As regular readers know, I only agree to reviewing products/services which I know interest me, my family or my readers.
When approached by The Handpicked Collection to check out their gift brochure and website I spent a happy hour checking out their suggested gift ideas – by age, gender, occasion, budget etc
I was genuinely impressed, and when given the opportunity to receive one of their products to
review, I chose the Natural Slate Cheeseboard.
It is a lovely handcrafted piece of slate, from Scotland. It came, with chalk, in an attractive box and would make an ideal present, if I wasn’t keeping it for myself.
Here is how it is proposed we use it.
Lovely it looks too, but to be honest, we don’t often have such a selection of cheeses except on Christmas Day or perhaps one of our very infrequent dinner parties.
However, I knew I could use it much more often …..
as a lovely chalk board!
either to use as a prop for my blog (with my cute young assistant modelling my blog tag line “welcome to my world”)
as part of a home decor display (yes, I have been on Pinterest and in blogland too long to know of the many ways a handwritten chalk board can be used).
Expect to see this chalk board / cheese board featuring again soon on my blog.
Disclaimer – Handpicked Collection provided me with this cheese/chalk board to review, but I promise that all opinions and inspiration as how I might use it are all my one.
If you have a moment, check out their website, and see which item you would select as a gift, for yourself or someone else.They have a clever Gift Finder where you can specify your requirements, and it will produce a short list of suggestions for you.
So how would you use this item – as a cheese board, a chalk board, or something else?
