3. Personalized Bird Feeder Christmas Gift
This cedar wood bird feeder is handcrafted in the USA from genuine aromatic cedar, and includes a custom inscription.

16. Elegant Wood Coffee Maker
The Clive Stand provides perfect pour-over coffee with a touch of class and elegance. From the manufacturer:
We were looking for a beautiful pourover stand to add to our brewing equipment offerings, but the options left us wanting. We set out to design an iconic, beautiful stand made by a local craftsman that would stand the test of time.
We are proud to introduce the Clive Stand, a culmination of several months of design and prototyping with Delaney Kelly of Carthagh Craft & Design.
The stand is made of salvaged Oregon Walnut that was too small for other purposes and headed for the burn pile. We strived for a design aesthetic that is clean and functional with a focus on composition.
