While Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, full of magic and excitement, it’s no secret that Santa is not the only one hard at work. There’s schedules to coordinate, food to buy, and a house to decorate, there’s visits, visitors and of course Zoom meet-ups! And this year is perhaps more stressful than usual, with the added uncertainty of whether we will be allowed to celebrate the way we would like to.
Over at Crafted Pine Co, we’re tackling one of your Christmas To Do’s for you: the gift list. We have gorgeous gifts for everyone on your NICE list. All of our gifts are designed and handmade by our team, with the option to personalise many of our lovely things, we can almost guarantee the recipient won’t already have it, and we can absolutely guarantee they will love it! So whatever Christmas looks like this year, we can help ensure everyone has an unforgettable gift to open on Christmas morning.

For the Baby
For the littlest members of your family, choose a gift that lasts and will grow with them. We recommend our beautiful Whale Shelf, available in a choice of 30 colours to perfectly match their existing nursery décor. Alternatively, opt for a personalised toy box to scale up the storage available in their room, while investing in a quality piece that will last for years to come. Another nursery essential are our Name Blocks, available to mix and match in any of our colours and with the option of letters painted onto the block, or letters in pine on a painted block. Finally, complete your name blocks with a panda shelf sitter, ideal for popping into the top of stockings on Christmas morning before decorating a shelf or mantle all year round.
For the Kids
Christmas is an expensive time of year, and you want peace of mind that the gifts you buy will last long after next Christmas. When you shop with us, you are choosing quality materials and craftsmanship that are built to last. For the kids, this year we recommend a fun shelf to safely store their favourite keepsakes and toys. Our Butterfly and Rocket Shelves are ideal gifts and they are available in any of our colours or in natural pine to perfectly match both their room theme and colour scheme. Alternatively, keep their books neat and tidy and make storytime even more fun with our Bookends, available with either dinosaurs, flamingos, rockets or llamas. Add their name to a custom wall plaque for a personalised wall hanger or door hanger. Another personalised choice is our large animal blocks, available in a choice of animals, dinosaurs and snowmen, there’s a choice for everyone! On Christmas morning, pop their personalised gift on top of their Christmas presents to show which presents belong to whom. Finally, mix and match pictures and colours to create a completely custom set of stacking blocks perfectly suited to your kid’s favourites!
For the Teenager
We all know some teenagers that would prefer to be hanging out with their friends, so this Christmas, show them you care with our #Selfie photo holder. Bonus points for printing out their favourite selfie with all their besties ready for displaying. Alternatively, tempt them to flex their creative skills with our Paint Your Own Animal Block kit, personalised with their name, to create some fun family memories this Christmas. Encourage their social awareness with our “Be Kind” Wall Plaque, available in our beautiful Raspberry, for a wall hanging they’ll cherish for years to come. And finally, create a personalised wall plaque for their wall or door, and remember to add a picture that represents their personality, such as a gaming controller, a heart or a butterfly.
Whether you are shopping for your other half, your sister, or your auntie, we have some Scandi-inspired homewares that complement and enhance any home. Show your love with a Boho Heart Shelf in natural pine, ideal for displaying plants, photos and keepsakes. Alternatively, our Circle Planter is a much admired addition to any room. Choose from fully painted or a dipped paint finish in their favourite colour. Bonus points for adding a hanging plant to their gift to complete the look! Finally, choose our unique Cloud Chopping Board to brighten their kitchen, or for a unique centre piece on their dining table.
And for the blokes on your Christmas list, whether it’s your hubby, your brother, or your uncle, we recommend adding some Scandi-inspired finishing touches to their home, such as our Hexagon Coasters and Platter. Add a dash of colour to our coasters to suit their existing décor. Plus, the geometric shape of the coasters and platter adds an interesting detail to coffee tables, breakfast bars and dining tables, the perfect gifts for those who have everything!
For the Grandparents
Get sentimental this Christmas, and gift those proud grandparents something they’ll cherish. Our Wall Photo Holders can be personalised with any name or phrase, or a special location or date. So all you need to do is print their favourite photo of the grandkids and your gift is ready to go! Or choose a Custom Wall Plaque and add a custom phrase, such as the names of their grandkids, or “Granny and Granda” and complete with their surname. Both our Photo Holder and Wall Plaques are complete with all the fittings you need to display on a wall, or they can simply be displayed on a shelf or mantle. Alternatively, gift them a quality wooden Hexagon Shelf to store their Photo Holders and keepsakes from their grandkids.
Make sure you get what you really want this Christmas and treat yourself this year! Our range of Christmas decorations are ideal for sprucing up the house and getting into the festive spirit. Our Family Christmas Plaque is complete with your family name and adds a festive, welcoming touch to hallways or looks great beside a Christmas tree. Speaking of Christmas trees, we offer a range of personalised Christmas Baubles to suit every taste and tree! Upgrade your tree with a bauble for each of your family members, and don’t forget the pets too! Add the finishing touch to your festive home decor with our Snowman and Penguin Shelf Sitters. They look great on a shelf or mantle, and are easily stored for next year.
And finally… for the one you forgot
OOPS! Isn’t it the worst when this happens? No matter how prepared you are, there is always someone that completely slips your mind. If disaster strikes this year, be ready with a “Memories” photo holder. They make a thoughtful gift that would suit anyone on your Christmas list. So throw a spare one in with your shopping, and have it wrapped and ready for any surprise guests!
