Here’s a gift idea for someone who is big on festive cheer, but low on actual space in which to be festive: the Ornament Centrepiece from Crate and Barrel ($69.95 CND). No tree to assemble. No tinsel to remove from the crevices of the couch months later. It’s a sleek-looking décor accessory with a polished nickle finish that that displays festive handblown glass balls in an understated way (ornaments sold separately).
It can sit on the mantle, a window sill, or the table top for instant holiday cheer. It's the perfect thing to give your urbanite cousin who lives in a 400 sq. ft box in the downtown core (but we’re not judging--think of the resale value!).
