Holiday Gift Guide for Everyone in Your Family

While it may seem like you still have plenty of time before holiday gift-giving season, it’s a great time to start shopping now — especially if you’re looking for a custom, personalized gift for that special someone in your life. They say it’s always better to give than receive, and that’s especially true when the gift is chosen especially for the recipient! Below we have some top picks for everyone in your family.

The independent one

Do you know someone who has flown the nest for the first time? What about a new graduate who’s finally living outside of the dorms? Help them customize their space and show off this milestone in their life with a personalized wooden monogram wall hanging. A rope border adds a touch of something special, and you can choose from 4 fonts and 16 colors. For the DIY-ers in your life, we also offer this monogram unpainted.

We can make this particular monogram with up to four initials. It can also be made in your choice of size, ranging from 16” to 36” — the possibilities are endless! Our team can also offer custom options not shown on our website. Because of the personalized nature of this gift, it takes about 4-6 weeks to create.

The early learner

It’s never too early to start helping toddlers with literacy skills, and studies say that can start by helping them learn the letters that make up their name. It’s often literally the first word they learn and learn to spell. A personalized wooden name stool in their bedroom or playroom keeps letter-learning front and center, and will quickly become a cherished memory.

These classic maple stools come in a wide range of colors to match any home decor. We also offer several sizes and can put two names on the same stool. Is your little one into cars? What about trucks or zoo animals? No problem — we can even add a theme to your name stool. To make this gift extra-special, we can add engraving and even gift-wrap it for a little extra. Bonus: Our experienced team can also personalize these stools with non-English names!

The toy collector

It’s hard to avoid amassing an impressive collection of toys when you’re a kid, but that doesn’t mean they have to become a disorganized mess! Give your collector (or highly organized parent!) a home for all of the toys with a wooden toy box chest personalized with a name. Add a special touch with an engraved message that everyone can see when they clean up.

These maple toy boxes look amazing with clear lacquer, but they can also be finished with a cherry or espresso chain and your choice of 19 paint colors to match moods and decor. These boxes are easy to move and truly kid-friendly, with ventilation and a safety hinge that can protect little fingers from injury. Shipping is free and the toy box chest will arrive fully assembled; no need to wait for a grown-up to put it together. 

The one who’s eager to help

For young children who may not be tall enough to join in the fun of activities like holiday cookie baking or crafting all year-round, this two-step name stool can be just what you’re looking for. These maple stools are handcrafted and sturdy, and can help your little ones access countertops and make them feel independent and part of the action.

Options include personalization with one or two names and a longer length to accommodate two names instead of one and four feet instead of two. There’s also hidden storage for all of those important baking or crafting tools that you want to keep handy. Names and colors can be personalized and customized to your specifications and can take up to 4 weeks to create. Don’t forget special engraving!

We offer several different versions of our name stools with lots of options for customers to customize colors and themes. Every item is crafted to order, so no two are alike. We also sell a variety of children’s puzzles, toys, toy boxes, coat racks, and rocking chairs. All paints, finishes, and wood are child-safe and made in the United States, and we even offer free replacement pieces for our puzzles — you just pay for shipping.
