You used to be able to pick up a box of matches at any restaurant or bar. Now you have to actually shell out a couple of bucks at the hardware store for Diamond matches. Practical they may well be, but the strictly utilitarian box is not necessarily what you want to have lying around next to your fireplace or candles. Check out these great matches by AREO. Who knew that simple match boxes could be so attractive? They're available in many different designs, ranging from seashells to botanicals to wallpaper to slightly funkier ones, such as The Heart and The Good Dog. They make great little gifts, too. $2.90 here.
