My digital class has introduced me to a creative, new site which could lead to some of the most creative gifts I've ever seen. Shapeways is a site which makes products from a 3D printer, and is based in Europe.

Just a warning - order soon, so you have enough time to receive them! Fancy materials take even longer - but if you're looking for the holidays or a birthday, or even yourself, it's fun to browse! Cheers :]
