The Handpicked collection: A Bespoke Wooden Tray

The Handpicked Collection is a boutique online store that sells absolutely gorgeous hand picked gifts that are unusual useful and beautiful. I guarentee many of them will make you go ‘oh…wow!’

I was sent a photo tray to review and it’s gorgeous.

The square Photo Trays have four mounted spaces for photos. They are available in walnut or black lacquer. I chose black. It works just like a photo frame but is also heat resistant. You personalise the trays by adding photos of your choice and any other bits and bobs. I am in the process of doing mine for an adored aunt for Christmas. I will use a photo of her from when she was younger, a photo of the craft she makes, one of her children and one of her adored home  I will slide in a luggage label adress with where she used to live and perhpas a postcard from there too. I may sprinkle some silver stars under the glass too. She loves stars. I can’t show you this yet as she may see it and guess its for her but I will after Christnmas.

It’s so lovely that it can be such a unique and persoanl gift and such high quality and useful too.

Gorgeous. This retails at £29.95

I found lots of fantastic gift ideas on their website

Look at this for a sweet little gift for a neighbour, teacher or to pop into a friends stocking Grow your own four leaf clover  (just 2,37)

and I love this too…The Explorer Kit for keeping kids outside and away for electrical items….Inside this gorgeous retro tin, there is a vintage-style torch, magnifying glass, compass, string with knot-guide and notebook and pencil.   £14.95  Wondeful. Hours of pleasure.


Do checkout the Handpicked Collection it is full of treasures.

    I LOVE that – I might get one for my dad as I’m always short on ideas for him and that’s something really different. Thanks very much x x
