The personalised wooden trug, from Getting Personal is available in a choice of six colours and with your own personal message of up to 24 characters.
On removing the wooden trug from the box I was surprised with how lightweight it was, but it appeared extremely sturdy and well made. It was also a decent size and depth (H39 x W45 x D8cm), it could easily be used to carry any gardening hand tools, gloves, small plants or vegetables. The only slight negative I found was that I felt the handle was a bit too wide and a bit rough on the edges so it didn’t fit very comfortably in a smaller hand.
What I did love was the vintage look of the wooden trug. The one I received was the ‘shabby blue’ colour which was lovely and the black writing, which was in a bold attractive script, stood out nicely. It can be personalised with up to 24 characters.
The wooden trug would undoubtedly serve its purpose, and I’m quite sure it is one of the prettiest around but I do think the cost of the item, at £34.99, is rather expensive for what it is. However with the added personal touch and made from sustainable FSC pine I’m sure it would make a lovely and appreciated gift for any keen gardener, either on its own or filled with gardening goodies.
