From our archives (originally published Oct 2, 2007), for your gift list consideration…to see more, visit our Gift Guide.
I’ve long admired this vase… designed by Marcel Wanders, of course.
“this piece is created by dipping a sponge form into fluid porcelain clay. After drying, the piece is fired in an oven where the sponge burns away leaving only the porcelain in its place. In this way porcelain products can be made without a mold.”

This vase changes position based on the amount of water and the length of your flowers. Makes for an interesting arrangement when there’s several grouped together. Nice.

Rubber bands beautiful? As unlikely as that sounds, this test-tube vase seems to be so by the contrast and function of simple elastic bands that hold its three parts together.

Forgive me for saying so, but it seems like you don’t need a florist’s talent to make an arrangement in this vase look good. The very nature of the three ‘legs’ makes anything inside look like a sculptural focal point, which is good news to those that don’t have that artistic flair for flowers.
Designer: P.A.D. (Thomas Robertson and Eli Bonerz)
Available in Glossy Black, Clear and Opaque White.

Hmm, could this be a perfect gift for a wedding/anniversary/etc.? Send up to 24 of your own (digital) photographs to be transferred onto this glass vase, specify the personalized inscription on the base, and bam, you’re done. There’s the option of color or black and white photos, though I’d encourage color. They’re pretty spectacular. Pricing starts at $150.00 for a 3″x6″ vase.
Custom made by Jenny Gaynor in Los Angeles.

This vase shows off a stem or two in a lovely understated way. Having just a few cut flowers in different spots throughout your home can make the space seem more welcoming. (No need for expensive flowers either- often showing a single stem of a rather common flower does the job just as well.)
Stem Vase is a study in simplicity for a single flower or two. Blooms look fresh and inviting whether resting on the glass edge or extending elegantly above the vase.
Both sizes together make the perfect pair.
Small: 6″ high, $21.00

A novel idea…and well realized too I think.
“A Candle Stick Vase” combines the beauty and function of a candle stick and a vase into one. Its nostalgic look and details that resembles an old European candle stand will magically create a romantic candle light feel by placing a flower in it. Blow the petals away as if it was a real light! The tray can also be used to place your keys and coins. -mollaspace

This makes me want to get my hot glue gun out, though I doubt the end result would look as nice as these.
Molded from colored hot glue. Vase bottom is made of scrap pieces which have been melted down and dyed black. Water tight. Wipes clean with water. Looks like glass, feels like rubber!
May be used as a planter, a fancy waste basket, or a decorative container.
Each piece is hand crafted. Made in New York City.

Harry Allen adds on to his reality series with this pretty wonderful brush vase. You have to check out the silver version too. Take note it’s available for pre-order, so you’ll have to wait a little while.
Brush Vase was originally intended to hold paint brushes, but we thought filling it with flowers was a beautiful idea too, so we’ve included a glass insert to hold water.
Material: Resin and Marble
Dimensions: 12 x 5 x 6 inches
Available for pre-order. Approximate ship date: 4/25/2009

Like a slinky, except it’s made from cardboard and can be a vase, so it’s better (maybe).
Equal parts vase and plaything, this amazing contraption contorts into myriad shapes. The cardboard’s unique honeycomb structure makes the piece extremely durable. It’s crafted from natural renewable resources -with a high percentage of secondary fiber-making it eco-friendly, as well.
