For those looking for gifts with a little urban edge, we take our Handmade Holidays series to the studio of Meyghan Hill in downtown Los Angeles. That's where Hill welds her Salvaged Steel & Stenciled planters, sold as plain vessels or with personalized graphics.

Each planter measures 12 inches wide, 12 inches deep and 8 inches high. Price: $125.

Hill sells her various designs on her own studio site as well as through the Angelo:Home store downtown. For those who can spend a bit more, check out her Fallon Salvaged Steel Bound bookend, $275, composed of stair-stepped marble sheets wrangled into brackets that Hill welds herself. It's a nice juxtaposition of the raw and the refined. (See photo in the rail on the left of this page.)

We're off and running: a unique holiday gift pick every day, through Christmas Eve. Check back Wednesday for more.
