Traditionally, wood is a fifth anniversary gift, but don’t wait for that milestone to look at natural wood items when gift-giving! Wood pieces make amazing gifts that your friends and family don’t often think to buy for themselves – hence they make the perfect presents.
Nice ‘n’ natural remains a popular vibe as we transition to spring. When I started writing this blog post, I realized how many naturally beautiful pieces we have this season that work so wonderfully as gifts. And, is it just me, or do the birthdays and special occasions for your friends always sneak up and cluster together?
I find myself shopping for several different friends at the same time, and discover that the same item can work really well for my pals even when they don’t share exactly the same style. In fact, the items I chose for this post can fit into several different styles: boho chic, modern farmhouse or just plain modern!
Just because we’re not entertaining for groups these days doesn’t mean we can’t get sorta fancy with the occasional charcuterie board. All of a sudden, cheese and crackers taste a little better when served on a lovely acacia wood board.
Acacia wood has a distinctive curl in its grain which is perfect for rustic farmhouse décor. The handle on this cute, little cheese board is very unique, and is ready for your kitchen – or to be hung from a hook on the wall. Need a gift idea for a hard-to-shop-for someone? Now serving.
We fell in love with these natural teak stands, and we think you will, too. There are two sizes so you can mix and match depending on your space or your needs to showcase a wide variety of items. Or get a pair of the same size; one to gift and one to keep. Then, when your loved one visits, or vice versa, you can share ideas on what to showcase atop the stand.
The stands work well with planters so you can display some faux greenery around the modern farmhouse this season. They’re sturdy and long-lasting risers; another reason they make for a wonderful, natural gift.
Teak naturally features beautiful grain lines and curves. We know your “Rose Buds” will also adore the grain in these natural wood stands. There are three sizes depending on what you want to showcase on top. Perhaps there’s a small- to medium-size piece of sculpture or artwork that needs the perfect stage. Here you go!
Bored with traditional clay pots? It’s time to move to wood. This hanging vase is clean and modern. It has some warm creaminess, too. But, don't add too much moisture as wood can crack, get misshapen or attract other (not-so-welcome) organisms. Faux plants and faux flowers work just as well as the real thing - and they typically last a lot longer!
This vase doesn’t have to live outdoors, either, once you find the right faux greenery to go inside. Imagine it hanging in a friend’s kitchen, dining nook or even an entryway.
We're always looking for unique items that work well for kitchen or dining room decor. It's a plus when they're super functional, too! Who wouldn’t love these hand-carved oblong wooden bowls? The oval shape of the set is so unusual. These look amazing on a shelf or counterscape, as they are; or fill one with fresh fruit and place it on the dining room table.
Thinking of someone who is a little limited on space but loves beautiful things? Consider gifting these impeccable hand carved wooden candlesticks. They’re made in India exclusively for Purple Rose Home. We work one on one with the crafter to introduce unique pieces to our home décor collection. Choose from five different styles or mix them up. Even better, purchase the entire set, gift a trio and keep two for your space!
Wood brings some warmth to your abode (or your friend’s space for that matter). And, we just launched our 2021 spring collection which features lots of wood and oh so much more!
