Who's on your gift list this holiday season?

For the holidays, you strive to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. However, there are always some folks on that list who it's challenging to find that "special something" for. The holiday clock is ticking, so here are some of our favourite things that we will be gifting to some lucky folks on our lists. We betcha one or more of these could end your angst. So sit back, relax and enjoy the season without all the stress!

Micro Deer – "Any member of this year’s Herd is a piece that is pretty easy to interpret. The geometric design appeals to those with a discerning eye for details, while the sculptural shape of a white-tailed deer speaks to nature lovers. Detail-oriented people on your list will appreciate the scale and proportions, and the way light creates shadows on the 'face'. Plus, it’s made from concrete, and concrete is very cool. I am planning to pair these with gift cards, to cover off several teenagers on our list." -- Steve

Rock Bottom Vessel - “The gift for wine lovers, foodies, and anyone looking for functional art that’s a conversation starter. Who doesn't love chatting about the bygone days of chemistry class? The Rock Bottom Vessel looks amazing both empty and full. (Especially full!) Perfect for the people that are so tough to buy for – everyone will appreciate a vessel to hold their favourite concoction, and even those you've previously gifted with a Rock Bottom. What’s better than one Rock Bottom? Two! Now you don't have to wrestle with the decision of gravy or wine! These will transform your everyday hot or cold beverages into something pretty darn amazing." -- Kim

Konkret Knife Block – “This year, I’m very excited to gift myself (and my soon-to-be-completed renovated kitchen!) a Konkret Knife Block. The Knife Blocks come in two cool colour designs, but I’ve got my eye on the grey and white one. I love the fact that I’ll be able to store knives of different sizes and makes, and still have room for a pair of scissors and a pen, which I can never seem to find when I need them most!” -- Cathy

Aroma Haus - “The Aroma Haus is an ideal gift for anyone who loves clean lines and bringing natural scents into their home. The Haus can be used with essential oils or incense sticks to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere to energize, or relax yourself and the family after a long, busy day. It’s also ideal for those who love to spend summer evenings relaxing in their outdoor living space. I use citronella oil to ward away the bugs.” -- Julie

So Much More Than Just a Wine Decanter...But we'll start there.

One of the simple pleasures in life is the sharing of wine with friends. It appears to also be one of the world’s oldest pastimes. In 2007, inside a cave in Armenia, archeologists uncovered fermentation vats, a wine press, storage jars and pottery sherds. They were dated from approximately 6,100 years earlier.

If a Rock Bottom Vessel has ever reminded you of time spent in your high school science class, there’s a very good reason! The glass flasks that we use at Studio50 are made of “science glass” – that is, borosilicate glass (often referred to as  “boro” glass.)

Ever wondered what the difference is between cement and concrete? Well, maybe not...but here at Studio50, concrete is an everyday thing. It’s not unusual to hear the two terms used interchangeably, but they are definitely two very different things.
