Unexpected Gifts from Boutique Brands Around the Globe
We’ve assembled a list of useful gifts made by local artisans from some of the world's most exciting destinations.
The key to gift-giving is to start with objects that are simple, straightforward and utterly practical: a hat, some skin care, perhaps a house slipper. While these items may seem too dull to excite your recipient, the key step is to find their most unique iterations.
While scouring stores and online shops for the perfect body brush may seem intimidating, we’ve discovered a shortcut to success: niche boutique brands from far-flung places that source and make their products locally.
Each piece has the spirit of handcraft and offers a little something unexpected. Drawing inspiration from local history and heritage or nearby landscapes helps invigorate ordinary gifts with a sense of spectacular travel.
