Special things often come in small sizes, and La Vie Rustic has a host of small, but special gifts from a field of Monet-like red poppies to French vintage serving sets and artisan salts. They are all slim enough to slip into a stocking for a Christmas surprise.
For the lover of the French countryside and of Monet’s paintings, a bagful of red poppy seeds mixed with Bishop’s lace flower seeds to create a personal field makes a special gift.
For the cheese lover on your gift list, a small, single cheese size cutting board made from California pistachio wood accompanied by a silver-collared vintage French knife gives any cheese center stage.
If there’s someone on your list who likes quirky table-settings that mix and match vintage and contemporary, a set of of 4 French vintage knives or a French vintage serving set make an ideal gift.
