Global Gifts carries beautiful ceramics from all around the world. There are plenty of feline-themed options for the cat people in your life, kitchen and tableware for the gracious dinner hosts, a medley of mugs and pots for the coffee and tea drinkers, and even ceramic cell phone amplifiers for the podcast enthusiasts (yes, that’s a thing — can you spy the blue vessel that looks like it has a face?). Pottery from the West Bank, pictured on the lower two shelves, is always a favorite; The little bowls can be used to serve snacks and sauces or store jewelry and trinkets. The swirled Phonetician glass on the top shelf also hails from the West Bank — from Hebron Glass, a glass-blowing factory that has been in business since 1890.
