I gave myself this as a blog title and found it hard to nail down just three reasons that set us apart from other online gift businesses...after all why on earth wouldn't you want to shop with us?
So here are three reasons why you SHOULD shop with From The Oak Tree:
1 / SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL
When you email, send a text, comment on our Insta feed, check us out on facebook you get real people! You get little old me; in my office, on dog walk, at a show or even on the school run and I will really try and help find out exactly what it is you need ( or really want!). When you contact us you become part of our extended family- I buy into your ideas and really try and understand the people you are buying for.
I personally write out each and every order and send it to the workshop where it is carefully made and looked after until it comes back to me for oiling and packing. I look after each gift as if its's for my best friend and I get a little bit of happiness from each and every oak gift. If you want to make a slight change to an order, contact me, Il'l contact you as soon as I can and I will do my jolly best to oblige- if you want some ideas or some inspiration I may be able to help too. Real people make real ideas come true and because we are small we really do make all of our products with love!
2/ WE MAKE HEIRLOOMS
Our oak gifts are not just gifts for the now they are gifts for the future. Think about an oak tree- it stands proud, it holds its ground and it is admired for many, many years. That's exactly what our products do!
Imagine the Oak Swing that you want to buy your little one. When you get around to purchasing this beautiful swing with an inspirational quote, their name or even the name of the house, the children will be over the moon with their gift . You too will admire it most days and sometimes have a sneaky little swing (after all we are never too old). Many a season is witnessed from this wonderful oak gift. The years pass, it's still enjoyed and that little one is now a big one, now an adult and has children of their own....enjoying the beautiful oak swing the same way it had been used all those years ago.
Think Chopping Boards, Toast Racks, Welly Boot Racks...all everlasting gifts to be had! Heirlooms in the making!
3/ WE CAN SOLVE GIFT ISSUES
When you are looking for that really "special gift", something different, something unique and something that really says; "thank you", "I love you", "Happy Birthday" or "Happy Anniversary" or a whole list of other messages we have the answer! There really is something for everyone in our range and each gift can be made that little bit extra special using your own choice of words.
Our Chopping Boards look amazing perched on the top in every single kitchen on earth. They are a reminder that we are loved and have been thought about on each daily occasion it is used. Our swings add life long fun to the lives of those you have gifted. The Welly Boot Racks add organisation to the homes of busy people who really will be over the moon with their new oak addition. If you require something a little smaller consider one of our kitchen or in the house products. Paired together with your own choice of words, something useful becomes something really special and tells that hard to buy for person that they are "worth the extra effort".
So there you have it, my three reasons why to shop with us. Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget if you have any questions at all get in touch- it really is me at the other end xxx
