Hunter Craighill's Gift Guide
Below is a wishlist of some of my favorite items — from both Craighill and elsewhere — that might offer some inspiration during this season of generosity. I’m always on the hunt for special objects, ones that stop me in my tracks. The best discoveries often wind up as gifts for my favorite people – objects that find a triangulation between meaningful, indulgent, and slightly unexpected. Here’s hoping some of these items resonate with you or someone in your life!
This is the kind of leash that makes me wish I had a dog.
I'm constantly searching for a pen: to write a reminder, to label my lunch in the studio fridge, to diagram a design detail before I forget it. The Caro Pen was designed precisely to solve this problem. With it firmly secured to my keyring, I always know I have a pen within arm's reach.
The miracle of horticulture, attainable in the midst of winter, in the convenience of your home. A pre-potted Amaryllis requires only water and light to produce some highly impressive blooms in just 8 weeks. Pairs wonderfully with our Cloud Planter.
I wear this to work every day, packed with my lunch and a few other necessities, strapped across my back so I can bike unencumbered. Water-resistant, comfortable, and handsome, to boot.
A simple modulation of a traditional lampshade construction results here in a strikingly beautiful form — and an easy way to update an otherwise olde lampe in someone's life.
The Puzzle that started it all, and still our most challenging to solve. Five of the pieces have to precariously align while you slide the final 'key' piece into place, which locks the form together. Is it captivating? Is it harrowing? Yes!
From the folks that brought you 'Untitled Goose Game' — We've long admired the creativity behind this new handheld gaming device. Introducing a crank as an input method strikes just the right balance between brilliant and absurd. And the build quality is a pleasure to behold!
I have a soft spot for simple, elevated storage. The narrow / wide scale of this piece makes it particularly well-suited for smaller spaces (entryways, bookcases, coffee tables) and the materiality and sculpting can add a final polish to any thoughtfully composed space.
I love these brightly-colored Pelican cases. I use a large trolley version as my carry-on luggage. They're watertight, versatile, and bomb-proof. Does my lifestyle require storage with all those technical features? Absolutely not. Do these cases bring me joy? They do.
Have you ever been on a nice boat? Where every inch of the cabin is crafted for maximal efficiency and beauty? A well-placed wall hook can bring a little bit of that intentionality to your home.
