Her Pick: 2018 Local Produce Calendar by Maria Schoettler, $42
Erin says: My sister-in-law gave me and my husband one of the first editions of this calendar several years ago and it's become a tradition in our household to gift it to ourselves. Every month we look at what is now in season and think about how to incorporate each ingredient into our meals, which is even easier now that it's paired with a beautifully illustrated recipe book! I especially love how she positions the produce each month to make such beautiful groupings. It always looks beautiful in our kitchen and would be an especially great gift to be paired with a CSA membership!

Her Pick: Loome Kit by Loome, $25
Rachel says: As a fiber nut, I love this clever tool and kit. You can make pom poms, tassels, small weavings and more. It's the perfect gift for my fellow crafting friends!
Giselle is our Boss Lady
Her Pick: San Francisco Map Print by Brainstorm, $50
Giselle says: I've always loved Brainstorm's work and when I learned that they do custom jobs, I jumped at the chance to make a map of our beloved city with them. I told them about all the landmarks, neighborhoods and people that are near and dear to me. We came up with a color scheme (blue, orange, green and gray - also the colors in our logo!) and Briana and Jason went to work! The result is this map, which I couldn't be happier with. They really captured the fun vibe that I wanted. It was important for me to make a map that are for SF locals, but also something that visitors would enjoy and I think they really nailed that. I'm getting one for my house, and one to each of my 2 brothers who both just moved in to their new homes.

Her Pick: Custom Porcelain Inlay Ceramics by Knotwork, $25.50 - $49.50
Sarah says: Linda Hsiao of Knotwork LA is an industrial designer turned artist. This line of incense holders, jewelry dishes and tumblers were specially designed for Rare Device. I love the juxtaposition of the rough clay and playful porcelain colors. Any of these would be great holiday gifts for your creative and design forward friends (or just for yourself).
