Manchester Bee wood coaster in walnut or oak. Ideal as personalised wedding favours, a gift for mum, a housewarming gift, a gift for a beekeeper, even an anniversary gift. Always a perfect gift for anyone with a connection to Manchester.

We can now personalise your bees with engraved messages, a brilliant one off gift for someone special! We will size your text to fit the width of the bee’s body. If it’s more than a couple of words, please split it over two lines otherwise it will be quite small!

It’s a lovingly designed laser cut coaster in the shape of the iconic Manchester Bee, with a bit of a twist! The honeycomb wings are a lovely touch and will appeal to lovers of beekeeping or geometric patterns.

Each bee is made from 6mm thick walnut (shown) or oak veneered board, which is then hand finished and treated to withstand spills and drips.

They look great as a wooden coaster on your coffee or dining table. Or you can put them on your wall or shelf as cool contemporary art.

The bees are 120mm wide by 100mm tall (approx 5″ x 4″).

Made in Manchester with pride.

Jessica6 is a new lifestyle and jewellery brand. We have big plans! We have some of Britain’s top jewellery and product designers working behind the scenes to create a fantastic range of items over the coming months. We soft launched in May 2017 and are completing our first range of jewellery right now.

  4. Mrs Brown

    Beautiful item. I bought for myself and as presents for Birthdays. I will be ordering more of these. I was a little worried about using them, for ruining them, but so far they have taken every cup of coffee I've had and not a mark on them. Thank you.

    Same review as my hedgehog purchase: the bees were beautiful and well-made, but the packaging was burnt. Surprised that a package with a large burn mark which disintegrated in spots to ashes was mailed. out

    Really lovely work! Can't wait to gift it to my stepdad.

  35. Stephanie Lewis-Cooper

    Absolutely adorable little 'Manchester Bees'. I bought these for 3 different friends who all come from Manchester but who are now scattered throughout the world. They will make beautiful little 'extra gifts' and the one friend who has already received hers has hung it on her wall next to her pictures of 'home'. Lovely.

  225. Xuan Vo

    I purchased this as a gift for my sister and she absolutely loves it. She decided to use it as decoration because it’s of such great quality.

    The item took nearly a month to receive considering it was being shipped from the UK to the United States and also because it was during the major holidays (Christmas and New Year). I reached out to Jessica about my concern with the shipment delay and she responded promptly.

    Aside from waiting so long to receive, I had no issues. The product is well crafted and of great quality. Highly recommend for any honey bee lovers in your life.
