I am a Gransnetter and not an advertiser. I am on a couple of threads . I wanted a pretty two handled mugs for my sister in law for Christmas as she has MS. I would have thought it was easy to get.

Unfortunately all the ones on disabled sites are ugly. Not on the high street or eBay sell them. The ones on Amazon where ugly.

Finally I tried Esty only one person made them. A lovely young woman her company is called LollyCraftCreations the mug was £28. Had many emails between her yesterday. She started making them because her nana had arthritic hands but loved to drink out of a beautiful mug.

Talking to her yesterday she didn't realise they were so hard to come by. As she sells on Esty and local Highland shops. She will paint the design of your choice and put the person's name on if you wish.

I just thought if anyone else wanted such an item it would save you the hours I spent looking.

What a great idea! And yes, who wants to drink out of an ugly mug?!

I totally agree that mugs for the disabled are both very ugly and heavy! Thanks for the heads up.

How about a two-handled bone china cup and saucer?

PinkCakes that's nice but a bit vintage. I wanted something modern. My sister in law is 58.

The Wade ones are quite heavy.
