Valentine's Gifts For Him

Valentines Gifts for MenI just opened my emails this morning to an email from The Good Web Guide to say that we have been featured in their "Valentine's -Gifts For Him" Edit. Not only am I really happy to have been featured I think this is all too exciting as I love the Neon G&T Board that they picked as a perfect gift for your fella on the 14th February!

We have a whole range of other gifts for men if the Neon Board isn't quite his cup of tea. The Bits and Bobs Bowls are always appreciated by blokes as they are such a solid piece of oak, with the natural grain running through and offer the perfect solution to storing loose change, keys, T-Pegs screws and all his bits and bobs when he empties his pockets to save the washing machine ( that's if you have him well enough trained!)

If your MR is particularly fond of his devices he may like somewhere to stand them and charge them...it's a life saver for tangled up wires and looks the part on the side of a desk, next to the bed or on any side board- engraved with a favourite saying or his name it makes a useful device charger really personal.

Lots of men really love a glass of the grape so a wine rack is sure to impress them and show them they really are loved this Valentines day. Let us know if you need help with engraving ideas- we have had some really great ones over the years!

Thanks to The Good Web Guide for the feature. Its a great website so make sure you nip over and have look and in the meantime have a look through our valentines election for some more ideas.

A Thankyou For Your Shooting Host

With the pheasant shooting season coming to the end on the 1st February you may be starting to think about purchasing a special gift for your host or perhaps you had such an amazing time this season and really want to show how much you appreciate all the hard work your game keeper does.

Our Shot Glass Trays and Shot Glass Peg Trays are such a fabulous addition to any shoot. The Shot Glass Peg Trays also have the added addition of the peg number discs underneath the glasses which offer and ingenious way to select your peg for the days shooting. Each person enjoys their shot and reveals their peg number on lifting the glass.

The Peg Boards look great engraved with the name of the shoot, farm or estate and will be a welcome addition to any shooting lunch or dinner.  What a delicious way, paired with slow gin, to start your day out in the great British countryside! Then re-use it again after your shooting lunch with a rich port to finish.

The shot to keep your barrels hot!! Shot Glass Peg Tray

Three Reasons To Shop with Us!

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

The Perfect Turkey Board

Christmas dinner is literally one of my favourite things of the year. I picture it in my head, just like the cheesy adverts and the Dickens novel; my angelic children sitting nicely, laughing over pulling crackers, while the biggest turkey ever grown sits juicy and golden in the middle of the table. Heaven. Never mind the desserts.....Read more
