Conceptual artist Barbara Kruger designed the 'Artist Towel' as part of a larger project.

The fire-engine red towel is emblazoned with a list of short, declarative statements, following in Kruger's signature style. The brief phrases are spelled out in capital letters, making it seem as though the towel is addressing the user in short, ragged and hungering bursts of longing: "Call Me. Cool Me. Heat Me. Meet Me. Like Me. Love Me."

All profits from the limited-edition design are donated toward the Art Production Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to subsidizing public art projects. If your significant other has an appreciation for art, why not forego the usual lingerie and chocolate in favor of a gift that does some social good?
