101 Art Destinations in the U.S.:
Where Art Lives Coast to Coast
Whether you’ve been to the Met 100 times or can’t remember the last time you exposed your eyes to any visual art form, get inspired by this stunning book to explore amazing examples of art, from paintings to cave drawings to murals to sculpture parks, all found in the U.S. Want even more brownie points? Pair this book with some tickets for a getaway to experience one of these destinations IRL.
Glam Jewelry Box
Are you or your loved one hiding bling in unsightly boxes or tucking away your jewels in a jumbled mess in a drawer? A lacquered jewelry box will make organizing and highlighting your favorite pieces a cinch. Choose from a white exterior with eye-catching Kelly green velvet interior or fuchsia with a rich navy interior. Classy enough to leave out on your bathroom counter or vanity and portable enough to take with you on vacay.
No matter what your décor style is, we always advocate for bringing nature into our interiors. Agate bookends are a gorgeous way to display your favorite books and add instant organic beauty; we also like them on their own as sculptural elements. Dyed and polished to emphasize the naturally occurring ring patterns, these lovelies come in three different colors.
Recycled Brass Planter
Fair trade, Eco friendly, woman made, handmade: this recycled brass planter, made in Kenya, checks off so many boxes in addition to being a simple way to add a little shine and glitz to your love’s desk or windowsill. Pot it with a succulent for a low-maintenance, long lasting plant that even the blackest thumb can manage.
Aurora Grace Hand-Painted Chocolates
Anyone can grab some chocolates from the grocery store to surprise their sweetie, but these chocolates are next level charming and elegant. Made using sustainable sourced chocolate and painted by hand, Aurora Grace’s bonbons come in flavors like peanut butter salted pretzel, strawberry balsamic, and birthday cake and are almost too pretty to eat!
Private Cooking or Baking Class
Give the gift that keeps on giving: a private cooking class for two! Beyond being a fun date night that breaks the typical dinner-and-a-movie routine, you’ll be cultivating new skills that translate into delicious meals and snacks for years to come. Google your city’s options or try a service like Cozymeal that will pair you with top local chefs.
