Looking for creative holiday gift ideas? A few of our staffers are on the job with picks from the Wexner Center Store.

Michael Fletcher, Design Intern

WEX Museum League Scarf by Maurizio Cattelan for Seletti, $65

"Each winter I find myself feeling conflicted as part of me wants to escape the frigid weather and another part of me loves wrapping up in my favorite scarves. The scarf designed by Cattelan and Seletti as part of their Museum League series is now my top choice to sport when braving the icy elements. Beyond its ability to provide warmth and comfort is its unique combo of contemporary art and football scarf tradition to create a contagious feeling of fun and cheer. A perfect gift for the art lovers, football fans, and everyone in between.”

"This is an awesome, reasonably priced little sequencer for musicians of all stripes! I’ve seen them in action in a live setting and for being so tiny, they are powerful! Reasonably priced for the punch, super portable and tons of fun. You can’t go wrong with Rhythm or Speak."
