16 Cool Gifts That Will Wow Any Creativity-Loving Person in Your Life

Cool Gifts

We know that gift-giving isn’t a competition, but many of us want to be the cool friend that wins when it comes to picking presents. You want to select something that’s out of the box—a quirky item that you wouldn’t find in just any retailer. We’ve got you covered with My Modern Met Store and our curated collection of cool gifts for your favorite creative people.

Finding a unique item is easier than you think. One way is by taking a look at trends. Action figures have long been on display in homes and on office desks. Vinyl characters, specifically, have made a splash in recent years by depicting icons of popular culture. Today is Art Day has put an art history twist on these plastic figurines by turning the likenesses of Vincent Van Gogh and others into five-inch-tall dolls complete with accessories that correspond to their life.

Looking for other incredible gifts? You’ll want to check out the design studio Nervous System. They are known for creating mind-bending jigsaws such as the Infinity Puzzle. As the name suggests, the fun never has to end because you can assemble it in thousands of different ways—including using either side of the jigsaw pieces in your construction. Talk about challenging!

Scroll down for more of our favorite products and check out our entire curated selection for cool gifts for everyone on your list.
