Be the star of every Secret-Santa party with these essential handcrafted (and gorgeous!) gifts. They’re not something your lucky gift recipient is going to spot at the mall—and you can happily tell them their gift was made with care in North America.
For the King of Cocktails Give the cocktail king in your crew something to smile about. The Mason Shaker got its start from a Kickstarter campaign, and Makers Eric and Josh moved on to make extra-fun accessories, too, from linen cocktail napkins to cool whiskey stones.
For the Holiday Party Hostess While a bottle of wine always does the trick, give her something that will last past the party. Say, meticulously hand-painted coasters that serve as geometric art plus protect her teak coffee table.
For the Trendsetter Any one of these gifts would be perfect for that friend who keeps up with Vogue, DesignSponge* and Refinery29 alike. The screen-printed tote was made for weekend shopping trips, while the Brass ZigZag Necklace will encourage her to zig and zag whenever she likes.
For the Office Buddy Show your closest office bud how much you appreciate their camaraderie with a playful yet practical gift. Whether it’s a coin pouch for their coffee breaks or a flag to remind them to keep up the good work, they’ll appreciate the thought. (Want one more idea? The BRIKA team likes to keep these sprinkled pretzels in the office snack drawer.)
For the Awesome Boss It’s always a good idea to find an extra-special gift should you draw your boss’s name (why not end 2013 on an especially bright note?). Whether it’s a slip-cast porcelain mug in a sunshiny hue or a dipped maple wood serving board, every one of these gifts comes with a story, too.Did you like this story?
