Holiday Gifts at The Museum Shop

Maybe you aren’t jetting off to Rome for the holidays, but you can still get the paperweight. Meta-souvenirs ($80, from two inches to five-and-a-half inches high) are eye-catching, handmade crystal paperweights of famous international sites from Beijing, Jerusalem, Paris, Rome, and Washington, D.C.  These make great gifts—who can’t put a paperweight to good use? Speaking of gifts, ’tis the time. And The Wolfsonian’s Museum Shop ’tis the place. We have great gifts at all price points and for a range of ages. Take the Cake of Peace, for example. It’s the season for cake, and it’s the season for peace. Why not combine the two with this spectacular porcelain cake dish-cum-sculpture designed by Studio Job ($960)? At the other end of the price spectrum are some great, new-to-us items, such as convenient and classically attractive Zip-Up Leather Change Purses ($32) in multiple colors. When you have no idea what to get those certain whomevers, you can’t go wrong with a nice bar of soap—and we have a great one. The architecturally inspired Zig Zag Soap ($24), by designer Pat Kim, is fun and unusual—and everyone needs soap (we hope). For jewelry lovers, we’ve got some striking, sculptural, polyurethane  pieces just in from designer Xanath Lammoglia, including her eye catching, limited edition Vibba Bracelet ($480) and her Rossé Necklace ($300). Not enough ideas? Come in and visit, or browse our website, where you can order directly. And we’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: You can’t go wrong with the gift of a Wolfsonian membership or a gift certificate to The Museum Shop.
