Sensation Blanket by Zuzunaga

Think of this as a color field art piece that will keep you (or your giftee) warm.

This one, the Sensation blanket, is my favorite, but there are others as well: Intuition, Feeling, and ...Read more

Machined from a solid block of metal, it easily doubles as a paperweight. Do be sure to consider the Penpo Desk Organizer ($88) as well, as they'd make an excellent pairing on your desktop.

Nut Hammer

It's a Nut Hammer. It's a pretty smart idea: a removable silicone ball holds the nut in place- just strike the hammer against a flat surface and the cast-iron head will take care of the rest. The silicone keeps flying shards at bay and minimizes the mess usually associated with cracking nuts. It'd be an excellent holiday gift. Designed by Roger Arquer for Danish house Menu. Size: 11.75" l x 3.25" w ...Read more
