Great gifts for a richer life
Accents that won't break the bank
If you’re fortunate enough to celebrate the holidays at the home of a loved one or friend, consider bringing them a gift that will add to the festive feel without breaking the bank.
Teleflora’s Sparkle of Christmas Centerpiece: This impressive floral arrangement includes red roses and white miniature carnations, festive silver balls, holiday-appropriate sprigs of fir and dramatic red candles, all arranged in a hand-polished glass bowl. If you’re attending a small dinner party, you should have the flowers arrive the night before, says Teleflora spokesman Rich Salvaggio. If it’s a larger event, send them two days before the party.

Fieldstone Christmas Birdfeeder: This adorable bird feeder looks like a tiny house, complete with a genuine stone façade with matching chimney. It also comes with minuscule flower boxes, a snowman and removable wreaths for the front door. You can slide up the roof, fill with bird food and invite birds to share in their own holiday feast. It’s pretty enough to use as a centerpiece or accent as well. ($64.95; 1800flowers.com)
