Ulu Knife and Bowl Set

Lehman's
Lehman's

Lehman's

This is a must-have kitchen tool for novice and pro cooks alike. Alaskan natives have been using Ulu knives for centuries, and it's easy to see why: the sharp, crescent-shaped blade makes dicing and mincing in the accompanying bowl a breeze — all you have to do is rock it back and forth. As an added bonus, it doesn't take up a lot of that precious kitchen space.

$29.99, Lehman's

Use it to share an inspirational quote, shopping list, or schedule for the day — with 8,448 spinning flaps, the possibilities are endless. Speaking of those flaps, when the message is changed and they started whirling around, it makes a delightful sound.

Uncommon Goods/Stephen Kitras

This gift serves two purposes — it's a lovely glass orb that will add a pop of color to any garden, while also providing clean drinking water for bees. The orbs have a textured surface and catch enough water (from a hose) so the bees can safely get enough to drink without drowning. Win/win!

Amazon

The description states that these are "wind chimes for people who like their neighbors," and the proof is in the video — instead of dull clanking, these chimes offer melodic tones. All you need for a backyard symphony is a little wind, and who knows, the family next door might come over to enjoy the show.

Each concrete bowl is hand cast and comes with three gel fuel canisters, and there are four colors to choose from: seafoam (my favorite), sand, pewter, and white.

Dried flowers from UrbanStems

UrbanStems

Roses, tulips, peonies, and lilies — all are beautiful in a bouquet, but unfortunately, those don't last forever. If you want to surprise someone with blooms that will stay around awhile, buy them a long-lasting dried flower bouquet. UrbanStems has several vibrant arrangements to choose from, each in a reusable vase. These bouquets can last months, and in some cases years, with proper care. It's a gift that keeps on giving.

Starting at $55, UrbanStems

Pie from the Julian Pie Company

Julian Pie Company

Not everyone can make it to the tiny town of Julian, California, to visit the famous Julian Pie Company. However, thanks to dry ice and overnight delivery, their signature pies can be sent to most addresses in the United States, already baked. With their buttery crusts and fresh, flavorful fillings, you can't go wrong with any of the pies, but the standouts include original apple, strawberry rhubarb, and pecan (there are also several no added sugar varieties).

Starting at $22.95, plus delivery, Julian Pie Company

For the person whose curiosity is insatiable, there's the Mini Museum. Rare specimens from the Earth and outer space are collected, labeled, and encased in lucite acrylic, ready to be put on display (or held for a closer look). Each Mini Museum is handmade in limited quantities, with the latest small Mini Museum (third edition) containing a piece of Steve Jobs' turtleneck, sand from the Earth's oldest river, and rough opal from Australia. The Mini Museum comes with a companion guide that gives detailed information on each specimen, so no question goes unanswered.
