Beautiful Innovative Gift Ideas

Beautiful Innovative Gift Ideas. Enjoy!

How much would you love to come home each day to a fresh flower with a little hand written love note from your sweetie on one of these very creative chalkboard vases? Designed by Ricardo Saint-Clair and available online at the MoMa Store.

I am in love with this. It is masking tape made from washi, which is handmade Japanese paper. How much prettier would wrapped gifts look with these beautiful colours? Also available at MoMa.

This is the Boskke Sky Planter. It is a planter that you can hang from your ceiling. I think this is perfect for a small cozy place. I also think that this just might be the answer in getting my cat to stop eating my plants, although knowing my trouble maker cat, she would likely just figure out a way to hang from my ceiling.... These are available at Walrus in Vancouver.

UPPERCASE Magazine. I adore this magazine. Every issue is beautiful, inspiring, and playful. My perfect day would involve leafing through a pile of luxe magazines while sipping tea and UPPERCASE would definitely be in that pile. Find our more on their website.

I would love to hear about your beautiful gift ideas so please feel free to share!

  1. Truly love the design and wit of the vases! and relate to the idea about cat proofing the plants. What's up with that? Thank you so much for sharing these awesome creations. I truly feel the best creation is an act of kindness or something made by hand. Artisan made items well, carry the inspiration and energy of its creator, may sound crazy but I swear I can feel the difference of an object made with love!

  2. Hi Stephey,

    I totally agree. I think there is an energy in something that is made by hand that you don't get in mass produced items.
