Return to Sweet Necessi-Teas

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

Christmas is just around the corner and I have a few gift ideas to share. There is something for every taste and budget in my shop!

For the elegant womanElegant Tea Cup Tote

In days gone by, when a woman wanted to have a tea party, she might not have enough teacup and saucer sets for all her guests. As a result, it was not uncommon for a guest to be asked to bring her own teacup and saucer--often carrying her treasure in a beautiful case for protection.
This elegant tea cup tote is a wonderful way to take your favorite tea cup and saucer to your next tea party. Two layers of high loft quilt batting offer protection from breakage. A padded plate liner in coordinating fabrics keeps the cup and saucer separated. Fully lined. Reinforced bottom provides support and further protection. Luscious poly shantung (the look of silk without the care), 4” Venitian lace, pearl braid trim and a hand-crafted ceramic rose button add a touch of romance. A drawstring closes the tote and provides a handle to carry your precious cargo. Holds a 6” saucer and tea cup. (Tea cup and saucer shown for display only and are not included.) An added bonus is a lovely coordinating, lace-trimmed napkin. No tea parties in the near future? It could also be used as a purse! Too sweet! Dimensions: 6 ½”w x 7”h

Directions for use: Insert saucer. Place padded liner on top of saucer. Place tea cup right side up on top of liner. Pull drawstring to close. Enjoy!  Available in 5 colors. Made in the USA.  A Sweet Necessi-Teas original design!


For the young at heart woman: Victorian Dress Tea Cozy
This dome-style tea cozy, designed to look like a Victorian ball gown, is handcrafted from faux silk shantung and trimmed in Venice lace, pearl bead braid, lace appliqués, satin ribbon roses, and bows. The heavily padded cozy is guaranteed to keep your teapot and contents piping hot for up to 2 hours! Fits most 4-6 cup teapots. Hand wash or dry clean. Available in 5 colors. Made in the USA.  A Sweet Necessi-Teas Original Design. (Coordinating Victorian Dress Tea Cup Covers available separately.)

For a dear mother: "Mother" Tea Cup and Saucer

This beautiful fine bone china tea cup and saucer would make a lovely gift for Mother’s Day. The message, “Mothers Are A Rose In
The Garden Of Life”, will let your mother know that she is dear to your heart! The elegant lettering combined with beautiful florals is sure to make each tea cup and saucer a treasured possession. From
the Royal Patrician Dynasty Loving Thoughts collection. The set is beautifully packaged in a satin-lined Royal Patrician Gift Box.

For the feminine woman: Blue and White Teapot Bracelet

A selection of 5 beautiful hand-painted blue and white Chinese porcelain beads in silver teapot settings are attached to a 7 ½” double link sterling silver bracelet to create an unforgettable piece of jewelry. Only 1 available!

For the romantic-at-heart woman: Ivory Rose Chocolate Set

This beautiful set, with its art nouveau handles and beautiful pink and ivory roses, is reminiscent of what was found in the parlour a century past. 10in. Porcelain. Includes one pot and four dainty tea cups and saucers. Simply beautiful! Use for coffee, hot chocolate, or chai tea. Only 1 set available!

For the woman who has everything: Sweet Necessi-Teas Gift Basket

This gift basket was designed for the woman who loves to take her fine bone china tea cup with her wherever she may go. Perhaps she is a member of a tea society that meets weekly in someone’s home. Rather than put the hostess on the spot, each member has agreed to bring their own tea cup set. The willow basket includes a Sweet Necessi-Teas Tea Cup Tote (your choice of color), a Rose Chintz bone china tea cup and saucer (4 styles to choose from), a 2 oz. package of premium loose leaf tea, 2 tins of crème de Pirouline Artisan Rolled Wafers (Dark Chocolate and Chocolate Hazelnut)and a beautiful Heritage Lace doily in the Holly pattern. Price includes filler, shrink wrap and a bow. I will gladly add a gift enclosure card with a personalized message at no additional charge.

For your sweet Mother-in-Law or Special Friend: Victorian Tea Gift Box

This sweet hat box, filled with a few thoughtful necessi-teas, is just the right gift to make a Mother-in-Law or Special Friend feel pampered and special! The Victorian-themed hat box includes the following Necessi-teas: a new porcelain Songbird 20 oz. teapot, a vintage crocheted doily, a tin of gourmet chocolate-dipped tea biscuits, 1 pkg. Mocha Boost gourmet tea cookies, 1 box Davidson’s South African Rooibus Tea, 1 box of Sutton’s of London Peach Tea and a lovely message (see choices below) framed in a reproduction antique mantle-piece picture stand.

Frame: 10”w x 11”h. Hat Box dimensions: 13” x 6 ½” Price includes filler, shrink wrap and a bow. Need to send a gift across the country? I will gladly add a gift enclosure notecard with a personalized message at no additional charge.
Choice of Message: (Please indicate message choice in the additional info. box when you place your order.)

You are the Mother I received
The day I wed your son.
And I just want to thank you, Mom
For all the things you’ve done.
You have given me a gracious man,
With whom I share my life.
You are his lovely Mother,
And I his lucky wife.
You used to pat his little head
And now I hold his hand.
You raised in love a little boy,
And gave to me
A loving man.


Sisters By Heart

We've shared
so much laughter,
and even some tears.
We've a spiritual bond
that grows stronger each year.
We're not sisters by birth,
But we knew from the start...
God put us together to be
"Sisters by Heart."

For the newlywed couple: Victorian Christmas Tea Set for Two

A hodge-podge of 19th c. ephemera marries within a dear collage that only enhances the joyous Christmas tea-taking ritual. Fine porcelain. This sweet set includes a 6-cup teapot (40 oz.) and 2 tea cup and saucers. Gift-boxed!

For a True Blue Friend: Tea Cup Infuser Set—Blue Rose Bouquet

Porcelain tea cup and saucer with infuser and lid. Beautiful blue roses against a white background. Mug holds 10 oz.
