In the holiday spirit of supporting our makers, artists, and small-shop vendors from all over, here are a few in-stock ideas for thoughtful and imaginative gifts.

You haven’t touched a real pencil until you use a Blackwing. This small California company with generations of craftsmanship uses the very best wood and the very best graphite to create—in their own words—an exceptional pencil. We happen to agree with their lofty assessment, and suggest pairing this set with one of our leather-bound journals or hand-bound books.
This gift may be rather hard to wrap up and give away. The illustrated instructions show how to invert the Winebreather Deluxe on the bottle and turn it upside down so the wine will flow into the carafe for ideal aeration. Not only is this a cool party trick, the wine will have 10 times the oxygen and thereby taste better. Designed by Norm Architects of Denmark, this gorgeous decanter also funnels leftover wine back into the original bottle for storage. So far, I’ve haven’t needed to use that particular feature.
Organic patterns from nature inspire the up-and-coming textile artist Emily Daws. Her muted fabric creations derive from the Low Country near Charleston, South Carolina, and feature rice grains, bird’s feet, tea leaves, Spanish moss and more. Made of washable linen and cotton, these elegant stockings also feature a whimsical cotton pom-pom. Available in store only!
