Original creations are hard to come by when you’re living in a mass-produced world. One reason is that there are few genuinely unique gifts on store shelves. But another reason is that few presents have real value when we give them— and many have less as time goes on. As a result, too many gifts end up in the trash pile after a few years. So when you’re shopping for original creations that have a long-lasting, pass-it-down quality, these ideas from Ramon Design Concepts are the place to go.
Art Deco Vanity
Vintage style marries modern sensibility in this stunning vanity. Made from two woods that contrast beautifully, walnut and ambrosia maple, your special someone will enjoy tucking treasures into its six drawers. The upper portion features a round mirror set in a waterfall-edge panel that evokes style from an era that now only lives in our imaginations. This is one of those original creations that would be a sweet idea for the person who loves vintage jewelry or feels strongly connected to a much-loved grandma or aunt who lived in the early 1900’s.
Sculpted Jewelry Box
If you’re on the hunt for a gift that combines originality and functionality, check out the Contentment jewelry box. Crafted from orange and walnut wood, this sculpted piece has a simple design with an understated Alice in Wonderland feel, making it perfect for the quiet, creative spirit in your life.
Man’s Jewelry Keeper
This fine furniture-quality jewelry box is handcrafted from oak and African mahogany and carved in a simple design that will complement any decor. With 4 top compartments, 3 drawers, and a roomy bottom tray, your loved one will have room to store watches, cufflinks, tie clips, and more. There’s also a secret drawer in the back, the perfect place for you to tuck a special extra, like a love note or other token of your love, when you present the gift to him.
Desert Bridge Sculpture
When you’re looking for original creations that stand out, you won’t go wrong with the Desert Bridge sculpture. Created from rich Japanese red maple, this artwork is reminiscent of the stunning natural formations at Red Rocks in Colorado. It also has a “touch me” quality that will make it the focal point of any room, from office to man cave.
Whimsical Jewelry Keeper
Make a statement for generations to come with the Majestic Endeavor fine jewelry furniture piece. Your loved one will tuck jewelry, notes, and other treasures into its 5 drawers, 17 compartments, and 4 lift-out trays. With dark walnut stars on the front and an impressive lion design on the back, this gotta-see piece will be cherished as much now as it will be decades down the road.
You can find original creations that will grow in value as time goes by. Any of these unique gift ideas have heirloom potential—and that’s a quality you just can’t find in a gift card or a typical retail store. Each time your loved one gazes at one of these sculptures or tucks a love note into a secret drawer, they’ll be reminded of how much you care for them. This year, give a gift of love that, instead of going into the trash within a few years, will be passed down generation after generation.
