Here's a fun and unique gift: A set of limited edition "rock stack" playing cards by Maine artist Alexander Turanski. 

These are high-quality cards, each with an image made by Alexander of rocks and rock stacks that he made.

From Alex's bio:

"I began balancing stones as a therapeutic practice, to exercise pure, raw focus and to dissolve my distractions. I have found practicing the art of balance is a way for me to be fully in the present moment through interacting with nature. As I engage with the stones I become as present as the stone itself. Everything becomes just me and the stones. I study each one to find its full potential as an element in a balanced sculpture. I often try to find the most difficult balance points as a way to push myself deeper into meditative practice and mind-body coordination. 

Though the final sculptures are aesthetic art pieces that can be exhibited and photographed, the act of building them will always fundamentally be a form of meditation, an activity to exercise my curiosity, and a way of finding peace through feeling and working with nature. 

I find that the ephemeral nature of these sculptures imbues them with real-life energy. They are born from the combination of individual stones which together form a single, artistic personality. When they fall, their life energy disappears from this physical reality, never to be built in the same way again. I love working with stones in this way to create representations of the natural cycle of life and death."
