You don't have to live in Montana or Wyoming to enjoy or give rustic items as gifts. "Rustic" refers to a back-to-nature, homestyle type of design and architecture. There are many unique rustic gifts that can be purchased from wholesale stores and still look as if they came from a boutique or roadside stand in the Ozark or Adirondack Mountains.

Rustic dinnerware makes a great gift anytime and ranges from enamelled, tin-speckled plates and dishes to glazed, oven-safe stoneware. Tin dinnerware is good for use in the home as well as for camping. It is easy to clean but doesn't have a lot of insulation, so take precautions when you use it with hot foods. Stoneware is clay that is durable and chip-resistant after proper firing, according to Seeley's Stoneware. Purchase it in a variety of colours and glazes to match any kitchen decor. Stoneware is oven-safe and can go straight from the oven to table service. Find rustic silverware and other dinner items like glasses, napkin holders and place mats at the same retailers.
