These are perfect for the purpose that I bought them for! I enjoy making bath salts, natural masks, scrubs, and natural exfoliating shower goodies for myself as well as gifts for friends and family. These are the perfect addition to go with the jars I use to package my gifts. I had been looking for an affordable option that would meet the elements of quality and "rustic" style I had pictured in my mind. These tiny wooden spoons are it, they are the missing item I've wanted and I never even knew it until I went for the buy! lol
They look perfect tied with a light-colored burlap ribbon to the mason jars I use. I really feel that they add a touch of something special to the gifts and they make them easier for my loved ones to use their scrubs and bath salts. The spoons help to dispense the salts and scrubs without making a major mess. They also help get the appropriate amount out of the jars which are very helpful too.
Another thing I like about these little spoons is that they are a "bonus" gift that will have a useful life well after the bath creations are all used up and long gone. They could continue to be used as a way to dispense bath salts and similar products in the bath or they can be washed up and start a new life in the kitchen! There they can be used to spoon out whole grain coarse mustards from the jar or other seasonings and dips. They could be used for adding sugar to hot tea and coffee or to dish out different types of relishes.
I love these and am quite happy that I bought these cute little fellas! Ha. They are a wonderful addition to gifts of a similar nature to mine. Bath salts or homemade seasonings and dips and much more.
I've even thought of trying out my wood burner on one of the spoons to add a touch of personalization to them for the gifts I make and think that is a great way to make them extra special.
An out of the ordinary Idea that crossed my mind: I want to purchase an additional package of the spoons to create two wooden windchimes as gifts. I'd use the spoons in place of the metal tubes or the bamboo that is usually used for the chimes. I'd likely add details with my wood burner to add to the creativity and artfulness of the windchimes. I'd also drill small holes in the handles with my trusty Dremel for hanging the spoons. I really want to attempt this idea! If anyone else gives it a go, please comment and share your finished project with me.
I hope this review was able to help others out there make a smart purchase, or maybe that I was able to help someone with their creativity!
