Every home needs a little bit of luxury, a little something special. Browsing the aisles at NY Now, New York's twice-annual gifts and housewares show, I spotted plenty of shiny, special things that will add a little something extra to your space. From beautiful hardcover books to high-end cheese boards, there's something here for everyone.

What could be more luxurious than beautiful editions of your favorite books? These are by Rifle Paper Co. (I asked when Crime and Punishment would be available, but I am afraid they did not get my joke.)

A (very beautiful) set of glasses designed specifically for drinking whisky — like the modern version of all those vintage cocktail sets you see on Etsy. By Fferrone.

A serving bowl, or possibly the world's most beautiful fishbowl. The top rests gently on the base, so you can spin it around and make it all space-agey. By Finell.

I've long been an admirer of Rablabs, and I finally got to see some of their products in person at the show. Pictured above are a couple of their Kiva Platters, and their Espera Bowl in copper.

Yamazaki is a favorite new discovery of mine. They have a whole line of incredibly elegant organizing products for the home. You can find some of them on Amazon.

Wouldn't these whisky stones, by Areaware, be the perfect pair with the coasters above? We think so.
