For the person who has everything, give an absolutely fabulous statue. The stone-faced characters are a great gift depending on how well you match the bust’s expression to the recipient’s character: be it whimsical or provocative, coy or stern. As a gift, statues have the benefit of being compact, easy to place, and adding a little la-di-da to life. Find the best antique shops and auction houses like 1stdibs.com
