Flash Post: Give ‘Em The Boot

Boot Carpet

What It Is: A winter shoe & boot mat with handy outlines to know where to place your most beloved pairs while they’re drying off. That’s not all though. It also happens to be made from recycled wiper / scraper blades. And it’s actually made by Quebec design firm TOMA. A cute addition to your mud room, front door, or small spaces like apartment or condo entryways.

Who It’s For: Your hyper-organized sister that’s dealing with dorm life for the first time: maximize space and minimize silt & water in your rug! Your downtown loft-living brother, to give his entryway a little style. Your just-bought-a-new-place girlfriend, as a funky housewarming choice.

What It Costs: $45 (although there are other options for slightly less here & here)

Where It’s At: MADE – a hyper-cool Canadian-made design store.


ETA: Definitely forgot my bonus entry into the sick Rodial giveaway I’ve got going on. Want to earn yourself an extra entry? Follow the lead of the other commenters & tell me what you think of this nifty gift idea 🙂

    Find Of The Month: Rodial bonus entry #2: I think it’s a great gift idea for a new homeowner & the fact that it’s made from recycled wiper/scraper blades & is made in Canada is another selling point. [like the boots too!]
