For us, the finest gifts are not necessarily easy to find, and totally one of a kind. So, when we spotted the following items from the Tapis Amis collection by Dutch company Doing Goods at Details By Mr. K, our favourite one-stop décor spot in Vancouver, located on South Granville, we knew we’d hit the holiday jackpot.
“We call this item a gift hanger—it’s got a pocket on the reverse. Put it on a door knob, on the wall or on the mantle and fill it with a gift card or cash. We carry this item only during the holiday period, but the rabbit will continue till Chinese New Year,” says proprieter Andrew Karrasch.
Handmade in India from 100 per cent wool with a cotton back, there is also a panda, zebra, leopard, bunny, fawn, reindeer, giraffe, lion and tiger to choose from, $24 each. Due to the handcrafted nature of these items, expect slight variation in the appearance of each gift hanger (i.e., each is special!). Don’t live in Vancouver? They’re available online, too, here! —Noa Nichol
