Given how much time we spend staring at online data and playing bad Buzzfeed quizzes, these Tälja Swedish Carving Kits may be just the thing we need to ground us. To keep our hands occupied and our minds clear and possibly put some spirituality back in our lives. And if not, well then it’s just a very cool way to whittle.

Tälja is the Swedish word for woodcarving and also the name of these special little woodcarving kits made in Sweden. Available for adults or for children (with a special safety knife and a band-aid in case of minor injury), the nicely packaged kits contain classic carving knives with thin steel and birchwood handles by Mora Kniv of Sweden, a knife case, 2 pieces of Swedish wood (a branch of juniper and a piece of birchwood), 2 types of sandpaper, a little vial of natural mineral oil and instructions.
