A Season With Meaning

  • January 5th, 2017

Do good while gifting well with beautiful presents that multiply wishes for happy holidays.

'Tis the season for more over less, and in this year's gift guide, we're showcasing presents that bring more meaning to the giving season. Every gift included begins with an origin story. It's been crafted by an artisan or conceived by an artist, it's limited in number, or its purchase benefits a worthy charity, nonprofit or struggling community. We hope these tangible connections - the bonds between makers, givers, and receivers - will further enrich the beautiful spirit of holdiay giving.

Ahoy, mateys! Little ones will embark on a voyage of discovery with this delightfully interactive Buccaneer pirate ship play set. Each of the 23 charming pieces in this wooden set was crafted by hand, from the cutting of the shapes to the finishing and painting, by the craftspeople at Sevi in Tarcento, Italy, using high-quality materials and non-toxic and saliva-resistant paints. Sevi has been making toys since 1831, and is one of the oldest makers of wooden toys and games in Europe. $149.99, Houston Street Toy Company.

Special thank you to Jenny B. Davis for this great write up of one of our favorite Sevi toys!
