It takes a special kind of person with a special kind of house to make this stunning Eat Drink and Be Merry Chandelier ($4,800) work. Handcrafted out of vintage silverware, it is both simple and magical enough that it will never go out of style.

Impress anyone on your list with the personal touch of a customized canvas (starts at $129). You pick out a background culled from old newspapers, send a photo -- blissful lovers, childhood moment, family portrait, whatever you wish -- and wait until it is transformed into a one-of-a kind canvas.
