Gifts that give back. All of the wooden products purchased through our site are gifts that give back - 1 product sold = 1 tree planted. Makes ya feel good, helps the environment and supports all the creatures and plant life that live in the forest. Through our partners at One Tree Planted we are currently focusing our tree planting in California, due to the recent devastating wildfires there. Read more about it here.
Not only do we plant a tree for each wooden product sold but the American hardwoods we use are sustainably forested, which means more is planted than harvested.
This quote from the founder of Patagonia sums it up perfectly:
Who are businesses really responsible to? Their customers? Shareholders? Employees? We would argue that it's none of the above. Fundamentally, businesses are responsible to their resource base. Without a healthy environment there are no shareholders, no employees, no customers, and no business." ~ Yvon Chouinard

#3. Gifts That Give Back – Personalized Lazy Susan
One of my favorites! So fun to spin it to grab what you need. What makes a house a home are the personal touches. A lazy susan with first names, a last name or nickname will personalize your dining room table like nothing else can.
We offer 2 sizes and three wood choices. You can choose a wood match your table color or pick a contrasting wood color.
These aren’t just any tray, they are shaker style decorative trays with brass nail detail. Beautifully handcrafted by Tim Arnold. We fell in love with his creations from the moment we saw them. He wasn’t offering the personalization so that’s where we come in.
We offer two sizes and three different personalization options.
They are each unique works of art. An heirloom gift which will be loved for years to come.
Woof, Walk, Let’s Walk. Our leash wall holders say what your dogs can’t. If you need a place to wrangle your leashes (even if you only have one dog chances are you have more than one leash!) we have your solution. Plus, the cute metal bone hooks are sturdy enough to hold your coat.
If you would like to personalize with a dog’s name, we can do that. Just let me know what you would like for your leash holder to say in the special instructions section.
#7. Gifts That Give Back – Personalized Baby Gifts
We needed a baby gift so we came up with the idea of a floating frame made out of one piece of wood. Then we laser engrave all the birth details and cut out an image of a boy or girl. A personalized baby gift as unique as the little bundle of joy.
You can hang this on a wall or sit on a bookshelf or dresser. A keepsake gift that will be cherished for a lifetime.
These mini chopping boards are my go-to for smaller items that need chopping. This mini Bar board is a go to for cutting great lemons and limes in the bar area. Plus, you will always know where your bottle opener is.
We have 15 different words to choose from and there is even a monogram option. Take on picnics, boating or camping trips. Give as wedding party gifts. Portable enough to take anywhere!
They make great hostess gifts. You can feel good knowing that a tree has been planted with each purchase.
#9. Gifts That Give Back – Seriously Gluten-Free Cutting Board
A must-have for a gluten-free kitchen. If you are gluten-free or know someone who is then you know the importance of having a cutting board that has never touched food that contains gluten. Especially if you have a shared kitchen.
You can personalize the board with a name and the words “Seriously Gluten Free” laser engraved on the board or just the words laser engraved and no name cut out. Our thick butcher block boards are a great addition to any kitchen. And most celiacs I know do a lot of cooking because they don’t want to risk contamination at a restaurant.
#10. Gifts That Give Back – State Shaped Cutting Boards
We hand cut the state shape and make it the “O” in HOME. They make great wedding gifts, going away gifts, hostess gifts or gifts for those who just love their home state. Some people have even been known to hang them as art.
As with all of our wooden products, we will give a tree for each one sold. Together we can build a forest.
In addition to the state cutouts we also offer a heart and pineapple cutout as the "O" in HOME. See pictures below.
We designed these wood stands to hold any size or shape cutting board we sell. Most people like to display their beautiful personalized cutting board for everyone to see and these stands make it safe and easy to do so.
They come in maple, cherry or walnut. The same wood types as our boards. You can match the stand to the board or choose a contrasting wood.
#12. Gifts That Give Back – Personalized Meat Board
Our design is different than most. The surface is sloped so that the juices pool at the bottom and not around the sides. The back is a flat surface and perfect for chopping anything.
The sloped surface also makes a great surface for serving a charcuterie spread. Place all marinated foods like artichokes and olives at the bottom so their juices won’t contaminate everything else. We learned this from a customer!
Our unique meat boards can be personalized or not. Multi-functional and perfect for the person who has everything.
