A Gift For The Tea Lover

SONY DSC

One of the gifts I’m putting together for Christmas this year is for my sister-in-law and I can share that because I’m pretty certain she doesn’t read my blog.  My sister-in-law enjoys tea and when we stayed with her back in June {on our trip from Long Island to Pennsylvania while moving our son}, she had quite a variety to offer me.

This particular label came with the set that I recently ordered from MagicPug and used on wine bottle fabric bags.  I didn’t think it really worked for wine bottles but thought it might make for a nice label for a little gift bag for tea related items.  I used some black and white ticking stripe fabric that I had gotten to use for stockings.

I put it together basically the same way I did the wine bottle bags here, just a little smaller.  I used a black sheer ribbon for the tie.

I called on my fellow Buckeye, Michele from The Nest at Finch Rest, for some suggestions on what to put in my gift bag.  Michele is someone I think of when I think “all things tea”, so I knew she would come up with some good suggestions.

I went to Home Goods and they had quite a large selection of items to choose from {for the coffee lover, too!}.  I got a tin of English teas, Cinnamon Vanilla Dunks, Booklover Chocolate {dark chocolate in a book shaped package}, and Green Tea.

I embellished a small demitasse spoon I picked up at an estate sale with some bling and glitter.  I also added a magnet to the back so she can use it on her refrigerator.  The glitter looks a bit like snow or sugar.  I just added the spoon into the bow I tied.

A nice little tea themed gift that I think she will enjoy!

(I just noticed the spoon slipped out of the bow and is attached to the tea tin inside the bag!  Gotta fix that!}

Super cute gift, Kathy! Tea is my all time favorite. I love loose leaf tea in flavors like ginger peach clove, lavender garden, craigmore english breakfast, rose petal lush, and the list could go on. I bet your sister-in-law will love your present. Anyway, I wanted to let you know that I got my ornament from Celestina Marie Designs. Thank you so much for your great giveaway! Have a lovely day. ~ Jamie

That is so cute! That spoon is beautiful.

I ordered a tea from another blogger off etsy that I love and I try to have that in the afternoon when I feel like something hot but don't want coffee.

I think that's a charming gift for a tea drinker!

That transfer is awesome, you may need to make more of these bags for us non-crafties to purchase. I think I am in love.
