Browse our naturalist gift guide for a bit of help!

Even the most avid hikers have day jobs in the concrete jungle. Gift them a bit of nature with a Savvie Studio laser cut marbled monstera leaf magnet for their cubicle filing cabinet. It’s he perfect “plant” companion for low light settings. It literally cannot die… because it’s a magnet.

If you’ve ever heard your friend refer to themself as a “plant mom”- here’s their gift… because not all babies are living, breathing humans.

flower-arrangements-zine-illustration-collage-handmade.png

Because most of our shoppers live in the frozen tundra that is Northeastern Ohio, we know that you’ve got at least one friend who can’t stop talking about “that one time in Costa Rica”. Valley Cruise Press’ Flower Arrangements zine is chock full of fun and flowery collages by Ted Feighan. Now all you’ve gotta do is find a Mai Tai…

seed-paper-greeting-card-letterpress-floral-botanical-handmade.jpg

The coolest part about Triple Threat Press’ plantable letterpress-printed seed paper cards is that when you give a card you also gift a garden! All the recipient needs to do is soak the paper in water until it’s flexible, then plant and water regularly. The gifted gardener could potentially grow Dwarf Godetia, Lemon Mint, Maiden Pinks, Forget-Me-Not, Catchfly, English Daisy, Sweet Alyssum, Spurred Snapdragon, Corn Poppy, and Black Eyed Susan!

Whatbetter feeling in life is there than leaving society behind, hanging your hammock in a sun-dappled forest, and diving into a great book?

It’s part nature writing, part divination, and altogether a natural history of the Midwest as told through the time-tested structure of the tarot.

Gift Guide: For the Entertainer

If you haven’t figured it out by now, there are two steadfast rules of going to a dinner party: 1. never show up early, and 2. always bring a gift. Woah, woah, buddy… you’re starting to look a little panicked. Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. We’ll even wrap your favor for you.

ComeOverAllTheTime_Kickstarter__HilaryBovay2018-5825_1024x1024.jpg

This activity book is full of creative prompts to capture fun times with fun people. It's going to look so perfect in your living room, guest room, or Airbnb! Get your guests doodling and before you know it you’ve got a complete work of art!

Dinner and drinks will be even more fun with these Dittohouse rowdy lil' coasters talking your ears off!  Laser cut from 100% merino wool, each face is a little different and full of personality. Each coaster is nearly 4", and 4 coasters come in set. Take that, water stains!

If not now, then when? That’s the question you should be asking yourself about investing in some Prather Team record ledges & album stands. They’re just the best thing for your upcoming holiday parties. Imagine spinning your favorite holiday LPs, all the while their album covers sit on display in a “now playing” situation above the turntable. Everyone’s dancing, having great time… and nobody has to shout “WHAT ALBUM IS THIS?!” at the top of their lungs, ruining the mood. Yeah, that’s a cool thought. Make it a reality.


IMG_0433.JPG

What if the host doesn’t drink? When a bottle of wine or some bourbon wouldn’t be welcome, we recommend plants! Yep, that’s right… plants. It’s like a bouquet but better because it’s not dead yet! The best is when the plant comes with it’s own home. Enter Gina DeSantis’ ceramic and macrame hanging planters! A sturdy brass ring at the top makes this beauty indoor and outdoor decor… no need to worry about whether or not you’ll match the party-thrower’s sofa.

Domenic Fiorello Studio’s cast concrete candle holders literally light up a room. Set the mood of the moment with bold, beautiful, colorful, and exceptionally crafted tea light and candlestick holders.

Gift Guide: For the Bookworm

The uncountable places that a reader will travel in their mind thanks to the books that they read is enviable… but why shouldn't their own waking life be as beautiful and intriguing as those they experience when they steal away to the pages of fact or fiction? Surround your own bookworm with gifts that even the most well-to-do of Austen’s famed ladies would make eyes at with our carefully curated gift guide below.


Cocktails_frameongrey.jpg

Is you library more of a den, and by “den” we mean “bar”? Adorn the walls of whatever room you read in with Sorry Studio’s Cocktails of the Literate screen print. A toast to the great literary minds of the past century, this 12” x 18” four-color artwork is part of a limited edition run of prints. To literacy and libations!


Folktales and Legends.jpg

Belt Publishing’s illustrated, large-print book, “Folktales and Legends of the Middle West” by Edward McClelland is a series of eloquently-phrased stories for campfires.

Liz Sabo microsuede throw pillows make reading nooks cute and cozy. The super soft cloth is screenprinted with a variety of playful prints, creating an ideal atmosphere for indulging yourself in a good book. We recommend investing in a matching set… that way you can read with a friend!

il_fullxfull.1235261697_3s81.jpg

What goes better with a day of reading than a hot cup of tea? How about a candle of a similar persuasion? Sweet Dish & darling’s Earl Grey soy wax candle is the perfect candle for turning a stressful day into a relaxing dream. A prelude of charred grapefruit and lemon notes lures you in, while secondary notes of bergamot and black tea round out the end. Our favorite part is the wood wick, which crackles like a tiny campfire. Pick from a 6 oz or 16 oz amber jar container.

Cedar soap decks from Prather Team have arrived! These untreated wood platforms elevate soaps from bath and shower ledge puddles that would cause gross growth... and to top it off, the untreated cedar is naturally resistant to bacteria and fungus!

New Vendors This November

We’re wildly excited to share news that we’re growing the Threefold Gifts family of makers! This November Elizabeth Lang of Between The Evergreens joined the shoop, and we can't wait for you to meet her. Before you shop their wares, learn a bit about the people behind the goods.


Between The Evergreens

Artist Elizabeth Lang creates abstract landscape paintings using watercolor, acrylic, and oil paints on canvas and paper. Her paintings are composed of abstract shapes and colors inspired by nature as I see it.It is her belief that nature brings health and wellbeing to our lives and is a necessary wildness in an often chaotic world.
