The Story of the creation of our Tin and Driftwood Date ornament

Like all family businesses, the whole family participate in its smooth operation and Tin gifts is very much a family business. A family which has multiplied by two since Tin Gifts was created back in 2009.


My Son and especially my Daughter always take an interest in what daddy does. They often come down to the workshop. They have a den in the corner which I have created from boxes. This is filled with toys for them to play with when daddy needs to work.
It was two months ago when my daughter was drawing on the kitchen table, she called me over and asked me to draw with her. I was quite busy at the time doing something work related. I went over anyway, as I thought I could come up with some new product ideas whilst over there and utilise her supply of fresh clean paper.

So, she started drawing some pretty houses and pictures of our family whilst I got stuck into creating some products.
She took a look at my designs and how I was using numbers for dates in some of the designs. She turned my paper over (as if to say thatís rubbish dad) and she drew a base (like a stand) with numbers on top. See image.

This was fantastic! The week before we had all collected driftwood together and this would make a perfect natural base to accompany the locally sourced tin.

The following day I created the first version of this product and that day it went on sale.
My daughter asks all the time how her product is selling. She sees them all made and lined up in the workshop and I see a little smile on her face as she knows thatís her product.

Donít worry, she did alright out of it and got herself a brand new toy for her creativity.
