The Eames House Of Cards is a series of interlocking cards depicting what Charles called 'The good stuff',
first produced in 1952, they're still available today, find them at the Curiosity Shoppe for $35. If you have an MCM lover on you list they're pretty much perfect.
OR you could make some depicting your very own good stuff. There's a tutorial over at Design*Sponge to do just that.
- 32 images that you love
- a printer
- 3 sheets of photo quality ink jet paper
- 3 pieces of 8.5” x 11” cardstock

I'll be making a three sets of these featuring Teddy to give to his Grandparents this Christmas and a set featuring indecent close-ups of vintage V8 engines for my brother-in-law. You could do a botanical set for garden lovers, a food pornography set for culinary types, you could even transform your vacation photos; the possibilities are endless.
