When someone’s interest spans the entire animal kingdom, finding an ideal gift can seem daunting. Whether they love cats, dogs, sloths, or birds—the trick to finding the perfect gift for an animal lover is to combine their passion for cuddly creatures with one of their other interests. Luckily, My Modern Met Store carries a variety of arts and crafts, toys, and fashionable accessories that embrace the wild side.
These days, cute cat products are a dime a dozen. However, there are certain clever designers who stand out from the rest for their pawsitively adorable creations. The Tawainese brand Comma, for instance, has invented its own version of Jenga in the Big Wooden Cat Pile Game. This fun toy features 6 wooden kittens that you must pile on top of one another without toppling the structure. (Tip: Gift two sets so the player has double the number of pieces to work with!) Alternatively, for those that like art as well as their feline friends, Niaski has merged the two in a series of art history-inspired enamel pins. Dubbed with clever names such as Salvador Catli and Keith Hairball, these trinkets make excellent small gifts for those who want to accessorize on the go.
Artist Roza Khamitova is the driving force behind creative label Shovava. Each of her stunning bird-inspired designs is originally hand-painted before being digitally printed onto organic cotton, silk-cashmere, and silk fabrics. The Vintage-Inspired Bird Scarf, for example, is decorated by an abstract array of detailed earth-toned plumage atop a pale green background. Or, for those seeking color, the Nicola Shawl is based off of the eye-catching pattern of the beautiful peacock. Wrap any of Shovava‘s bohemian garments around your shoulders to feel the warm embrace of a bird’s wings.
