Holiday Gift Guide: Home Edition

I can't seem to stop browsing museum shops. Often overlooked as a gift shopping destination, they're a treasure trove of beautiful, unique items, and it's easy to find something for just about anyone. If you're still clueless about what to get that impossible-to-shop-for person on your list, make haste for the gift shop at the nearest art museum.

Here are my gift picks from MoMA's e-shop, which offers discounts if you're a member.

Black lace bowl, $98. Designed by Talila Abraham, this handcrafted tabletop accent was inspired by lace handkerchiefs from Eastern Europe that were found in antique shops in Israel.
Octopuzzle, $125. Inspired by an ancient Arabian carpet and tile designing technique.

Carlo Contin's Satellite Bowl in black, $48. A smaller, cherry wood version is available for $38.
The Spectrum Photo Album Set comes with six colorful albums that hold up to 20 photos each. $44.
