Time to Shop for the Holidays – or Just for You

I’m happy to announce that the new La Vie Rustic Cutting Boards and Serving Platters are ready to pack and ship, just in time to get a head start on holiday gifts. The boards, artisan milled and crafted in Northern California from pistachio, California Black Walnut, English Walnut and olive wood, make a beautiful and useful gift for anyone who loves to cook and present beautiful food –think cheeses, charcuterie, tarts – in a stylish, sustainable way.


Due to the terrible wildfires in Napa, we were unable to get the Rancho Gordo Royal Corona Beans for our popular White Bean and Winter Savory Soup Set, but now they are available. Our soup sets, a combination of beans, herbs, artisan salts, fresh bay leaves and full color recipe card make an excellent gift.

For anyone who would like to garden, our classic Potager Garden Set with Maps makes a thoughtful gift. With 13 individual packets of vegetable seeds (well, one packet of flower seeds, but they are edible flowers) 13 zinc garden stakes and three large garden maps, one for each season, all the gardener will need is at least 12 square feet of soil in a sunny location. We even offer a Children’s Kitchen Garden Set with six packets of large, child friendly seeds and full instruction cards with botanical, historical, planting, and harvest information.





It’s not too early to think about holiday cards. La Vie Rustic’s Letter-press printed Joyeux Noel cards, packed 12 to a box with matching envelopes, and blank inside make an unusual and special greeting card. The vintage letters were hand-set by a master printer in Northern California.
