Searching for gift ideas for the soon-to-be graduate in your life (or anyone else, for that matter)?
Here's an idea: Lost Crates is a subscription service that delivers design-minded goods like kitchen wares and stationery directly to the recipient's door. Like a CSA box for design aficionados, Lost Crates can be sent monthly or quarterly, and themes like Eco, Foodie, and Housewares ensure you'll find a crate to please even the most choosy person on your list. Ideas for new graduates include the stylish Letterpress Desk Calendar (perfect for the college freshman) or a chic Coffee Maker (for students burning the midnight oil). Prices are reasonable, starting at $20 for Petite Stationery Crate, and goods are also available a la carte.
N.B. Lost Crates is offering $10 to the first 100 Remodelista readers who order a crate by subscribing and using the code REMOD10.
