I think it’s fair to say that whatever the Mad Men season premiere holds for us, it is sure to be a visual delight. Here are a few gifts inspired by the mid-cenutury interiors at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. And remember, there is nothing wrong with giving yourself one of these atomic artifacts.
Vitra Nelson Night Desk Clock
We pretty sure we saw this George Nelson clock on Roger Sterling’s desk. This iconic example of mid-century modern design is both functional and a geometric work of art.

BEATS SOLO HEADPHONES
Your sweetheart is sure to fall in love with these bright red Beats headphones. Dr. Dre’s signature brand is known for its powerful sound and lightweight feel and they are even compact enough to fit in your purse or bag. Better yet, with every sale of Solo HD RED Edition headphones, Beats by Dr. Dre donates a percentage of the proceeds to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
PANTON HEART-SHAPED CONE MINIATURE CHAIR
Here’s a unique way to share your heart. The Heart-Shaped Cone chair was originally designed in 1958 by Verner Panton. This wee reproduction, developed by the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, may look small but will pack a big punch in the hands of your sweetheart.
OLIVETTI VALENTINE TYPEWRITER
If your sure you have a keeper you might want to splurge on this Valentine Typewriter, first introduced by Olivetti in 1969. It’s bright red body and easy-to-carry case catered to creatives who preferred to work outside the traditional workspace. Though now a vintage piece of machinery, the Valentine is still fully functional as a writing tool. If nothing else, this gift should yield some fantastic love letters.
