The Pikaland Gift Guide for All Seasons: part 6

giftguide Howdy folks! For part 6 of the gift guide, I’m taking a bit of break from books (although you can see it’s not a 100%) to show you what other fun stuff that’s perfect as gifts for all seasons. This list is a little off-beat, quirky and it’s made up of things I know a creative would love. While I know that Christmas may be the biggest gift season ever, but a surprise gift anytime of the year makes the heart grow fonder (this is definitely from my own experience!) Enjoy!

Pocket manfriends by Nicola Rowlands

manfriends My husband always mentions to me that he’d like to carry me in his pocket. Not because I’m little or anything, but because I’m entertaining (I think). I bet he’s never heard of Nicola’s pocket manfriends though – they’re really much more pocketable, and I bet they won’t keep asking him for food. Available here.

Brosmind is a Barcelona-based studio founded by brothers Juan and Alejandro Mingarro in 2006. You gotta love all their projects (they have a few awesome personal projects, one of which is What’s Inside (pictured second from top) – a collection of 20 characters that are opening themselves with the help of another character from the SHE project). It’s amazing to see how they’ve created entire universes with their illustration; and I’m hoping for more products too – like this amazing Brosmind RV (available in their shop). Who needs a Batmobile when you can be decked out in illustrations in a Brosmobile?
