For the impossible to shop for, the ones who have everything, and those on your list who seem to have seen it all, there’s A+R in Venice.
Feather Pen, $65
An everyday object made exquisite by the collaboration of Paris design house Eno and Maison Martin Margiela is perfect for the label-loving artist. It’s available in pure white goose or fluffy ostrich.
Beech Wood Tool Set, $95
Like beauty, utility is in the eye of the beholder. Score both with designer Jonas Damon’s collection of wooden must-haves, including an LED flashlight, ruler, screwdriver, and level.
Single-Rope-Knot Necklace, $125
Known for her braided bracelets, designer Tanya Aguiñiga’s new rope necklaces are tied, twisted, and dipped in her Atwater Village studio. Snag one for your friend who’s been knotty or considering being so more often.
Bell Alarm Clock, $65
A nightstand-worthy timepiece is a wake-up call to anyone who’s using her phone as an alarm clock. Even with a snooze button, she’ll hear Industrial Facility’s streamlined design and bold colors loud and clear.
Double Dish, $18
It’s a party of two: Nest these Joseph Joseph & Morph pieces and stash pits, shells, or any other unwanted bits in the bottom half. Separate them, and you’ve got two serving bowls ready to go.
A+R Store, 1121 Abbot Kinney Boulevard, between San Juan and Westminster Avenues, Venice (310-392-9128 or aplusrstore.com).
