Beating the Heat With Sweet Treats & Dibor

Jun 232017

Summer’s heatwaves are beginning early this year, so it’s no wonder that people are flocking to our range of tableware for ice cream, cocktails and chilled drinks – with the weather being ideal for Barbecues, Picnics and Alfresco dining, there’s no better time to get prepared for the onslaught of summer heat.

While we’ve always been famous for our beautiful – and celebrity chef endorsed – Bella Perle range, Dibor’s tableware ranges far beyond, and with Summer being the most common time of year for outside table dining, here's some favourites for desserts! Ice cream has been a snack food in hot climates since Ancient Greece – yes, really! – And, when presented properly, the relatively simple side food can look ornate and beautiful. Time for a Sundae, anyone?

One of our favourite items of ice cream glassware is this unique Sundae Swivel Glass.
With an unusual art deco shape, and robust, thick glass, this tall glass is ideal for any table that’s looking to impress. Try serving a colourful sundae, a thick milkshake, a frothy ice cream float or a bright fruit salad…
Available in multiples at great discounts – only £20 for a set of six.


If Sundaes aren’t your thing, our beautiful Leaning Bowls make another novel twist that’ll attract their attention.
High sided, and equally durable, they make a fantastic dessert bowl for anything from fresh fruits to sorbet. This unique dish design is available in a variety of ranges.
For a splash of colour this summer, try our Amethyst and Smoked Grey varieties, both only £6.00 each.


With Wimbledon rapidly approaching (3rd of July!) the traditional Strawberries and Cream is a combination that simply can’t be beaten.
The only thing that improves it is presentation, and our beautiful Elise Dessert Bowl is a superb option. With its beautiful stemmed shape, this stunning luxury dish makes an excellent companion for any sweet treat – and recreates the milieu of the old European ice cream parlour, for only £7.00 each.


Summer sorted!

Personalised Picnic Hampers - Summer gifts for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and more.

Jun 152017

It’s Picnic season – but that’s not all; there are more weddings, anniversaries, and engagements in the height of summer than any other time of year, and, as a result, we’re receiving rapidly rising orders for couple’s gifts!

With our brand new personalisation service, we can now offer you an increasing range of picnic hampers, baskets and more with an engraved, 100% leather tag, with a message of your choice. For a small extra fee, our already incredible ranges of giftware and homeware can be made even more special when bought for those you love.

With our state of the art engraving equipment, our team in Dibor’s specialist West Yorkshire mill studio can have your order ready for dispatch on the same day.

And what could possibly be a better wedding or anniversary gift than a fully kitted out Picnic hamper?

With the virtues of spending time together getting harder and harder to experience, the picnic is the perfect way to bring loved ones even closer - and giving hampers as a gift to those who are newly married - or have been for decades, even! - Is a lovely way to seal two people getting that little bit closer.

Dibor’s hampers are well recommended in the national press. Only last month, The Independent took note of our stunning, extra large boat hamper, pointed out the virtues of its space saving.
At 55cm wide, it's enormous, and with its novel shape and bottle carriers on either side, is a particularly good option for a picnic for two or four. At £138, it's a superb luxury gift, especially for weddings and anniversaries.

And that's not all - Caravan and Motorhome Club's June 2017 issue has chimed in with their own favourite; our luxury Willow hamper for four.
This has been an incredibly popular item after it was featured in our blog post last month, and with the amount of equipment and storage space it provides for the price, we think it's little wonder! At only £94, it's ideal for a more budget conscious family seeking a durable, long term product for a luxury picnic.

Taking us back to the quieter, more peaceful days of life, the picnic is France’s own Alfresco tradition with as much sophistication as it has simplicity. As the Sun grows warmer (and more common) throughout June, July and August, there is no better way to spend some time together – or as a family.

Dibor has a huge range of hampers for parties ranging between two people and six. All recapture that same rustic elegance that has made France such a popular culture, but most of all will give any family that essential opportunity to spend some time together - and for a new couple, or one celebrating their anniversary - a perfect way to spend some time away for a romantic retreat.

Our personalisation has already proven incredibly popular. Our engravers are amazed with the variety of messages and purposes we've seen on your tags: from corporate gifts, romantic presents, housewarmings and weddings, customers have gone all out on celebrating somebody else's special day this week, and with the low price (£5.00 or £7.00 depending upon the matching tag), we can't blame them!


One of our most popular in the range to be personalised is our beautiful English hamper for two.
this has become a very popular corporate gift - in fact, ten of them to left our mill today! - And is a perfect way to pack up on a budget. Small, compact and practical, with every bit of charm our larger models carry, for only £25. This has flown off of the shelves but will be back with us soon!


If you've got a larger family, we've got the solution for you with this enormous six person family-sized hamper.
With a striking blue colour scheme and handy equipment for a trip to the beach, park or country, it's a superb solution for any large gathering and durable enough to last for years to come. The hand woven wicker is built for strength as well as aesthetic! This superb arsenal for sandwiches and snacks is only £189 and may well be one of the most impressive baskets in Dibor's market-leading collection.


Keep an eye out for the personalisation options on picnic baskets and more, as we roll it across our range. And don't forget to check out our amazing range of hampers today.
