The ORIGINAL and ONLY solid oak, handmade, hand stained phone nightstand docking station valet needed for you or a loved one. Featured by Glamour and Real Simple magazines as a TOP GIFT for Father’s Day and THE GIFT for the person who has everything! Featured as well on multiple blogs, gift guides, and Etsy Editor picks, we are equally happy and proud to offer a premium wood version of a desktop or nightstand valet to hold your valuables by your side.
Our valets are sourced, assembled, stained, and finished by our two hands- NOT by a machine. Our Valets are made from premium solid oak, walnut, zebra wood, cherry, or purple heart, and can provide locally reclaimed wood for special requests. These are NOT made by machine and cheap plywood, they are made by 100% natural wood by our two hands. For more on our process and materials, see the About Us page.
Below we have broken up the description of our product into design, stain, engraving, and gift sections, but if it’s overwhelming or you just aren’t seeing the answer to your question, MESSAGE US! This is a full-time business for us, and our customer service is available 7am-7pm EST, 7 days a week.
VALET DESIGN & FUNCTION
The valet will come in 2 pieces, with simple assembly required to make it as pictured. (Instructions included) Manufacturing it in 2 pieces allows you to deconstruct the valet and travel with it if the need arises. This valet is not available in one solid piece and does not fit together tight- this allows wiggle room and expansion of the wood due to temperature changes for example.
This valet dock is made universally for phones (pictured iPhone 8+,) the bottom piece is built to allow a charging cable to come up underneath to be plugged into the bottom of your phone. (See Pictures) This will accommodate any phone that charges from the bottom, but this valet is designed to accommodate all phones- if your phone doesn’t charge from the bottom, you can still charge it from the side, or from the bottom and lay your phone on its side. The iPhone plus models and the Droid equivalents will fit on here but will stick up above the wood.
See this listing for how an iPhone 8+ looks: https://www.etsy.com/listing/598348834/personalized-desk-organizergift-for-him?ref=listings_manager_grid
This valet also has a place to hold watches- depending on the size, 2-4 watches and exercise/fitness trackers. We also offer a valet without a section for watches, so you are able to keep a tablet and a phone on it. Under the section for watches, there is a shelf for jewelry, glasses, pens, chapstick, or whatever you want!
Need a spot for an Apple Watch charger? See this listing:
We offer MANY variations of this docking station nightstand valet, including wallet space added, no watch, apple watch, desktop versions, larger versions, hooks for keys, holes for chords, etc. See our other listings for versions, or if you are unsure, send us a message!

ENGRAVING & PERSONALIZATION
We offer (pretty much) unlimited ways to engrave and personalize your valet, with the help of a laser engraver and an eye for design. Our options can be as simple as initials, slightly fancier as a monogram, a full name, an emblem or logo, a Father’s Day or birthday design, or HANDWRITING! Yes, we can engrave handwriting on your valet.
LOCATION: Unless otherwise instructed, the engraving will be on the front of the valet, behind where the phone sits, as in the pictures. If you would like it elsewhere, please message us or put a note at checkout! Other locations include along the bottom under the ledge, on the arms of the valet, the back of the valet, or the bottom of the back.
PRICING: Pricing will change depending on what is engraved. Most common engraving is 3 letters, anything over 6 will require an upcharge. Pricing is already reflected in the Father’s Day designs listed above as well as the handwriting option.
STYLES: Listed below and in photographs are our most popular engraving designs, but we offer the below and anything else you could think of. Please message us before purchasing if not listed below to ensure we can make it happen. (Chances are we definitely can.)
INITIAL STYLES: Choose between STYLE 1- Traditional Block letters or STYLE 2- Block Monogram, including the style number and order of initials in the notes section at checkout. Please be sure to choose a style, if no style is selected, the traditional block lettering (style #1) will be applied.
If you selected monogram, we will engrave STYLE 2 as a traditional monogram—the LARGE initial in the middle is the LAST NAME- so please note very clearly the initial order you would like. To be safe, put their full name in the notes section to dispel any errors (e.g. John Richard Smith—would turn out on the monogram JSR.) if you have any questions or doubts, feel free to contact us. Best bet? Put their full name in the notes!
STYLE 3 NOTE: Two initials with a heart in the middle. For example, if it is Johnny Loves Sarah, you select Style 3, and you put in the notes JS or J (Heart) S or anything to indicate the two letters you want. An alternative to this is an ampersand (&,) let us know which you’d prefer.
STYLE 4 FATHER’S DAY: See the attached photo of common Father's Day designs, this price point refers to any design WITHOUT names.
STYLE 5 Father’s Day NAMES: This price is for the option to customize your valet with names on the valet. If you purchase this style, please put notes in at checkout with names.
STYLE 6: HANDWRITING: We will contact you after checkout with instructions for providing us with handwriting for engraving.
**Add your initials to the notes section at checkout. If no initials are entered, we will attempt to reach you two times. If unsuccessful, we will cancel the order and issue a refund. **

Once we ship your order and send you tracking information, we have fulfilled our responsibility. If an item is taking longer than expected, it fall on the USPS and the buyer. We ship to the address the buyer puts on the order, and are not responsible for address changes after shipping.
We ship using etsy's internal shipping, so please verify/validate your address and double check before checking out. If you catch a mistake and contact us immediately, we can fix it if it hasn't shipped.
If an item says delivered and isn't, it is the buyers responsibility to file a claim with the USPS as all our orders include Insurance purchased by the buyer. We are not responsible for packages left and theft. If you are concerned about theft, put a note in the order before checkout, and we will make sure a signature is required for delivery.
We do not guarantee shipping Windows once we ship the items. We do guarantee out processing time, but once the item is shipped in the method the buyer selected, we are not responsible for delays. This includes customs with international orders.
If for some reason the item is returned to us through a Postal error, we will resend but are not responsible for additional shipping charges. We will be happy to resend it, but the shipping charges will fall on the buyer. We typically send an etsy conversation followed by a direct email to the address on the account to inform of the returned package.
As stated above, we use etsy's internal shipping service, so all shipments are calculated by your zip code, the weight of the products, and handling fees. We will combine shipping in one box, and if there is an overpayment, we will refund the overages.
We ship to the 228 countries etsy ships to. We are not responsible for any tariffs, custom fees, or import duties associated with orders. It is the responsibility of the buyer to research associated fees with international orders before purchasing. Our standard shipping rules apply here as well with tracking- once the order is shipped from here, it is completely out of our control. Delays are to be expected, and not a reason for a refund or canceled order. Items have been delayed by customs before, and are not a reason to cancel the order or for us to issue a refund. If the item is returned to us after not passing thru customs, we can send to another address at the buyer's expense. If the item is returned due to postal error, we will resend as with domestic orders, at the expense of the buyer.

Due to the handmade manner of assembly, there can be slight visual defects. Each of our valets are made from upcycled and reclaimed wood, which will contain natural defects.
