One of the most influential street-artists turned fine artists in art history, Jean-Michel Basquait imprinted contemporary art with his iconic word play and memorable figures. These three Canadian maple wood skate decks based on a 1981 Basquiat work "Untitled - Skull," were made in collaboration between the Skateroom and the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Wheels and trucks are not included. BUY IT: $550
Do-it-yourselfers with medium-level skills can turn leftover lumber into a cutting board by cutting it to size (12-inches-by-16-inches works well), sanding it, staining it and then sealing it with several coats of water-based sealant. Add shape and sheen to the sides with stainless steel washers and screws.
Vintage wooden bread boards have become more popular over the past few years, but can still be found for a bargain. Pair a wooden board with some homemade bread or an artisan loaf from a bakery. Wrap the loaf in brown paper and tie it with some butcher twine, greenery and a tag.
Encourage interaction among guests this holiday season by setting up board games on cake stands. As friends and family gather around the table, present them with a message made from game tiles and classic favorites to choose from.
