Our personalized state trivets make for one of the most unique gifts under $50 available on our site. If you have a loved one with a big move on their horizon, you can give them a reminder of where they came from — or design a trivet with the shape of their new state!

Cutting Board Holder

"This cutting board holder is great for display. Typically, I'll lean them up against something else, but this holder makes the board a nice countertop piece. It is also difficult to find board holders made of wood so I'm glad I found this one."
