The first week of December has passed, which means we are smack dab in the middle of gift-shopping season. Don’t get lost in the crowded stores. Head over to our Museum Shop for eclectic gifts that are sure to stand out.
For those with an appreciation of Hawai‘i’s biodiversity and natural creatures, these one-of-a-kind hand-felted birds make the perfect small gift. Jenny Marion created the native Hawaiian birds in honor of the late Art School instructor Wendy Kamai, who taught adult classes in the vocational training turned creativity outlet We BeWeave program. Kamai lives on in these birds, as they were her favorite to make. One little birdie goes for $30.
The year of the boar arrives on Feb. 5, 2019. Gift your Chinese zodiac-minded loved ones—even if they weren’t born in the year of the boar—these red-colored items from local design firm Mozaic Designs to ensure they have a luck-filled year. The card goes for $7.95 and the shirt costs $24.95.
Speaking of the Chinese zodiac, gift someone who appreciates the more adorable things in life this charming collection of zodiac animals, which costs $70.
