Initial thoughts: When we were offered an item from The Handpicked Collection‘s top 25 gifts for Christmas to review it was hard to pick just one. In the end I decided on this Natural Slate Cheeseboard as it seemed unusual but functional.
I liked: It comes in a lovely gift box making this the ideal Christmas present for the foodie in your life. It is different and I think it will be a real talking point at the Christmas dinner table. We don’t do much entertaining but I can think of a lot of other uses than just cheese for the board so that it gets plenty of use.
I didn’t like: I would keep small fingers away from the edges as slate is naturally sharp but that is just a little thing and this is more likely to be used after the children are in bed!
Overall: I think that the Natural Slate Cheeseboard is a great gift. In fact there are so many lovely items on the website that I haven’t been stuck for gift ideas for anyone at all this year. Plus there are lots of things that I would love myself, so I might be pointing others in that direction too.
