Wooden Christmas gifts: our top five

You’ll no doubt be in the thick of your Christmas shopping. Not long now. And perhaps you’ve been pondering some wooden Christmas gifts? As there’s so much to choose from, we thought you’d welcome us highlighting our top five, based on popularity (and feedback) from previous years. So, here goes.

Number one: Wooden carving board

Who says tradition is dead? Our handmade wooden carving boards come into their own at Christmas time. They’re easily our front-runner. The perfect gift for a special couple, Dad, or even your own home. 

Made from European oak, the weighty boards are 42mm thick and can be engraved on the front and back edges. Available in two sizes, we’ve even bespoke-made a four-foot long board to accommodate a three-bird roast!

“Much better than I expected, and such a great gift. Thanks so much.” Kirsten B

Number two: Gin & Tonic board

A fun and thoughtful gift for anyone that likes a tipple. It makes preparation even more enjoyable. Such a handy size to have at the ready, they’ll love the quality of the oak – hand finished with Osmo TopOil. We can engrave your message on the side and on the base of the board. Their special board will be dedicated to them.

 “A really thoughtful gift for us G&T lovers. I’ve bought a few!” Lorraine B.

Number three: Bath caddy

Recently featured on George Clarke’s Old House, New Home, this is as decadent as it gets. And demand is high. Handmade in a variety of widths, the sturdy wooden caddy houses four tea light holders, a wine glass holder and a tablet stand. Our bath caddies ensure the ultimate in relaxation. Just what they need after the Christmas festivities.

Of course, we’ll engrave the edge or base with your personalised message to make it extra special. This is a gift that just keeps giving.

“It’s transformed the bathroom into a serene place for lengthy relaxation. I’m told it was the perfect gift.” Tom S.

 Number four: Boot jack

When it’s wet and muddy outside, there’s nothing more welcoming than a homely boot jack to help get those wellies off in quick-sharp time. And that’s why our wooden boot jacks are so popular. There’s room for (at least) one by every front door.

Designed to withstand the elements, our jacks are finished with Osmo TopOil. They’re a decent weight too, thanks to the quality of European oak. If you give your loved ones a boot jack this Christmas, they’ll get inside faster for a warm cuppa!

Lots of wellies to store? Take a look at our wooden welly boot stands.

“Just the best, well-received presents!” Anna L

Number five: Personalised key rings

A heart-warming idea for so many, our engraved key rings are popular wooden Christmas gifts. Does Dad lose his shed keys? What about your parents and their summer house? Give them a homely, personalised key ring and they’ll never misplace keys again.

We craft our key rings from small pieces of oak and engrave them with your own message. They’re then finished with Osmo TopOil to bring out the attractive graining.  A sturdy ring enables the key to be securely attached.

“My father beamed when he saw his keyring, just for him. He loves it, thank you.” Clare P.
