One word. Coasters. You’d never buy them for yourself, but they’re totally useful and they can be a real conversation piece. Whether it’s a thank you or housewarming gift, a birthday or professional holiday, a unique set of coasters can be the perfect little gift that shows off your personal style or reflects theirs.
I’ve discovered a host of truly beautiful ones that have made it into our inventory, but this set I found at Koromiko continues to be one my favorites. They’re totally tested too. I sent them to my mom for her birthday a few weeks ago and they were a huge hit. She’s already received a ton of compliments on their design and texture.
Here’s what San Francisco designer Molly McGrath has to say. “My work is inspired by pattern and form—a skyline, a bird in flight, a composition of branches, a snowflake, textile design and optical illusions.” See, they’re really just tiny works of art disguised as a set of coasters.
