PSFK’s Gift Guide: Art & Decor

Whether they're muses or vehicles to your recipient's next big inspiration, you'll be glad you gave these.

Practically every object we write about here at PSFK could be considered a work of functional art. But what about pieces that meet the more classical definition? The items in our Art & Decor  category are living ideas, put to their fullest, most uncompromising execution. They are also springboards to creativity, whether they provide the ways and means or just the inspiration. They’re perfect for the creative person in your life looking for a new medium, whether it’s GIFs, tablet art, or baking.


For those looking to give the gift of art from an actual gallery, expect to see any cutting-edge GIFs displayed in Giphoscopes in the coming years. These appealing, slightly steampunk crank-operated machines, which are still custom-made to order, allow you to engage physically with the most seemingly unphysical of artwork. If your recipient is fond of sculpture, paints figurines, or is just an expert at making the physical world around them better, the ultimate gift for them is the Digitizer 3D Scanner. This device allows you to easily capture and modify models of any object you have around your home – no additional skills or experience needed.


For those who appreciate an open-ended gift, the Chapa Large x BOICUT poster can be either displayed as a limited-edition work of art or folded into an inexpensive lampshade, mask or sculpture. Meanwhile, the LEGO architecture studio, with over 1200 bricks and inspirational essays from renowned architects, makes playing with shape and form fun and easy with a beloved childhood medium.

Check out more of our favorite art/decor gifts here, and be sure to explore PSFK’s Gift Guide for more ideas.
