    Gifts For Every Budget

    The spirit of Christmas is filling the air while shopping lists are being prepared! We understand that this year, giving may look a little different for everyone as budgets may be a bit tighter. To help you circumnavigate the stress of the season, we have organized a list of gifts for every budget. If you find these gifts appealing, remember that you can take anywhere from 10% - 25% off of these prices by shopping during our Cyber Monday Sale!

    2. Redware Cookie Presses- Five different designs to choose from means you can separate these among the stockings or give them as a set! Perfect for holiday baking. $5

    2. 1720's Love Cards - These PG level cards use classical prose and poems to talk about the trials of the heart. Try our English Playing Cards for a post dinner game Whist. Though you'll need some game counters for that. $8

    3.  Shut the Box - Suitable for all ages, this is a gift for the whole family! The smaller 9 pin version is great for including younger players. Make sure to check out the 4 player and 12 pin options for even more of a challenge. $24

    4. Gentlemen's Bone Pocket Knife - The hand hewn bone handled knife fits well in a stocking hanging by a fire. Though if you want something with a darker patina, try the horn handled knife, or a lovely woodoption. $22
