That Rustic Look

Today’s gift guide is inspired by gift ideas with a sort of rustic, old timey look. If you’re shopping for a housewarming gift, a birthday present, a wedding or shower present, or simply treating yourself to a new item that suits your personal aesthetic, these rustic-chic gift ideas are a great way to go.


iPad Cookbook Holder – $148 @ Lakehouse
Nothing could be more rustic than cooking by hand in your kitchen. This weathered-looking reclaimed wood tablet / cookbook holder is actually made from 19th century European buildings, adding a little history to every meal.


S’well Blonde Wood Water Bottle – $45 @ Indigo
Not everything that looks old needs to be old. Made from stainless steel, this double-walled S’well water bottle is perfect for keeping your drinks cold or warm for hours.


Rustic Melamine Serving Bowl – $36 @ Williams-Sonoma
Not every ‘rustic’ looking item has a neutral wood tone. Williams-Sonoma has an entire collection of shatterproof melamine dishes and serveware in fun colours like robin’s egg blue and pear green.


Letters Mailbox – $59 @ Urban Barn
I am very charmed by the Olde English stylings of this little post box. A perfect addition to your heritage home’s exterior, especially for the newlyweds or new homeowners!


Bottle Opener – $19 @ designhouse
It doesn’t get more rustic than this minimalist bottle opener. Crafted from wood and dipped in paint, this magnetic bottle opener uses a nail to pry open your drink without the cap skipping away, and can be kept on the fridge between uses. A great stocking stuffer!
