To help our readers stuff their friends’ stockings this year, TSA is bringing you a weeklong series of posts on holiday gift ideas.

To start off I’m posting about a good friend of mine in Colorado, Jennifer Roberts, who runs a fantastic shop called Composition. It’s a storefront in the Belmar shopping center in Denver, though they also sell quite a lot of merchandise online through their nifty website. This is a great place to find some unique designer-friendly presents.

I’m loving the work by Joel Cocks. He knows his stuff. Here’s a snippet from his bio: When he was a bit younger, a boy at school made fun of Joel’s last name, Cocks, and so Joel punched him in the back of the head as he was walking away.. But generally he’s a pretty nice guy.
