Curbly's Make It! Mid-Century Modern makes the perfect inexpensive, last minute gift for an MCM aficionado who's down to get crafty. The downloadable manual is chock full of DIY projects to bring the aesthetic to life with design details. It contains twelve projects, including a Calderiffic Mobile, George Nelson Glowing Globe Lamp, Eames Coat Rack, and Mondrian pillows -- plenty to keep a crafter busy in the new year.
The $9.99 download can be delivered electronically to the recipient, but if you have time, I suggest printing out the pages yourself and binding them in a book or sleeve. Some highlights:
