From The Shop: Staff Picks for the Holidays—Fine Gifts for Men and Women

Jenah Barry, Retail Manager of The Shop at Wave Hill, brings to the position the sensibilities of artist and floral designer. 

This Thursday, December 5, is Winter’s Eve, a night just for Wave Hill Members. With an extra-special 20% off for Members from the evening of December 5 through Friday, December 13, this is the perfect time of year to stock up on gifts for your loved ones.

For The Goose…

What woman doesn’t love jewelry, especially at holiday time? The Shop at Wave Hill is known for its beautiful bling. As a cultural institution, artisanship is important to us and it is a true pleasure representing local artists. Here are a few of our favorites:

Rhode Island jeweler Priya Himatsingka will be in-store December 5 for Members Night with a special selection of her elegant, minimal designs in fine metals. We absolutely love this gorgeous Lotus Pad necklace!

Emilie Shapiro creates whimsical designs reminiscent of wilted vines and leaves. Her elegant cuffs—handcrafted in long Island City—appear straight out of a dark fairytale.

Jennifer Rutheny’s Orchids necklaces are crafted in sterling silver and natural stones. Her Oncidium orchid garnet necklace is definitely on our wish list!

When it comes to the holidays we love a little sparkle, and Stephen Estelle’s gold and labradorite collection reminds us of moonscapes and the night sky—a stunning accessory for parties this season.

…and for the Gander

Good men’s gifts are a challenge, so we are especially proud of our selection of merchandise for men this year. Do stop in store and take a look at:

Juniper Ridge’s artisanal, wild-crafted range of soaps, teas, incense and smudges are truly special products, gathered by hand in the mountains and distilled in small batches to capture the essence of the outdoors.

Bellocq’s artisanal, organic, pure leaf teas are handsomely packaged for the tea connoisseur in your life. This remarkable Brooklyn tea atelier will be sampling their masterful blends on Members Night.

Cufflinks by artist Sandy Baker make a distinctive gift. Super soft, luxurious alpaca scarves will keep him toasty warm on a wintry day.

Finally, we have stationary and useful accessories, including sustainably harvested cork cases for his iPad and laptop, wallets, bicycle repair kits and more!

Seasons Greetings!
