As we sink deeper into the winter and the holidays quickly approach, it’s the best time to think about finding gifts for loved ones in your life. Nothing says you care quite like a handmade gift. Whether it be a birthday, holiday, or any occasion; a handmade gift elevates the experience and is a far more personal gesture than something mass-produced. Handmade gifts have history, you can see the time and effort that went into creating the work, and feel the connection to the artist.
Give a One of a Kind Gift
Giving a one-of-a-kind gift this season is the perfect way to honor the unique people in your life. One-of-a-kind items are inherently unique, they’re impossible to find anywhere else, you’ll be gifting an experience that can’t be recreated. The majority of our offerings at Remarkable Things are one-of-a-kind, and can only be found in our store and our One of a Kind Gift Shop.
A favorite one-of-a-kind item comes from our large collection of Basin Reclaimed wall art – each piece is created from recycled materials into beautiful and sustainable wall art. Most feature peaceful moonlit ski slopes and mountain roads, perfectly encapsulating wintertime in Vermont. Discover even more Handmade Art & Sculpture from Stowe, Vermont’s best art gallery!
Another favorite one-of-a-kind artist is Terri Logan. She creates unique and distinct handmade jewelry from hand selecting each gem and river stone to creating clasps and closures. No two pieces or stones are ever the same, each piece is entirely individual and one-of-a-kind. The attention to detail in Terri’s jewelry is unmatched and is immediately noticeable when wearing her pieces. Recently, Terri has gotten into the winter spirit creating a new snow-themed necklace design. This design features a snowflake patterned gemstone suspended from a handmade silver chain. The perfect accent piece to carry you through the coming months of snowfall.
