The holidays are quickly approaching and, if you’re anything like me, you have a really hard time figuring out what to get for people.

Parents. I’ve known them my whole life, so why is it so hard to find something for them? Dads are the number one hardest demographic to shop for, in my opinion. I try not to repeat gifts, which has resulted in me actually making presents for the last year or so. It is hard to find the time to create these items. I can’t speak for everyone with a dad, but based on my dad’s interests and our location, I have narrowed down a few items that I think he might like.
Black Friday starts before Halloween and Christmas trees hit the shelves in September, which means by now you’ve been inundated with countless promos and countless gift giving options. This can lead to what I call “paralysis of choice.” I feel well equipped to help with this sort of ailment, being that I spend well over 40 hours a week getting to know our 30,000 plus items.

In a sort of arts and crafts alchemy, Pinterest users have brought to light great repurposing, hacking, and reshaping ideas that have transformed the way the LampsUSA creative team thinks about the company’s products.
The spirit of DIY lamps and DIY lampshades is especially cool.
It’s because of this creative spark that the team has decided to roll up its sleeves and do its best to practice what they pin.

America's best wood lamp finials are handcrafted by Picinae Studios because they specialize in creating infinite design possibilities using the natural characteristics of wood. Their designs highlight the natural beauty of wood, and create an artistic appeal that complements other fine surroundings. Each piece that’s made is numbered and signed, giving it its own identity with its own unique wood color and grains. They are cut free-hand, and highly polished to add depth, clarity and tactile quality.
The woods are selected for their color, grain and natural properties like durability, malleability, hardness and weight. Most of the woods come from local mills in North America, like Maple, Cherry and Black Walnut. Other woods used are Bocote, Morado, Ebonies and Cocobolo.
