At Michael’s Gems and Glass, we have tons of interesting items for your friends and family. They're great for science nerds, creative folks, and history buffs alike! Here’s a look at a few awesome ideas to spread some good cheer.
If you have ever thought that agate slices are only rock displays, you are definitely missing out! These remarkable colorful slices can be anything you want them to be. Need a place to set your frosty drink on the counter? Presto, it’s a coaster. Looking for unique pull drawer handles to update your furniture? Small agate slices make the perfect complement. From simple to complex, agate slices are great inspirations for making holiday gifts. Or, give your friends the slices as they are and see the ideas they come up with.
This super popular jewelry trend is a hot item for holiday wish lists, and Michael’s Gems has it. Larimar comes from a single mountaintop region in the Dominican Republic. The mines there harvest an unknown supply of this remarkable Caribbean blue stone. Be sure to get some before it’s gone!
There’s always someone on your holiday shopping list who’s tricky to shop for. For times like these, fossil bookends are a great choice. Their fascinating prehistoric value attracts people who appreciate functional and timeless items. And they look great on a desk or bookshelf in the home or office!
Himalayan salt lamps are an amazing popular gift giving trend right now. Their soothing pink light is a beautiful addition to any room. The natural mined salt may help purify the air. Be careful who you buy salt lamps from. Some may be fake! All our salt lamps at Michael’s Gems are from the Pakistani Himalayan region, so you can be sure they’re the real deal.
People have used carved animal figurines as decorations for thousands of years. Their cute and fun designs are ideal gifts for adults and children of many ages. Check out our adorable figurines carved from stone and wood. These designs include elephants, birds, turtles and more.
