My very OWN picks from Elsewares :)

Ghost Candelabra - This etched acrylic candelabra is totally awesome. It features a 19th century antique silhouette on a modern form, with glass insets that hold the candles. When lit, the candles (not included) illuminate the etched patterns and cast changing shadows. Folds flat for storage. Measures 12 1/2" x 9 3/4". $65.00

Egglings - The best gifts come in small packages! These ceramic EGGLINGS look and feel just like real eggs. Just crack one open, add water, and you’ve created a springtime oasis for your desk or window (even if it's winter outside). Each comes with a terra cotta tray and seed pack. Growing is EASY — plants thrive for months in their shell and can be replanted in soil. Sold individually. $9.50

Self-Destructo Candle - Now you can really burn your candle at both ends. A cool blue 50-hour LED shines just enough light for atmosphere. Replace the battery occasionally and this candle lasts forever. And if that ever gets old, just flip the candle over, cut the wick, and light it. In the future, all cool products will self-destruct! Made in Brooklyn. Measures 3" tall with a 3" diameter. $37.00

Modd Buckle - These sturdy fused-glass belt buckles are kiln-fired, sand-blasted, and (everyone agrees) kick-ass! Paired up with a hand-distressed belt in your choice of colors, they're guaranteed to make you feel like the coolest person in the room. Made in Austin, TX. Free US Shipping! Measures about 2.5" x 2.5" (organic shape) Ships in 1-2 weeks. $165.00
