Marimo Moss Ball in a Repurposed Light Bulb ($17.50-$19.50).This cute little moss ball in an upcycled light bulb is a living algae that is so low maintenance even the blackest of thumbs can tend to it's needs. Plus, it looks super cool on a shelf or side table.


"Where I've Been" Scratch Map Travel Edition ($25). Everyone loves to travel so why not let the person in question scratch out where they've been?
