I’m one of those people who quite like receiving gifts for the home. I’d rather find a quirky print in my stocking at Christmas, or get an unusual table lamp for my birthday, than a trinket or a bottle of perfume. And don’t even get me on the subject of a full, matching set of champagne glasses! That would be my equivalent of a diamond necklace. And believe it or not all tableware, or kitchenware, come into that category for me. So,just in case you know someone of like mind, or indeed you feel in the mood to treat yourself instead, I’m going to share this little gem with you.
Introducing Silver Mushroom
I don’t work with many companies but when I do, you can be sure it’s because I admire their ethos, that they share my own aesthetics, and that I think you’ll love them too. Silver Mushroom is one of those companies. Founded in 2011 by Rebecca Kane from her Lancashire home, Silver Mushroom is a small family company that provides premium, branded kitchenware. Honestly, her Brands list reads like a ‘A’ list celebrities list, and it’s quite obvious the suppliers and products are chosen with great care.

Rebecca believes (like many) that the kitchen truly is the heart of the home, and as such, deserves special attention when choosing what to put in it. The company ethos? Is all about bringing customers high quality, stand out products, at affordable prices. What’s more, products have to pass the test of practicality, durability, and aesthetic appeal.
The Organic Company
The website is also full of aesthetic appeal. It’s designed with ease in mind so that shoppers can enjoy a quick and painless process from the comfort of their own home. And let’s face it who wants to battle their way down the high street at this time of year? Yes, it’s started already. Shopping in the pj’s with a glass of something festive in hand is so much nicer. So is delivery to the door when buying something bulky or weighty.
But let’s get back to gifts. One of my favourite subjects. Silver Mushroom even has a Gifts page with helpful categories like Coffee and Cocktail Lovers, Home Baker (Bake Off fans!), Home Chef, and even Eco-Warrior. Not to mention the section for Little Ones and Stocking Fillers.

And just in case you think I may have forgotten my own recent post about a more sustainable Christmas. I couldn’t think of a better example of buying less but buying better, than gifting something that is useful and beautiful, that will last for years, and give so much everyday pleasure.
