Personalised Wooden Gifts
Let me introduce you to the stars of our show: the original (many say the best) DCUK wooden duck.
The biggest and most established family, our dynasty of ducks come in all sizes and happily fill an empty spot in any nest. So for a little newborn, choose a baby ducky. For a cheeky toddler, check out our ducklets. For a lithe and leggy young bird, try a duckling and for a proud and mature bird, try a fully grown duck. Did you know that a group of ducks on water is called a “paddling” or a “raft”, what a wonderful term, far more descriptive than “team”.
Handmade gift ideas
Each of our ducks are hand crafted, they’re all original characters and no two ducks are the same – we think that’s why they’re so loveable. Their solid bamboo structure, polished to a very tactile smooth sheen makes them a delight to hold and to stroke.
Our ducks have tall tales of high seas and far off lands too. Discovered in rural Indonesia, the original Indian Runner Ducks came to the UK back at the turn of the millennium. We believe they were the first wooden ducks in these parts! They proved so popular that, thanks to our happy customers, a thriving artisan industry has been created back in Indonesia in which new generations of master craftsmen are discovering their skills still have a place in the modern world.
With the designs and ideas for each character originating in our workshop in Devon, and the high quality carving and finishing taking place near the Indonesian bamboo paddy fields from which their raw material is sourced, each little bird has had a long but loving journey to their new home.
Today, our ducks have let their creative sides shine and we have ducks in welly boots, themed ducks, handmade gift ideas, natural, antique, spotty and pastel coloured ducks.
So what are you waiting for? Whether it’s a gift for him or for her, old or young, meet our flock and with new ducks joining the family all the time, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
