Gift shops can be hit and miss. Sometimes they’re full of mysterious gems, twinkling treasures, and books that look as good on the outside as they read on the inside. And then there are the times they’re full of tat (unless tea towels printed with Van Gogh’s Sunflowers are right up your street). When we heard & Other Stories were introducing a Gift Shop concept we had little doubt what category it would fall into. The brand’s ateliers in Paris and Stockholm have each created a series of “on your way out” additions, from stationery to brass pots to bookmarks and leather cases. Each is served up with & Other Stories’s inimitably chic patina—think splashes of bright watercolours and simple design touches that will elevate your desk or home space in no time. They are, admittedly, perfect for gifts, but if there’s no lucky recipient in the offing? Treat yo’ self.
