Drift Away

DocksmithWhat It Is: A line of gorgeous docks for your Apple iPhone and iPad products, made from one-of-a-kind driftwood collected from the Maine coast. Each piece is carefully hand-selected from quiet coves and inlets so as not to disturb the natural environment. Then it’s dried, sanded, and wired up to function as a beautiful natural piece of art and a handy home for when your devices need a charge.

Who It’s For: Your dad, for Father’s Day. Your friend, as a sleek wedding gift. Your spouse, as a lovely anniversary gift for your five-year ‘wooden’ anniversary.

What It Costs: Prices range but generally start at the $82 mark and go up from there.

Where It’s At: Docksmith is available online and ships to Canada, but you can also find them at a handful of gift shops in Canada, including Coriander in Guelph, ON, Muskoka in Port Carling, ON, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, MB, and Canoe Paper and Gifts in Hamilton, ON.

    I like it as a gift item, but it’s not something I would likely buy for myself (I’d enjoy it if I had it in my home as a gift though!
