It is sometimes very difficult to find a unique and appropriate present for the adults in our life who seem to have everything they need. Something that will be valued, cherished, used and last a lifetime. Electrical, IT equipment and gadgets often end up in the back of a cupboard when the battery or novelty fades. Fashionable things often don’t hit the spot and go out of style the next season anyway. Very few things given as presents seem to be truly valued and last as we hoped they would, do they?
So each year we have to consider what to give ‘the man who has everything’ or the relative or good friend who seems in need of very little (present wise!). So why not consider giving something antique? There is a whole world of things to choose from; from small collectables items, ephemera, art work, jewellery, to large pieces of antique furniture.
Antiques can bring absolute delight to an unsuspecting and grateful recipient who may have a passion for the items given or will benefit from the enjoyment and use over many many years.
Sometimes the antiques you give older relatives can eventually come back to you. For example I quite regularly gave antiques as presents to my late parents who enjoyed using them for many years and then left them to the family when they passed. A lovely antique desk I gave my father is now used by my sister and the Ruskin pottery given to my mother now takes pride of place in our display shelves.
As we, at Burrells Antique Desks, specialise in selling beautifully restored antique desks, tables and chairs we hope that our furniture will bring great enjoyment and be of use for many generations. Customers do sometimes buy from us to give as presents. The recipients often know what they are receiving as these are very practical and often expensive items and we are available to help with the choice if needed. We can bring up to three items of furniture to the customer home or office to enable them to choose the right piece with our ‘Try Before You Buy’ option.
If you are considering a beautiful piece of furniture for a Christmas gift why not look at our selection of antique chairs that can be used to enhance any room as occasional seating or used with an antique desk or writing table. All of our chairs desks and tables are sympathetically restored polished and ready to grace any home or office or library.
You may also consider the impact that an Elegant French Ormolu Walnut Table
or beautifully Inlaid Antique Table would have in a sitting room or lounge. We have some really stunning pieces that you will be hard pressed to find anywhere other than very expensive antique shops.
