A custom cutting board with a family recipe engraved

Gifts with handwriting, especially a custom cutting board with an engraved recipe, are conversation starters and are a great way to win Christmas, impress the in-laws, and generally show you genuinely care. Clients typically choose to engrave a recipe that is written by someone other than the one receiving the gift. Usually the recipe is written by a parent or grandparent of whomever you are giving the gift to. These are very powerful gifts that often trigger happy memories of the time spent with that loved one. They make meaningful Christmas gifts, thoughtful birthday presents and sentimental memorial gifts.

How to care for your custom cutting board:

We include a product care card with all orders, so whomever you are buying for will know exactly what to do. All natural wood products require regular conditioning and sealing. You have the option to add a container of our board balm above. You can also purchase similar conditioning products from kitchen supply stores in your area.

  • Wipe clean with a damp cloth. Do not submerge in water.
  • Re-seal with a natural, food safe finish after cleaning
  • Keep out of direct sunlight.
  • Not dishwasher safe.

Tips for gifts with handwriting:

When taking a picture of your recipe, it’s important that no shadows fall across the writing. If needed, take multiple pictures of different areas of the recipe and we can piece them together. For more information on how to take a great picture of handwriting, please refer to this blog.
