'Tis the season for gift giving! Whether it’s for your workplace’s white elephant gift exchange or showing your loved ones your appreciation and gratitude, finding meaningful, beautiful pieces can be challenging. Luckily, we have five tips for finding your perfect present at Oxford Treehouse Gallery this season…
White Elephant / Secret Santa
These can be a little tricky. Finding something that anyone could love (and actually keep) while still keeping it within a certain budget can be overwhelming. Here in Mississippi (and, let’s face it, the South in general), people love a good self-reflective pieces about our region. We love these Laurin Stennis Southern-fried block prints featuring beloved writers and well known quotes.
Well, obviously, jewelry is a really great gift for any lady (or whomever!). Our friend, Trapp Tischner, owner of Tisch Jewelry Werks, creates special pieces that range from simple tassel earrings to bold and bedazzled necklaces.
If you have a special sportsman (or woman!) in your life who loves the quietude of fly fishing, then David Rawlinson is the artist for you. His colorful and whimsical watercolor paintings are perfect reminders of being out in nature.
Many of the contributors to #OTGhomeandheART have focused a lot on how many useful artisanal pieces that we have here at the Gallery. From Walter’s hand forged cheese knives and ornament hangers to our always useful (and available!) tea towels, we like to have a great collection of pieces that serve multiple purposes. We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention Andrew McIntyre’s beautiful ceramics— especially this gorgeous ceylon bowl!
The Person Who Has Everything
Everyone has at least one person in their lives who just has everything. These individuals are true curve balls when it comes to buying gifts around this time of year. May we suggest we fell in love with Stacey Johnson’s ceramic sculpture, Captain of Good, when we hosted the South Mississippi Art League earlier this year. Now we have a few of her ceramic faces that are perfect for hanging on a wall or displaying on a counter or dresser space.
