I absolutely love when a product is beautiful, functional, well-made and unique. This gorgeous Castle Key from Anthropologie is all of those things. It’s also VERY affordable at just $12, which makes it even more desirable!

I happened upon it when I was styling a shoot where vintage keys were a key element to the overall design. I purchased it specifically as a prop for the shoot and I can tell you that although it’s a bottle opener, you will not find this hidden in any of my kitchen drawers. It’s on display in my kitchen as we speak as part of my island centerpiece.

This gorgeous gem just might be exactly what you’ve been looking for as you’ve been on the hunt for that perfect holiday gift. It’d also be so appropriate as a hostess gift, stocking stuffer, housewarming gift, or celebratory gift.

You could also unlock the magic of the holidays by adding some pretty ribbon to this oversized lovely and introduce it to your children as “Santa’s Key”.  How else is he supposed to deliver the presents to all of the homes out there who don’t have chimneys? *wink* Make it a tradition to hang the key outside of the front door on Christmas Eve so Old St. Nick can easily leave behind the much anticipated presents for your sleeping little ones.

This is definitely one of those amazing finds that you’ll want to have extras of on hand. Tuck them away for those moments when you are scrambling around for a last minute gift!
