Having spent time aiding the elves of Lorien, I have acquired a number of tokens of thanks (Silver and Gold leaves).

There seems to be a wide variety of options to redeem these, and I'd appreciate some advice regarding what would be most useful as investments.

The teal jewellery, whilst shiny, isn't particularly optimised stat-wise (and is expensive). The Galadhrim crafting recipies seem solid but I'm still spoilt by my level 50 Osgiliath armour.

I'm now looking at the 10% Vendor Discount skill, the combined Beleriand+Orc Damage weapon title, Galadhrim Steed and Battle of Lorien consumables.

Thoughts?

100% with you regarding reasoning. While some of the armour/jewellery pieces are nice they aren't BiS and can be expensive (e.g. time consuming). Few nice outfits, too.

So your concluding paragraph is sound, I am contemplating getting the Steed and the Bele+Orc title myself.
I tend to forget about consumables and vendor is kinda meh as we are Kindred with just about every faction we met so far...

It's worth noting that you can get Beleriand title (admittedly without the +Orc) from Eregion for minimal effort...

Yours Best ;)

You have the gratitude of the Elves of Lórien for your deeds of valour and your aid in defending the Golden Wood, Kasey of the Stoors!

Now, as far as these items go:
- I'd also choose the Weapon title among your other choices.
- Consumables and vector discount (i think it's only for items bought with Silver and Gold, not with the Barter Items. Not 100% sure though...) don't seem to be worth it. We're moving very fast and will be out of Lothlórien before you know it.
- The Galadhrim Steed is very similar to the Grey Steed:

Personally, I'll go for it cause I like collecting steeds. If you do so as well, then I suggest you take it.

Even though I agree 100% with you and Sig concerning the armour's stats, keep in mind that it's a pretty rare armour and in my opinion a beauty to behold. Actually, Lir with J and I were discussing about doing multiple raids for collecting the greater elf-stones for anyone who would want a full outfit of the Lady. But that was just a thought and for another discussion. Also, if you're into cosmetics there are some nice outfits in Cerin Amroth as well.

Summarizing, I believe the Weapon-title is a good choice as far as gear, LI and stats go. The rest of the Gold and Silver leaves would be better spent on cosmetics, housing items & steeds. Maybe even some recipes that are unique or rare.
