Try these new home-brightening gifts

As you decorate and shop for gifts this holiday season, check out these options:

The spotlight also has a hidden compartment where you can store spare keys.

Gift keeps on giving. The glass globe tillandsia terrarium is an attractive living arrangement for a kitchen, covered porch or anywhere there is indirect light. It can even be hung as an ornament on a Christmas tree and then placed elsewhere for year-round enjoyment. Inside the glass globe are three lovely tillandsia plants: a red Capitata Select, a feathery green Tillandsia Ionantha and a silver-gray Harrisii. The glass globe, which measures 6 inches in diameter, has a 2-inch front opening to remove the plants for watering. Just soak the easy-to-care-for plants in water once a week to ensure their optimum health.
