Brass deer sculpture (shown above)
Rudolph’s more dignified cousin. This elegant brass deer makes a statement with oversize antlers perfect for stringing with lights, trimming with ornaments, or⁠ for the especially ambitious, festooned with popcorn garland. The graceful antlers will hold their own, unadorned, come January. (Ornaments sold separately.) $695

mango bowls_10jul_19_004n
Andy Cole’s mango bowls
Award-winning woodworker Andy Cole (also a HoMA School instructor) created these striking bowls with wood from a mango tree formerly located in the museum’s Central Courtyard. When the tree had to be removed to prevent its roots from damaging the basement, the wood went to local woodworkers. Said Cole, “to make a piece from wood that has so much museum history and turn it back into something that can last for centuries is a real reward.” $90-1000

Socks

Brave the harsh island winter in these eye-catching knit socks. Not only are they super kawaii, the traditional split-toe design keeps feet warm even in a favorite pair of Locals slippers. $12.95

RainbowAndAnimalToys
Rainbow blocks, 3-D animal puzzles and animal bowling sets
An assortment of toys that appeal to kids’ sense of play and will appease the most design-minded of parents. Satisfying to stack and educational, this rainbow puzzle is ideal for ages 2+.

Wind up the wheeled bunny, set it on a path toward the bright veggie pins and try your best to avoid the dreaded 7-10 split. $12.95-32.95

Dr.SeussBook
Dr. Seuss’s Horse Museum
A newly-released, never-before-published Dr. Seuss book based on a manuscript and sketches discovered posthumously in 2013. This #1 New York Times bestseller is the perfect gift for the young artist in your life: imagine visiting a museum with a horse as a guide! Acclaimed illustrator Andrew Joyner created original artwork for the book with many a nod to Dr. Seuss, combined with full-color reproductions of pieces by Picasso, George Stubbs, Rosa Bonheur, Alexander Calder, Jacob Lawrence, Deborah Butterfield, Franz Marc, Jackson Pollock and many others (all of which feature a horse, of course, of course). $18.99

PrismMagnifier-Silo-01-DMPR

The rainbow maker. This delightful prism magnifier, which both artfully enlarges text and captures cascading sunbeams, was designed by product design student Daniel Martinez for the class Small Things Matter, a collaboration between Areaware and Parsons The New School for Design. $35

Trees
Mini trees
Happy little trees, indeed! A selection of tufted evergreens in muted jewel tones, some with sparkly flocking—group a few together on a desk, kitchen counter or mantelpiece over a crackling fire, and you’ll swear you smell a piney fragrance wafting through the air. $5-20
