I’m always on the hunt for cool, original gifts and I think these whimsical globes from ImagineNations are something anyone would love. They were dreamed up by San Francisco-based artist Wendy Gold, who creates them by decoupaging recycled materials onto vintage globes, with designs ranging from butterflies to travel stickers to super heroes.
She’ll also do custom orders like personalized family trees or the “Marriage Globe” above, displaying a couple’s name, wedding date, and location. Gold’s most recent introduction are DIY kits for creating your own little world at home. My favorite is the genealogy set below.
