It’s the thought that counts. With that in mind, what’s on the thoughtful holiday lists of the design-happy individuals behind A+R? No surprise that one has faraway cities in mind, while another is getting hygge at home with his choice. And most on the team have seen the light, literally.

Ripple Throw
