It’s no secret that I love wood, primarily reclaimed wood, and anything rustic or farmhouse in design. In my opinion nothing can match the uniqueness and charm that comes from a piece of wood that has been around for years, possibly even decades, passed from home to home, possibly journeying from state to state or even country to country, telling a story in every scratch, dent, groove or crack that comes with the knocks of life. Like humans, mature wood carries its battle scars with pride and becomes more beautiful in character because of them. I know, I know, “it’s just wood” I hear you say, but if you are a lover of reclaimed wood then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
I figured that since I had a blog and I had a reclaimed wood decor business, I might as well get onto the gift recommendation bandwagon this christmas and give my fellow wood (and rustic decor) lovers (and those that have the job of buying for them) a jam-packed list of the best rustic wood items to give (and ask for) this christmas…or next christmas…or as long as this blog post is circulating, and as long as the items are still available.
You’ll notice that all these items come from Etsy, because let’s face it, Etsy is the home of the greatest handmade, handcrafted and uniquely designed items from all over the world. Some of these items come from my shop (WoodCycle) and some come from other fabulous stores across Etsy. Wherever they come from I am sure you will agree, they are unique and beautiful. Some of them are even on SALE!
