When I was a little girl, I had a porcelain figurine of a cat curled up with a tiny kitten. The precious item is so small it fits in your hand. I’m not quite sure where this came from, or if it was even a gift for me. I just remember one day it appeared and I cherished it through my youth. Whenever I take a trip back to Ohio, I see it resting on a shelf in my mom’s kitchen. With the shopping season upon us, why not give that special someone a meaningful figurine they can cherish for a lifetime? In fact, why not stop by Lladró Boutique on Madison Avenue? The venerable Spanish company has recently opened up shop in Midtown and offers everything from angelic figurines to out-of-the-ordinary treasures—which draw inspiration from a number of sources.
