Jonathan Adler Whale Keychain

A good friend had a small housewarming this weekend, providing the perfect excuse to buy a fun and frivolous gift.

With all gifts, I like to give those non-essentials the recipient wouldn’t think to buy herself, doubling the delight of the expected. I gave A. a set of four photo-real Paris magnets, reminiscent of our travels abroad, but the next pal to host a bash or birthday might find this oceanic gem swimming inside her tissue-paper-packed gift bag.

Seafoam, cerulean and cyan patterned enamel forms a miniature whale that is framed and fastened to a metal key ring. The cheerful orca is a travel-sized wink you’ll see whenever starting the car or locking a door. And if you lust over Jonathan Adler’s geometric-printed pillows and decorative home furnishings, but can’t swing $78 for a photo frame, this artsy keychain is an inexpensive way to get a piece of his creative pie.

Visit the Jonathan Adler Minneapolis location, opened March 23, at Lake and Holmes in Uptown.
