Sustainable Christmas Gift Guide For The Whole Family

There is nothing we love more than reusing materials which would otherwise go to landfill or on the bonfire, it really is our passion here to save things, and those of you that have been to our workshop or studio will know I have quite the collection of things!


What we love more than anything is how much you guys share our passion and how much you LOVE our wooden products and being sustainable with your purchases. Once again, we have been completely blown away by all of your orders, likes, shares, comments and messages.


However, we know you aren't all finished your gift buying yet, therefore we've put together a reclaimed gift guide, packed full of sustainable ideas made in our workshop and studio, handmade from scratch by us from start to finish using reclaimed timber. And don't worry, we've broken it down to give you ideas for even the hardest to buy for, because when we put our gift range together we really do think of everyone!


And there really is no worries here, everything from start to finish is considered to reduce the impact on our environment and to take another step to more sustainable living. Our products not only last a life time, they get even more beautiful with age and use!



Gifts For Grandparents


We love getting older customers at our market stalls at Christmas because they always have the best tales to tell and my lordy they were good at reusing in their day, before it all became fashionable of course! We send a huge amount of our books Pallet Style to the older generation and we love to hear their making stories.

But of course, after all those years hard work, what grandparents really need is a good TV dinner! Our handmade lap trays are the perfect gift for those who just want to sit back and relax and if they want to eat their dinner on their knee then they damn well can!

Sometimes you just want to say a little thank you and our reclaimed tealight holders are the perfect little thoughtful gift. We make our tealight holders from salvaged timber and finish them with a dark wood wax to give a sophisticated rustic finish. Gifting someone extra special? Add some handpoured soy wax scented tealights from our friends Kica Living, available to add to your order via our website. Our tealight holders also come in two sizes, the smaller perfect for room decoration and the larger great for dressing the table. Whats even better is, these don't just have to be for Christmas, switch up your tealight scents throughout the year to sit with the seasons.

Gifts For Little ones & Families


I always find children hard to buy for when it comes to small businesses, if it isn't clothing, it tends to be difficult to find something to engage them. Which is why we introduced our DIY bug house kit which has been hugely popular for children and whole family gifts! Our DIY kits come with the cut (to size), de-nailed and sanded reclaimed pallet boards as well as the basic materials to create your project, e.g. nails, wood glue, varnish etc, meaning all you need is a few basic tools to create! We also include a step by step guide on how to create your project! We can guarantee the children will be eager to create this on Christmas Day! Get your thermals on mum and get out into the garden, its time to show off those hammering skills! ;)
