As you know by now, we’re big fans of the small boutiques, the unknown shops and the stores carrying things you can’t find in the everyday department or grocery store. One of our favorite shops that carries unique gifts, talented designs from designers, rare trinkets and more is the Museum of Modern Art Design and Book Store (or MoMA for short).

While the Museum of Modern Art is a household name, the MoMA Design and Book Store came to fruition after the art museum dedicated a department to Architecture & Design. The MoMA Store promotes values of “‘Good Design” by highlighting the latest in materials, production, and design concepts from around the world.”

Whether you’ve shopped at the MoMA Store before or not, you’ll come to learn that this shop is known for its exquisite products celebrating some of the world’s most creative and unique designs and designers. Products at the MoMA Store range from gifts to clothing to items for the home.

A few of our favorite finds currently at the MoMA Store include:

The Half-Pint Creamer

This chic and clear half-pint milk creamer
would be the cutest addition to a morning cup of coffee or on the tray of Mom’s breakfast-in-bed. A best seller at the MoMA Store, this molded clear-glass creamer is only $15! (And we just can’t get over how cute it is!)

New York Then and Now

A photography book visually taking you through the thrills and chills of New York City and its history, New York Then and Now available at the MoMA Store would be the perfect gift for a history lover. It was recently updated with new events and occurrences in the city and features historic photographs placed side-by-side with images of the modern cityscape.

Magnetic Hammer

Looking for the perfect gift for that Mr. Fixit on your list? Or maybe your spouse is the ultimate handyman in the family? Either way, the Magnetic Hammer available at the MoMA Store has to be one of the most convenient gift ideas we’ve seen yet. Keeping track of nails while working will be simple with this tool!

My Mini Masterpiece

You can’t forget the kiddos! Presenting stimulating toys for children of all ages, we’re especially loving the My Mini Masterpiece miniature paint set available at the MoMA Store. The kit includes a wooden easel, primed canvas, three tubes of paint, a paintbrush and color-mixing instructions. This product is too cute for words!

Plus, for all of our brides-to-be, you can create a registry at the MoMA Store for uncommon gift ideas. Shop the MoMA store online or they have locations in New York City, Japan and Korea.
