To those of you who leave your shopping until the last minute either because you love the thrill of the holiday rush or you can’t figure out what to get that one special person who is always hard to buy for – or you simply procrastinated – The Laughing Dog Gallery’s special elves, Sophie and Argus, have a few suggestions from their own gift list that will help solve your holiday shopping conundrum.

Without question, Sophie’s choices include beautiful American made, handcrafted jewelry. Precious metals from gifted jewelry artists like Todd Reed, Alex Sepkus and Suzy Landa always catch her eye, and they will guarantee “wows” from that special someone on your list, too.  All that glitters in gold, silver, and platinum precious metals are Sophie’s favorites. And always a girl’s best friend.

Argus, on the other hand, prefers the more functional yet beautiful gifts for his friends and family. Perched on his cozy Company C chair, his tail wags toward the colorful woven fabrics of handmade rugs, pillows and throws. For the dog lover on your list, check out Argus’s fun Black Dog Cookie Jar and the Cracker Dog hand-painted ceramic serving pieces. And his favorite glass heart paperweights by Lisa Aronzon–fabulous and fun!

Another holiday favorite from Sophie’s picks are Stuart Abelman’s iridescent perfume bottles. Distinguished by optical brilliance and rich colors, these uniquely shaped, hand-blown glass bottles are in a class all their own – a beautiful touch of affordable luxury for someone special on your list.

From American-made crafts to beautiful glass art, sculptures and jewelry, The Laughing Dog Gallery promises to deliver the joy and the wows, just ask Sophie and Argus or any of our knowledgeable staff. They’re here to help spread holiday cheer with unique works of art for the perfect holiday start.

From our family to yours, we wish you good cheer.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
