This year, say thanks—for everything—with a gift that expresses how much your grandmother means to you and how much you appreciate all she does.
Designed by Cassandra Ott, this delightful keepsake platter is a touching token of your appreciation for your mother or grandmother.

Color is then hand-screened onto the glass and, to finish, it's fired and sandblasted for texture and a frosted look. A unique gift to honor a very special lady, this platter features a blooming sunflower or daisy encircling the word "mom" or "grandma." Sold Individually.see it here

"Up-cycled" from vintage saris in India, this gorgeous scarf is a patchwork of rich, jewel-colored pieces of luxurious silk. To make the scarves, individual saris are cut into strips and hand stitched together with others to create a vibrant blend of color. The scarf is then moistened, tightly twisted, and wound around a bamboo pole, creating a beautiful, rippling texture as it dries. Each scarf has unique variations in its pattern and colors, and can be worn wrapped around the shoulders or head. Handmade in India from 100% recycled materials.see it here

Designer Robert Seigel has special memories of childhood summers spent at Long Beach Island, NJ, with his grandmother. She always kept a special berry bowl on her counter, filled with the sweet harvests of spring and summer.
Now Seigel has crafted his own spin on the berry bowl, for the delight of a newer generation. Each sturdy porcelain bowl and saucer is crafted and glazed by hand. The cluster of holes in the bowl's underside enables it to be used for rinsing your berries, while also allowing air to circulate, which helps keep the fruit ripe. Place the included saucer beneath the bowl to catch rinse water or stray juice drippings.
There's nothing quite like a garden aflutter with wild butterflies in the afternoon sun. Attract your neighborhood beauties with this sand-and-water puddler, designed to hold on to natural minerals after water evaporates.
Its shallow well of recycled glass holds sand or rock salt along with a teaspoon of water. When the water evaporates (in under a day), butterflies are attracted to the minerals left behind from the hard water and sand/salt. Once butterflies know where they can find these minerals, they return regularly. Place it in a conspicuous nook to transform your outdoor space into an enchanted garden.
Flowers are such a special gift because their delicate beauty is so fleeting. Artist Stephen Kitras captures that special magic in a more permanent form by creating these ethereal glass globes, containing impossibly slender green stems leading up to floral splashes of color. As with flowers, each combination of color and pattern conveys a special meaning to their recipient.
Thinking of You (on left) evokes a quiet mood with rich, blue flowers the color of a deep reflective pool.
Thanks (on right) is filled with joyful energy, displaying flowers reminiscent of sunflowers or Black-eyed Susans.
A lasting family keepsake to give to or complete with a grandchild, A Grandparent's Journal helps you tell the story of your life.
Features prompts such as "Where I grew up," "Favorite Family Traditions," "What I did for fun," "My least favorite job," "My favorite ice cream flavor" and "A place I would like to visit." With space to write a short response to each question and two pages dedicated to holding favorite photos, this is a great way to get a glimpse into a grandparent's life, and hopefully spark additional conversations.
