In our 5-Star Buys series we spotlight popular Etsy items that recently struck a chord with shoppers—and let their rave reviews do the talking.


Grandma's molasses-stained recipe card—much like the prized pecan pie she makes each year according to its time-tested formula—won't last forever. Which is why more and more Etsy shoppers are commissioning custom engraved cutting boards to preserve their most treasured family recipes in their originators' very own handwriting. They're functional heirlooms and unforgettable gifts, all in one. Read on for one repeat customer's enthusiastic response:

SHOP: Personalized recipe cutting board from 3dcarving, $36

“I love this product and the shop! I’ve ordered two cutting boards over the span of about four years and both boards brought the recipients to tears! It’s so meaningful to have a recipe in the handwriting of a loved one. Not to mention I purchased this as a last-minute gift and the seller responded to me the same day, sent a same-day proof, next-day shipped, and delivered in two days. INCREDIBLE! I can’t say enough about how amazing this shop is—definitely buy from them!” — JT
