Dinnerware - Is is suitable as a gift?

Mar 20, 2008
Understated is the concept of giving dinnerware as a gift. Mostly seen as bridal registry or anniversary registry gifts, giving dinnerware as a gift for other occassions is often overlooked. What is the best way to consider buying dinnerware as a gift? Well, options abound: from purchasing custom dinnerware to off-the-shelf options, you can gift just about any look you want to create. start with a basic understanding of the receiver's decor and build from there.

Though there is a vast variety and style of dinnerware available, price unfortunately often is the deciding factor when making the final choice. Often, with just a little more investment, you would be able to get the perfect set of dinnerware that will be appreciated during every meal for years to come. It is important to bring into your world things that you will enjoy using, especially the items you use almost every day. For those that do this with their selection of dinnerware, the experience that is long lasting.

So, the next step is to decide which route to go for the receiver of the dinnerware. Should you go more off-the-shelf or consider a custom approach? Well, if he or she likes the creative look and feel of custom designs and can easily tolerate differences that custom work often entails, this is the best route to go. However, if there is a definite need for a uniform look and feel. then look to more standard designs and patterns that are available.

Next, determine the most suitable pieces for the dinnerware set. From charger plate to dinner plate to cup and saucer, it is important to determine which pieces will get used and which will simply look great but never get much use at all. Once you have the decisions determined, then it is time to get started.

When considering the occasion for the dinnerware gift, it is often best to check whether there is an active registry for the items. This not only helps the brides and receivers to be in the best decorating realm of their style, it also helps the supplier to assure the right pieces have all been purchased by the guests. Never think you know more than the registry and stay within that style, this is always the best course of action.
