Forget plastic cutting boards- a high quality, handmade wood (maple, cherry, or walnut) board will last much longer and looks much more stylish. The personalized engraving makes it a great wedding present or housewarming gift and you can add any design or name you need. The 3/4" thickness protects surfaces from cuts, so there's no need to worry about ruining your countertops.
