My mother is from Finland and she always brought a Toikka bird as a hostess gift. I continued the tradition when I gave this Ruby Red Bird bird to my in-laws when they hosted Christmas dinner. I chose red because of the season and the warmth the color emanated. The Toikka bird is just the right size, not too bigto be garish, not to small to disappear in a room full of Christmas knick-knacks. The superior craftsmanship is immediately evident. Perhaps next year I will add to the tradition by giving a bird to myself!
