Portmeirion has always held a special place in my heart. It’s an Italian village in North Wales where I visited as a child and again 5 years ago with my other half when we decided to climb nearby Snowdon a few months after meeting!
Portmeirion is also famous for the crockery it produces, which I love. It reminds me of my childhood home, where the Portmeirion dinner set comes out at special occasions like Christmas. If me and the other half ever get married, a Portmeirion dinner set would be on the wedding list, until then I have one of their vases to keep me happy!
First impressions were good – the sets are packaged in beautiful, strong keepsake boxes….
The characters and colours all look fantastic and ready to be eaten on!
I love them, toddler W loves them and I’m sure baby S will love them too. I think they make the perfect keepsake gifts for newborns/toddlers/children. The colours and images used totally appeal to children but their design and quality will appeal to grown-ups to, even if you haven’t come across Portmeirion before.
Now the only problem I have is… When will W be old enough to move from using his plastic Peppa pig crockery to these beautiful sets? And should they only kept for special occasions?! I look forward to finding out!
These sets are available directly from the Portmeirion website – the Portmeirion Peppa pig set is £22 and the Portmeirion The Very Hungry little caterpillar set is £27 – both great value for such high quality sets.
Disclosure: I was sent both sets in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own 🙂
