One of the loveliest and most unique gifts you’ll ever find: a “pirolette” of your (or a loved one’s) profile by Turn Your Head. We had one made of our son years ago. He’s now grown and has a family of his own, but his pirolette sits proudly in our home as a constant reminder of him.

The sculptor offers a choice of styles and of woods (walnut, maple, cherry),s so it’s easy to take this bespoke turned wood piece and make it even more your own. Note: you need to provide a profile photograph of the subject following the creator’s template. So while turnaround is quick (2-3 weeks), it’s not a candidate for last-minute giving except as a gift certificate.

We think it makes a perfect gift for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations or any special event. Or for yourself, as a unique portrait of the special person (or people) in your life.
