Up from the Flower Fairies range. These items include new bone china tea cups, mugs, decorative plates, ladies’ wash bag, compact mirrors, purses and scarfs. Gift Giving All Wrapped Up has developed two new styles for fans of the fun and frivolous fairies, with the latest products in the range called Jasmine and Elderberry. Here’s a little explanation about both these range.
The style of Jasmine sees a cute cherub with beautiful pink and green wings, sitting on the stem of some foliage, gazing upwards at low-hanging pink flowers. With auburn tones running through the fairy’s hair, the character is surrounded by a background of muted yet warming tones of deep pink, blush and purple.
The Jasmine Fairy
In heat of summer days
With sunshine all ablaze,
Here, here are cool green bowers,
Starry with Jasmine flowers;
Sweet-scented, like a dream
Of Fairyland they seem.
And when the long hot day
At length has worn away,
And twilight deepens, till
The darkness comes—then, still,
The glimmering Jasmine white
Gives fragrance to the Share
On the other side of the colour spectrum, Elderberry sees the whimsical character draped on the branch of a berry tree, gazing down at the fruit, head rested in folded arms. Wearing a purple-toned outfit, the fairy has the same dark berries dressed through her hair, with sweet little wings in a light shade of the purple hues. Like Jasmine, the Elderberry Fairy has auburn tones running through her hair, and the character is surrounded by a background of dark blues and purples, accented by vivid reds.
The Elderberry Fairy
O people, hush!
—For don’t you see
A spotted thrush,
One thrush or two,
Or even three,
In every laden elder-tree?
They pull and lug,
They flap and push,
They peck and tug
To strip the bush;
They have forsaken
Snail and slug;
Unseen I watch them, safe and snug!
Elderberry and Jasmine themed Tea Cup and Saucer
We totally loved the look and feel of both the Elderberry and Jasmine tea cup and saucer. Both the cup rims and the sauce rims were patterned. Made from New Bone China, the wide rimmed tea cups adds a touch of class to our tea-time with the beautiful images of the fairies. The saucer compliments the cup by providing the background palette. The cup measures 9.5cm by 6.5cm and the saucer measurs 14.2cm by 2.3cm. These tea cups were perfect for a brew but they are not suitable for microwave or the dishwasher. They have tiny handles so its also not suitable for those with large fingers. Priced at £19.95 (Currently on discount for £9.95).

We totally love anything that is fairy-ish, whimsical and playful. These designs are perfect for anyone whether you are young or old as all the designs are totally sophisticated yet playful at the same time. Between the two designs, we can’t design on our favourite, having both scarfs for instance, gave us two different look. The new bone china tea cup and saucers as well as the mug, made our afternoon tea time a little more classy. The wash bags were large enough for us to fit in all our toiletry items especially when we travel as usually we tend to take 2 smaller bags so this bag was great. The mirror was the perfect size and we could easily flip it open. The purse was lovely too as it could fit in all our plastic cards and notes easily and was stylish enough to be carried around on its own. The quality of the items are great and we love the finishing touch to it, so we would totally recommend purchasing these items as a gift if not for yourself.
