Why Amish Handcrafted Tables are Perfect Gifts

The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us many things. It has taught us how to use Zoom for meetings with coworkers, family, and friends. It has taught us to cherish the time we get to spend in-person with our loved ones. It has also taught us to order gifts early so they arrive on time. 

As you look toward the holidays this year, consider the gift of an Amish, handcrafted table. It will not only add some extra beauty to your loved one’s life and home but it is also a great way to show your loved one how much you cherish and care for them. Here are six reasons an Amish, handcrafted table is the perfect gift option:

1. Each piece is unique

You would be hard-pressed to find any two pieces of Amish handcrafted furniture that look the same. The coloration, markings, and other natural characteristics of the wood used to build the furniture give each piece its own unique personality. Giving a handcrafted table as a gift is a great way to show your loved ones how special they are to you.

2. Sturdy furniture is a practical gift.

Tables are used by everyone in the household. You can be sure that your gift will be utilized and appreciated. If your loved ones have been holding onto a run-down dining table, coffee table, or desk for a long time, nothing says you care more than a beautiful, handcrafted replacement.

3. The Amish use quality materials.

The Amish make their tables out of the highest quality cherry, oak, maple, hickory, and walnut wood. This means their tables are not only unique and stunning, but they are also sturdy and durable. Handcrafted dining and occasional tables are built to last and to be passed down from generation to generation.

4. Amish tables are American-made.

Amish handcrafted furniture is typically made in America out of natural American materials. Purchasing handcrafted tables will not only bring joy to your loved ones, but it will also support American-based furniture craftsmen. 

5. A table is perfect for someone who likes to host.

For practical reasons, a table is the perfect gift for one of your loved ones who enjoys hosting friends and family in their home. A table can provide space for guests to congregate and/or share a meal. Plus, a beautiful piece of furniture is a wonderful conversation starter. 

6. Good tables bring people together.

The nature of a table is to bring people together for a meal or other sort of social meeting. A nice, handcrafted table can encourage bonding and unity among your family and friends. And what better symbol is there of the ability to reunite after a long period of separation by the pandemic?
