These Pink Toothbrushes with Pink Bristles are sold in the MoMA Design Store (at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC) for $5.00. The toothbrush was designed by award-winning Danish designer, Andreas Engesvik, who is probably best-known for his furniture designs. You can find them in the point-of-purchase area by the registers, displayed alongside colorful earplugs, capsule-shaped pill cases and snow globe key fobs! Art!
Here’s another awesome Holiday Gift Idea for the art lover on your list who also happens to be a fan of David Bowie or Prince. Pay homage to Ziggy Stardust, David Bowie’s iconic persona from the early 1970s, or the late great Prince, with this modern take on Japanese Kokeshi dolls, which are customarily given as symbols of friendship. Each doll measures, 5.7 inches tall, is hand painted in vibrant colors, and is made of schima superba wood. Imagine the adventure these two could have together.
These cool little Dolls, which sell for $42 each, are available directly from the MoMA Design Store at the Museum of Modern Art, or online at This link!
How adorable is this tiny, painted wooden tree Ornament in the likeness of our favorite living artist, Yayoi Kusama? Answer: so darn cute!
Here she is posing next to a book about Kusama, which I bet is really cool.
You know what else you could do is thread her on a chord and wear her around your neck like a pendant. How fashionable! I may do that.
Yayoi (pronounced “Ya-Yo-E”) Kusama Ornament can be found in the MoMA Design Store and also perhaps Online.
If you are acquainted with art of Paul McCarthy, then you’ve come to understand that McCarthy’s art is centered in taking the familiar and banal and fucking it up a little bit, because that is how he rolls. Paul McCarthy and The Skateroom is a collaboration between the artist and the organization that supports non-profit projects that empower children through Skateboarding and Art, which nobody can deny is a truly excellent cause! Here, McCarthy’s provocative and socially critical art celebrates the skateboard as a symbol of youth empowerment and freedom on a deeper level, as proceeds from sales will entirely fund the building of a skateboarding and educational center for vulnerable youth in South Africa, led by international NGO Skateistan, which builds skate parks in poor, traumatized areas of the world.

Holy cow! How rad are these Rainbow Hued Tumblers from the MOMA Design Store? Answer: So Rad. I know you’re probably thinking that it would be too risky to buy these, because drinking glasses — especially fancy drinking glasses — break so darn easily. But while these tumblers look like glass, they are made of durable acrylic! Their teardrop-shaped interior has a rainbow effect that radiates from the base throughout the tumbler.
