(Photos courtesy of HRUSKAA)Intricately handmade with brass straw, these geometric ornaments by Grand Rapids, Michigan-based designer Melissa Hruskaa are a nod to a Finnish tradition called Himmeli—objects celebrating the beginning of the winter solstice and good fortune for the future. (Yes please!) At just $19 each, these modern beauties make a pefect gift for anyone on your list. Pair with an airplant, evergreens, or a ball ornament for well wishes that will last well past the holiday season.
