We've put together a list of popular Live Edge projects that would look great all wrapped up in a bow this holiday season! From small gifts to ones that won't fit under the tree , we've got everyone on your list covered in our 2023 Live Edge Gift Guide!

1. Live Edge Charcuterie Board

Charcuterie Boards are a great choice for that hard to buy for person! Not only do they give you the opportunity to customize and personalize the gift to fit their taste, charcuterie boards can also be multi-purpose! They can be hung as decorative wall art, used as unique centerpieces, or placed somewhere on their own to be a decor item!

Keep things simple of a sleek slab or find a piece with large cracks and voids to fill with epoxy for a pop of color! Your loved one is sure to enjoy this distinctive holiday gift.

2. Solid Wood Coffee Table

As the festivities of the holiday season move along, gather around a solid wood coffee table for some quality time or R&R! Perfect for laying out gifts or holding drinks and snacks, these furniture pieces also add a cozy feeling to any room with their natural characteristics. 

Design a live edge or straight edge coffee table for that special someone on your list, and enjoy celebrating with them and their new gift!

3. Live Edge Holiday Table Scaping

Tablescaping is defined as “the activity of arranging items on a table in an attractive and decorative way…” so naturally, live edge slabs fit right into this home decor trend!  

Enjoy choosing a slab that fits the person's personality! From reserved and refined to outgoing and abstract, they'll love the thought and heart put into their one of a kind gift!

Do-It-Yourself... or Don't!

Doing the work adds an extra personal touch to live edge gifts, but not everyone has the time or tools! We offer a range of custom work options so you can let us take some of the weight off your shoulders. Choose from having your live edge slab flattened on one or both sides, having it prepared for finishing (to save you from all that messy sanding), or let us take it all the way through the full finish! Our finishing team is ready to help make your holiday gifts one for the books.

Important Holiday Shipping Reminder!

If you are wanting a fully finished piece, we highly recommend ordering 3-5 weeks before the holiday you want to receive it! This is a busy time of year and also when we start experiencing shipping delays due to snow.
