We learned early on what people really want is a unique personalized wooden cutting board. The most popular is a wooden cutting board with 2 first names or a last name. We encourage people to get creative and over the years have expanded the personalization offerings to include single initial monogram and 3 initial monogram.
Our most popular, two first names.
I think this is our most ordered cutting board because it is what we show the most in pictures but also because in this day and age not every couple as the same last name. The number one question with this personalized option is "which name do I put first?". Most people put the persons name they know best first but there are those people who still feel like the women's name should be first. There is no right or wrong. The couple will love their new personalized cutting board either way.
Cutting board with last name.
The last name option is great if 2 first names won't fit on a board (there is a 15 character max) and the couple shares the same last name. Or maybe you aren't personalizing the cutting board for a couple, but instead it's for 1 person and you don't want to use the first name.
We all know someone who is known by their last name more than their first name.
Another reason to use a last name is if you are gifting the wooden board to a family and can't put everyone's name on the board. This way everyone feels included.
A nickname is always a good idea.
Our favorite cutting boards to make have a nickname as the personalization. It's fun to see what unique names people have for each other. Nick names are just for couples, parents have nicknames for their children and grandchildren have nick names for their grandparents. It is sweet to see.
This MY TULIP board pictured is an example of a nickname someone ordered. We often try to guess the meaning of the nickname. To carve a nickname into wood is a permanent and forever way to celebrate your love and or friendship with someone. Get creative!
Personalize with name and decoration
If you know a person or family that loves the beach, the mountains, crabs or loves to dance you should pick one of our cutting boards that gives you an even more personalized and creative gift than just a name.
We are often asked to come up with a cut out that is even more tailored to the recipient. We have done cut outs to represents someones love for national parks or boats. We once did a cut out of an ax and needle to represent the couples careers, a firefighter and nurse.
Our boards are made to order so if you have something in mind and don't see it on our site please let us know. Some of the cut out images that we offer are a result of a customer request that we thought others might like. We love to collaborate with our customers.
Sometimes a single initial monogram is in order.
Our newest personalization option is crushed stone inlay. This works great with a single initial. You can choose from turquoise, lapis or malachite. If 2 first names, last name or nickname is more than our 15 character limit, don't fear a single initial is our answer.
Or if you prefer the look of a cut out we also offer a single initial monogram cut out of the wood.
Pictured is our maple wood with crushed malachite inlay. Simple and sophisticated.
Personalize your wooden cutting board with shapes.
