If you’re anything like me you’ve already started thinking about Christmas and the end of another year. I think we’ll all agree that it has been a bit of a crazy year, but on the positive side, it has made us all hopeful and optimistic that next year will be better. This year has really cemented to me what’s important, made me quite humble and really appreciate the little things that make me smile.
One thing that definitely makes me smile has been my family and friends. It has reinforced to me how special and important those memories of togetherness can be. Christmas is one of those moments, a rare time when we can show our appreciation of others through that perfect meal, those well thought out gifts or just that moment of togetherness over a hot cup of tea in front of the fireplace.
Some of my favorite memories are of me and my extended family sitting around the fireplace sharing a cup of tea after a large Christmas meal where all my favorite foods have been on the menu. My grandma would bring out her heirloom china tea set and we would have a cup of tea to relax and help digest our big meal. My nanna, like my whole family, is a huge tea lover and lots of my memories are surrounded by the different sights, smells and aromas of tea brewing.
We often had different types of tea for different occasions and different tea sets for different reasons. The fancy tea for high tea, the everyday tea set and the cute Christmas Tea cup and saucer for the festive season. While thinking about my family, Christmas and the perfect gift I thought I’d mention a few of my favorite tea sets that are on offer at the moment since they really do make great gifts that will be cherished for years to come and help promote some of those memory making moments.
Let’s look at some of the different types of tea gifts and gift sets there are available at present, perfect for tea lovers everywhere.

Things to consider:
There are some things to consider when purchasing any present for anyone.
Firstly ensure you’ve given yourself enough time to order your present and for it to ship and arrive in time, it’s always best to give yourself a week or two more than you think you’ll need as shipping can be delayed.
Make sure the person you’re buying a gift for is not allergic to any of the food in the gift set. The ingredients list will be posted on the links provided or a quick Google search will help you find the list of ingredients in the gift that you’re considering.
We understand that everyone has different budgets so we have supplied you with a range of products that range in price from $10 to $100. If you’re watching your pennies this year there are some great sales on selected items when you shop for the sales.
Different types of Tea Gift Sets available:
There are many different types of tea gift sets available, some have different types of tea, some have only one style of tea, some have tea pots, mugs and cups and some have different styles of tea such as loose leaf or bagged. Which one is best for your present receiver will depend on how they like their tea and whether they’re more traditional or adventurous with their tea preferences.
