I’ve been obsessed with fun door mats for a while, but these ones really take the cake. Or, in my instance, take the wine. Because I love wine.
It’s not only the fun-factor that makes these door mats so amazing, but functionally they tick all the boxes too. I mean, you gotta have a door mat at your front door, right? So why not make it something that makes you smile or laugh?
Or in my instance, gives guests the very unsubtle message that one should never walk over the threshold of TLC headquarters without bringing a bottle of vino with them!
Below I’ll give you a snapshot of the awesome brand that makes these fun doormats. They’re awesome.
Fun Doormats from Don’t be a Doormat
Tess Dunford and her partner Dan are the clever cookies behind this New Zealand brand.
It was during a two-year battle with chronic fatigue that Tess realised she needed to take a step back from the chaos. She wanted to carve out her own path and create a life where she called the shots. You know; creating her own hours and maintaining a better work/life balance.
I know this feeling all too well and have been in a similar position myself, so I’m thrilled to hear that the big decision to shake things up has worked out for Tess.
In terms of how the business idea started, it all boiled down Tess and Dan not being able to find anything remarkable in the words of doormats for their own abode.
“We couldn’t find anything but a boring, fuddy duddy ‘Welcome’ doormat for our home,” she explains. “And we’re not boring ‘Welcome’ kinda people. We’re more of the ‘Whatup buttercup, hello beautiful, yay it’s you!’ kinda peeps. So we needed a doormat that suited”.
A Fun Doormat that Gives Back
I love the variety that’s on offer from Don’t Be a Doormat. Whether you’re after something cute and charming, something funny, or something completely unexpected, this brand has you covered.
But what makes the brand even more amazing is that they give back. Proceeds from their doormat sales go to charity KidsCan NZ; they help feed, clothe and support Kiwi kids in need. So when you get something adorable for your own home, you’re passing on the love to someone you don’t even know. Pretty cool huh?
The good news: If you’re in NZ, picking up a doormat is simple. And if you’re in Aus, getting one is just as easy, because Don’t Be a Doormat ships to Australia as well.
