Who doesn’t love receiving a gift from a loved family member or friend? Whether it’s for our birthdays or Christmas, gifts are always a good thing to look forward to.

We can make and receive gifts made from loads of materials. One such material is wood. When we think of wooden gifts, we think about desks or shelves.

Believe it or not, we can find many more items made of wood. So, here are five unique wooden gift ideas for our loved ones.

Wooden Watches

We look at our mobile phones to see what time it is nowadays, but that wasn’t the case even 20 years ago.

If we needed to know the time, we needed to wear a watch on our wrists or look at a clock hung up on a wall.

Even though watches may be obsolete, they’re still brilliant fashion accessories to wear with a slick suit or dress. Like other items on this list, watches can be made from various materials. However, we prefer wooden ones over leather ones.

Wooden watches are stylish accessories that can go with almost any clothing style or colour.

We can wear our finest suits and dresses or everyday T-shirts and jeans, yet these wooden watches will still fit our outfits like a glove!

Bathtub Caddy for iGaming and More

Suppose we’re taking a bath, and we’ve taken our mobile device with us. We can’t hold on to it for too long or else it’ll fall into the water and stop working. How do we fix this problem?

Say hello to the bathtub caddy! This wonderful piece of bathtub furniture can hold our mobile devices, books, and even drinks without dropping them into the water.

We can adjust the width for whatever we’re putting onto the caddy so that nothing will end up with soggy edges. It also matches most decorations with its beautiful wooden colour.

When using the bathtub caddy, we’ll be able to visit the best betting sites, watch videos, or read our books with no worries. Once we receive this gift, there’s no turning back to reading shampoo labels!

Wooden Tap Handles for Home Pubs

How many of us have a home pub? How many of our friends or family members have home pubs? Wooden tap handles are the perfect additions to the home pub experience!

When adding some wooden tap handles, it’ll give our home pubs a natural feel to them. It’ll also remind our guests of real pubs.

Another great thing about these wooden tap handles is that they’re able to serve beer from a keg– just like a real bartender. All we need to do is install a couple of them, and we’re ready.

Once we install these wooden tap handles into our home pubs, we’ll be hosting beer tastings and parties like there’s no tomorrow. One of the greatest things about a home pub is showing it off to friends and family, and these wooden tap handles are brilliant additions to the home pub!

Wooden Lanterns for Dark Times

When we need to build a fire, we use wood as a main source. When we build a fire, we build one to get warmth and light. So, what happens when we use something wooden as a light source? We get a wooden lantern.

Lanterns are nice sources of light for dark nights or when the electricity’s gone out. Like other items on this list, they can be made from various sources. However, isn’t it ironic that there’s a wooden lantern since fire burns wood?

We don’t think so. As we’ve stated before, the fire burning the wood gives us a great source of light and warmth. Besides, modern lanterns don’t need fire as a light source. We have lightbulbs for a light source.

These wooden lanterns don’t need any candles as a light source, so we won’t need to worry about something burning down during dark times.

They’re also brilliant for giving off a late-summer vibe and being a good light source.

Chad Kroeger Picture Frame to Look at This Photograph

‘Look at this photograph. Every time I do, it makes me laugh.’ Any Nickelback fan will recognise that first lyric from the 2005 song ‘Photograph’. Though it only peaked at number 18 on the UK charts, this song is considered a classic among modern music listeners.

Well, ‘Photograph’ may be considered more of a meme than a classic. Still, a Chad Kroeger picture frame from the first frame of the song’s iconic music video will make anyone laugh.

This picture frame will be the perfect conversation starter and the funniest gift anyone can receive from another person. We look at this photograph in the frame, and every time we do, it makes us laugh.

The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Wooden gifts don’t always have to be desks or shelves. They can be unique ideas, like watches, bathtub caddies, tap handles, lanterns, or picture frames based on an iconic song.
