The holiday season is already upon us and the holiday shopping has already begun — for shoppers that don’t wait until the last minute, that is. As you consider your gift-giving list and the folks on it that can be tough to buy for, think outside of the box for great gifts this year. You might even consider a custom woodwork gift that will be a one-of-a-kind treat sure to please even the most difficult to buy for recipient.
A keepsake box is a perfect custom woodwork gift that will suit almost anyone on your list. You can have it made as decorative or as simple as you like, any shape that you can think of, and in whatever size you choose. Find a custom woodworker that shows talent and skill, and have keepsake boxes made for several people on your list this year.
If you have children on your gift list, consider giving them something old fashioned that they will treasure forever; like wooden toys. They don’t make toys like they used to, and a talented woodworker can make a number of wooden toys like blocks, cars and trucks, game boards and mazes. These toy gifts will be met with delight when they’re opened and will serve as a keepsake for a lifetime.

For the homeowner who has practically everything, consider having a custom sign made for them this year. A sign is a unique and personalized gift that the recipient is sure to love. Options include an address sign, a family name sign for their front door, a welcome sign, or some artistic piece thought up and created by you and your favorite woodworker.
Consider a piece of wooden home decor for that hard to buy for someone on your holiday shopping list. If this sounds like a great idea, you should have a conversation with a woodworker in your area to find out what they can create with their skillset. A few home decor items might be a calendar, a decorative stepping stool, a birdhouse, a display box, or even a jewelry box.
