If you love your green babies as much as you love quirky design, this modern planter is for you. The circular design subtly incorporates both the planter and saucer into one—just lift the top piece off to reveal drainage holes and a saucer that fits so snugly onto the bottom you’d never know it was a separate piece. That means your plants will be stylish and hydrated enough all the time. Choose from two- or four-tier planters, or get one of each (and a nice bit of dimensional diversity) with the bundle!

The good news: This option is 500 pieces, so it feels more manageable. Plus, it comes in your choice of five different color schemes.

Sometimes less really is more, and this seriously minimalist deck of regulation playing cards proves it. It trades hearts, clubs, diamonds, and spades for small geometric symbols, and switches the intricate, graphic-filled backs with a simple diagonal line. Keep these on the coffee table as entertainment and decor—they work perfectly as both.
