1. For Children and the Young at Heart
The Cubebot, a wooden cube that transforms into a robot, will captivate kids of all ages, while Froebel blocks, a childhood favorite of Frank Lloyd Wright, inspire playful architectural adventures.
2. For the Lover of All Things Local
For the women on your list who like to “Keep Austin Weird,” consider elegant, adjustable jewelry designed locally by Ingrid Kuper (necklace pictured), or socially conscious designs by locally-based Raven + Lily that support HIV-positive women in Ethiopia.
3. For the Global Citizen
Our Museum Shop Manager takes special initiative and often travels to find unique Fair Trade items from around the globe, such as Gala Scarves made in Spain from recycled plastic bags, and colorful felt garlands and scarves by Distinctly Himalayan.
4. For the Man-About-Town
Stainless steel Stewart/Stand wallets combine contemporary design with innovative technology that blocks unauthorized Radio Frequency Identification transmissions to protect you from credit card and identity theft.
