Well, they won’t be your boards now, will they? That is to say that you have every intention of presenting a set of personalized cutting boards to someone you admire or love. Or, as is being suggested in this inspirational note, to commemorate a really special occasion. Because the newlyweds will have to get used to the idea of spending time together in the future family kitchen, the popular gift idea is to present those personalized cutting boards as the ideal sending them off on their way wedding gift.
Here is another thoughtful suggestion for you then. Let us just say that you have one or two kids of your own. Thank goodness that they have no intention of rushing off to get married. But there is one thing they may wish to do at the first opportunity. Having come of age, they wish to go off and get their own place. No matter how small it is it should always have at least what is sometimes referred to as a kitchenette.
So, when this day finally arrives; shed a tear you must, but do give your grownup children every motivation and encouragement. The sooner they learn how to take care of themselves, the better. And they need to eat as well. Give them every encouragement to start preparing their own meals, instead of always rushing off for pizzas and other greasy takeouts. As a going away or settling in present, you give your brave kids their own special set of cutting boards.
Now, this is not to suggest that you are giving your young adults any hints to move out already. It might just be that he or she loves spending time in the kitchen already. Or perhaps you would love to encourage him or her to do just that. Or perhaps even, he simply just loves nicking in and out of the kitchen to make his favorite bread, jelly and peanut butter sandwiches. So, on his twenty first birthday, script a very special message on his very own board.
The man in your life always loves spending time out on the patio doing the weekend barbecue. While most of the creative designs are quite elegant, there are also those that are rustic in their presentation, very much suitable for the manly and outdoorsy man in your life. But be careful what sort of message you place on his board. You do not want to embarrass him, especially when he has his favorite guys around for a barbecue.
Whew! Are we running out of ideas? Nope, we are only just getting started. But we are also running out of time. Perhaps it’s time to leave it all over to you. You have send gifts out before, surely. So, do use your own sweet creativity and ingenuity to think up some very sweet gift ideas for those in your life. Or get a set of boards just for yourself.
