Coffee Gift Idea | Milk & Honey Luxuries

As a mom who has been able to stay at home with my babies while still making a small contribution to my family's finances, there is nothing I love more than supporting small business.  Especially women owned businesses.  Add in a dose of "and it's a local business" and you've got me hooked.  While playing on instagram a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a really cool feed featuring hand-made wares.  Hand stamped spoons mostly.  This took me to the Etsy site Milk & Honey Luxuries where I promptly spent 45 minutes browsing.

Milk and Honey Luxuries has been featured in People Magazine, The Today Show, Nordstrom Wedding Suites, Martha Stewart American Made, The Knot, and Anthropologie's BHLDN to name just a few.  Clearly I'm a bit late on the love train.  The owner, Sarah, is a wife and mother here in Richmond and is the sister-in-law of a friend of mine.  She is the main creative force behind Milk & Honey Luxuries but recently her husband left his job to join the family business.  Learn a bit more about the process and the family behind the business here.  Oh, and she's gorgeous, right.  That skirt!

It's no secret, I love coffee.  So when I found this "but first, coffee" spoon on her etsy site I knew I had to have it!  In fact, everyone knows how self-less I am with my family.  But one thing you'll hear daily in my house is, hold on baby momma's got to fix her coffee first. Or Okay sweet pea, let me just grab some more coffee real quick.  This spoon was made for me!

 I also love these other coffee spoons.  Wouldn't they make the best gift?  You could attach it to a bag of roasted coffee or tied to a pretty mug.  Such a lovely and thoughtful gift.  And it's practical because all of these pieces are food safe.  What a happy little addition to my morning routine.

Here are a few more that caught my eye.  But really, there are so many.

  4. I love these! And, it's so funny because I am the same way. I always cater to my kids first, but everytime we are at the store, "we need to get you some coffee momma." Haha I also love supporting small businesses. I think it is so important!

  5. These are so cute! There is a similar shop on Etsy called Impressed By a Dame that I ordered a serving spoon and fork set from that are stamped "Hostess with the Mostess."

  6. So cute spoons :) All of them are awesome and I want to have some

    Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have the supreme scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

    The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:
