2010 Artful Holiday Gift Guide from Momental Designs

Well it is that time again, when we are all racing around to find the perfect gift for each person on our list.  I personally am a fan of finding the useful but unusual.  I also attempt to draw out the artist in each gift I give…so this year my gift guide is full of some favorites:

Spongeables Pedi-Scrub – Okay so certainly not the most romantic gift,  I know but an essential for anyone on your list who is likely to stand, run, walk or pamper – so pretty much anyone 🙂  I tend to buy these in bulk because I am too afraid to go without one in my shower!!  Every lady on my list this year is receiving a Pedi-Scrubber!

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain – This book was my artistic bible growing up and came as a gift from my mentor Sue Hand.  Betty Edward’s simple text and instruction can teach anyone how to draw.  She teaches us how to really see….shapes, shadows, color etc.  Now who wouldn’t want to really see the world?

David Stark Design is on my book wishlist this year.  If you remember this post from earlier in the year you will certainly want to add this title to your yours!

Yellow Hobnail Cakestand (from the new My Sweet and Saucy supply store) is the just right color to suit most any decor and the sweet hobnail detailing can transition from modern, clean designs to lush and romantic.  Pile high with sweets or build up with vintage books and photo frames; either way this cakestand is sure to become a statement piece in any home!

Candy Darling Emmanuele from Kate Spade …the name says it all.  This bag is sweet, modern and stylish but just fussy enough to excite the romantic in all of us.  Let’s hope the hubby is reading…

Fuji’s Instax Mini 7S Instant Camera was a surprise addition to the list this year but our fresh eyes and more recent addition to the studio, Steph turned me onto the intimate vibe of Polaroids and I have been intrigued ever since.  This little white wonder is simply perfect for the photo taker on your list!

Ethel’s Chocolate is legendary here at the studio.  Based in Las Vegas this Chocolatier is all about artfully gourmet confections and will certainly wow any chocolate lover on your list!
