Initial thoughts: Spaceform make a variety of different glass gifts and sent me three to have a look at: two engraved text tokens, ‘Princess’ and ‘Little Star’, and the ‘Cheeky Monkey’ miniature token. They are like little miniature paperweights with designs and lettering etched in and come in attractive gift boxes.
We liked: These are obviously made of really good quality glass and would make sweet little keep-sake presents, christening gifts or nursery ornaments. I have to admit, I wasn’t overly keen on the designs I was sent, but looking at the website there are hundreds of gorgeous designs to choose from and in lots of different formats – the little key-rings and Christmas decorations I thought were especially lovely and I would be delighted to receive these as gifts (hint hint).
We weren’t keen: These aren’t cheap considering they are so small. However, the price reflects the quality and they’d make a lovely present for a special occasion, rather than being something children will play with every day.
Overall: The three samples I was sent don’t do the collection justice and I would really urge you to have a look at the website to see the full range. Not ideal for younger children but worth a look for stocking fillers for loved ones of all ages, as well as ideas for christenings, birthdays and other special occasions.
