If you’re are looking for a beautiful, yet practical gift these lovely Kiddiwinks placemats from Scarlett Willow would be a great choice. In fact anything from the website would be good as the designs are lovely and slightly unusual (*cough cough* if the girls are reading- remember it’s Mother’s Day coming up – and those personalised map placemats look lovely!)
Probably the first thing to mention is the distinctive scarlet packaging is lovely. Again this means it would make a lovely gift. As soon as the item arrives you have the feeling it is something really special.
The placemat itself is really high quality. I’m always buying placemats as they get ruined so quickly but this one will definitely last. I love that it is bigger than normal. Children tend to make a mess across a wide area and most placemats don’t cover it. It also means you can fit cup and cutlery onto the mat.
The larger size also mean it is brilliant for using at other times than just meal times. It is great for play dough or baking.
I love the design on the mat. It has iconic London landmarks and sights for each number and is great for a bit of number practice. I like the fact it appeals to boys or girls.
The mat costs £21.50 and is therefore a high end product. If you have the money to spend then I think this would be a stylish and functional addition to any table.
