Donald's Favorites!

Favorite gift ideas, curated by our President, Donald Strum, with a keen eye for artistry and functionality!


Scissor Set


The William Whiteley and Sons Scissor Set are best scissors I have ever held in my hands.  They exude quality and will be the only scissors you will ever want to use.

An ultra-sleek gift set, featuring a pair of 6″ Household Scissors, a pair of 9″ Shears and a pair of Threadclips, all coated in there super glossy, Noir (black) teflon coating.

The ultra opaque, ultra shiny Noir coating not only offers a striking appearance but also provides a super-tough coating, enhancing the longevity of the scissors, shears and threadclips.

 Ideal for dressmakers, sewers, crafters or anybody who is generally creative, this is the perfect set for someone to get started on their next project.

 The Wilkinson Noir Gift Set is packaged in their signature gift box, complete with gold foil detail, making for an impressive gift.

 Optional bespoke laser engraving is also available for the 6″ Household Scissors and the 9″ shears, adding another dimension to an already exquisite gift (or treat to yourself!).


Mini Pump


The Flextail Tiny Pump is a small handy 3-n-1 giant right in your pocket.

If you have kids, air mattresses, inflatables, and vacuum bags this is the most convenient product.  As the smallest 3-in-1 waterproof outdoor pump, TINY PUMP 2X measures 1.8*1.7*2.3 in, and weighs only 96g, as small as your AirPods pro. Slipping this little rechargeable tool into your pocket means you have an air pump, a vacuum pump, and a camping lantern. You can use this mini tool for multiple purposes.


round Wall hook


I love the It's A Hook | First Edition wall hook because it takes something so mundane and overlooked and gives it a fresh new and life with purpose.  Plus, it literally will make you smile every time you use it.  That’s right up my ally.  Why, because it’s a hook features a distinctive smiley face motif that adds a touch of charm to your space. But that's not all – its clever design also ensures that hanging clothing won't be inflicted with unsightly creases.

Now you can keep your wardrobe in check and your daily items easily accessible in a single, stylish spot.

Rob VanVarick's Disc Golf And Design Gift Guide

Gifts For The Disc Golfers!

Perhaps you’ve heard tell of “Frisbee Golf”, a sport where people throw plastic discs around in a golf-like format. Disc Golf has grown rapidly in popularity as an outdoor sport and a hobby. 

Our own Chief Design Officer, Rob, plays year-round in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, while Taylor on our marketing team can be found playing in beautiful Colorado! It is a great activity to do with family, friends, or even alone to step away from the design problem at hand, clear your mind, and refocus. Courses exist across the country and around the world, many of which are free to use.

For beginners, disc golf is a low-cost hobby that challenges your skills and gets you out in nature. To get started you only need a disc or two. As you progress, there are tons of different discs from a variety of manufacturers. They all have different flight characteristics and come in cool colors and with incredible artwork on them.

If you are going to buy one disc, get this mid-range:

Axiom Hex

If you have more power and want to throw further, get this fairway driver:


orange fairway driver disc


Axiom Insanity

If you want to round out your starter set, get a putter:

Gift Recommendations From The Michael Graves Design Community!

Here are a few gift recommendations from our wonderful Michael Graves Design community!

Megan's Recommendations!

First up we welcome Megan Evans, Empowerment Coach and Founder of The MS Stage. www.themsstage.com

My Meditation Album - The MS Stage Guided Album with Megan M Evans

11 tracks, each less than 10 minutes, to help guide people on a journey to connect with any symptom or issue they are dealing with and learn more about them in order to create a cohesive relationship in mind, body, and spirit.This album empowers the listener to lead a courageous life to creating newness. 

Megan's meditation book

My Favorite Meditation Pillow!

Comfy, machine washable cover, and you can even remove some of the filing to perfect your seat height. What more could you want in a meditation pillow?

I love Doterra Oils for sleep, stress, congestion, cuts, headaches - you name it - they have it. Some of my personal faves, Lavender, Breathe, OnGuard, and Peppermint. 

The incredible device for stroke, MS, and Cerebral Palsy patients. I have one myself and it has improved my walking so much. Sometimes I use it with the Michael Graves foldable cane. They work well together.

Josh's Recommendations!

Josh is a fibers student at the Savannah College of Art and Design and has a delightful eye for art!


record player


Audio-Technica AT-LP60X-BK

The Audio-Technica LP60X is a great player for those who enjoy collecting vinyls but are still relatively new to the world of record players. Keep in mind it does not have built-in speakers like some suitcase style players, so including bookshelf speakers might be a “sound” idea to round out the gift (I have the Crosley S200A-WA).


Alessi todo grater


Alessi Todo Grater 

The Todo grater not only serves as a great table centerpiece and conversation starter, but also boasts the ability to shred enough cheese for a portion in just one stroke! Those Alessi folks really have the kitchen down to an art. 


rectangle vase


Mondri Vase

Perfect for any modern art lover, this three-in-one vase is as clever as it is unique. 


MGD Kettle Pin


Alessi 9093 Water Kettle Pin by Michael Graves for Acme Studio

I don’t think there is much explanation needed as to why this is a great stocking stuffer. 




Pop Basil Candle

After having this candle for over a year, I still cannot get over how amazing, fresh, and unique it smells. It’s a great fit for the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, or anywhere I suppose. Not to mention there are a plethora of uses for the glass jar when the candle is gone.
